I have been to PV several times and the malecon changes every time - the sand and human sculptures, stores, people, restaurants, artists, performers and even the malecon itself. I had not been there in a couple years and when I returned this January, there was no longer driving along the malecon. The street has been removed and they have built it up to make it foot traffic only. It is beautiful. They did a wonderful job.

The Malecon boardwalk, is an endlessly interesting walkway that pulls together the ocean, and old town Puerto Vallarta. As you stroll along, you can enjoy the sand art, the fasinating rock art, the interesting shops, and the beautiful sculptures that represent Puerto Vallarta, and it's history. No matter how often you visit this section of old town, there's always something different to discover and enjoy.

It is not clear where the boardwalk starts and ends relative to the Zona Romantica as they seem to flow together to make an extra long walk to stroll along especially nice right before sunset.

This beautiful walkway right along the edge of the ocean with shops and restaurants on the opposite side was one of my favorite things to do every day. We never missed an evening strolling along the Malecon, stopping to enjoy the view, the amazing sand and metal sculptures and the main plaza. Always full of activity and music.

Walk along the boardwalk that front's the city of Puerto Vallarta, and you will see performers, sand castles, artists and food vendors along the waterfront. Across the street are all the shops, restaurants and bars - something to appeal to any taste :) There are seasonal festivities, and we always stop for ice cream at one of the coffee shops on the Malecon :)
