Our adventure filled day highlights all the best sites in and around Puerto Vallarta. We'll begin by exploring the beautiful downtown area. Enjoy the tropics with a stroll along the lovely Malecon boardwalk. As you walk, you may notice signs of Puerto Vallarta's traditional nature. Community is everywhere and celebrations are encouraged. Embrace the Mexican attitude to get a deeper feel for its rich culture. You'll visit the most iconic church in the city, Our Lady of Guadalupe, which also serves as a symbol to the city itself.

On to the "romantic zone," also known as the "Old Town." Here the small streets are filled with cafes, bars, restaurants, and shops. Perhaps a coffee is in order. Before continuing on, you'll see some of Puerto Vallarta's most famous sites, including Los Muertos Beach, covered in white sand and endless rays!

Get a glimpse of Puerto Vallarta's own "Beverly Hills" as you drive past the gated Concha Chinas neighborhood, filled with extravagant mansions and tropical bungalows. A short drive takes you to Los Arcos, a popular destination for water activities, and a great place to take in scenic views of the Bay.

Movie lovers will delight in our next stop, Mismaloya, the site where "Night of the Iguana" was filmed back in 1964. Ironically, the film was about a struggling tour guide and it is this very film that put Puerto Vallarta on the map as a popular tourist destination!

It's time for lunch and our guide knows all the best local restaurants. We've saved the most fun for the last--a tequila learning facility. Don't worry, after learning, you will get to try some tequila too!
