El Faro Lighthouse, Puerto Vallarta

3.8
#4 of 8 in Historic Sites in Puerto Vallarta
At El Faro Lighthouse, take in picturesque views over the Pacific Ocean from one of Puerto Vallarta’s primary landmarks. At the top of the 33 m (110 ft) high structure, find a circular cocktail lounge. Have a delicious drink at the fancy bar, known as one of the local area’s most romantic night spots. If you stay late enough, you'll be rewarded with an eye-pleasing sunset. The lighthouse now stands primarily for show rather than practicality, with its visibility limited by the surrounding buildings.

  • A lounge bar, small but very nice! Extensive list of drinks of all types and qualities, good service and obviously, extraordinary view. We are delighted to bring our guests to enjoy a drink and good conversation, this time was no exception, we brought my brothers and we spend some time at home, they were delighted. Don't forget to visit it!

  • Great drinks, but horrible DJ! They allowed us to choose some songs, then told us (after we tipped them) "ok, that's enough with that music, people want to listen to other things" we closed out tabs. As we were leaving they put English sad depressing music on....the songs we chose liven the place up. FYI the dj was playing candy crush and playing songs off of YouTube!
  • It has a beautiful view to enjoy a good conversation or a romantic time ask me how marriage in that place, the staff is super friendly and helpful thousand thanks for all your attentions

  • Of the best places in Puerto Vallarta their bar at 10m height approximately makes it unique as the city can be seen from there.

Where to stay in Puerto Vallarta

The appropriately named Hotel Zone, at the coastal fringe of the city center, serves as one of the most popular areas to stay, with equally good access to the beach and the amenities within the city. Private rentals are particularly popular, with the Hotel Zone and the equally vibrant hub of Emiliano Zapata to the south offering plenty of condominiums to complement the range of budget, mid-range, and luxury hotels. Many of the city's best gay-friendly accommodations are found at the southern fringe of the old town.
