The charm of Old Mexico is obvious in Puerto Vallarta, with its traditional buildings and monuments such as Our Lady of Guadalupe church, The Malecon and the Plaza de Armas, as well as its cobblestone streets, tile roofs and typical houses with white walls made of adobe. In addition to making it an area highly appreciated by both residents and visitors, these elements make up the city’s first block and serve as invaluable historical and architectural collections. Due to its importance, the Secretaría de Cultura de Jalisco (Ministry of Culture of Jalisco) has designated the historic center of Puerto Vallarta as a Cultural Heritage site.

This appointment will allow the preservation of the image of this important area and will be an incentive for more people to come with a desire to get to know its attributes. Undoubtedly, this action comes at a very opportune moment, as Puerto Vallarta celebrates its first century as a municipality and its 50th anniversary as a city.

“Puerto Vallarta’s historic center is the heart of our city and a major attraction to our visitors and, like all world heritage sites, it must be recognized as an irreplaceable part of our legacy,” said Javier Aranda Pedrero, director of the Puerto Vallarta Tourism Board. “We applaud the actions taken by Jalisco’s Department of Culture and welcome everyone to enjoy this iconic part of the city.”
