Prolongacion Pulpito #115 Col. Alta Vista
Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco
Farther down the coastline from the bustling Old Town and village, is the multi-storied WIVC Alta Vista; each suite has its own stunning views, again nestled in the hillside above the beloved Bay of Banderas, where clean beaches and rocky outcrops remind you that you hover above one of the most beautiful bays in the world.
Featuring a fascinating resident Iguana (admire but beware) on the white entry wall, as usual, the capable receptionists and staff can point out the spots to visit, whether it be for zip-lining over the river (courage required) or strolling the Malecón where the central bandstand bursts into musical life as youngsters stroll about, hand-in-hand. If seclusion (plus visits to the famous Puerto Vallarta hotspots) is your idea of a really exotic vacation, then this is the place for you. In reality, as attractive as your suite is, with the views and leisurely living, you will be hard-pressed to drag yourself away to the myriad attractions of this famous resort. And speaking of iguanas, this area was the site for the famous filming of “Night of the Iguanas”, with Ava Gardner, Richard Burton in toe with Elizabeth Taylor, who eventually bought a house in Old Town’s “Gringo Gulch” which still is a touristic attraction.
