Sightseers can check out El Malecon boardwalk, Los Arcos, the Marietas Islands, and the quaint cobblestone district of downtown Puerto Vallarta. For a taste of culture, there are frequent events and festivals nearby featuring local food, art, and handmade goods. And then our favorite experiences were the ATV Tour through Puerto Vallarta and up into the jungle as well as the Rhythm of The Night Show.
