Medical

Please never go to a medical professional (dentist, doctor, nurse practitioner, chiropractor, etc) who does not have a cedula, a professional license to practice medicine in Mexico. There are some, both Mexican and expats, who say they are a medical professional who have no credentials to practice in Mexico and maybe no where. The same applies to lawyers, accountants, notarios, architects, engineers, etc.

Exploring

There are many great activities for those spending time in PV. Catch a bus to take a taxi to the beautiful Malecon, the boardwalk that runs parallel to Banderas bay. Then take your time strolling past the unusual statues and intricate sand sculptures found there, stopping for pictures or adventuring inside one of the many art galleries along the way. You'll probably end your walk at Los Arco or the Church of Our lady of Guadalupe - two of the most iconic images of the city. If you have more time to spare, plan on visiting the amazing Botanical Gardens of Vallarta or the northern seaside town of Bucerias.


Art Galleries  


Puerto Vallarta is rich in unique folk art, much of which won't set you back as many pesos as you might think. You can discover its art scene on your own by stumbling across galleries and boutiques, or via Puerto Vallarta's ArtWalk

 
Botanical Gardens provides an opportunity for our community to share the wonder of the vast diversity of Mexico’s plant species with the world. They have assembled botanical collections in a safe environment with viewing trails and have already built the most-visited public collection of orchids in all of Mexico.

As soon as you touch down in Puerto Vallarta, in Mexico's Jalisco state on the Pacific Coast, you'll find yourself accosted by offers of "complimentary" tequila shots and greeters trying to sell you timeshares. But Puerto Vallarta was once a very different destination. 
Even its name was different. 
Known as Las Peñas in the 1800s, it was renamed after former state governor Ignacio Vallarta in the early 1900s. As a fishing town, Puerto Vallarta's main source of pesos, in addition to fishing, was agricultural exports such as bananas, coconuts and corn. These days, it relies on importing tourists, hypnotized by the green turquoise seawater.
Blame Hollywood. Stars such as Richard Burton, Elizabeth Taylor and Ava Gardner descended on Banderas Bay to film John Huston's "The Night of the Iguana." Soon enough, the paparazzi caught whiff of Taylor and Burton's blossoming love affair with each other -- and their new second home. Others followed suit, including investors. 
Flash-forward several decades later and cue the mariachi bands that tame tourists with exotic festive sounds, all-inclusive resorts with sandy beaches and watered-down drinks. But the Puerto Vallarta that Burton and Taylor in fell with is so much more, if only you look beyond the confines of your resort when you travel here.
