It consists mostly of suburbs and shopping centers, with popular neighborhoods such as Fluvial Vallarta, Versalles and Las Palmas. Real estate listings here consists of mostly moderately priced single family homes, although some new tower apartment buildings have been constructed recently, all providing easy access to all parts of Puerto Vallarta. Most of this would not be considered "tourism" real estate, but rather homes to full-time residents who work in the region.

There major shopping center Caracoles is here, as are a number of private medical clinics situated nearby.
