All the best inexpensive hotels are located south of the river, Rio Cuale which just happens to be near the inexpensive restaurants and the best beaches. The rates listed below are from March of 2001. Remember that these are the "high season" rates so they may be a bit less in the low season ( April 16 - Dec. 14). These prices are based on the exchange rate as of March of 2000. (One U.S. dollar = 9.40 pesos)

The hotels listed here are not 5 star, but they are clean, safe and totally adequate. I have never had anything stolen from my hotel room and only once in the last twelve years have I seen a cockroach, (and boy was it a big one!). Some of these places are right on or near the ocean while others are a 10 minute walk, a good way to burn off the extra calories from all those margaritas! Most of the hotels listed below are priced from about $15.00 U.S. - $25.00 U.S. for one person. They have daily maid service and friendly English speaking staff. They all have private bathrooms with hot water and all hotels supply purified drinking water.

Though I have never made reservations ahead of time for any of these hotels, you can call them if you would like. To call Mexico from the U.S., you first need to dial 011-52 then the area code (322) and the number.

APARTMENTS, CONDOS AND VILLAS FOR RENT

Many apartments are available for rent by the week or month. Contact "Mexirent Vallarta" . They have studios, 1, 2, and 3 bedroom condos, houses, and villas available in many price ranges. I would suggest that you request something south of the river, "Rio Cuale" (pronounced, ree-o qual-ey), either in town or close to town. Everything north is flat, treeless and full of American style hotels, while the south is full of hills, swaying palms and the best beaches.
