Malecon Puerto Vallarta
Just walk around the recently renewed Malecon available only for pedestrians. You can rent a bike, scooters, and baby cars. Besides the ocean, there's a lot to see; the new pier with water taxis service, cartoonist, food, and local drinks vendors, art, the popular sand sculptures, musicians, etc. And the popular "Romantic Zone" with low light ambiance at the end of the Malecon, next to a small bridge that connects the Malecon with an the mini Island "Cuale", within the city. You can walk through it and see tequila shops, local craft markets, and a regional museum.
EL EDEN ecopark
This is a beautiful eco park, and the famous film location of the "Depredator" movie. It has a plenty of green areas, and a nice river with a local seafood restaurant. There's several tours that you can purchase by the Malecon to Eden park daily, with eco-tourism activities like zip lines, rock climbing, etc.
Muelle Los Muertos
Two years ago the city renewed the Malecon, but the mayor proyect was "Los Muertos Pier", with a huge monument to a sailing boat. Its a nice place to walk, read, an excellent spot to take pictures, and a variety of water sports available: jet skis, parasailing, etc. You can also find mariachi music at a very low cost.
la bodeguita del medio
The second most important "Bodeguita" after the mythical "La Bodeguita Del Medio" in Havana. The vibe, true Cuban cuisine and live Cuban salsa will transport you right away to the Caribbean island. There's an large variety of real Cuban cigars, and the most authentic Mojitos you've ever tried in your life. Get ready to see the most amazing salsa dancers, and don't forget to put your name in the wall :)
If you're looking for more intense partying you have to show up at "La Vaquita" (the little cow), the club staff does their infamous contest in spring break season, and the DJ plays anything from trance, to Modest Mouse and the international top charts. The decor is cool, and they even have tall bunk beds that you can crash on with your crew and have some drinks deliver to there. Everyone wants to get in so the guys in the entrance get picky no matter who, so be nice and smile.
