I am walking here every evening so to me this is like a pancake to the pancake lovers. Anyways, walk up and down on Malecon, or malecón, gives you all sorts of joy and entertaining that you barely can handle! Just go and enjoy!

Wonderful place for walking, people watching, ocean views and enjoying the ambience of P.V. Very family friendly with children being allowed to climb up the statues.

The Boardwalk or Malecon is a beautiful place to walk in the evenings. There's loads of stuff happening all around, so it can be a whole evening out on its own. There are amazing sculptures, like the Sea Horse pictures, every 100 feet or so. Great photo opportunities. The nightlife is pretty happening!

Great area to visit when in Puerto Vallarta. Great place to take photos and see the sunset. This area comes alive in the evening and there is lots to see, watch and do. A must lace to visit if you are in Puerto Vallarta

A wide selection of interesting and fun sculptures placed at distances along the malecon, not a destination in itself, but added to the experience for sure!

Lots of meaning in this artwork. The young man is a "Charro" (cowboy with hat on back) riding a horse with his right hand welcoming all to Puerto Vallarta. The neighboring areas are known for Tequila making and the color patina of the sea horse matches the blue agave plant. We stayed at the Vidanta Vacation Club and took a... More

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.
