However, shopping is fun and another way to meet people or learn more about this fine community.
Puerto Vallarta offers diversified shopping opportunities, from a very sophisticated shop in Old Town, aka Zona Romantica, to well-known shops at Marina Vallarta to very friendly beach vendors.
It is up to you what you would really like to purchase or add to your collection. For example, we are collectors of the primitive musical instruments and masks from all over the world. You may buy them in galleries, souvenir shops, or from beach vendors.
In our case, the most beautiful artistic mask we bought on our last day was at the beach.
The vendor himself was an artist, and it was fun to haggle the price. In the end, we got surprisingly high-quality, good art and talked for about 3 hours with the artist about subjects we would have never been able to get information about elsewhere.

One of suggestions is to take a deep sea fishing tour/ excursion. These are usually found in the Marina area. They typically travel out 30-45 minutes into the Pacific before you even get a chance to hold a rod. At that point, if you are lucky enough to get a nibble, it takes about 15-30 minutes to reel it in. This is an experience of a lifetime. No bucket seats that strap you down, just a rod and your arms -- how cool!
If you'd like to try the waters, without getting seasick, maybe try one of the booze cruises. They typically run about $50-75 per person, but last about 5-6 hours and include a meal and all drinks. They also give you a bit of sightseeing, but that's not the real fun. You are dropped of at a remote location for a couple hours and have that time to relax in an isolated part of Mexico. Definitely worth a try.

It was fun to watch the big cruise ships come and go from the water.
