When you hear about Puerto Vallarta, the first thing that may come to mind is an exotic, tropical vacation. While Puerto Vallarta definitely has sparkling waters and luxurious beaches, the most exciting thing about the city may very well be its art and culture. During our trip there this July, we were expecting to find another resort beach town, but we were blown away by the personality we found in Puerto Vallarta. Despite the reputation that Mexico can get, we found Puerto Vallarta to be very safe and friendly and full of people from all over the world. And it was full of artistic personalities! So, visit this beautiful city for the art, fashion, and culture- that’s the real reason for the trip. Galeria Colectika and see the colorful beaded art of the Huichol people. Pepe Cerroblanco that sell jewelry that isn’t just jewelry, rather rare pieces of art, as well. As you experience the hip and trendy eateries, be sure to pay attention to the details put into the atmosphere of them. For instance, the modern vibe of Florios Restaurant has light bulbs hanging down from wires to match its trendy décor. And, if you are lucky enough take a boat out to Casitas Mariaka Beach Club, the bathroom sink there is sitting over a tree with a seashell as the soap holder, and a gothic mirror sits in the tree in front of you. The clever design is perfect for a beach club, but also artistically genius. And, of course, you have to visit the infamous Malecón. The Malecón is the boardwalk in Puerto Vallarta that takes you down the coast and by the shimmering beaches. However, the Malecón in Puerto Vallarta is adorned with many unique statues for tourist to admire and even interact with. Yes, many of them allow you to interact with them.
