Puerto Vallarta is known for its stunning sunsets as well as its delightful bronze sculptures along the downtown beach walk. Enjoy both as you take an evening stroll along the Malecón with Learn Vallarta's friendly guides who will present background on each sculpture including dedication dates, artists' inspirations and anecdotal stories.
Beginning with The Millennium sculpture at the north end of the Malecón near the Rosita Hotel, the walk proceeds south ending at the sculpture of Saint Pascual Bailon on the Plaza of Chefs in front of Vitea Restaurant.
Along the way you will also experience other interesting scenes: sand sculptures along the ocean, the young man who balances muscle-straining rocks to create his own version of beach sculpture, the flying Voladores from Veracruz, perhaps a mime or two, and a quick explanation of the popular and refreshing drink "tuba" which you may purchase from the local vendors for $10-15 pesos. The Los Arcos Amphitheater, which is adjacent to the Friendship Fountain and the Angel of Hope statue, can be enjoyed for its evening clown shows and other free performances.
No reservations are necessary; just meet at The Millennium sculpture at the north end of the Malecón near the Rosita Hotel. This walk, which is normally $18 USD/person, is being offered as a complimentary activity by Learn Vallarta. Learn Vallarta delivers personal and helpful assistance to anyone interested in learning more about this charming tropical environment and its friendly people as a place to visit or live.
