It´s a walk with a local friend along Vallarta's boardwalk and around some of the most popular spots of Vallarta's central neighborhoods. Perfect for first time visitors to Vallarta!

​A fantastic general overview of Vallarta so you can know where you are, learn your way around and find out what's happening around town, while walking beautiful places. Maybe you can try some Mexican coffee or eat a taco on the way. Or just sit by the river. There are lots of picture opportunities and new places and activities to discover. Why not mark your favorite spots on your gps so you can visit back later on your trip?

During the daytime or at sunset, experience Vallarta by the hand of a proud local. 

No hustling, no wasting or making time, no shopping traps. It's all about making you feel comfortable with our town so you can later keep exploring on your own.



  • Interesting facts on local culture and (a tiny bit of) history.

  • Honest recommendations of Vallarta´s (cultural) activities and restaurants.

  • Useful info on transportation, currency, shopping, entertainment, safety and more.

  • Beautiful landmark spots, such as Guadalupe Church, Gringo Gulch, Cuale Island and Market, Lazaro Cardenas Park and the famous Malecon. Mountain, river, beach. All in one.


How long
It´s about 3 hours and about 2.5 miles, give or take.

How much
The walk is free. However, as a gratuity, You Pay What You Want. You decide.

At the end of the walk, if you are happy, you contribute with the amount per person, in pesos or dollars, you feel your experience was worth. We will make sure you love it.
