Bring good walking shoes! They have done much to make the area walking friendly - but keep in mind this IS Mexico - and there are cobblestones everywhere. Still felt very safe - until you try and cross the street

I feel it has become a victim of it's own success, hence lost it's charm. A sure place to get a standard meal at a reasonable price.

Each year we stroll on this street to see what is new re shops or restaurants. Very lively street. Can get super congested at night with the bars. Quite loud.

Olas Atlas is our favourite street in Puerto Vallarta. Lots to see and do, very busy, the traffic has really got much busier.

Olas Atlas is a great way to stroll the whole Malecon, have lunch dinner, and shop along the way. You can literally have a taste of all of old town with out deviating Olas Atlas too much.

A bunch of bars and restaurants like you would find in most cities in the USA or Canada. Not Mexico. Very crowded and loud.

Olas Altas has the best combination of bars, restaurants and shops in old town Puerto Vallarta, hands down!

We came here only for a lunch snack while resting on the beach, because it was close. The food was well prepared and well served. Prices were good however the lunch menu was not as extensive as desired. The dinner menu looked good with some interesting items listed. We didn't have enough time to return however.

This is the place to be for the PV nightlife. Any kind of bar or restaurant is available here. So much to do and see.
