With teamwork with the state and federal governments, hundreds of streets and avenues, parks, sports and educational spaces were transformed.
As part of the prevention measures against COVID-19 the municipal government of Puerto Vallarta calls upon the citizens to celebrate the tradition of the Day of the Dead from their home, and that on Halloween, October 31st, they do not go to the malecón, as it is done every year, in order to avoid possible congregation of people in this space and not to expose their health and well-being.
Puerto Vallarta is known for it's long list of many charming barrios and at the top of the list is Barrio 5 De Diciembre. A bustling, festive area which is nestled between the beach and the hills, just south of the Hotel Zone. As in most neighborhoods around the city, it's steep, narrow, cobblestone streets are lined with taquerias, farmacias, papelerias, banks, souvenir shops and many other types of businesses and restaurants.
