Vallarta North Real Estate
This region is situation between the international airport and the start of downtown Vallarta. Starting at the airport it extends south along the coastline, to Marina Vallarta and down to downtown Puerto Vallarta. Marina Vallarta began with a dream of creating a new level of life on Banderas Bay, where sailboats, yachts and fishing craft could count on a safe harbor. Today, Marina Vallarta is a planned real estate community including both homes and condominiums, a shopping mall, a school, condominiums and first-class hotels, with landscaping throughout. Marina Vallarta's real estate opportunities include marina, oceanfront and fairway homes and condominiums, with oceanfront condominium towers being the newest development. Work on the marina itself, with 450 boat slips, began in 1986. And by 1990, the marina was in full swing, even though it was 1993 before it was completed (ahead of schedule). Now, there are high-rise condominiums along the shoreline, marina-front condos, and homes and small development condominiums along the fairways of the Marina Vallarta golf course. It’s an excellent location that’s close to the airport and not far from downtown Puerto Vallarta and shopping available close by at Plaza Marina.
Along the coastline from Marina Vallarta and the cruise ship terminal, is the Hotel Zone, lined with, of course, hotels, but most recently a number of condominiums high-rise towers (Grand Venetian, Peninsula and Icon Vallarta) that offer spectacular views of the whole bay and downtown Vallarta.
However, as Vallarta has grown, there has been extensive development behind the shoreline heading inland, including developments such as Fluvial and Versalles and towns such as Pitillal, along with residential neighborhoods of differing ages and affluence, well-serviced by a number of shopping centers and stores, such as Sam’s, Wal-Mart, Soriana and Costco. Fluvial is the newest development, offering reasonably priced single family dwelling homesites, condo developments and commercial lots.
