We took a tour organized through our Cruise Critic group to Sayulita, a charming beach town about an hour away on the other side of the peninsula. On the way, we did the obligatory but nice tour of a local tequila maker. Had a great time, but there was some confusion about the time since the ship didn't switch to local time for PV, so we came the closest we ever have to missing the ship (we weren't the only ones - they called out a lot of names after we got back).

The Malecon is a mix of old, new, tourist, and native. Beautiful oceanfront views everywhere. Had beers and great food on the second floor of Bar Oceano. Prices are great especially during the lunch hours.

We did this on our own, really nice place easy to get about although you need transportation to get to the main promenade. People very friendly felt completely safe. Would hesitate to use local buses although are the cheapest.

A group of 5 of us took a cab 30 minutes north tho the small village of Rosario. Had lunch and drinks on the beach at a restaurant. Walked through and bought some stuff at the outdoor market. It was a great time.

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

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.
