This sweet little island can be reached several ways, including by taking stairs leading down from the gorgeous new bridge that crosses over the river or by crossing a hanging bridge. Once on La Isla Rio Cuale there are sweet walkways surrounded by jungle foliage, trees housing iguanas and parrots, and by looking over the side of the island you will see water rushing over rocks. La Isla Rio Cuale is a must-see for all visitors to Puerto Vallarta. Here shops overflow with a large variety of colorful Mexican crafts, and lovely restaurants serve refreshing drinks and delicious food. Isla Rio Cuale is a perfect place to browse shops, take a relaxing sit in the shade or just stroll around taking beautiful pictures.
