When searching for Puerto Vallarta real estate for sale, buyers will often put a good deal of importance on the view of the bay or surrounding mountains – one of the area's most incredible visual features. This feature is best balanced with location and convenience.
When it comes to views, few real estate options rival Puerto Vallarta condos. With the city rising up onto the hillsides, many condos, both on the beachfront, and on the hillside areas, offer spectacular views of the large Bay of Banderas, as well as the Sierra Madre mountains rising on all sides of the city.
As with all Mexico condos for sale, location is also an important factor. Being close to the beach, shopping centers, marinas, downtown's beachfront boardwalk, the airport and other services and activities is convenient. Many buyers prefer a walking distance to a certain number of shopping and dining options.
While the traditional favorite has been condos on the beachfront, it is by no means necessary to own on the beachfront to enjoy a good combination of view and location. In fact, many communities back from the beachfront offer a superb combination of both, usually at a much more accessible price.
This having been said, excellent deals and price reductions can also easily be found directly on the beachfront for those willing to wait for the right property.
Some of the areas to consider in Puerto Vallarta for condos that combine excellent views, convenient location and lower prices include the following:
- Amapas is located right next to downtown on a hillside, and offers short walk to downtown's dining, shopping and nightlife, as well as the boardwalk. The views from the hillside are also splendid. Cab rides back up the hill are very affordable.
- Alta Vista is in the south-east part of town, just where the hillside begins. It likewise offers a short walk downtown. In both these areas, condos start around $200,000 USD.
- Nuevo Vallarta is about 30 minutes north of town, and offers excellent modern shopping centers, a professionally designed golf course and a large population of Americans and Canadians.
- 5 de Diciembre is a traditionally working-class neighborhood located where downtown begins to rise up the hillside at the back. Because of the excellent location, expat buyers have just begun to take notice, and a transformation can already be seen taking place.
If you are looking for the ideal combination of view, convenience, beachfront lifestyle and accessible prices, Puerto Vallarta will certainly be at the top your choices.
