    Despite being touted as a haven for LGBTQ travelers the ZR has something for everyone. Hotels, restaurants, and markets are here in abundance along with an amazing stretch of beach (Dead Man's Beach). It's also an easy walk along the water to the Malecon area.

    Just a couple of [perhaps petty] annoyances: Street merchants will sell you anything (some shady types will breeze by offering you illicit drugs) and might be overly persistent (especially time-share salespeople). Also, the street your hotel is on may not be familiar to your taxi driver so be prepared to give directions if returning here from another part of town.

    All in all though this is a great place to experience Puerto Vallarta.

    You don't have to be religious to appreciate the beauty of this church... you can see the Crown from many places in Vallarta. And, if you are religious, you would also appreciate the beautiful inside!

    There are lots of bars and restaurants around the marina. We tried the El Torito, whihc is near the main entrance of the marina from the main highway. They had a rib promotion going during the week days. These ribs were excellent. I am not a big rib fan, but these were outstanding. We doubled the order and took them away for lunch and dinner the next day!

    Very beautiful picturesque place. I travelled solo on this one as my wife was ill on this day! I'd of loved to have gone and completed this site but all I can review is the beauty of the scene.

    We found this beach close to the Zona Romantica called #lacarreta. Top bar without the hash tag called La Carreta (restaurant/bar)
    I've enclosed pictures of the staff and the boss called Romi! Top people and it became our favourite bar all along the whole beach. Please visit this place! You will not regret the comfort, warm welcoming and sad goodbyes but knowing you will return.

    In September 2022 the footpath is still closed as is the tram to the top. Couple the straight up stair climb with the intense heat/humidity (even at 8:00 am) and it takes a toll on you even if you’re generally pretty fit. Definitely not to be done in flip flops. You will be much happier if wearing sturdy sneakers. Keep an eye out overhead for huge spiders in webs. They attach their webs to the handrails so if you’re on the taller side and walk too close to the edge you’ll get the web tails in your face. No facilities of any kind no at the top. Take plenty of water. View is spectacular.

    You have to walk down rugged steps to get down here. No vendors or food on the beach so bring with you. The water is nice but there are waves.

    We saw the last night of This Is GaGa and it was extraordinary! I would love to see another show here someday soon. Great talent.

    The island sits between the romantic zone and the old town is generally a large market area, the vendors are very happy to chat and not at all pushy, and there are some great photo opportunities , with interesting statues/murals. As it is a real island access is by bridge, there is a large modern bridge near the sea but half way up the island there are a couple of wooden suspension bridges and at the far end, furthest from the sea is a long staircase, and if you proceed up it to the top you will arrive at the former home of Richard Burton and Liz Taylor which is now a hotel.
    I am told that their prices in the market are inflated on Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays ( the days that cruise ships docks ) but I could not substantiate this.

    I would recommend walking the downtown area both during the day and at night. Lovely place. Lots of little restaurants, bars and shops. Friendly people.
