Wonderful sculptures along the walk running along the ocean. Pretty views, starts at The quaint Old Town where the streets are cobbled stoned. Fresh breeze from the ocean is invigorating. So many little cafes and restaurants along this walk. Great little gelato cafe. So relaxing...More

nice walk where you get to enjoy some sculptures made of metal or stone but... Also of sand! There is also a show from the traditional "Voladores de Papantla". For free but... Give them a few bucks to keep the tradition alive!

Lots of stuff goes on all day here. So much to see. Lots of food stands and things for sale. Plus right on the ocean. Amazing sights.

This is a lovely walk along the waterfront. So much to see from water sport enthusiasts to amazing mime artists. Lots of bars to stop for a cold one at reasonable prices. Definitely a must do when in P.V.

The place to be at night, you can walk it from side to side, nice stores, restaurants and bars with views of the bay. At night it is the center of nightlife!

This boardwalk is perfect for a stroll. Don't bother eating along it though; all the good food is in the romantic district

There is lots to do here in the evening. we watched people climb a pole and swing down which was pretty cool. Great place to walk around in the evening. It can get crowded, but fun place to people watch. The sunsets are perfect here....More

This boardwalk connects the few villas and condominiums to Old Town city center. A good place to people watch and relax.
