The Barrio (Spanish for neighborhood)
Villa Mercedes is located in the heart of the Romantic Zone of Puerto Vallarta, a district of Old Town known for its bohemian character with numerous sidewalk cafes, restaurants, galleries, and bars. The area embodies most of what makes Vallarta a unique destination in the Mexican Riviera: cobble-stone streets, sidewalk cafes, red tile roofs, traditional Mexican architecture, a mix of upscale boutiques and local shops, a vibrant street-life, a broad array of dining options, nightlife, lush tropical surrounding mountains, breathtaking views, beach, sun, and a sense of community. This is the closest it gets to real Mexico in the Pacific Riviera.
The Villa is literally steps away from Los Muertos Beach, one of Puerto Vallarta’s most iconic, with numerous beach clubs catering to all tastes and ages. Los Muertos has been Vallarta’s favorite beach for generations and is also the playground for locals, tourists, expats, and the gay community.
