Puerto Vallarta and the Riviera Nayarit, "Exploring Amapas and Conchas Chinas"
Produced By redguide.com May 27, 2009 - 12:49
Conchas Chinas and Amapas are just past Old Town, 45 minutes from the airport.
These are quiet neighborhoods with older apartment buildings and a few hotels. The new developments are high up in the hills.
The draw is the view. You can look down onto the cathedral and roofs of Old Town, or north to the boardwalk, or west to the sea. To the south, there's mountains and pristine forest. From the new buildings at the top of the hills, the views are truly astonishing.
As usual, there are tradeoffs ... in this case, you lose direct access to the town and beach. However, in a few minutes you can descend from your perch and be inside the hive of activity below.
