Puerto Vallarta — Sur
The South Coast of Puerto Vallarta begins where Conchas Chinas ends, and from there it runs along the coast past the residential developments of Garza Blanca and Sierra del Mar to Boca de Tomatlán, where the highway turns east and heads toward the mountains of the Sierra Madre towards El Tuito. Although the highway ends, the South Coast border continues along the coast, but without road access there are very few opportunities on the road or in real estate.
Along this coast is where the first gated communities were built on the slopes of the region. Today, there are several of them, mainly offering single-family residences or villas. Sandwiched are small oceanfront condo projects. The views are so good that hillside real estate prices often rival those of beachfront homes. South Shore is still relatively close to the city center, making it easy to frequent restaurants or stroll along the Malecon.
