What to do in Puerto Vallarta


Malecón

The Malecón is a very popular seaside promenade. Along the way, you will come across several impressive bronze statues and sand sculptures. There are also several small shops and restaurants nearby if you feel like doing a little shopping or tasting the local flavors.

Voladores de Papantla

You MUST attend this Mexican religious ceremony during your trip to Puerto Vallarta. Five men dressed in their traditional costumes throw themselves head first into the void, roped at the ankle, while one of them, perched on a 15-meter-high pole, plays the flute. The ceremony takes place near the Malecón.

Marieta Islands

These islands, located not far from Puerto Vallarta, are a former military zone. Now uninhabited, they have become a national park that attracts many curious people. Indeed, the artificial beach was created by the explosion of a bomb. Snorkeling enthusiasts will also be delighted by Marieta Islands' very diverse marine life.
