|About these ratings|
This charming south side neighborhood is like a detached, unpretentious beach village that serves PV's more laid-back and less resort-conscious tourists. It's also the center of the city's strong gay population, and has a host of gay beaches, bars and restaurants.
Most agree that Zona Romantica is a must-see. The area contains the city's best restaurants, excellent cultural opportunities and the most popular beach in the city: Playa Los Muertos. One traveler on TripAdvisor notes, "If you stay away from the beach, you will encounter neighborhood shops, such as little grocery stores, tailors, restaurants, internet cafes, and other similar stores." The same reviewer also found there are fewer peddlers selling souvenirs.
