Puerto Vallarta Malecon The Malecon is an amazing place to spend the day shopping, checking out street performers, malecon art, tequila tasting and enjoying the beach scenes. For the best lunch and dinner experience head to Pipi's Restaurant on Pipi Road two blocks up from the malecon entrance. Bubba Gumps seaford restaurant is on the main drag with great food and entertainment by the servers. Cheeky Monkey upstairs on the malecon serves $1 dollar drinks with a fantastic view of the bay and Puerto Vallarta.
There are a number of parking lots to choose from some paying others free. At the entrance on the oceanside there is a small parking lot on the right hand side. Offer the owners a tip and they will have your car washed by the time you return.
