Rinconada de las Ostras #105 S/N
Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco
Puerto Vallarta is a city of romance and history — a fairy-tale like former fishing village with cobblestone streets, whitewashed houses with red-tiled roofs. For hillside lovers in need of a spectacular view, WIVC Conchas Chinas is the spot for you, nestled in an exclusive hillside, slightly away from the hustle and bustle of downtown, but with easy access to all that’s exciting surrounding the picturesque Bay of Banderas.
The pleasant swimming pool and obligatory hillside/ocean-view terraces are entrancing spots to dawdle, read, write, snooze or let your body soak in the fragrant flowers and ocean breezes. A walk downward (upward is a different story, although many guests take the trek quite often), are the beachfront restaurants, right on the wave-washed shore, or visit the center of Old Town — just a short drive (or taxi-ride) away.
The capable receptionists and staff can highlight 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 live musical life as youngsters stroll about, hand-in-hand. Enchanting.
