Richard Burton first came to Puerto Vallarta, a sleepy fishing village to star in The Night of the Iguana. Burton and Taylor had met a few years before on the set of Cleopatra and were in the whirl of a scandalous romance -they were both married – but they couldn’t be apart from each other.
Richard Burton arranged for Elizabeth Taylor to stay at Casa Kimberly, directly across the street from his own home. He built a bridge connecting the two and gave Casa Kimberly to Taylor for her 32nd birthday in 1964.
You can book one of several rooms or dine at the restaurant/bar on the rooftop. It is located in the neighborhood of Gringo Gulch, at Calle Zaragoza 445.
