What to do in PV!
What to do in magical Puerto Vallarta!
El Malecon is our beachside boardwalk and the No.1 attraction in the centre of historic Puerto Vallarta, and less than 10 minute walk from Casa Bella Vista! It's a magical place to be, stretching about 11 blocks with free walking tours, artists, tequila tasting, souvenir shops & the famous Palo Volador by day and street musicians, vibrant bars, clubs & fireworks by night. The colors, the sounds, and aromas, all caste their spell and you can end up just walking around for hours snapping pics, enjoying many tasty flavours from breakfast to late dining or maybe a freshly squeezed juice, icy cold Corona or perhaps a slushy Margarita or two!

The heart of Puerto Vallarta, where it all started and the area with most history and things to see and enjoy. From the Malecon to the main plaza, to the Guadalupe church and all the statues along the edge of the sea, shops, sidestreets with restaurants and nightclubs, the small colorful alleys going up the hillsides... El corazón de la ciudad, la parte histórica rica en historia y experiencias para disfrutar, del Malecón a la Parroquia, las esculturas, el mar, tiendas, restaurantes y mucho más. This is Casa Bella Vista neighbourhood~ the place to be.
