A Simple Plan: Options

There is More to Puerto Vallarta Than Meets the Eye Situated beside the Banderas Bay in the Pacific coast of Mexico, Puerto Vallarta was a plain fishing village that is until the 1960s. For the film, “The Night of the Iguana” starring Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, the setting was in here. The majestic place of Puerto Vallarta was revealed from the pictures taken by the paparazzi and the movie itself. A place has now become famous. Currently, there is a lot of beach resorts established in Puerto Vallarta which is the second most famous city in Mexico. The city remains simple amidst the many buildings in it. Other than the beautiful beaches, you can try going to the downtown area for more experiences. There are buses available for transportation at the stop adjacent to the beach resorts to the downtown, you just have to pay a small amount of money for a rather awkward ride. The cobbled road is maintained by the business owners and the city locals. You can easily get to the scenery found in the downtown. The Cathedral of Our Lady of Guadeloupe is an identifiable building in the downtown area. On top of the said structure is a fiber glass tiara which replaced the former one after it was destroyed in a 1995 earthquake. The majority of the special shops are located in the surround area of the cathedral. The sculpture of a boy riding a seahorse is a familiar site you will discover in the Malecon. The said sculpture was identified as a symbol of Puerto Vallarta. After hurricane Kenna ravaged the Malecon in 2002, it has undergone a lot of repairs for the damages. In the western part of the Malecon is the Rio Cuale. Located upstream the river are two markets which sells hats, food, blankets and other handicrafts. You can test your Spanish proficiency here by haggling with the shop owners for souvenirs. Aside from that, you can visit the Rio Cuale Island Archaeological museum. The exhibits in the museum are on the artifacts previously owned by the earliest people living in the area.
