PUERTO VALLARTA MAP

WALKING TOUR

You can begin a good walking tour of “Viejo Vallarta” (old downtown Vallarta) by taking a taxi or bus into town and starting at Hotel Rosita, Puerto Vallarta’s first hotel. The Malecón boardwalk (which, interestingly, has no boards) begins here—follow it to enjoy the beautiful ocean views and shops lined up across the street. Along the boardwalk are some famous sculptures, including “La Nostalgia” (a sculpture of a man and woman gazing off toward the ocean) and “The Seahorse.” At the end of the Malecón you’ll find Los Arcos, an outdoor amphitheater with four arches. Turn left here and cross the street to the “Plaza Principal” (Main Square)—you’ll see City Hall on one side, banks and shops on the other, and a large gazebo where you can sit and listen to the Mariachi musicians who hang out at the square. From the square, walk one block east to Hidalgo, where you can see the gorgeous Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe—from here, turn left onto steep Zaragoza and climb up to Casa Kimberley at Zaragoza 446, the house Richard Burton bought for Elizabeth Taylor (check out the bridge!). This area is known as Gringo Gulch because it’s where many foreigners settled in the “old” days post-World War II. Keep walking along Zaragoza to Miramar, then walk one block to Libertad to find the “Mercado Municipal” (City Flea Market) with plenty of t-shirts, silver, and trinkets. When you’re done shopping, walk back along Miramar, turn left on Guerror (lots of shops here), then left again onto Hidalgo. The street becomes Guadalupe Sanchez—several landmarks are here, including the Café des Artistes restaurant and Casa de la Torre. Turn left at Allende, walk two blocks, and you’ll be back at the Malecón. Walk back along the Malecón or take a taxi back to the pier.
