Puerto Vallarta solía llamarse Puerto las Peñas, era por supuesto, un pueblo muy pequeño con unas cuantas personas viviendo ahí.
Puerto Vallarta used to be called Puerto las Peñas, it was of course a very small town with a few people living there. The walking area next to the Beach is what we now know as the boardwalk. It was the place where the local people had large warehouses to store corn, seeds, and coconut oil. The products were marketed and shipped on large ships for export. The regional market of that time was held between Puerto Vallarta, San Sebastián, Talpa and Mascota.
In 1948 the Hotel Rosita was built in the center of the city, becoming the first hotel in Puerto Vallarta. In 1962 when the movie “The Night of the Iguana” was directed by John Huston, Hotel Rosita received on several occasions the visit of Elizabeth Taylor, Richard Burton, Ava Gardner and the entire staff of the film who enjoyed pleasant meals from our restaurant. .
The Hotel Rosita is located where the boardwalk begins, a few steps from a wide variety of shops, bars, restaurants and local entertainment, but especially next to the beach to relax. A ten minute walk and you will be in the main church, the town hall, the main square or the market.
Today the Hotel Rosita is the most traditional hotel in the city and is considered a gem for its typical architecture.
The Hotel Rosita in Puerto Vallarta has a Restaurant “Agave” service, we serve traditional Mexican dishes and international food, including cuts and the best selection of seafood and cocktails or the most balanced and fresh salads for all those people accustomed to taking care of themselves.
