Puerto Vallarta and any city in Mexico are divided into many “Colonias” or neighborhoods if you will. Here’s a map that shows most, if not all, the colonias in the city: Some of the most important colonias are: Residencial Conchas Chinas: Hillside SE from Los Muertos beach. Colonia Alta Vista Colonia Emiliano Zapata: South of the Cuale River (Zona Romántica or “Old Town”) Colonia Caloso and Canoas: East of Colonia Emiliano Zapata and up the Cuale River. Colonia Centro: The oldest section of Puerto Vallarta and its current downtown area too – North of the Cuale river up until Parque Hidalgo. Colonia 5 de Diciembre: Just north of downtown Vallarta (Centro), and with Colonia Emiliano Zapata was of the first neighborhoods beyond Colonia Centro to be developed. Colonia Lázaro Cardenas: Includes a large sports complex and the city’s largest fish market, from Parque Hidalgo to the Libramiento (City Bypass). Colonia Versalles: The Old Zona Rosa, prior to the development of the Northern Hotel Zone. Colonia Bugambillas and Ramblases: Located on the NW slopes of the hills, East of the city. Colonia Pitillal: Once a small town and now a populous neighborhood, a separate “delegación” but now part of the city of Puerto Vallarta proper. Colonia is normally abbreviated: “Col.” Last updated on February 27, 2021 12:14Puerto Vallarta Fast Facts, Travel Tips & Information| Share This Story, Choose Your Platform!
