Going to be staying at Velas Vallarta - first trip there! Anyone have advice on what to do and what not to do?
Downtown is the El Centro area. It's actually the old town but most travel guides/tourists refer to the south side area (ie: over the Rio Cuale) as old town. It's also referenced by travel companies as the zona romantica but to save confusion...
Downtown = El Centro.
old town = south side.
My husband and I stayed at Velas last January for our honeymoon. As others have said it's a beautiful resort. For the best views try and get a room on an upper floor. If you're traveling with a signifcant other, ask for a room with a queen bed (vs two double beds) when you check in.
Take advantage of the bus stops just outside the resort for a trip downtown.
And the best advice I have is don't ask the bartendeds at the pool bar to make you a strong drink. Hubby and I made that mistake and were very VERY sick our last night in PV. :(
