Most of your neighbors in Puerto Vallarta would be nice. However, just like anywhere in the world, there are some places in Puerto Vallarta where you wouldn’t like to be, but those kinds of places in Puerto Vallarta are very small or very far from the city. I’ve never heard of an expat complaining about being uncomfortable with their neighbors or their neighbors being mean to them.
For example, my colleague Michael, who is from Chicago, lives in the same neighborhood that I live in and has never had any problem with it. I’ve never heard any complaints about their neighbors from the people I know and the clients that we have. If you move to Puerto Vallarta, your neighbors will be the last thing that you would be worried about.
