Vallarta Port

We did the tour walking through the impressive pier, where there are many beach sand sculptures, an art show that treasures this small city. Along this long walk there are many restaurants and places of drinks cared for to the smallest detail, all to attract the attention of the tourist, mainly Canadian or North American.


Leaving the boardwalk behind you reach one of the panoramic points of the city, the Matamoros Lighthouse, located on one of the many slopes in the city.

Following the tour of Puerto Vallarta we pass from the lighthouse, taking a long walk you reach the Cuale Island, where the city has its origin in part and that today is the Cuale market, ideal point to buy crafts or any souvenir of the city.


Finally, and perhaps one of the most interesting points of the city we visited the Romantic Zone, the most beautiful point of the city and surely the best area to stay both for its environment and for the beauty of each street. If you want to leave the city behind, you can go toSan Sebastian del Oeste, a charming village price between the mountains.
