We stopped in for after dinner drinks on our way back to our resort. Sunset viewing is wonderful! After dark, the marina is just as lovely. Drinks are not cheap. The atmosphere is what you pay for. If you go on a Thursday evening, you can stroll along the marina's walkways to enjoy local food and artisan vendors. Great selection... More

The Marina area is nice to visit anytime, but they do have a vendor event on Thursday nights. We went and were pleased with the variety. In some ways I wish I had waiting and not shopped anywhere else beforehand.

The Marina is such a pretty place with a much more modern feel than the rest of Vallarta. The El Faro Lighthouse makes for great pictures.

This is an excellent place to have a drink with good views across the marina. It does get busy on Thursday evening when the cruise ships dock

A visit here is always about the view! Service is usually very good and drink prices are reasonable. No surprises here. It was a great way to end a romantic evening.

A must stop if in the Marina, especially if at dusk. Sunsets are a sight to behold from the lighthouse. Good drinks but no food

We were chasing sunset views but this really did not get us what we wanted. Worth the visit to look over the Marina if you like that view, boats, coming in and out and planes taking off (which you can see almost anywhere in Hotel Zone. There are stairs and an elevator. If you are there for the vendor market... More
