Local Bites: Start off at one of the best traditional taco stands where you get to try a traditional Mexican breakfast (no, it’s not huevos rancheros). Sink your teeth into carnitas (marinated slow-cooked pork) served on a hand-made, fresh-off-the-grill corn tortilla at one of the most well-established eateries in PV. This treat is sure to melt in your mouth and make you eager for more.
El Camion – Local Bus System: After you finish your delicious breakfast, get ready to experience the most commonly used form of transportation for locals in Puerto Vallarta. Your guide will give you expert advice on how to use el camion so you can keep using it during your vacation (and save money on taxi fares). Take a 5-10 minute journey into the heart of charming colonial downtown (El Centro) Puerto Vallarta.
Malecon – Seaside, Art & Shopping: Hop off the bus and take a leisurely walking journey along the famous Malecón (boardwalk) by the seaside. Learn some of the history of this iconic Mexican town, especially known for its collection of contemporary art sculptures and its wide range of vendors, stores, restaurants, and wares. Depart the Malecón and visit the celebrated “Cathedral of Our Lady of Guadalupe.” Next, we pass through the City Flea Market.
Old Town – Beach, Markets, Culture & Paletas: Cross the River Cuale on one of Vallarta’s famous swinging bridges and enjoy a leisurely stroll into the area known as Old Town Vallarta. Discover quaint markets, a tortilla factory and an array of amazing street food vendors that are sure to make your mouth water. Your guide will treat you to a Mexican sweet favorite, “paletas” also known as Mexican ice cream. While snacking on your refreshing treat, we head toward the beautiful beaches of Los Arcos & Los Muertos where you can kick back and take in the sea breeze at the end of the tour.
