The “Romantic Zone” or Zona Romantica is actually a strip of hotels in Puerto Vallarta, where couples and lovers spend a few days to rendezvous. This is just a small section of the center of the city, located at the River
Cuale and is part of the Old Town of the island. Unlike the northern area, buildings and sights here are not updated, but there’s actually a nostalgic feel to it.
The Romantic Zone has a few family friendly hotels though, so you can actually bring your kids to this district, if you’re comfortable. The Romantic Zone also has a few hotels that gay couples frequent.
There are also plenty of shops and bars, as well as restaurants in the area, so this is also a place for pairs to go on dates. Be prepared to see nothing extra ordinary about the establishments though, at least nothing that stands out compared to the rest of Puerto Vallarta.
