The "Malecon" is a broad pedestrian walkway atop the seawall in the central part of Puerto Vallarta.





The main square of Puerto Vallarta is the center for tourist activities.



  The 'Boy on the Seahorse' and the 'Arches' are the two oldest signature icons   of the city.



There are many whimsical bronze pieces on the Malecon.










A Papantla Indian troupe performs their ancient pole swinging ritual several times throughout the day.  The 90 ft. pole is located right in the city square.






The oldest landmark in Puerto Vallarta is the glittering dome of the Cathedral.









The Rock Eater & the Ladder Men.



Below, The Snout Chairs






  On the ocean side of the Malecon there are always sandcastle artists at work .




  These zoo creatures are displayed on the roof of a building facing the Malecon.




  The Mermaid and a couple of giant sea anemones.



Continuing south past the central square we find the Naval Museum and the Balanced Rocks



  This is the pedestrian bridge over the River Quale.



From the bridge there is stairway access to the Quale River Island, a peaceful retreat from all the crowd activity of the rest of Puerto Vallarta. There are several shops along the tree lined walkway and Oscar's, a very nice restaurant.



Oscar's waiter, Raul, serves up a great margarita and nacho quesadillas along with some really nice guitar background.





Mismaloya Beach is located on Banderas Bay, several miles south of Puerto Vallarta. This is where "The Night of the Iguana" was filmed. It was all the publicity of the Elizabeth Taylor - Richard Burton affair that gave Puerto Vallarta a start towards being a tourist destination,



Chico's restaurant is located in the jungle a short distance inland from Mismaloya Beach. It's under a huge palapa by a beautiful waterfall.. good food, great entertainment and the world's most powerful Coco Loco.
