One of the many statues along the Malecon. It is definitely worth the walk along the Malecon and visit the many shops and restaurants.

Nothing says Puerto Vallarta as instantly as the boy on the seahorse statue. Just 4 days ago I saw pics online of 20 foot waves hitting behind this statue but today all was back to normal and beautiful.
