With the knowledge that visitors in Puerto Vallarta are already aware of the popular landmarks, history, and culture of Vallarta, the Director of Municipal Tourism is promoting three different free tours to extend the knowledge of Puerto Vallarta.
The three tours are Tuesdays and Thursdays at 9:00 am and 12:00 pm, and Saturdays at 9 am.
It’s widely known that Puerto Vallarta has attractive beaches and great hospitality worth advertising, and these three free tours are a great way to explore the streets while learning some history and culture of Puerto Vallarta.
Bilingual guides, Luis and Reijard, who offer excellent service and knowledge, take visitors on a walking tour to hidden treasures in Puerto Vallarta while telling stories and anecdotes about the town and history.
Tuesdays and Thursdays offer two tours, the first at 9 am begins at City Hall where you will start by appreciating the mural designed by Manuel Lepe in 1981, commemorating the founding of Puerto Vallarta. From there you will continue to the main square, the church of Our Lady of Guadalupe, the lighthouse with spectacular views of the bay, and the malecon sculptures, and through the old post office building.
The second tour, starting at noon, comprises of Palacio Municipal, Aquiles Serdan Park, Fountain Christmas; Naval Museum, Navy Pier; Cuale and Mercado Museum where tourists will appreciate various handicrafts and works; Plaza John Huston; footbridge ‘The Iguana’ which joins the river island in Gringo Gulch; Villa Leonarda, Building and Serrana Alley Miramar, among other places.
The third tour is every Saturday at 9 am and includes the malecon, naval museum, “The Laundrywomen” sculpture, Los Muertos Pier, plaza Lazaro Cardenas, the Farmers Market, and Olas Altos.
To enjoy these tours, visitors should visit the tourist information booth outside of City Hall. Note: tipping tour guides is customary.
