Puerto Vallarta Villas for Christmas & New Years Vacation
In the past few years, it has become increasingly popular to leave the cold weather and the holiday-related stress behind and escape to tropical destinations. While hotels and cruise lines offer an “all-inclusive” experience for the masses, a luxury vacation rental in Puerto Vallarta is quite the opposite and much more: It’s an “all-exclusive”, customized, stress-free and luxurious experience for the whole family at a price point that can compete with most luxury hotels.
Puerto Vallarta is the perfect getaway for the holidays, with its mild temperatures, sparkling blue waters, sandy beaches and traditional Mexican charm. But don’t let the tropical setting fool you, Puerto Vallarta also comes with a bag of festive spirit.
Mexicans love to celebrate and Christmas is certainly one of the biggest events of the year for them.
In the weeks leading up to Christmas, they attend multiple “posadas”, little Christmas parties with family and friends. In early December, Mexicans also celebrate the “Festival of Our Lady Guadalupe”, with nightly colorful street parades on the first twelve nights of the month. So basically, the entire month is one giant party with innovative Christmas decoration and light ornaments illuminating the streets at night.
Don’t forget to buy a Christmas souvenir from Puerto Vallarta for the ones who could not make the trip -at least this year. The little shops in Old Town Vallarta offer all kinds of gifts, ornaments and handcrafted souvenirs with a Mexican twist. If you’re more into high-end shopping and fashion, you’ll certainly enjoy the luxury boutiques, jewelry stores, hair salons and spas of Punta Mita and Nuevo Vallarta.
When Christmas is finally here, your luxury villa is the perfect place for your Christmas party.
Housekeeping will help you decorate the villa to your liking and your private chef will prepare an amazing Christmas dinner for you. No matter if you prefer a traditional Mexican meal, an American-style feast or something completely different. The staff will go above and beyond to make Christmas in Puerto Vallarta an unforgettable experience.
For New Year’s Eve, the concierge or property manager of your villa can arrange a party under the stars with live music, a bonfire and even a private fireworks display. Your personal chef and his staff will arrange a multi-course gourmet New Year’s Eve dinner or buffet for you, while barkeepers and waiters will make sure the glasses are always full until the new year finally arrives
If you feel more like going out, restaurants and clubs in Puerto Vallarta usually offer all-inclusive packages for New Year’s Eve, including a three to five-course dinner, drinks, and live music. The concierge will happily make reservations for you and arrange transportation, maybe in a stretch limo, a party bus or even a party boat. Sky’s the limit.
Last but not least, if you prefer a more authentic Mexican experience, join the street party at the Malecon, attracting large crowds of locals and tourists alike. The boardwalk is lined with food carts and street vendors offering street food, drinks and NYE-staples such as funny hats, things that make a lot of noise and oversized sunglasses. The highlight of the evening is obviously the big fireworks at midnight.
