Amazing Hilltop Views

5 de Deciembre Puerto Vallarta

Located in the north part of town starting at the ocean and reaching up into the mountains, the area is a combination of new luxury homes and condos and older traditional homes. Due to the topography, many of these homes have spectacular ocean, city and mountain views.
The area is well situated with easy access to beaches, the Malecón, shopping and great restaurants – not to mention one of the best seafood, fresh fruit and vegetable markets in town. Colonia 5 de diciembre combines the feel of old world Mexico with all the conveniences needed to live a very comfortable life. And because of the blend of people here – a large majority living here full time – it truly feels like a neighborhood more than just a tourist destination.
Options for housing in 5 de diciembre are many and the price per square foot tends to be lower than that in the south side of downtown Puerto Vallarta. There is something for everyone in this neighborhood with prices to fit any budget. Whether you are looking for a hilltop lux condo or a tucked away little hillside cabaña, 5 de Deciembre has many option to suite both foreigners and locals alike.
There are plenty of young Americans and Canadians here; the area appeals to an art-loving, almost bohemian crowd. And perhaps that’s for the best. Like many of the older areas of Puerto Vallarta, El Cerro is hit-or-miss. One block will be filled with well-maintained, attractive homes, the next with tin-roofed shacks, mangy dogs, and barefoot children. Though some homes are fairly expensive, good deals are to be found. Several new condominium buildings are in process at the top of the hill featuring spectacular views and prices starting in the low $200,000 USD range but quickly go up as there are many beautiful ocean view homes in 5 de Deciembre.
