Having visited Puerto Vallarta in the more recent years, you would never imagine the city was once a small rural fisherman town.

Luckily there is photographic proof, here we present a series of old historical photos, many are without dates, some are more or less figured out by the quality of the photos and the people that appear in them, some appear with dates.

Time passes, we try to forget the fact, try to think we are eternal, these photos remind us just how fast time passes and just how much changes everything in its path. Wake up wake up you sleepy heads… Read more about the city’s history.
