  Malecon Sculptures

A little farther north along the Malecon is this bronze sculpture called "La Nostalgia". The sculptor Ramiz Barquet has the most public art on display in the city, his own love story inspiring these smooth bronze figures. After finding the woman he loved, then losing track of her for 27 years, in a twist of fate they were reunited and married. This is the spot where the lovers sat talking of their "almost life" together. When he proposed, he promised that if she said yes, he would create a tribute to their love for all the world to see.

Puerto Vallarta Malecon view There are many wrought-iron and stone benches along the Malecon, ideally situated either for admiring the artwork or for people-watching. In the evenings the local residents like to dress up and stroll along the boardwalk.
Here Ann takes advantage of one of the benches, while enjoying an ice cream. Behind her is The Seahorse by Rafael Zamarripa, which has stood on this spot for 30 years, and become recognized as the symbol of Puerto Vallarta. Puerto Vallarta Malecon Seahorse sculpture bench ice cream
Puerto Vallarta Malecon Milleniums Milenios sculpture At the northern end of the Malecon is the newest sculpture called Los Milenios ("The Milleniums"), Mathis Lidice's interpretation of the passage of time. Adjacent to that is the local fishermen's open market, where fresh fish can be bought each morning at a good price.
