We try to spend at least one afternoon and one evening walking on the Malecon every time we are in Puerto Vallarta. They put on displays on a random basis. We have seen the Dancing horses perform, the Mexican Navy orchestra, a Volkswagon car collectors exhibit and all kinds of shows. Stop and shop in the many stores or have a meal or a refreshment of any kind. We like to watch the Mexican families together specially on a Sunday. Beautiful clothes, babies and people.

The view from the Malecon is spectacular. This boardwalk located right along the ocean is a perfect location for just enjoying the view or for dropping into to a little cafe for a beer and nachos. Very clean and you don't feel as pressured to buy as you might at a local market.

Great for people-watching, tequila tasting and a great Cuban restaurant with amazing salsa dancing. There were lots of little jewelry and clothing shops that were open later at night. We liked to walk home from most restaurants along the Malecon and always felt very safe.

It has been re-done since our last visit and improved by removing cars in favor of pedestrians. The sidewalks leading to the Malecon have also been re-done which improve the walk from the hotel. New statues have been added as well and major shows can take place on the Malecon.

The changes to the Malecon since our last trip to PV are great. Pedestrian-friendly, easy access to the shops without dodging traffic, lots of interesting attractions along the way. Nice improvements.
