Visitors to the area will never be bored. Puerto Vallarta has a myriad of activities to keep vacationers entertained. One of the most popular pastimes for locals and tourists alike is to stroll down the El Malecon, a promenade which stretches 0.5 miles along the coastline. The promenade is packed with restaurant after bar after shop, and a quick stroll can easily become a very long one.
