Access to the street (and Walmart) is blocked by a new shopping area, reached by a severely uncomfortable trolley. The onboard port lecturer never mentioned this change.

The guide lost 12 people from our group and we were not able to enjoy the tour fearing we would lose our guide and be left behind. We did not get off in all the stops b/c those who did half would be left behind

Too changed over the years from a beautiful little town. Might as well just stop at Miami except for the overpriced tourist rubbish and cafes with loud brash tourists (not generally from the ship). We took the local bus from the port, 15 minute ride to 'new' walkway - so what's the point - just Americans filling the place. No charm - even though its been made to look older and cute. Get off the bus half way - see real part of town - and enjoy a great meal at a genuine Mexican restaurant. Follow the locals there !! Read Less

Not much exciting to do here. We took a cab to the Malecon boardwalk and walked around. There were random dogs walking around and just people selling stuff everywhere so we went back to the boat after buying a few random things.

This port was fine, we just found the location of the dock to be less than ideal to get to the "romantic zone". You are basically in the business district near a big mall when you get off the ship (which was nice to walk through), but to get to the more old town area it's a taxi ride. The staff at the port encouraged us to take one of their taxis - DON'T it was a group shuttle that basically refused to drop us off where we actually wanted to go due to traffic. Instead walk to the mall, hop on their wifi, & book an uber for half the price. Read Less

My least favorite stop of the Mexican Rivera cruise. Puerto Vallarta is like a dirtier version of Los Angeles. You can walk to a Wallmart from the cruise terminal.

Blah couldn't be bothered. I know important for those and the locals. Beautiful building but the poor people.

Did not realize how far this port was from seeing anything. We should have booked an excursion or rented a vehicle.

We took a public bus to the shopping area and old town. Glad we paid only $1.00 for the 2 of us to do this. Nothing to see in town. Hot and couldn't wait to get back to the ship and the lousy food.

If riptides prevent swimming in the ocean, as it did for us, there's not much to do here other than go to WalMart or Sams Club. The malecon is nice, but only takes about 30 mins.

Didn't realize the main part of town was so far away. We started to walk and after like a half hour, we had to hail a taxi. Now, the guy seemed nice but it seemed that the taxi on the way there charged differently than coming back. Very dirty and was just ok. I had been here before many many years ago and it seems like it has gone down hill. Don't feel the need to come back. Oh and if you need to use the rest room, good luck. We had found one and they had the toilet paper OUTSIDE the restrooms on the wall. If you didn't grab some before you went in - you were out of luck unless someone was kind enough to give you any. I only knew this because I saw someone else grab some. Read Less
