Fun, bars, restaurants, wonderful sights and sounds. Great people watching too. The parade is endless, Stay through the evening and night, look for the pirate ship and fireworks! Street vendors and entertainment. A trip to Puerto Vallarta is not complete without "cruising" the Malecon!

Enjoy the vibrancy of the Malecon at night. The pirate ship comes in nightly for a short but incredible explosion of fireworks and walk by authentic food vendors and local artists. Grab a wine traveler for the walk...

Nothing says Puerto Vallarta as instantly as the boy on the seahorse statue. Just 4 days ago I saw pics online of 20 foot waves hitting behind this statue but today all was back to normal and beautiful.
