Museo Del Cuale - Review
This tiny museum on the island in the middle of the Rio Cuale is surprisingly insightful and immersive. It explores the traditions and customs of ancient tribes of Mexico from pre-Columbian times. Most items are from the the Ixtapa Archeological Zone along the Ameca River. Some of the artefacts on display here date from 5000 BC. These include examples of ceramics, art, and hunting tools. Civilizations and settlements represented here include The Purepecha, Aztatlán, Chupicuaro. There is also a section dedicated to the Spanish colonisation practices. The main exhibit is a tomb found in excavations at Sayula-Zacoalco in Jalisco.

Museo Del Cuale, Puerto Vallarta Reviews
Free and open worth stopping in. This museum is tucked away on the Isle Cuale nestled between the two forks of the River Cuale. It offers insight into Central American culture, specifically to Mexico and Puerto Vallarta. One of the greatest insights was the specific Asiatic influence on the Pacific coast of Mexico and how the diet and particular affinities became ingrained into what we experience today. 5/5, definitely stop in and have a look.
If you are looking for something to do on a hot day and are too sunburned to stay in the water- this place has air conditioning! And you might learn something. Very small museum, but free and well cared for.
This small, quaint museum will give you an idea of the history and archeology of the original inhabitants of the area. It is located on the end nearest the ocean on the Rio Cuale. Be sure and leave a small donation.
Nice looking place (from the outside). Looks like it's closed most of the time.
