Best Things to Do in Puerto Vallarta

The travel section at U.S. News & World Report has posted a excellent guide of sights, sounds, and experiences you don't want to miss while visiting Puerto Vallarta. Included in the guide are beaches, parks, shopping districts, historical sights, free activities, and much more. Here is just a bit of what they have to say:

Catch a bus or ask a taxi driver to take you to the beautiful Malecón, the boardwalk that runs parallel to Banderas Bay. Then take your time strolling past the unusual statues and intricatesand sculptures found there, stopping for pictures or looking inside one of the art galleries along the way. You'll probably end your walk at Los Arcos or the Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe -- two of the most iconic images of the city. If you have more than a day to spare, plan on spending one or two hours at the Botanical Gardens of Vallarta or in the northern seaside town of Bucerías.
