Use the church tower of Puerto Vallarta’s Our Lady of Guadelupe as a landmark on a stroll of downtown Puerto Vallarta. Cobbled streets lined with flowers lead to the Malecon boardwalk, for strolls along the waterfront to the signature Seahorse Statue. Quaint souvenir shops sell Huichol handicrafts, and bohemian galleries highlight the work of local artists. To relax on the beach, try Los Muertos near the river, or head to quieter stretches of sand like El Gato and Los Arcos. For the best grounding in Puerto Vallarta’s layout, get your bearings on a day tour of the highlights.
A family beach holiday at Puerto Vallarta is all about getting out in the sunshine and dipping your toes in the Pacific Ocean. Say hello to Flipper and friends with a family dolphin experience, or join a beginner’s diving class to see what’s swimming under the sea.
