Yesterday we headed over to Marina Vallarta to explore the area and try a new place to eat. If you’re curious as to what the Marina area looks like, just check out our video:
So which is better?
So which one is better? That’s a really tough comparison. As usual with our comparison videos, we don’t believe either one is “better” overall, they are just different. However, they each have their own unique atmosphere that may suit you better depending on what you’re looking for.
If you are coming to Mexico for the first time, or if you just want to really get a feel for what Puerto Vallarta and Mexican culture is like, we suggest Old Town.
If you aren’t a big beach person and you don’t necessarily care to be in a downtown area, or just don’t want to be in the middle of all of the action, Marina Vallarta may be a better fit. Marina Vallarta is a little more expensive in terms of shopping and eating out, but I would imagine that to be the case in marinas across the globe.
In our opinion (we are wrong sometimes), Old Town feels a lot more lively and active and Marina Vallarta, though it has plenty of bars and restaurants, feels like it is suited to a much quieter crowd.
Now that we have spent plenty of time in Puerto Vallarta we can appreciate going to Marina Vallarta and getting a feel for what it is like. I could easily see us living in an area like when we are older and if we had a car that allowed us to more easily get around the city (I know, I know, the buses and taxis run there too).
Hopefully this gave you a little insight into which area of Puerto Vallarta may be better for you. There is no one part that is the BEST, it just #really depends on what you are looking for.

Where Did We Eat
Ah, you just wanted to know where we ate. I don’t blame you!
We had dinner at La Terraza Di Roma. The food was excellent, the service was exceptional, and the views were impeccable.
Greg ordered the lasagna and Hillary ordered the four cheese pasta. We would both recommend ordering those dishes again. However, the pizza smelled SO good that we might consider ordering a pizza next time just based on those smells!
The dinner cost 330 pesos before tip.
For dessert we went to La Federal Vallarta. We highly suggest ordering the Flaming Crepes (I don’t think that’s the actual name, but there is only one crepe dish on the dessert menu so you can’t miss it). We have had a lot of crepes, but that one may have been one of the best we have ever had.
Two desserts cost us just under 200 pesos. Well worth it.
If you are in the Marina area and you want to grab dessert, sip on a nice drink, catch a soccer game, or all three, we highly recommend visiting La Federal Vallarta!

Keep it Kinetic,
