  • Very nice statue right on El Malecon in front of large (?) stone/cement letters gaily painted spelling out 'Vallarta'. Statue of a young boy (symbolizing the city I was told) riding on a seahorse.  more »
  • I call this the heart of Vallarta it's a great place to take a picture and view the ocean. There are shops and restaurants nearby as well as well.  more »
  • It was better before they put up this colorful sign, mimicking those found in cities on the East Coast of Mexico....... I wish it were just the statue still.....  more »

  • The Malecon is well worth the trip. The statues along the way add interest to the beautiful view, of which this is the most famous. In the evening, hang around to watch the Pirate Dinner cruise shoot fireworks at the city.
  • Awesome seahorse sculpture! Great place for pictures and to admire the scenery that Puerto Vallarta provides.
  • Was fun and safe waking around. Got to see the sunset here and was awesome.
  • The most famous landmark of Puerto Vallarta. It was my first searched for landmark as soon as I landed at the Malecon. Beautiful view of the bay from its location.
  • Very popular with tourists for pictures. Elegant view.

Where to stay in Puerto Vallarta

The appropriately named Hotel Zone, at the coastal fringe of the city center, serves as one of the most popular areas to stay, with equally good access to the beach and the amenities within the city. Private rentals are particularly popular, with the Hotel Zone and the equally vibrant hub of Emiliano Zapata to the south offering plenty of condominiums to complement the range of budget, mid-range, and luxury hotels. Many of the city's best gay-friendly accommodations are found at the southern fringe of the old town.
