Started our day by crossing the street and going to Walmart. Awesome souvenir section! I bought magnets, tshirts, shot glasses, picture frames, and a photo album. Ended up spending over $100, but really got a great value. Since the ship was so close and we had 12 hours in port we smartly decided go put everything back on the ship rather than lug it around all day. After leaving the ship the 2nd time we took a left outside the port to the bus stop with a bench. After a few minutes we got a bus that said Centro. Its only 10 pesos a person or .50. The last person pays and must have exact change in pesos. I told the bus driver the street I wanted to get off on because I had a plan to get some street tacos. Highly recommend the bus over the taxi it was great both ways. I had trouble finding the exact taco stand I wanted, but there were many and the one we stopped at was great. Tacos Mi Esperanza on Calle Constitución. You can find it on google maps and its accurate to where it is. They were great and did speak enough english for us to get by. They let my 12 year old neice help them press the masa into corn tortillas and they gave all of the 4 children some dough to play with. Everyone had Chicken or Beef quesadillas and they were very good. Really felt like we were experiencing mexico there. After that we walked 5-10 minutes tp the Malecon (Boardwalk). That was really nice. We had perfect overcast weather around 85 degrees. We walked over to Cuates y Cuetes to make a reservation on the beach for dinner. Walked around a couple hours and then came back. Had a great dinner on the sand. Beach vendors did get a little annoying coming by every 2 minutes, but still had a great dinner. I had mixed fajitas with shrimp, beef, and chicken. Our waitress Dana was terrific and spoke very good english. She helped get us a couple blocks north of the Malecon back to the bus stop. Jumped onto the bus that said Walmart for another .50 and it got us back in about 25 mins. Read Less

We absolutely love Puerto Vallarta, but could not leave the boat due to intestinal issues from the food from the prior 2 at sea days. Total let down, we made the best of it by sunning on the deck with no other passengers but we missed our ... Read More

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

This was about 30 min bus ride out of town. We sampled 7 Tequilas. They did short us on tasting. Followed by a good taco lunch. we really enjoyed this. BTW our guide Jose, made this fun... he really knows his tequila.

We took a cab to the Malecon along the waterfront. It is a beautiful place, with giant sculptures, sandcastles, shops, restaurants, etc. and it is quite long. Very clean and the people are super friendly. We stopped at a restaurant (second floor open air seating) and had chips, guacamole made at the table, fish tacos and margaritas. It was lovely with a cooling breeze and the overlook onto the malecon and all the people enjoying the day. Read Less

We talked to one of many tour guides greeting people coming off the ship. They offer city tours for $30 per person. We rode in a nice, air conditioned van and had a great time with our driver.

Puerto Vallarta was beautiful. Take a taxi past the tourist trap and your experience will be 100% better. It's a little exhausting telling every merchant no thank you.

We just walked around to the various shops. I like PVR as it seems to be one of the few ports that hasn't turned 100% American tourist.

This was our favorite port. We took the city bus to El Centro (10 pesos, about 50 cents) and walked the Malecon, the city boardwalk. Lots of shopping, sightseeing and $1.00 margaritas an delicious tapas in El Patron Restaurant. The river walk and old town add to the adventure. We taxied back to the Cruise Port (about $6). For those travelers who need some personal shopping there is even a Walmart across the street from the Cruise Port. Read Less
