Many of you have experienced the fabulous Malecon Sculpture Tour by Gary Thompson which is presented every Tuesday morning during the season.
Now you can enjoy the additional Sunset Malecon Sculpture Tour on Thursdays.
The weekly Tuesday morning tour starts at 9:30 at the rear of the Hotel Rosita by the Millenium sculpture at the north end of the Malecon.
The Sunset Malecon Sculpture Tour on Thursdays begins at 6:00 pm at Galeria Pacifico’s downtown Vallarta location at 174 Aldama.
Galeria Pacifico's owner/director, Gary Thompson, created and serves as the guide of these popular tours. He has owned and run art galleries in Vallarta for over thirty eight years and he knows many of the sculptors represented on the Malecon.
Since 2005, these tours are meant to help visitors and residents to appreciate the beauty of Puerto Vallarta´s Malecon ocean promenade and the monumental sculptures mounted along it.
Both tours are in support of the Biblioteca Los Mangos Public Library & Cultural Center. Donations are gratefully accepted at the end of the tours. This non-profit institution receives no state or federal government funding and only minimal municipal funds. However, it is the only library serving our area and has become an overall cultural and educational center. Donations from attendees of the tours and other fund raising efforts have enabled Los Mangos to continue serving our community.
