Go to the Town Hall and take there free walking tour. Very worth it. You have the choice of north or south PV (separate tours). Our guide was very informative. Small tip (200 pesos) recommended.

Do yourself a favor and skip all of the resorts and all of Nuevo Vallarta. If you want to savor your trip and really experience PV, stay in Old Town!

The so called flea market has changed somewhat. While there used to be a varietyo of offeroings, now it appears to be prretty much the standard tourist collection. The area itself is not what most would expect when they hear the term "old Town."

The old Vallerta must be seen by walking, cobblestones, streets are stairs, many art galleries. Don 't miss walking on Hidalgo, Matamoros, Sanchez

If you go to PV you MUST go to Old Town. The cobblestone irregular streets reek of Old World Spanish Charm. Easy and cheap to get to from area hotels by bus, cab or tour. There are activities, shops and dining of every imaginable type...More
