Downtown (Viejo Vallarta) apartment description
Experience living in old Mexico in this brand new deluxe 1345 sq. ft. 2 bedroom one bath apartment. Located just 5 blocks from the Malecon, the famous promenade on the edge of the bay, in the center of Old Town. You can walk to the best shops, art galleries and world class gourmet restaurants that our tropical paradise has to offer. Here above the tile roofs, the view from the living room, portal and patio, that encompasses the entire north bay and the original Puerto Vallarta, is breathtaking.
Located in a cul de sac of a 100% Mexican neighborhood you have the opportunity of experiencing the true culture of Mexico. The apartment sleeps four in two airy, well lit bedrooms and any number of children, on air mattresses, in the 412 sq. ft roofed portal.
Cooks will love the large, fully equipped kitchen. Purified water, a microwave, a washer and dryer, ceiling fans in every room (sorry no air conditioning) as well as high speed wireless internet hookup, cable TV, a sound system, and maid service is included at no extra charge. In the evening as you sit in the patio, mesmerized by the lights of the city beneath you, margarita in hand watching the nightly display of fireworks coming from the sailing ship Marigalante and listening to the ever present Mexican serenade, you may wonder why you ever bother to go any place else.

Wonderful authentic Mexican location for a family
Wonderful authentic Mexican location for a family
We stayed about 2 weeks at El Taller and definately could have stayed longer! We have two small children ages 2 & 5 years and this was a perfect location, it truly felt like a home. Everything about the house was great and will mention below, but the most memorable event from our stay was our kids being invited to one of the neighbor boys birthday party, sharing in a that celebration was a rare treat that makes staying in a home so worthwhile. The ameneties like the beautiful kitchen and washer & dryer were a real plus for a longer stay with kids. Very close to the hussle & bussle of old town PV, yet away from traffic noise with a sense of privacy. The quality and thoughtfulness of design, layout and finishes really added something special to an already great location. We looked forward every evening to the view of Banderas Bay and hills to the north. We also look forward to returning to El Taller.

A friend and I stayed at El Taller at the end of March. It was lovely. The views were spectacular, the furnishings charming. The living room and kitchen opened to the terrace giving a wonderful spacious openness. The walk up the steps from where a taxi can let you off to the condo can be challenging. We never attempted it after dark. The owners thought of everything. There was coffee and filters, everything you could want was there - including a blender for margaritas to sip while watching the beautiful sunset.

Scott and I vacationed in Puerto Vallarta and stayed at El Taller. We awoke each morning to the sounds and sites of the original Old Town below us and Banderas Bay. On our first morning we took a short walk down a cobble-stoned street greeting our neighbors with "Buenos Dias" and enjoyed a delicious breakfast at Mama Rosa’s. . What amazed us is the apartment is totally open to the sites of the city and sea, and yet safe high above the street. New, charming, clean and beautifully decorated, El Taller is located in the center of Old Town. Our neighbors were friendly and it was an easy walk to downtown and the Malecon on the edge of the bay. We loved the apartment’s airiness and spaciousness. Scott, an artist, sketched views of the city and Banderas Bay from the living room and patio. When we weren’t’ eating at local restaurants, we enjoyed preparing lunches and snacks in the large fully equipped kitchen A little neighborhood tienda provided us cold beer. In the afternoons we sat outside our door chatting with our friendly Mexican neighbors. A highlight of our stay was dancing to live music with the locals on Sunday evening in the El Jardin Principal. El Taller met all our expectations; a wonderful romantic get-away and we highly recommend it!! Marti Sukoski and Scott Adams---
