Our hotel was within walking distance to the marina in Puerto Vallarta. We enjoyed the marina and it was an easy walk from our hotel, Velas Vallarta. It was also a nice break from going downtown. We ate at Porta Bella--a great meal, good price and great view. We also enjoyed Banana Fajhta except for the guy there trying to sell us stuff while we were eating!! Also the Coffee Cup was a great spot for a breakfast, quick lunch or snack--very friendly staff, cheap and free internet (with meal purchase). We also met Jonathan of Charly's sailing and sportsfishing--a great guy, originally from Calif. We did not book a trip from him--had those already planned but I think next time, I will wait and go thru him. The shopping was pretty good--the best place is LaBrisa--for silver jewerly--go see Rosy. She is awesome, speaks perfect English, is funny and the prices are great!!! If you go there, tell her Lisa from Chicago said Hello!!!! We all loved Rosy!!
Overall, the marina is a nice area--just we careful of all the time share people--they are everywhere!!! My biggest complaint about Puerto Vallarta is the pushy time share people--I have traveled to many other parts of Mexico and have not found it anywhere else--not sure why but......still a great place--again go see Rosy!!!!
