Vallarta Real Estate: Whats in Pitillal?

14 September, 2019

Check Out the New Woolworth in Pitillal!

A new Woolworth Store has opened in Pitillal and has everyone excited about bargain shopping at their favorite store that has a little bit of everything.  For serious shoppers, parking in the downtown area can be an issue. Unless you’re going to hop on a bus, which we also highly encourage, the Woolworth located in the El Centro neighborhood of Puerto Vallarta can be challenging to find a parking space close enough for large purchases.

Pitillal, which is no longer the sleepy little extension of Puerto Vallarta, now has a new Woolworth! Cinemas, Walmart and other new venues have brought changes to this colonia and everyone seems quite happy, with the exception possibly of commuters who don’t travel nearly as quickly on Calle Francisco Villa.

We remember when Pitillal was not much more than a series of unpaved roads, dozens of potholes and an fun escape from Puerto Vallarta. Now it’s a day trip, which can involve three meals, a movie and some ambitious shopping.  Without losing its sense of traditional and local culture, Pitillal, once the source of precious coconut oil production, it is now a veritable open-air shopping mall encompassed in a barrio. Buses that say Pitillal will obviously get you there or you can take a taxi.  If you’re driving yourself, take Francisco Villa, pass the library and keep going. Another route is to come from the main highway, turn inland at Walmart/Sam’s on Priscilliano Sánchez, and either way, you’ll arrive in the core of this lovely destination.

The new Woolworth is not the only reason to venture to Pitillal. We have found a variety of great shops with delightful surprises. To name a few…Ángel de Luz, where you can buy candle making materials and supplies; El Perlita, not just a buttons and bows type of merceria (sewing notions shop). At El Perlita, we have found not just craft items to peak the imagination but helpful clerks to give us ideas for new projects.   Perfumería Fraiché is a quick stop to learn how to make fragrances! Fondants is a bakery with extraordinary cakes of stunning original designs. If you’re looking for a cake for a special occasion, this is the place. El Vaquero is where you must go in search of quality cowboy boots, hats, clothing and accessories.

There are also the usual tiendas found in Puerto Vallarta (or any Mexican town, for that matter) plus fabulous restaurants and taco stands, open a variety of hours. We ‘ve discovered amazing comida corridas in Pitillal, inexpensive three and four course meals presented in small settings. Plan to spend a day; there is so much to see and do. And don’t forget about Woolworth!

Que es cómo es.
