The gentrification of the ‘Gulch’ has progressed to the point now that high-quality reno’s and in-fill buildings have generated some beautiful properties of all shapes and sizes. Its narrow streets with cobblestones are reminiscent of Europe and Old Mexico and is an area that is much loved by its residents for being the “real” Puerto Vallarta.
