A Recent Review of this tour

Thalia was very well versed in her knowledge of Puerto Vallarta. She has a good understanding of the symbolism of the public art and how it relates to the politics and history of the area. We enjoyed experiencing different elements of PV; the view from the lighthouse, a candy shopppe in the market, and a family run restaurant in the old town for lunch. It was great to explore all the nooks and crannies of PV. We could ask all the questions we wanted to and always got an educated answer from Thalia.
