Our condo is located on one of the best beaches in Puerto Vallarta. We are on Conchas Chinas beach, just a 5 minute taxi ride from the old town, or a 20 minute walk along the beach. Wikipedia describes Conchas Chinas as:
…an affluent colonia directly south of Puerto Vallarta in the state of Jalisco, on the Pacific coast of Mexico. The term Conchas Chinas means "Chinese Shells" referring to the type of shell found only on the beaches of Conchas Chinas. Locals in Puerto Vallarta refer to Conchas Chinas as "The Hills" (as in 'the Beverly Hills of Puerto Vallarta'). There are many gated communities perched high on the mountainsides directly on the bay, with many million-dollar homes owned by internationally-known celebrities and politicians.
The beach is bordered by rock outcroppings that create a wonderful tidal pool for small children
