With a convenient location halfway between the airport and Old Town, Puerto Vallarta Hotel Zone real estate is always a popular choice for those looking to buy a vacation home in Mexico. This area is best known for large condominium tower developments, like The Grand Venetian, Peninsula, and Icon, which boast oceanfront locations and wide ocean views.  

These Puerto Vallarta condo developments are particularly popular with real estate investors because they come with highly attractive resort-style amenities, like fully equipped gyms, restaurants, beach clubs, expansive swimming pools, and other communal spaces that make life feel like a permanent vacation. But additionally, these types of amenities are very appealing on the Puerto Vallarta vacation rental market, meaning income generated from short-term rentals can easily help offset the purchase of the property and maintenance costs. 

These condo developments generally feature one, two, three, and sometimes four bedroom layouts and, compared to some newer developments in other areas, generally offer quite spacious floorplans. They also take advantage of their beachfront location with generous terraces to enjoy ocean breezes, Puerto Vallarta sunsets and to see whales breaching during whale-watching season. 

As it is the “hotel zone”, there are a wide array of excellent dining and nightlife options in this neighborhood, as well as two of the largest shopping plazas in the city, one featuring a large grocery store. Banks, pharmacies and other services are also all close at hand. Another lovely feature of this area is a seasonal turtle release program that allows you (with the guidance of trained conservationists) to help baby turtles make the journey to the sea, where they swim off into independence.  

For those looking for a full-time residence in Puerto Vallarta, the convenience and the location make condos for sale in the Hotel Zone an excellent option. For real estate investment buyers looking to purchase a Puerto Vallarta vacation home that offers excellent rental returns, the Hotel Zone offers some of the best opportunities in the city.
