CITY TOUR PUERTO VALLARTA
If you have never been to Puerto Vallarta before, this little tour is a nice introduction to some of the sights. While Puerto Vallarta is not a historical hub so to speak, our city sightseeing tour will give you a quick overview of what Puerto Vallarta looks like, a chance for a little bit of shopping, some very nice tropical scenery, and a taste of the local flavor.
We'll start out on the north side of Puerto Vallarta and work our way south with a drive down the famous boardwalk, or malecon, and get a look at some of the many statues lining the water, such as the whale statue and the sea horse statue, popular photo opportunities. We'll visit the main points of interest such as El Palacio Municipal (City Hall), the main plaza and other city landmarks, such as the Iglesia de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe (the Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe), Gringo Gulch, and the flea market area. You'll have some time for shopping on this part of the tour as well.
Leaving Vallarta, we continue south along the Bay and up to the residential zone of Conchas Chinas, and then we stop for a photo op to enjoy the wonderful view overlooking Los Arcos and the town of Mismaloya, famous for the filming of "The Night of the Iguana" starring Richard Burton. Here you can also browse a selection of Mexican handicrafts.
Stop at a tequila factory, where you will learn about the process by which tequila is made, how to drink tequila like a Mexican, and will have a chance to taste different varieties you never knew existed like flavored tequilas, for example.
We continue high into the subtropical rain forest of the Sierra Madre, where we'll stop at a beautiful riverside restaurant where you can order lunch from the menu, or a drink from the bar, and take photographs next to the beautiful waterfalls.
