A favorite hangout place for locals and tourists, the Malecon is a great place to come closer to the culture and lifestyle f Puerto Vallarta. This 1.6-kilometer long boardwalk is not any regular boardwalk. The Malecon is where Puerto Vallarta comes to life. The place gets busy during summers as local performers and entertainers perform in the open. People like to spend some time here, close to the beach under the open sky and enjoy juggling, mimes and live music performances, savor flavorsome Mexican street food like tacos, tortillas while relishing the sunset views. There are several boutique shops selling clothes, jewelry, and handmade goods as well as fine dining restaurants to give people a lovely time at Puerto Vallarta.
