Malecon Boardwalk
#1 of 28 Sights & Landmarks in Puerto Vallarta
We so enjoyed this popular stroll, the sights enhanced by evening lights, rocks rolling with the impressive surf, musicians and artists hoping for tips, the heart of viejo Vallarta besides lovely cathedral.
El Malecon is a fun stroll along the beach where you can enjoy ocean views, performers, souvenir shopping, local restaurants, street food, art, music and unique picture-moments at statues.

Mirador de La Cruz
#4 of 28 Sights & Landmarks in Puerto Vallarta
For a great hike and a gorgeous 360-degree view of Puerto Vallarta and environs, climb the hill overlooking Centro to the red-and-white transmission tower and large white cross.
The reward is huge in the pictures you will be able to take, the views of the beautiful Bay of Banderas and the wonderful city of Puerto Vallarta.

... "ambulantes" with their various food items, and there is a peaceful ambiance: just perfect for hiking up or down the mountainous pedestrian walks or to view architectural details and life inside of residences.
Tour guide, Beto took us to all the popular sites including Elizabeth Taylor's house and guest house connected by a bridge, which was very beautiful
