This Area of Puerto Vallarta is great to live because of the rich views including ….white walls interrupted only by flowerpots blooming with bougainvillea, geranium, hibiscus, copa de oro and splendid ferns. The city streets have always been cobblestone, but now, these rounded river rocks are set in concrete, creating a much smoother and durable surface, while still maintaining part of the original city charm and the temperature regulation these stones provide.
Since last century, Puerto Vallarta’s malecon has been on of the city’s main and most enjoyable attractions. First off it’s free, secondly, it has recently been completely remodelled and offers a wide, beautiful promenade between the sea and the stores and restaurants. Cars, taxis and other vehicles no longer stuff the area, so it’s safe, clean and fun. Since the 80’s the malecon has become a long promenade with a sculpture almost every block. You’ll find soft welcoming ones, strange surreal examples too, walk up to them, touch them, sit on some of them, they may even be designed for that.
