5 DE DICIEMBRE
The peaceful yet funky Cinco de Diciembre community, just north of El Centro, is known for its authentic atmosphere and laid-back vibe. Living there can be an enriching experience if you immerse yourself in the culture.
The area encompasses the beautiful Playa Camarones and backs right into the hills-meaning some homes are blocks away from the beach on the flats, and others are high up in the hills with sweeping views of the water and city lights.
The welcoming community has a mix of residential and commercial areas. You can find cozy family homes or new luxury condos at various budgets, so you’ll certainly find something that fits your needs.
If you think Cinco de Diciembre may have your dream property, contact us so we can you around.
El Centro is the core of downtown—the heart of the action.
Its vivacious and bustling neighborhood has cobblestone streets, vibrant-colored buildings, and traditional architecture.
The area is bursting at the seams with life, and there is rarely a dull or quiet, moment. Tourists come for the Malecon (boardwalk), Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe and the Rio Cuale market. And residents love it for its blend of authentic culture and old-world charm.
Whether you choose a renovated apartment or a more traditional home, you’ll only be blocks from the beach. Mostly flat blocks. There are virtually no hills in El Centro.
Living in El Centro means never missing a beat. Contact us to learn more about the properties available today.
El Cerro is a peaceful escape nestled in the hills of Puerto Vallarta. Where El Centro is mostly flat, the cobblestone streets of El Cerro start the upward climb into the hills and mountains, meaning your home will have breathtaking views of Banderas Bay and the rest of the city.
The neighborhood is a hidden treasure—it’s that welcome relief from the hustle and bustle of the rest of the city.
Despite its secluded feel, it’s downtown. Living here means having your cake and eating it too—peace and quiet, yet steps away from all the action.
The picturesque neighborhood is primarily residential and has many luxury homes, villas, and smaller condo developments.
If real estate in El Cerro sounds like your ideal location, we can help you find the perfect property to call home. Contact us today.
Gringo Gulch is a charming and historic neighborhood right in the heart of Centro North. It’s nestled in the hills and overlooks the Cuale River, so living here means having a good set of wheels, or legs, to carry you up and down the stairs and steep streets.
But with steep streets come mind-blowing views of the river, the Pacific Ocean and the verdant Sierra Madre Mountains.
As stunning as the views are, it’s the scandalous affair between Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor that put Gringo Gulch, Puerto Vallarta, on the map. While filming the Night of the Iguana and staying there, Burton constructed a bridge between their two casitas to hide from the paparazzi. Today, their two homes have been reconstructed into a boutique hotel called Casa Kimberly.
When residents of Gringo Gulch are feeling peckish, they can enjoy The Iguana, Casa Kimberly’s world-renowned eatery, as well as La Capella, a heavenly Italian restaurant overlooking Banderas Bay.
