Puerto Vallarta is a shopping paradise. There are several shopping districts and malls which feature everything from local art, souvenirs, vendors, jewelry, tequila stores, leather goods and beach wear. You can find it all in Puerto Vallarta.
One of the most popular shopping destinations is along the beachfront walkway called the Malecon. Restaurants line one side of the walkway, and a vast selection of shops and stands for local artists can be found on the other side. There are also galleries featuring local Huichol art. A great way to discover this area is to join the Art Walk on Wednesday evenings at 6 pm October through May.
If you are seeking local arts and crafts, the Isla Cuale is for you. The island is situated in the River Cuale, and you can cross over on a footbridge, or suspension bridge. Be prepared to negotiate with the merchants.
For high end shopping, boutiques, clothing and international stores, visit Puerto Vallarta’s newest mall, La Isla Shopping Village. You will find Calvin Klein, H&M, and more! There are many restaurants and a movie theater showing Hollywood films.
