One of the best places to visit in Puerto Vallarta is its boardwalk, El Malecón. The Malecon is the center of the city and a true driving force for everything from entertainment to beauty and the beating heart of the local economy. The boardwalk stretches for 12-blocks along the coast and is closed off to traffic, making for exceptional strolls morning, noon and night. One of the things you can do for free on the Malecon is the sculpture tour. There are many outstanding sculptures along the coast here, and every Tuesday at 9:30 AM, you can tag along on a two-hour tour ending in refreshments.
