Area Travel Guide

Ten minutes south of Plaza Pelicanos is the center of town. Viejo Vallarta, or Old Town, is reminiscent of a marvelous fishing village – cobblestone streets stretch throughout the city, and whitewashed houses with tiled rooftops speak to motifs of Old Mexico. Many homes here have been converted to shops, galleries and restaurants. Isla Rio Cuale, a narrow island of Vallarta real estate accessible by bridge, features a cultural center, a museum, and more restaurants and shops.

Las Glorias Beach
In front of the Plaza Pelicanos
One of the cleanest and least-crowded beaches in the town of Puerto Vallarta. Also enjoy hiking or running the 3-mile stretch of beach, known as the malecon, which includes Playas Camarones, Las Glorias, Los Tules and de Oro. The malecon also enjoys the best sunsets in town.

Los Arcos Amphitheater
Near Presidencia Municipal (City Hall)
Free music and dance concerts happen on most weekends and some weekday nights, sponsored by the city. After the concert, enjoy the mimes and street artists, or experience local flavor at a street side food or juice vendor. For a calendar of concert events, see the local tourist newspaper, Vallarta Today.
