    by mazatlanfan Written Oct 21, 2005

    When I was in Puerto Vallarta it was Easter and wow!!!! The party at the Malecon was in full swing!!!! The streets wer full to capacity. There was live music and dancing everywhere. It was awesome. Many restaurants and bars were full to capacity. It was interesting to watch people and talk to people.

    Malecon: Nightime Adventures!

    Great place to hangout, and watch couples holding hands, or young lovers making out. Or watch the bars from across the street, as the bar crowds, party hard.

    Dress Code: Every Sunday, young singles, walk the malecon, trying to capture each others eyes. They dress up, and walk around trying to get guys to whistle at them.

  • Viejo Vallarta: My absolute favourite

    Viejo Vallarta party

    After your walk on Malecon, a few drinks at La Cantina, disappointment at El Hilo, decision is obvious - Viejo Vallarta. They have one of the best local bands playing every night, but Saturday night is a total madness. My last night was Saturday and I got totally wasted....was sick on my early morning flight.

    This must be the most popular place for locals since on that Saturday place was packed and we were the only tourists. Band plays the kind of music that will not let you sit for a long time (world rock hits, latin music - Mexican band Pito Perez was quite a discovery, Manu Chao).

    See more photos of this bar in my travelogues.

    Dress Code: Whatever...

    the malecon: Quality nighlife but be prepared for some MTV

    There are too many bars along the malecon to name - so I'll just highlight a few. We had great times at Hilo, Vieja Vallarta, and the Zoo. We went to some of the more popular places like Hard Rock, Frogs, and Carlos OBrian's but they were just a little too MTV-like for us with dozens of scantily clad 18 year girls running around...I know some of you guys might like that, but believe me, it was more like babysitting than anything!

    Dress Code: As far as I could tell, anything goes...although I'd leave the wifebeater at home.

    Party on the strip!!!

    Puerto Vallarta offers many things to do during the day as well as night. Things don't really get started at night until around 11:00 and lasts until early in the morning. One of the places that I went to a couple of times was a bar called Kaluha's (excellent music -- Rap, R/B, rock, soca, latin and international). There was also 2 for 1 specials on beer all night long. In addition to this place, I highly recommend Mogombo, Carlos O'Brians, The Zoo and Christine's.

    On Sunday evening we stumbled into a wonderful folk Bazaar with lots of food and trinket vendors. Great tamales and crepes. Nice art work and public dancing.
