The Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Puerto Vallarta

4.6
#1 of 8 in Historic Sites in Puerto Vallarta
An iconic gem of downtown Vallarta’s skyline, The Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe offers unrivalled serenity. The relatively new church was not officially completed until 1987 when the front side and lateral towers were finally finished, although its construction began on October 12th 1921, a date still celebrated in the church today. Enjoy a tranquil stroll through the endearing structure, its architecture a patchwork of styles displaying an eclectic mix of neoclassical design, renaissance towers and a wrought iron crown echoing European baroque design.

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.
