This is a delightful place to stroll, people watching and taking in everything. Our apartment rental is literally at the very end of the Melecon. We see it as our pathway to wherever we want to go.

Visited the Malecon with another couple, and were very impressed by the view, the buildings, but especially the statues situated along the Boardwalk. If you're in Puerto Vallarta, don't miss this experience.

Nice to stroll by the ocean with many options of stores and restaurants had local food stands in The evening to add to the flare.

We loved the walk in the early morning. Watching all the boats go out and the vendors setting up. So many sites to take in. Get out of the all inclusive hotels and see what PuertoVallarta has to offer.
