The Mexican culture as reflected in the very popular vacation destination of Puerto Vallarta can be experienced best by taking a walking tour. Puerto Vallarta Walking Tours offers eight such walks. Their aim is to immerse you in the local culture for a couple of hours so you feel more comfortable being here as you explore on your own.
An experienced guide will take you to different neighborhoods where you may see examples of Spanish Colonial architecture, hear the history of how Vallarta came to be, meet and talk to local artisans and vendors, taste a fresh hot tortilla while strolling an open market, or even make chocolate based on an ancient Mayan recipe.
Have more time? Visit a pre-Hispanic rural pueblo, a cowboy town, or snorkel and hike as you spend a day away on the water.
Visit PuertoVallartaWalkingTours.com to see all tour details and photos. Most walks are flat. A couple are not suitable for people with mobility challenges. Two are wheelchair friendly. All are suitable for children 12 and older.
