Eat, Sleep and Play in Marina Vallarta

Marina Vallarta is a charming area that is located just 2 minutes from the international airport and 15 minutes from down town Puerto Vallarta.

The marina hosts many luxury yachts and sailboats in its 450 slips. Some of the boats are here year round, while others are here for a season, or just a day or two to rest before continuing on their journey.

The marina has a beautiful boardwalk lined with many shops, spas, and restaurants which makes it a great place for window shopping, people watching and enjoying a good meal. It is also the place where you can book a fishing trip with one of the many fishing charter companies in Puerto Vallarta.

Here in the marina you will find restaurants in every price range to suit all budgets. There are a couple of places that specialize in breakfast, while other restaurants only open in the evenings.

You will find Seafood, Italian, Chinese, and Mexican restaurant options to choose from, as well as a couple of sports bars, where you can keep up on Hockey, Football, Soccer, UFC etc. Continue reading “Eat, Sleep and Play in Marina Vallarta”

How Is a Condo Best for Your Trip?

I like to visit Puerto Vallarta in the off-season because there are lots of gorgeous and cheap accommodations available and there are no crowds. Locals are less stressed and deals abound everywhere I turn.

But how does one find these accommodation deals in Puerto Vallarta or anywhere else?

Sure, hotels offer convenient access to more services. For short stays, hotels are ideal. Everything is easy, but if staying long, hotels cost a lot and don’t feel homey.

Condos offer my regular living style. With a stocked kitchen and linens, I can settle in to enjoy a place for weeks or months at a time. It becomes a second home.Painting of Puerto Vallarta

Most important to me, condos cost a lot less than hotels. An off-season rental can be dirt cheap.

I like to live pretty well. Currently, my rental is a gorgeous two-bedroom condo two blocks from the best beach in the area for 7000 pesos (about $550) a month including utilities, cable tv, and high-speed internet. Next month, my partner is returning to the U.S. so I’ll rent a one-bedroom for 3500 pesos (about $275).

Even lower rental prices are available. I just happen to like this particular condo.

You can find these types of deals in the Vallarta area with just a little help. Contact me at Dora@OldVallarta.com and I’ll share how.
