  • Downside - high pressure sales and some high prices in some shops. Upside - real Mexican food upstairs - with friendly service. Recommend coming here for real Mexican food.
  • Unless you don't bargain, you have paid more than doubled on clothing and handcrafted items including jewellery. If they say 1000 pesos, you start with 400 and you may end up between 500 to 700. Nice collections and candy store on the street is amazing. They sale nice salasa, spices, candies and other edibles. This market is fun to stroll around and you will like the old style charm.. The location is very convenient as it's next to broadwalk in downtown Peurto Vallarta.
  • Mexican Sunday market. Not same old closet stuff. Different with some genuine real artist. Real mom pop Mexican food.
  • This Mercado never changes. Lots of vendors with lots of tourist merchandise. Although the vendors are insistent, they are polite and will accept no for an answer. T-shirts with any kind of saying you want - nice, naughty, or yucky - are in every other stand. Handwoven tablecloths, hats, toys, leather goods, sofa throws, and much more. The vendorscexpect you to bargain, but be fair as this is their livelihood.
  • Great Mexican family restaurants upstairs. Very cheap and wonderful food.

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.
