Get away from the resorts and see this! Wander the streets, get a feel for the way the locals live. Very safe.

A must see on your trip to Puerto Vallarta to check out all the shops, restaurants and bars. Busy with tourists and locals alike.

Malecon was one of the highlights of our trip. There were so many authentic, jewelry and souvenir shops to choose from. There were many restaurants and even a McDonald's for a soft ice cream. There were at least 4 clubs that seemed really awesome... we couldn't wait to get back later.
The bronze sculptures are amazing especially in person. The priestess ladder statue was really amazing.
Whatever you do make sure you go to this boardwalk... you will not be disappointed.

I love to check out the action on the harbour from the Malecon. Looking both inland and out there is always lots to experience.

Such a fun afternoon popping in shops and restaurants at the boardwalk. Senor Frogs was one of our favorite stops.

Morning , noon or night come out and enjoy the sights along El Malecon. Then stop for a cold drink or a meal at one of the many local restaurants.

We were able to get there easily by taking the local bus near our resort for 10 pesos (take the bus that goes to Centro and alight after you see the big church). We had wonderful weather and enjoyed the walk along the Malecon. There are many restaurants and shops for a bite or drink and shopping. There was also a clean public toilet in one of the buildings for 7 pesos. Definitely worth a visit.
