    In general, this is a fairly standard tourist boardwalk. But, the kicker is there are some great bronze statutes all along the walk. Also be sure to check out the snack vendors down near the Naval Museum.

    I have seen, 'It's Raining Men" 3 times this year and NOW to find out that they are performing during the Summer every Friday at 9:30pm is amazing!!! The guys are HOT and I must admit, the Cowboy, Alex Mora is a sight to behold!!! All of these performers give their all and you will be entertained. It is a MUST SEE while in Puerto Vallarta. DO NOT MISS THIS SHOW!!!!

    A beautiful place to visit, please be respectful and please make a donation. Mexican churches are the most beautiful I have seen.

    There are lots of bars and restaurants around the marina. We tried the El Torito, whihc is near the main entrance of the marina from the main highway. They had a rib promotion going during the week days. These ribs were excellent. I am not a big rib fan, but these were outstanding. We doubled the order and took them away for lunch and dinner the next day!

    A beautiful and lively beach... filled with wonderful people watching, restaurants, bars, etc. I loved the balance of locals and tourists. There are also a ton of people selling their wares and it can really become TOO much at times. You don't come to this beach to sit quietly. It's noisy, entertaining, and full of energy.

    For those of you that enjoy working out at the gym, via Stairmaster, take a day off and come here instead. Better work out with an amazing view, everyone should come here one/two times. Guaranteed you will love it.

    You have to walk down rugged steps to get down here. No vendors or food on the beach so bring with you. The water is nice but there are waves.

    The sunsets are spectacular!! It does get a little crowded and you will find some vendors on here but it is still romantic and worth it!

    We saw the last night of This Is GaGa and it was extraordinary! I would love to see another show here someday soon. Great talent.

    The island sits between the romantic zone and the old town is generally a large market area, the vendors are very happy to chat and not at all pushy, and there are some great photo opportunities , with interesting statues/murals. As it is a real island access is by bridge, there is a large modern bridge near the sea but half way up the island there are a couple of wooden suspension bridges and at the far end, furthest from the sea is a long staircase, and if you proceed up it to the top you will arrive at the former home of Richard Burton and Liz Taylor which is now a hotel.
    I am told that their prices in the market are inflated on Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays ( the days that cruise ships docks ) but I could not substantiate this.

    I would recommend walking the downtown area both during the day and at night. Lovely place. Lots of little restaurants, bars and shops. Friendly people.
