Great place for evening walks
Jul 2021
Great place to take friends and/or family. The outdoor amphitheater had free live entertainment, the sunsets were awesome. There many bars and restaurants to choose from. It is a great way to shop or just walk and see so many different things. We always felt safe, it was a great family atmosphere.

Water side entertainment area with great view of Banderas Bay.
May 2021
This fairly large area is close to the water with a view of the Banderas Bay surrounded by restaurants and bars. There seems to be always something going on here, especially in the evenings, ranging from concerts, to folk lorica dancers. A very popular place for tourists to visit, due to the large Puerto Vallarta photo-op sign nearby.
There is a large meeting spot marked on the ground so if you get separated from your group just arrange to meet there at a set time.
Recommend having an icy cold adult beverage on the balcony of the Sayulita Arco’s Bar, overlooking Plaza de Las Armas, it’s a great place to people watch.

TIP: Suggest that cruise ship passengers get up early and grab a cab to start their day here. Before your fellow passengers arrive in their thousands and spoil your chances of people-free photos.

We visited the Plaza de las Armas on our Princess Cruise. It's very beautiful, and we took a lot of pretty pictures to show our friends back home. We'd love to see this again.

nice area to walk around

Spacious area to walk around with good views of the bay. Several restaurants and bars are right there, most with a view of the bay, which never gets old.

Certainly a highlight on the Malecon, but I need to get more information to understand the high rating, compared to many other beautiful sites here in Puerto Vallarta. On the plus side , this is a great spot for people watching.

Well, it's closed right now due to covid, but still beautiful. Great backdrop for your vacation picture at sunset.

We have spent several wonderful evenings at the Plaza which is on the Malecon. Week of Feb 14th lots of great entertainment. Singers, dancers, buskers and just tons of people wandering around enjoying the many restaurants, views and vendors.
