Puerto Vallarta Cruise and Candlelight Dinner Show

441 reviews
Get out on the water of Banderas Bay to watch the sunset on this evening cruise from Puerto Vallarta. Rather than wandering the city streets to pick a restaurant or bar, have your entire evening planned. Enjoy the spectacular views (and open bar) on the way to Las Caletas, then savor a 3-course dinner and watch a memorable cultural show featuring dance and music.

Gary Thompson does an excellent tour of the firsr half of the Malecon sculptures 930am Tuesdays. Today we were also joined by other volunteers from Vallarta 101 and Peyote People who helped Gary. This tour covers 7 sculptures from the North End (Millennium) to Rotunda of the Sea. Wednesday evening's 6pm he covers the second half of the Malecon. On the tour today we also had a Fernando Banos (Mathis Lidice), designer of the Millennium tell us more about his inspiration. Most of the sculptures are are privately funded and have taken 1- 3 years from conception to installation. After a hurrice, the entirw Malecon was recreated, including repairs and movement of many sculptures. Kevin (peyotepeople) gave additional information about the Huichol Symbols made from pebbles on the Malecon. They cone from the Wixarika tribe (also known as Huichol). Handouts were provided and the tour ended at Gallerie Pacifico with beer, wine, diet coke, and water. Tour is free, with requested donation to the library representative who gives a brief presentation at rhe Gallerie. Looking forward to the second half on another day!

A small but lovely art gallery with many unique items, some of them small version os sculptures along the Malecon. Gary Thompson the owner is a wealth of information. He offers the morning and sunset tours free with just a donation to the library in appreciation for his time. I actually did the free sunset Malecon tour by Gary Thompson with Memo this trip and found it quite interesting. It included half of the sculptures to the south of Galeria Pacific ending at Galeria Demetro ( Page in the Sun). It was very informative, presented well and also gave the opportunity for question and answer. He also offers a morning tour for the other half of sculptures. Whether you do a tour or not, you must walk the Malecon in PV to complete your trip. It is the essence of PV. Visit the Galeria Pacifico as well.

What a pleasant surprise! Gary was a gracious host as we walked the Malecon and learned a tremendous amount about the public art here in Puerto Vallarta on the Thursday evening tour. It was well worth the time and a surprise to be able to participate in supporting the local nonprofit library as well. Can’t recommend this free tour enough! Make time for this gallery and tour! We will bring friends when they visit.

We don't buy a lot of art, but the gallery was beautiful.. The owner, Gary Thompson, graciously gives two fascinating tours of the malecon sculptures each week in season, and you'll love the stories and his humor. They are free, but you should donate generously to the local library when you have a chance at the end to show your appreciation. His tours were among the highlights of our trip. As a special bonus, he has two of the sculptors (one each tour) discuss their work. If you're older, be aware that he walks at a pretty good clip. I loved his brief political interludes, but not everybody will. But who wouldn't love these tours!

Not going to blow your mind, but there are 4 different galleries within a couple blocks. And since they are all small and close knit and near the beach, this is just another gallery worth the visit.
