The complex: Our home is part of a magnificent condo complex where you will be surrounded by beautifully maintained tropical flowers, plants, & trees. The low-rise low-density buildings artfully tuck into the perimeter of what seems like a botanical garden. In the center is the fabulous HEATED zero-entry, infinity-edge pool with spa, and large pool deck with breath-taking views of mountain, city, & ocean, pool deck WIFI, workout facility, kitchen, and washrooms. There are handmade tables and chairs under the large palapa and padded lounge chairs & umbrellas for sun and relaxation. This peaceful oasis is set right in the middle of the liveliest part of town, called the Zona Romantica, Old Town, or Los Muertos Beach area. You are 2 blocks from the best beach in PV and 3-10 minutes walk to lots of great restaurants, lively bars & entertainment, shops, banks, ATMs, buses, taxis, quickmarts, liquor stores, bakeries, drug stores, a full grocery store, the River Cuale, and the Malecon.
Zona Romantica/Old Town/Los Muertos Beach: We love this part of town. The cobble stone streets and natural beach are alive with people having a great time all day and half the night. You can play in the sand or swim; go parasailing; fish in the surf; go to sunset cocktail hour on the beach and then have a terrific inexpensive dinner in bare feet; arrange a tour; dine at an upscale restaurant; watch the whales playing on the Bay; have Peking duck made by a Beijing chef; buy handcrafted silver jewelry and local handicrafts; listen to live music; see the Pirate Ship's fireworks display on the Bay at night; take a water taxi to a nature reserve; be serenaded by a mariachi band of little boys; catch a show at Blue Chairs; take the bus cross town for 6.5 pesos to the Marina and look at the yachts or to Wal-Mart to stock up on cheap groceries & sundries; buy fresh tamales for tomorrow's breakfast at 8 p.m. from a street vendor; browse the art and artisan shops. A 10-15 minute walk along the waterfront to downtown will bring you to the Main Plaza and Guadelupe Cathedral.

Why L Schaefer chose Puerto Vallarta
This is an extremely unique and beautiful recently redeveloped condominium complex, laid out within the original gardens of the former property, overlooking the Bay of Banderas and Puerto Vallarta but just steps from the Beach.
What makes this condo unique
You will be in a beautiful oasis of flowers and trees just steps from all the action of fun Puerto Vallarta. You are 3 minutes walk from the beach, the bars, the nightlife, great restaurants, shopping, and art galleries, without sacrificing privacy and peace and quiet.
Guestbook comments from the owner
We liked everything about Alegria! I have stayed in quite a few condos, and yours was one of the best as far as "having everything you need". It was a nice touch to have the travel guide books in the baskets (with reading material)....especially for people who may have not been to PV (or Mexico) before....your instruction book covered everything we really needed to know about operating equipment in the condo. The book was awesome! the grounds were absolutely GORGEOUS! The pool area was unbelievable........we could have spent most of our days right there (and sometimes did). One of the things we liked best was your beautiful outdoor areas.....we ate every meal outside, and grilled a couple of times. We also loved the spectacular views, and the way the windows/doors open up to the outside. I would highly recommend Alegria to anyone who is interested in renting a condo in PV. You could not ask for a better location, and next time I return to Mexico I would definitely inquire about staying there again. It was the perfect place for us.....my grandson spent hours and hours in the pool and said it felt like "home" to him.
