Getting around in hotel zone.
The area we refer to as hotel zone begins right after 5 de diciembre, as you are heading into town from points north. In fact, you know you’ve arrived once the pavement on Francisco Medina Ascencio, Puerto Vallarta’s main thruway, has been replaced by brick roads and cobblestones.
As you arrive from points north, you will find yourself in Colonia 5 de Diciembre. Several medium-sized hotels and Teatro Vallarta, the city’s largest dedicated indoor performance space, are located here. Ley’s Super market is also located on Av. Mexico. El Centro begins at the city’s historic Malecón and continues south until reaching Isla Río Cuale.
Puerto Vallarta’s Playa Camarones is just a few minutes away commonly used for walking and swimming, and can be easily accessed through several dead-end streets.
