Marsol Friday Market by the Pier: Walk and Learn

Have you ever wondered who created some of the charming houses in Old Town Vallarta? Or the name of a tree or flower? Or where to eat that can accommodate wheelchairs? Sandra Cesca answers those questions on her exciting walking tours. Not content to just walk around town, Sandra is also an accomplished writer and photographer. Her walks led her to expand her own curiosity by publishing a couple of books on native plantings complete with her own photographs. Her camera has led her to Europe and the Far East with many stunning images reproduced as giclees (printed on stretched canvases). From greeting card-size to something for your living room wall – ask Sandra, the first smiling face inside the door at the Marsol Market.
