Malecon Sculpture Tour by Gary Thompson

Now for the 15th year in benefit of Los Mangos Library

  • Donate what you want
  • Millennium sculpture by Hotel Rosita, at the north end of the Malecon.


Created and guided by Gary Thompson, owner of the famous Galeria Pacifico, this tour has been helping visitors and residents appreciate the beauty of Puerto Vallarta portrayed in the monumental bronze sculptures mounted along the famous boardwalk or Malecon. Listen to the history and the unique stories behind some of these wonderful pieces of art as you stroll down Vallarta's beautiful promenade with the stunning beauty of Banderas Bay as background. Gary has owned and run art galleries in Vallarta for over forty three years and knows many of the artists represented on the Malecon personally. Kevin Simpson, owner of Galeria Colectika, sometimes visits to share his knowledge on the indigenous art found on the streets. At the end of the tour, donations are gratefully accepted to benefit Los Mangos Library and Cultural Center 100%, a non-profit institution that receives no state or federal government funding and only minimal municipal funds. Donations from attendees of this tour and other fund raising efforts have enabled Los Mangos to continue serving our community. Tour is about 2 hours long and it covers only about half of the sculptures located on the Malecon.
