The Basics

Several city tours pass by the Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe, and guides will typically take time to explain the church’s backstory and significance. Many of these tours—which are sometimes private and customizable—also include visits to attractions such as Los Arcos, the Marina, and the Malecón. Others combine sightseeing in the downtown with more offbeat experiences—such as silver workshops—for returning visitors who want to see a different side to Puerto Vallarta. And even tequila fans can find a private, tasting-filled tour which also offers a glimpse at the church’s striking exterior.

When to Get There

For an atmosphere like no other, the best time to visit the Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe is throughout December. The first half of the month sees celebrations for the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe—as well as the anniversary of the founding of Puerto Vallarta—while the latter half is when Posada season and the Christmas festivities get underway. It’s open daily.

Attractions in Puerto Vallarta's Downtown

Combine a trip to see the Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe with a whistlestop tour of some of the city’s other principal attractions. Stroll the malecón, try tuba (a fermented drink) from one of the vendors, and snap a photo—if you can—in front of the colorful Puerto Vallarta sign. Dip in and out of the art galleries which dominate the Zona Rosa (Pink Zone) before relaxing on the bar-lined, palapa-dotted Los Muertos Beach.
