Puerto Vallarta has a very vibrant art scene and the mediums used range anywhere from metal, oil, water colors, wax and even sand. Just take a walk along the malecon and you’ll see a number of beautiful sand sculptures either recently completed or just being created.
The artist will have a tip box in front to help support their work. If you have some extra coins and have stopped to admire the sculptures, drop a few pesos in the tip box, especially if you’ve stopped to take some pictures. Its a good way to support the community and get rid of those small pesos instead of carrying them back to your northern home.
