The crowned church. Crystal blue waters. Towering statues. Aerobatic performances. Authentic Mexican food. Exciting nightlife. These are just a few of the countless treasures that make the Malecon of Puerto Vallarta one of the necessary places to visit during your vacation in Puerto Vallarta. It’s the place to explore, snap some pictures, try the food, and fall in love with downtown Puerto Vallarta.
As the city grew in the 1900s, the Malecon became the heart of downtown Puerto Vallarta, right in front of the central church, which is surrounded by small shops and family-run businesses. While it started as the a short boardwalk on the side of the road along the ocean, it’s become a major pathway and the best place to walk in Puerto Vallarta to see the traditional architecture and mingle with locals who enjoy the festive air of the Malecon. Today, it’s always cited by guidebooks and locals as one of the places to visit during your vacation in Puerto Vallarta.
