What is it? The promenade in Puerto Vallarta, which stretches along Banderas Bay, features street art, street performers, and top-notch people watching.
Why go? Soak in the sunset along the Malecón to get a real feel for the culture of Puerto Vallarta. Shops, bars, and local art abounds (keep an eye out for sand sculptures, too) while two of the city's most iconic landmarks, the Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe and Los Arcos (a row of standing arches in Plaza Morelos), are sights to behold.
