Puerto Vallarta's municipality during the month of May 2011 started the remodeling and improvement of the already famous Malecon in Puerto Vallarta ("malecón" is the name given to a stone-built embankment or esplanade that follows the edge of a waterfront). After much work and effort, this important city project is now finished.

Already some weeks and months ago the remodeling began to cause excitement and good reviews, also within the international tourism media. We can, for example, mention the site "Travel Age West", an online travel and tourism magazine that is one of the most important in the tourism market in the U.S. who recently published a full article on the Vallarta Malecon remodeling.
The Puerto Vallarta Malecon makeover has been a project where you can easily notice the high quality of the structure and the finishes. Authorities have informed of the care that has been taken in every step of the way and every detail of the construction work. First, because a solid, durable and stable malecon is a basic requirement; secondly, because it is a basic attraction for the city and tourists; and third, because it is part of the daily life of the local citizens and the Vallartan government is always seeking to add and improve the recreational areas and culture that are available to the general population.
Considering that technology is also a part of everyday life in the XXI century, the Vallarta Malecon will also include free Internet access throughout the walkway for up to two hours, from mobile phones or other devices that can use Wi-Fi.
All these improvements are cause for celebration, the official Malecon inauguration took place the day before yesterday on November 25, and will continue with other events,including plays, concerts and much more, check the calendar below for details:
