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.

As the Spring Break, Easter vacation and Semana Santa crowds dissipate from Puerto Vallarta, we now move into our lovely summer season. While many people think of Puerto Vallarta as the perfect winter vacation destination in Mexico, May through September is actually one of the nicest times to vacation in our charming city. Here are just a few reasons why:

  • Fewer crowds – Summer season is the perfect time to experience Puerto Vallarta like a local, without the tourist crowds. It’s a wonderful time to explore the city, the beaches and the markets.
  • Lush greenery – The summer season in Puerto Vallarta is when our beautiful Sierra Mountain Range looks the greenest and beautiful. It’s also the perfect time to take a trip to the gorgeous Vallarta Botanical Garden. Tip: bring a swimsuit to take a cool dip in the river and leave time to stay and enjoy lunch in their beautiful restaurant with its amazing view.
  • Nature’s fireworks – Rainy season in Puerto Vallarta runs May through October, but our rains usually roll in once or twice a week in the late afternoon, after sunny days, to bring cooler temperatures and incredible showers that last about an hour before dissipating. If you have never seen a tropical rain shower, it is truly an experience and even locals that have lived here their entire lives, throw open their doors to welcome the first big rain of the season. But even more, the rains come with fantastic lightning shows over Bay, that promise to provide some of the best vacation photos you will ever take.

To add to the many reasons why you will want to visit Puerto Vallarta in the summer season, you can take advantage of our best rates of the year at Pinnacle Resorts on our luxury vacation rentals in the Puerto Vallarta Romantic Zone. Make your reservation today and enjoy your Puerto Vallarta summer vacation with Pinnacle Resorts.

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.
