One long street full of people of all ages... Sometimes we felt a little unsecure.... Maybe it's just us, but we finished our walk early as a result...

The boat ride staff were all very kind and entertaining. The food and drinks were great and satisfying. Plenty of time to try all the activities at least once. Definitely recommend this trip!

If your looking for a neighborhood that is artistic and cosmopolitan, this is the place. Just off the malecon and south of the Cuale river, you will find lots of great restaurants and unique shops without having to search hard.

Oh my goodness, how many people come to Puerto Vallarta each year and stay at their all inclusive resorts for the full week? You must get out and explore this beautiful and historic city with its cobblestone streets, beautiful architecture, live music and fabulous restaurants.

Loved to cobble stone streets and views of the beach and choice of restaurants and bars in the area. Prices are great as they all compete for your patronage.
