Hi Emma, thank you for your interest in Mexico. Puerto Vallarta has very interesting spots to visit, starting with El Malecon or teh Beach boardwalk area where you will find some nice sculptures from Alejandro Colunga and othe local artists. The gastronomy is definitely a highlight in Puerto Vallarta, not only Mexican specialties but also good French & Italian restaurants, among others. If you want to experience a different side of Puerto Vallarta, you may consider some adventure tourism by doing canopy. It's fun and very secure, you won't have a problem. Golf is also good in the destination, best golf courses are located near Marina Vallarta, which is also a cozy place with some casual restaurants that you may visit. I'll be glad to ask the support of the Puerto Vallarta CVB for your trip if you would like to give me your dates. Best
Jose Balido suggested I ask you about Puerto Vallarta. I am a travel writer on assignment. Will be in PV for only one full day. I'd like to see a beautiful beach/park/area, and to have a bite in a "hidden gem" so I could bring my readers some [pretend] insider tips.
I'd appreciate your help very much.
