What is it? The promenade in Puerto Vallarta, which stretches along Banderas Bay, features street art, street performers and colorful people watching.
Why go? Spend sunset on the Malecón to get a real feel for the culture of Puerto Vallarta. It’s full of shops, bars, as well as sand sculptures, and local art. Keep an eye out for Los Arcos (a row of standing arches in Plaza Morelos) and the Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe, two of the most iconic landmarks in the city.
