The Aralias neighborhood is often chosen for its location close to major through fares and modern shopping. More local services are available in these ‘non-tourist’ areas too, without having to fight the occasional busloads of tourists gawking on the sidewalk in El Centro.
As Puerto Vallarta has grown, Aralias has become popular residential neighborhood for the people who live and work here. It is quieter than downtown with some view of only the mountains. Prices tend to be in the low to mid range. This is the inland zone on the right-hand side of Francisco Medina Ascencio, the main street heading north from town, extending north and east from the intersection with Libramiento.
