“What a great place to stroll”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

After eating at some of the great places on the Malecon, it is so nice to take an after dinner stroll. The best thing is that one feels really safe, there are lots of locals, families out with their children, very few beggars (we have more in downtown Chicago!), other tourists and that stroll is just a beautiful way to end the evening.

“Old town walk that exceeded my expectations”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

We really enjoyed this tour, actually we were there twice since there is so much to see. the place is clean, safe, lots of transportation options and packed with restaurants for all budgets, stores, art galleries, live performances and the weather is just fantastic at this time of the year. Highly recommended.

“Gorgeous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Went for a jog on the boardwalk in the evening. It was excellent! During the day, there are a lot of salespeople but evening is just fine.

I wish I had more time here too. It was wonderful to walk and the shops were lovely and the sculptures were amazing.

“Stroll the Malecon- boardwalk”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

A lovely stroll along beach front of Puerto Vallarta. Plenty of pubs and restaurants with souvenir shops but not any quality merchandise or art galleries - that was a pity. Great way to explore the city and watch the crowds.
