One could say that Amapas is the twin sister of Conchas Chinas. Located just north of Conchas Chinas, this is one of the most up-and-coming neighborhoods in all of Puerto Vallarta. It has become a hotspot for real estate investors and has filled itself with shiny new properties in the last few years. Just as her sister neighborhood, Amapas features parts with direct access to the beach and some sections nestled on the Sierra Madre hills. Meaning that it has that mountain-beach duality that makes Puerto Vallarta so alluring. Amapas has the perfect location, as it finds itself within walking distance of where all the action happens in town. Still, it’s also secluded enough to enjoy some peaceful, relaxing times.
In Upper Amapas, you will find a couple of great gourmet restaurants with stunning views of the bay, while in Lower Amapas, there are some of the best beach clubs in town and access to the most popular beach in town Playa Los Muertos. You have mountains and beach, action and peace, brand new luxury condos, and old school traditional villas with colorful Mexican style. And it also enjoys the best sunset views in the whole of Banderas Bay. No wonder it has become one of the most sought-after luxury neighborhoods in Puerto Vallarta. A favorite of American and Canadian retirees has also developed a strong sense of the Expat community, mixed with the rich Mexican culture’s local traditions, which results in an extraordinary atmosphere.
