I did this quick and dirty time lapse video of Puerto Vallarta bay while dining at some friends’ Conchas Chinas condo sometime last week. As the sun went down, I had to adjust the aperture on my camera to compensate for the increasing darkness, which explains the sudden changes in lighting on the video. This is the view from one of the top units at La Cima III. Notice the Marigalante, a popular Puerto Vallarta attraction, and landmark looping around the bay, eventually getting closer to the Malecón to blast the nightly fireworks, usually around 9 pm. The Marigalante is one of Puerto Vallarta’s favorite attractions, offering daytime and evening cruises, along with a pirate show onboard.
