ROMANTIC PICKS FOR VALENTINE’S DAY IN PUERTO VALLARTA

By

It is difficult to imagine a more romantic setting than Puerto Vallarta for Valentine’s Day, especially in a luxury vacation rental in Old Town Puerto Vallarta at Pinnacle Resorts, where you can enjoy incredible sunsets over Banderas Bay and warm ocean breezes from your own private terrace.

With a wonderfully central location, our Romantic Zone vacation rentals are within easy walking distance to some of the most romantic restaurants in Puerto Vallarta. Here are some Pinnacle Resorts Concierge picks for a perfect Valentine’s dinner with your sweetheart:

Café des Artistes: always a classic, this fine-dining restaurant from renowned chef, Thierry Blouet, is elegant and sophisticated, seated either in the beautiful formal dining room or the lush garden terrace. To add to the ambiance, they have romantic live piano music nightly.

Trio: serving Mediterranean cuisine in a cozy dining room with hand-painted murals or up on the rooftop terrace, Trio is a long-time favorite for special celebrations, with a wonderful wine list to accompany the excellent service and beautifully presented menu.

La Cappella: Italian fare served in one of the most beautiful rooms in Puerto Vallarta, with a panoramic view of the steeple crown of the Our Lady of Guadalupe Church and across the Pacific Ocean. To make a sunset dinner even more romantic, enjoy live strolling violists while you dine.

The Iguana: what could be more romantic than dining in the stunning villa that was once owned by Liz Taylor during her Puerto Vallarta love affair with Richard Burton, which sparked during the filming of “Night of the Iguana”? Enjoy contemporary Mexican cuisine and live Mariachi music.

Talk to your Pinnacle Resorts concierge for reservations at these or any of the best restaurants in Puerto Vallarta, all within a perfect night’s stroll from Pinnacle Resorts.

WHERE TO CELEBRATE 2019 IN PUERTO VALLARTA

By

While it is very tempting to celebrate New Year’s Eve 2019 from the private terrace of your luxury vacation rental in the Puerto Vallarta Romantic Zone with beautiful views of the midnight fireworks over Banderas Bay, if you are looking to go out to celebrate, your Pinnacle Resorts Concierge is at your service.

For a full night party, we recommend the Puerto Vallarta New Year’s Eve Party at La Palapa and El Dorado, two side-by-side beachfront restaurants just a short stroll from your Pinnacle Resorts vacation rental.  Their party will feature a 5-course menu with premium open bar, DJ and dance floor, party favors and an oceanfront view to the fireworks at midnight. Cost is $3,800 pesos per person and includes tax and gratuity.

For a Puerto Vallarta New Year’s Eve dinner out, your Pinnacle Resorts Concierge will be able to assist you with reservations any restaurant serving a festive meal. Some guest favorites are Trio, Vitea, The Swedes, Azafrán and Café Des Artistes. Your concierge will have full dinner menus available to choose the perfect option for your celebration.

No matter if you go out or choose to celebrate from the luxury of your private Pinnacle Resorts suite and terrace, we thank you for spending the start to 2019 with us.

THE ALTARS OF DÍA DE MUERTOS

By

If you will be staying in our luxury vacation rentals in the Puerto Vallarta Romantic Zone during the last weekend in October, you will be in the perfect location to participate in one of the most special traditions in Mexico: Día de Muertos.

Not to be confused with Halloween, Día de Muertos is celebrated on November 1st and 2nd and is a combination of ancient Mesoamerican and Spanish traditions of celebrating the memory of the dead. But Día de Muertos is far from a somber time, in fact, it is a time to celebrate the lives of loved ones who have departed with music, dance, food and drink.

Mexicans will create altars dedicated to their loved ones and decorate them with offerings to ease their time in the hereafter, with gifts based on the four elements: water, wind, earth and fire. Water… and sometimes Tequila or other favorite drink is left so the spirits won’t be thirsty. Colorful paper banners represent the wind and candles represent fire, helping the spirits to find their way. And earth is represented with food, often the delicious pan de muerto, a sweet bread decorated with sugared fruit. Altars are usually decorated with marigold and depictions of butterflies to help lead the spirits and sugar skulls and toys are often found on the altars of children who have passed too soon.

If you are in Puerto Vallarta during Día de Muertos, visit the Plaza Las Armas beside our famous Malecón, to see some of these beautiful altars and experience this wonderful tradition.

THE HUICHOL ARTISANS

By

The Huichol indigenous people have been living in our region for hundreds of years and artisanal handicraft is deeply ingrained in their rich culture. Intricate yarn and bead techniques are centuries old and have been passed down as a way of sharing the legend and beliefs of the Huichol community.

Art is used as a means of prayer and to interact with the spirit world, creating symbolic representations of the figures that are central to their belief system. Some of the symbols you will frequently see in the art of the Huichol include trees, bears, armadillos, deer, coyote and peyote plants. Serpents are also often seen in Huichol art, but unlike in some other cultures, the serpent is revered by the Huichol as it protects the corn and peyote from pests.

There are numerous art galleries in Puerto Vallarta where you can explore Huichol Art. Pinnacle Resorts offers the only luxury accommodations in the Puerto Vallarta Romantic Zone, only steps away from several galleries, as well as restaurants, beaches, nightlife and live entertainment, making it the perfect luxury vacation rental in Puerto Vallarta.

Ask our concierge for art gallery recommendations and on ways to support the Huichol people of Puerto Vallarta.
