What a great place to walk around. There is always something to see and do on the boardwalk. Great restaurants, bars and shopping available with the beach as a back drop.

Friendly people, beautiful scenery. At night, the clubs are insane. I had a lot of fun. Cab drivers may want to take advantage of cab fares, stand your ground, don't let them rip you off.

I was very close to the Malecon, walked to it daily, and it was very beautiful! I didn't spend my time there doing the norm. I sat off by myself just admiring the beauty around me and reflecting on how wonderful life is. A must see while visiting Puerto Vallarta

I find nothing better than taking in the sites. And here you won't be disappointed. Great ocean views. Many shops across the street. Great way to spend a few hours.
