This was a nice walking tour to learn about the sculptures and the artists, which leads to history and culture. Our guide captured a couple of bystanders' attention that they joined in on the walk. Tours like this are a must if you're interested to learn about culture of a place. Thank you for the nice time!

This is a must-do activity for everyone!!! I had been walking along the Malecon for days and never realized how much history and artistry there was in the boardwalk. From the prominent sculptures to the tile work on the ground, Memo did a fantastic job of explaining everything in detail! I felt like I had been missing out on a vital part of Puerto Vallarta up until this point and this tour truly changed how I viewed the city. Thank you for teaching me about Puerto Vallarta, Memo!!!
