Ocean is Amazing

Loved coming here to walk around and meet people. Don't like all the pushy sales people selling their ugly fake silver jewelry.

Located on the Malecon, it is one of many sculptures available to check out. The Malecon is just ok, unless you are really into shopping and dining at "not so local" places.

Walking down the boardwalk you will find different sculptures to take pictures. Nice walk during the day or night, and also were you can stop to eat at a nice quaint restaurant or shop for souvenirs.

WE ENJOYED STROLLING THIS AREA. Lots of statues make this an enjoyable walk. With the bay as a backdrop, it’s a scenic area, especially at sunset. There are places to stop for a drink or snack, adding to the enjoyment.

This area in PV is really unique. I respect a town/city that puts an effort into creating interesting spaces for it's citizens and this is it. The sculptures are beautiful or thought provoking and with the back drop of the Bay, it's a great place for a stroll.

The Malecon is lined with many beautiful sculptures with the Caballito being the most popular. Walk up and down the Malecon and see them all. See my photos for more.

Apart from the Lady of Guadeloupe church, the seahorse Statue on the Malecon is probably one of the most famous in Puerto Vallarta. As you stroll along the Malecon you will see many love sculptures.
