Spend a pleasant morning walking Puerto Vallarta’s Malecon while learning about the many bronze sculptures located along the waterfront.

Fascinating stories by tour guide Gary Thompson of Galeria Pacifico make for a fun and lively presentation.

Gary has over 30 years experience in the Vallarta art scene and knows many of the featured sculptors personally. Most of these sculptures have been privately funded and have taken from one to three years to complete from conception to installation.

Participants will learn about each artist, what moved them to create each gorgeous masterpiece, how they financed their work, and background details to include scandals, gossip, love affairs, and political intrigue. Questions are always welcome.
 
This tour takes about two hours ending at Galeria Pacifico where one of the sculptors, Jim Demetro, is often present to explain the complex process of creating these sculptures. Complimentary beverages provided. The Tour is free but donations are gratefully accepted for the benefit of Los Mangos Public Library.

No reservations needed. Simply show up at the Millennia Sculpture by the Rosita Hotel on the Malecon on Tuesday between mid-November to April at 9:30 am. Although the tour is free, it is highly recommended that participants bring money to tip the sand sculpture artists as well as the Papantla Flyers. This tour is not recommended for young children as they may get bored and become disruptive to the group. This is an easy walk for those who have the ability to walk long distances.

For more information, please contact Gary Thompson at (322) 222-1982, or stop by Galeria Pacifico at Aldama 174 in Centro, Puerto Vallarta. Email is galeriapacifico@gmail.com.
