VIDEO: Mexican Music & Art on the New Malecon in Puerto Vallarta

One of the top beach vacation destinations in Mexico, Puerto Vallarta is also known for its lovely waterfront Malecón, a broad boulevard that runs through downtown Puerto Vallarta. 

Recently, the Malecón became even more visitor-friendly, since a large stretch of the street was made pedestrian only. In this EXCLUSIVE VIDEO, you’ll see many of the things that make the place special, including sand sculptures and modern works of art made by contemporary Mexican artists. You’ll also see live performances of Mexican music, including Mariachi, which originates right here, in the state of Jalisco.
