El Pitillal Map, which shows the once small village on the other side of the Rio Pitillal, on the outskirts of town, is now part of the municipality of Puerto Vallarta. It is more like a suburb of the Puerto Vallarta where many local workers live. Next to the traditional plaza is the San Miguel Arcángel Parish church, which has twenty six foot tall sculpture of Jesus Christ carved from one single piece of wood hanging over the altar. In September the 29th is the Feast of Saint Michael and there will be many festivities centred on the church and the plaza in front of it. After dark a big fireworks display.
The town is very non touristy but offers some wonderful shopping opportunities and interesting restaurants. Very little English spoken here.
Many busses go here just look for Pitillal on the front.
