Tour description

A relaxed walk along the famous Malecon (boardwalk) and a great chance to learn about Puerto Vallarta through the beautiful bronze sculptures mounted along the way. A fantastic cultural experience with a local friend.

HiFi wireless headphones are provided. No outside noise or distractions. You can move freely around the sculptures and still listen to clear commentary and music played by your host. It's an immersive 90 minute experience. It is silent for everyone else, except you.

Listen to the history and the unique stories behind some of these wonderful pieces of art as you stroll down Vallarta's beautiful promenade from north to south at a comfortable pace with the stunning beauty of Banderas Bay as background. You will hear about the artists and their struggles and achievements, and their inspirations for their work. You will also learn about other artistic events available on the boardwalk and around the historic center. History, culture and lots of fun.

Plus, there 's very good mexican coffee available before we start.

Free to book. At the end of the walk, you pay what you want.

Join us and spend an unforgettable time with us.

Fantastic sculpture tour along the Malecon. Our guide Memo did a great job giving us the history and meaning of the sculptures. We had walked by them many times without knowing anything about them. This was out 2nd tour with Memo and we find him to be a very personable, knowledgeable guide.

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!
