  • Address: Malecon
  • Admission: Free

Puerto Vallarta locals and visitors alike strut their stuff on El Malecon, the city ’s iconic boardwalk overlooking the Bay of Banderas.

It’s the place for sunsets strolls, rollerblading, ice creams and admiring the many public street sculptures that adorn the boardwalk.

You’ll see sculptures of dolphins, loving couples, a seahorse, angel and various abstract works.

The malecon also takes in the color and vibrancy of the local fish market and the graceful arches known as Los Arcos that make up the city’s public amphitheater for outdoor entertainment.

Practical Info

The malecon promenade stretches for a mile along the beachfront of downtown Puerto Vallarta, from the Hotel Rosita to Los Arcos.

Weekend evenings are particularly popular times for romantic strolls along the oceanfront malecon.
