You can get an Airbnb (1 BHK) for $25/night in the romantic zone (this is where the action is), otherwise, you can stay in the residential neighbourhood and pay around $10/night (I stayed in the poor neighbourhood.
Therefore the cost for entire place in downtown comes out to be $750 but you will also get a monthly discount so around $600.
Cost outside the city centre is around $300/month.

I have just returned from Puerto Vallarta after 20 days looking for a suitable rental where the Expats live because I can not speak Spanish. Preferably a new apartment or Condo with open views and a large infinity pool in common area. I will bring my two miniature dogs with me to the rental place in PV. The condo one bedroom/one bath I like was $1,200.00/Mon for a 12-month long-term from April 2019. I would like a permanent lease. Electricity included.
If you know anybody leases an apt or condo for my specification, pls let me know.

your rent prices are way off. A nice two bedroom where an expat would want to live is at least $1000
