Even though we are in the Summer season here in Puerto Vallarta, there are still plenty of events and activities going on to keep our locals and tourists occupied and having fun.

The book market is installed at the entrance of the Rio Cuale on Insurgentes Street in Old Town Vallarta, from 10:00 am to 5:00 pm.

The primary objective of this market is to expand and promote options for the practice of reading among children, youth, adults and seniors.

Release of Jaltemba the Turtle in Guayabitos
