Where Are You Going This Thanksgiving? Top 5 Villas to Celebrate in Puerto Vallarta
What is your Thanksgiving usually like? For most people, a typical Thanksgiving consists of a gathering at someone’s house, which means you need to do a thorough cleaning before everyone comes over. Then, followed by a full day of cooking, everyone can sit at a table for about 30 minutes to share a meal. Then you have to spend an entire day cleaning again, to tidy up after everyone.
Of course, on Friday, you get to do something extraordinary. First, you have the opportunity to maneuver through traffic, then spend all your money shopping for Good Friday.
Anywhere else in the world, this wouldn’t be considered a holiday. It would be work, especially if you’re the person doing all the cooking and cleaning.
That’s one of the many reasons families have started to take a more relaxed approach to the holiday. Instead of preparing meals in the kitchen, wouldn’t it be nice to have a beautiful home where we will do everything for you? But, of course, it is an option when you take a trip to an attractive tropical destination like Puerto Vallarta, where they can spend time with family, sharing lovely moments. Best of all, no one has to be cleaning and cooking.
In Puerto Vallarta, the weather is warm throughout the winter, but there’s a lot of fun and festivities during the four-day weekend. Here’s a list of things you can do over Thanksgiving weekend in Puerto Vallarta.
What To Do On Thanksgiving Weekend in Puerto Vallarta?
Spend The Day At The Beach
You could invent a new Thanksgiving day tradition, spend the day at the beach, and have dinner at one of the excellent beachfront restaurants. Most restaurants in Puerto Vallarta will have a special thanksgiving day menu to enjoy.
Go to A 5-Star Restaurant.
You could opt to go to one of Puerto Vallarta’s Five Star restaurants. You might try a restaurant with the most beautiful view in Puerto Vallarta, Le Kliff. Of course, if you genuinely want a spectacular meal, try Cafe Los Artistes (Elizabeth Taylor’s old home) or La Capella.
Stay at Home
If you are very traditional, you might want to stay home in your luxury villa and have your private chef create a delectable meal for your family. Then, enjoy sitting out on your private terrace and watching the sunset or swimming in your infinity pool.
Here are five spectacular Puerto Vallarta Vacation villas where you might prefer to spend your Thanksgiving weekend:
