Art enthusiasts will have lots of opportunities for indulging in their passion here, with everything from multiple art galleries in Zona Romantica to the incredible sculptures along the Malecon that are backed by the glistening expanse of the Pacific. If you’re hoping to take a piece back home, you’ll find something for every budget, including the local artists that sell their works on the Malecon along with high-end paintings in upscale galleries.
On Wednesday evenings from October through May, you can join in the Historic Center Art Walk, which features over a dozen art galleries all within about a 12-block stretch of the centro historico. The walk includes complimentary cocktails, wine and/or tequila, and the chance to purchase or browse a variety of authentic Mexican works. Just about every type of medium can be seen on display, including folk art, paintings, pottery and sculptures.
