Welcome to Condo Vista del Rio! We spent many years looking for the perfect holiday home and were thrilled when we found this bright, spacious condo so close to the beaches, markets and restaurants we've come to enjoy.
Located on a quiet side street in the Zona Romantica, Condo Vista del Rio is a luxuriously finished 2 Bedroom-2 Bathroom condo in a small, boutique style building overlooking the Cuale River. Within a few short, flat blocks you will find Los Muertos Beach, The Malecon, Isla Cuale, shops, restaurants, café’s, live theater and the Emiliano Zapata outdoor food market.
Working with a local architect, we customized the interior to take advantage of the open floor plan, 11’ ceilings and spectacular views. Embracing traditional Mexican craftsmanship and the simplicity of mid-century modern design, we have created a carefree vacation home where the living areas flow easily from indoors to out allowing guests to enjoy Puerto Vallarta’s tropical climate.
The Kitchen and huge eating island with granite counters are ideal for cooking a large multi-course meal, a quick lunch or just having a glass of wine and reheating your leftovers from last night’s dinner. There is an icemaker, blender, toaster and your choice of Kuerig, Drip or Espresso coffee makers. A separate bar area offers extra storage and glassware. All of the appliances have been upgraded and the Kitchen is fully equipped for cooking, baking or entertaining.
The Living Room opens onto the Terrace and has a comfortable sectional sofa, large wall mounted 4K HD Smart TV with Shaw Satellite, Apple TV, Blu Ray/DVD Player and Soundbar.
Both Bedrooms have high quality pillow top mattresses, luxurious 100% cotton bed linens and towels, wall mounted Smart TV’s, ample storage space, ceiling fans and ensuite bathrooms with hotel style vanities and oversized glass showers. The Main Bedroom has an extra long King Sized Bed and the Second Bedroom has a King Sized Bed that can be split into two single beds upon request.
On the Terrace, there is a full sized gas grill, dining table for 4 to 6 people and a comfortable daybed. You’ll enjoy 180° views across the river and treetops out to Banderas Bay and Punta Mita. In the early evening, you may be able to hear the Mariachi’s from Casa Kimberley (Elizabeth Taylor’s former home) and, after dark; you’ll see the Crown on the Church and nightly fireworks.
For warmer days, there are ultra quiet ceiling fans and high-efficiency mini-split air conditioners in the main Living Area and both Bedrooms. Also included are a Washer/Dryer, Iron, Ironing Board, Hair Dryer, soaps, shampoo and paper products. Housekeeping service will be provided weekly during your stay.
Connectivity and Entertainment
There is high-speed internet with good wi-fi coverage throughout the condo and the terrace. We usually have 150-200 mb/sec, but the actual speed can vary at different times of the day.
All of the TV’s are HD and connected to the internet so that you can enjoy YouTube, Netflix, Amazon and many other apps. The Living Room TV is also connected to Satellite TV service with appx 80 channels including the major US and Canadian Networks, CNN and many lifestyle channels. The Living Room TV has a Blu Ray/DVD Player, Apple TV and a soundbar that can be connected to your device or stream music from Apple, Spotify or one of the music channels offered on Shaw. We’ve also included a high-quality portable speaker with a Bluetooth connection.
There is a Vonage voice-over-internet telephone with a Canadian phone number that will allow you to stay in touch with family and friends in the US, Canada and many other countries and the US toll-free. Mexican landline phones can also be called without any extra charges.
Rooftop Pool, Spa, and Gym
There is a large solar heated dipping pool with a built-in bench plus a Spa/Hot Tub with Sun Shade. There are lounge chairs and dining tables plus BBQ’s, a shower and washrooms. This area enjoys incredible views of the mountains, river, ocean, and city.

Colonia Emiliano Zapata, which is also known as The Romantic Zone or Old Town, is a small walkable neighbourhood nestled between Banderas Bay and the Sierra Madre Mountains. Los Muertos Beach and The Malecon is a short walk to the west and directly across from the condo is the Isla Cuale with lush greenery, restaurants, quiet spaces and stairs up to the Gringo Gulch neighbourhood.
Puerto Vallarta International Airport (PVR) is about 20-30 minutes away by taxi or city bus. There is regular bus service from Guadalajara, Mexico City and many other parts of Mexico. A reserved parking space is available upon request.
We love how pedestrian friendly this neighborhood is... within a few minutes walk you can be at the beach, restaurants, cafe's, shops, a vibrant outdoor food market or really get away from it all by walking across the swinging bridge to Isla Cuale and relax in a hammock and listen to the river.
Shopping Centers, modern movie theaters, large grocery and warehouse stores are about 15-20 minutes away by taxi or uber and include La Isla Shopping Village, Galerias Vallarta, Costco, Walmart, Sam's Club, Le Comer and several other grocery stores.
If you are looking to venture outside of Vallarta, there are water taxi's to Yelapa and Las Animas Beach from the pier on Los Muertos Beach or take a bus south to the Zoo or Botanical Gardens. Taxi's and Uber's are plentiful and inexpensive.
All windows and doors have bug screens. Each Bedroom has a safe and one of them is large enough to accommodate most laptop and notebook computers. Beach/Pool towels, Beach Bag and Tommy Bahama beach chairs are provided. An elevator serves all levels of the building including the Rooftop.
No pets are allowed.
As part of our effort to reduce our impact on the planet and acknowledging that electricity usage can be expensive in Mexico, we have installed energy efficient LED lighting, appliances, ceiling fans and inverter air conditioning units. The cooktop, oven and dryer are gas operated. The mini split air conditioners cool a room in approximately 10-20 minutes should only be used when a room is occupied. Please do leave any doors or windows open while an air conditioner is running.
