Puerto Vallarta posseses a vibrant
art scene, perhaps the most lively in all of Mexico, with dozens
of galleries small and large featuring local, regional, national,

stroll through over a dozen beautiful galleries all within close
proximity to each other while enjoying free cocktails and snacks...meet
artists and gallery owners...and maybe pick up a beautiful new
piece of original art for your home.
