Puerto Vallarta Romantic Zone Photo Gallery

If you check out our map of the zones in Puerto Vallarta, you'll notice that just south of downtown Puerto Vallarta, crossing the Cuale River, you arrive in what is called the Romantic Zone or Old Vallarta (Viejo Vallarta). This part of town offers a traditional feel, more like a Mexican town, with square blocks, small stores, cobblestone streets and the very popular Cafe Street (Olas Altas St.) and the most active beach in town: Los Muertos Beach.

Puerto Vallarta Before and After Photos (Gallery 1)

Here's a number of before and after photos for Puerto Vallarta and surroundings. It's always fun, interesting, nostalgic to see towns from before they grew up before they became known, and just wonder at how things change, and sometimes don't change. Most photos are from the 1950s and 1960s, around the time the local photo studios established themselves in the town.

Mismaloya Photo Gallery

Mismaloya is a beach, bay and a fisherman village just 9 miles south of Puerto Vallarta. The beach in the early sixties was used as the set for a famous movie directed by John Huston, The Night of the Iguana, which included Hollywood stars like Richard Burton, Ava Gardner and Deborah Kerr. At that time there was no access by land and both stars and supplies were brought in by sea and delivered at a special pier they built for the film. The sets used for the movie are still standing, though currently there is no access. This photo gallery offers some different views of Mismaloya, we hope you enjoy them, if you do, remember to Like and share this photo gallery too. © These photos are the property of M. A.

Historical Puerto Vallarta Photos

Having visited Puerto Vallarta in the more recent years, you would never imagine the city was once a small rural fisherman town. Luckily there is photographic proof, here we present a series of old historical photos, many are without dates, some are more or less figured out by the quality of the photos and the people that appear in them, some appear with dates. Time passes, we try to forget the fact, try to think we are eternal, these photos remind us just how fast time passes and just how much changes everything in its path. Wake up wake up you sleepy heads... Read more about the city's history. See photos that compare Vallarta's past with the present

Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish / Church Photo Gallery

Our Lady of Guadalupe Parish (the church some wrongly call Cathedral) is without a doubt the city's icon and it certainly dominates downtown Puerto Vallarta. There is no way you can visit the city and not see it and have a few photos of different angles. Though not an impressive building in size, its design is very characteristic and even unique, a blend of different styles that add up to a surprisingly beautiful structure that embellishes the heart of Vallarta. This gallery showcases a few of the nice photos and views this architectural monument has to offer. © See photo credits for ownership.
