The “Isla del Río Cuale”, the Cuale Island, currently is a peaceful and relaxed shade-rich oasis in the middle of downtown Puerto Vallarta.

The Cuale River is one of the seven rivers that start off in the Sierra Madre Mountains and end up in the Banderas Bay, it divides the town into the downtown area north of the river and the Romantic Zone (Old Vallarta) to the south with the Cuale River Island laying in between.
