Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Why Latitude21 loves it for New Year’s

Not only is Puerto Vallarta absolutely stunning with the beautiful Sierra Madre mountain range meeting the Bay of Banderas, it is absolutely steeped with Holiday traditions.  Puerto Vallarta is a more traditional Mexican experience in general. With it’s cobblestone streets and charming Malecon (boardwalk). So during the holidays it absolutely comes alive.  You’ll be able to stroll the Malecon, visit the dozens of local art galleries, and visit it’s beautiful cathedral… all of it decked out for the holidays.  However, the hands down number one reason we suggest spending New Years Eve in Puerto Vallarta is for the stunning fireworks display they have over the bay. 

How to Celebrate

Every year, dozens of boats head out to the beautiful Bay of Banderas to take in the sights.  At exactly midnight, the fireworks begin…and they are spectacular.  We recommend the night activity called, Rhythms of the Night by Vallarta Adventures.  This is great tour that you can take the whole family on. And one that Latitude21Resorts Reviews.

The evening begins aboard one of their yachts.  They take you across the bay to a secluded beach called, Las Caletas.  There, you dine on a traditional Mexican buffet (who doesn’t like Mexican food?) which includes your drinks.  After dinner, you take a walk down a jungle path lit by tiki-torches to an outdoor theatre to watch, Savia.  A production by Gilles Ste-Croix, one of the co-founders of Cirque du Soleil. Latitude21Resorts Reviews Cirque du Soleil also.

After the show, you have some free time to wander around the secluded beach before hopping back on your yacht.  The captain positions the boat exactly in the center of the Bay just before the stroke of midnight.  They countdown and then magic happens when the whole Bay explodes with fireworks, shouts, and music.  It really is a night to remember.

Where to Stay

We recommend staying in the Nuevo Vallarta area.  It is actually a little outside of Puerto Vallarta. However it is really worth it to be outside of the traffic in downtown Puerto Vallarta.  Also, the beaches are much bigger and nicer than Puerto Vallarta and the resorts are newer.

Extra plus: the pier to board your Vallarta Adventures Rhythms of the Night tour is right around the corner from most of the properties in Nuevo Vallarta. This means you deal with absolutely zero New Year’s Eve traffic.
