Boho-rustic charmer in Puerto Vallarta’s Romantic Zone, close to both the river and the Pacific Ocean
Forget minimalism: This jewel box of a boutique sleep overlooking Puerto Vallarta’s Rio Cuale is a riot of gem tones, rich textures and eclectic art and antiques. Guests are invited to make themselves at home, whether lounging poolside, dining on the leafy terrace, kicking back in the vibrant lounge area (with its burnt orange walls and arresting art) or feasting on croissants, fruit and coffee in the cozy kitchen — which features a 1930s Portuguese tiled wall and a show-stopping chandelier. Each of the eight guestrooms sports its own unique feel; some have intricate stained glass from Santa Cruz Church, others antique Spanish Colonial wooden doors, carved headboards and balconies, while all have King beds and views of the river or the tranquil pool and terrace.
In the Area
Explore the Romantic Zone south of the Rio Cuale, with its cafés, restaurants and local color, and make sure to drop by the famous Old Town Farmers Market, which peddles home-grown produce along with handmade crafts, jewelry and artisanal goods. Then head to El Malecon, an oceanfront promenade dotted with artworks that's also great for people watching. Don't leave town without getting out on magnificent Banderas Bay, known for its sublime whale watching; sign up for a boat tour with Vallarta Adventures from December to March to see the awe-inspiring humpback whales that make this bay their playground each season. To see why this town is considered one of the essential gourmet destinations in the country, book a table at one of its most feted restaurants, Café des Artistes, which fuses European techniques with Mexican flavors.
