The Malecón is one of the most emblematic places in Puerto Vallarta, with the Mexican Pacific as its backdrop and a vibrant cultural life converging upon it. This promenade stretches along 750 meters and offers a unique experience for every visitor and resident.

Below, the Vallarta Lifestyles editorial team presents a series of facts that make the Malecón a central hub in Puerto Vallarta:

History and Location

  • The Malecón was built in 1936 and renovated in 2011 for the Pan American Games. It extends from La Plaza de los Pescadores (Hotel Rosita) to the Aquiles Serdán Amphitheater, also known as Los Arcos del Malecón.
  • Located in the Historic Center of Puerto Vallarta, the Malecón provides access to a wide variety of restaurants, cafés, bars, art galleries, boutiques, and jewelry shops.

Attractions of the Malecón

  • Open-Air Artworks: During your stroll, you will encounter magnificent bronze sculptures and other artworks that enhance the landscape.
  • “Puerto Vallarta” Letters: Visiting Puerto Vallarta and not taking a souvenir photo with the iconic giant letters representing the city is like not having visited at all.
  • El Caballito de Mar (The Seahorse): Undoubtedly, this is the most iconic and emblematic sculpture in Puerto Vallarta.
  • Our Lady of Guadalupe Church: Just one block from Puerto Vallarta’s Malecón, you will find this beautiful church that began construction in 1903.

  • Puerto Vallarta’s Malecón is known for its lively nightlife. This place is home to bars, nightclubs, and discos where you can enjoy yourself until the early hours of the morning.
  • The restaurants located here offer a variety of culinary options, from fresh seafood to international cuisine.
