The paseo pescador is frequently called fishermans walk. It is a fabulous walkway from playa principal to playa medera. It borders the zihua bay and the mountain that surrounds it. It is wide and spacious with beautiful work man-ship of stone and posts with heavy ropes as the guard rails. It has entrances to the water at appropriates low spots has benches along the way for the tired or the old or the lovers. It also has gazebo type look outs at given points. It is simply beautiful with land side growing with plumeria and various cactus plants. The water side of the bay has beautiful uniform one meter or so high waves.Just great. Come night on come their solar powered bright lights. And one of the best things about it,is “it is free”. Enjoy.

Have a seat at the outdoor cafe/coffee shop, El Cafecito. Perfect place for both people watching and checking out the fishing boats as they come or go. Open til 10 p.m., I think Their photos on TripAdvisor don't do the place justice. It's all about the outside seating. One of the best locations for sipping coffee that you'll ever find.

Maybe I'm somewhat confused between what is the Malecon and what is the Paseo de Pescador? They both kind of run together. Part of the Malecon was under construction while we were there, which was very disappointing. From the bball courts to the fishermen selling their daily catch and over to the pier is awesome! A must see early in the morning when they first come in from fishing.

This is where the locals and the tourists mix. Great restaurants on the ocean, views of the bay, fishermen selling their catch, nice shops, close to El Centro. It has it all. Not to be missed.

It's important to be here early shortly after dawn, as the fishing boats come in to display and sell their catch. It's quite beautiful as well as informative, if you are interested in what kind of fish you are eating. Pick a table at La Marina Cafe and order a fabulous breakfast and a great cup of coffee while the scene unfolds, or wander around with your camera to get a perfect slice of Mexican life. The area is also really active at night with community life with families coming to walk or young people participating in a ball game. If you are into shopping, there are several tiendas with upscale beachwear.

take a wal through the paseo del pescador early in the morning and for a few pesos you will find the freshest, delicious and colorful fishes, shrimp and crabs you will find,,,they have everything there and if not int he mood for fish, you can take wonderful pictures, meet the locals and be a part of the busy morning. Locals get up early and arrive around 8 am with their loads of fishes and seafood and you can hear the bartering and deals being made as the locals try to sell their morning catch,,it is a very popular place and where fishermen's dreams are made...try it! you will not be disappointed.

Picture the main tourist area on a beach...been to Puerto Vallarta? Well this is a different picture. No crowds, no high rises. Eat breakfast with the fishermen pulling in their daily catch at your feet. Run into or meet everyone in town. Relax on the porch at Casa Marina pretty much all day. Have breakfast at Marina Cafe, afternoon coffee and homemade pastry at El Caffecito, dinner at Cafe Marina and an ice cream drink that evening after music on the beach. If you are not charmed and mellowed out completely, you need serious therapy. For me this is it. We love Vallarta, but this is the place to chill and get restored. Probably similar to Vallarta 40 years ago.
So go already!

Zijatanejo is one of Mexico's best kept secrets! Locals are very nice and accommodating, restaurants we went to were fantastic food (and reasonably priced) and our hotel was a 15 out of 10! We also checked out a couple of other mid to high end hotels and they are well worth the price..if they were in Hawaii they would cost twice as much!
Plenty to do and see, but not for those who are looking for heavy metal or disco nightlife. More of a gracious, down to earth tropical Mexico experience. We also felt safe driving here, although our hotel was so great we never wanted to leave except to walk half a block to the beach:) The older downtown is charming with some good craft shopping, and small active fish market every day.

We enjoyed multiple cups of cappuccino and crepes while people watching at the fish market. Multiple places to eat for any time of the day.
