Vacations in Puerto Vallarta during hurricane season?

By

If you are thinking of traveling to Puerto Vallarta or you have already booked your reservation and you are worried about the weather, don’t worry, we are here to tell you that not all is lost.

It’s well known that the rainy and hurricane season begins in Puerto Vallarta in June but this doesn’t have to spoil your plans, since Puerto Vallarta is not facing the open sea, but is located inside Bahía de banderas, the city rarely receives the full impact of these tropical phenomenon, nothing more than a cloudy sky and a few drizzles; Furthermore, these phenomenon frequently goes back to the sea, leaving this little paradise intact.

What is our recommendation?

Mornings are usually the perfect time to enjoy the sun, go to the beach and do outdoor activities. As the day progresses and after having enjoyed the points of interest that the beautiful city of Puerto Vallarta offers, you can relax on the terrace of your balcony, have a cocktail and enjoy magical sunsets, as the clouds become canvases when they are touched by the last rays of sun, a true work of art.

If that’s not enough for you, here are 3 reasons to visit Puerto Vallarta this summer

  1. With the arrival of the rainy season, the vibrant colors and tropical foliage stand out, the areas that look dry and sad in winter season come to life, the hills of the Sierra Madre are painted with an intense green as well as the islands and the parks, showing off the exquisite natural wealth of the area.
  2. It is an excellent season to find promotions and discounts such as our summer rate or our breakfast included promotion where if you book directly with us, during your stay from July 1 to September 30, breakfast is on us!
  3. If you are one of those who enter the sea one step forward and two steps back because the water is cold, that will not happen to you this season because the water temperature in the bay is 29 ° Celsius (average).

Summer is one of the best times to take a trip to the beach because of the summer rates, the intense green foliage and crystal clear waters, belive us your photos will be more instagrammable than ever.

Getting Ready to Welcome You Back!

By

Pinnacle Resorts is happy to announce that we are now accepting reservations for stays beginning July 1, 2020, and beyond. During this challenging time, as the globe has united in a common goal of good health, we have done our part to protect our community. Our properties closed on a voluntary basis in mid-March and are now part of the mandatory closure order issued by our government until the end of May 2020. During this time, we have had staff shelter at home with only essential team members – following social distancing protocol – on the properties for maintenance and security needs, and each and every Pinnacle Resorts staff member has received their full salary while staying at home.

We miss our guests and are looking forward to welcoming you back again soon. Should government guidelines remain unchanged, with businesses opening back up at the end of May, we will be spending the entire month of June focusing on sanitizing and disinfecting all private and common areas on our properties, with specific procedures that go above and beyond our already strident cleaning policies. We believe that the safety of our guests and team members comes first, above all else, so we will take that additional time before welcoming visitors back, to ensure that your stay is worry-free, healthy, and happy.

As the world reopens, we want to make it easy for our guests to return to beautiful Puerto Vallarta. For any guests that had to cut their Pinnacle Resorts stay short or cancel their stay due to world health concerns, we will be offering credits and are available to help rebook your stay in your favorite suite. We will also be offering special Summer Season Sizzlers, fantastic promotional rates to treat yourself to a luxury stay for less.

For the remainder of May, we will be working at home, but invite you to contact us via our Online Chat function or email.

We wish everyone good health, thank you for doing your part to keep the world safe and look forward to pampering you during your Pinnacle Resorts stay very soon.

VISITING EL TUITO

By

One of the reasons that Puerto Vallarta is such a popular visitor’s destination is that in addition to the amenities that you would expect to find in a world-class tourist destination (fine dining, adventure excursions, golf, spas, shopping, beaches, convention center, cultural activities, etc.), there are many little towns and villages that are close enough to Vallarta to make a great day trip but still feel like they are a million miles away. 

 El Tuito is exactly one such little town.  Located to the south of Puerto Vallarta, in Cabo Corrientes at the farthest end of Banderas Bay, El Tuito has a population of just 4000 and very much feels like a traditional Mexican little town.

The plaza (town square) is surrounded by some beautifully restored homes that all have a striking uniformity due to the particular orange hue of the local clay that is used for building here.  There is also a small museum where you can learn about the heritage and origins of El Tuito and its residents.

You will also find little shops selling locally grown and crafted items like handmade cheeses, organic coffee and raicilla, a local bootleg liquor similar to tequila that has only recently been made legal for sale.

Ask your Concierge at Pinnacle Resorts to arrange a taxi for you,  you can reach El Tuito by car in about one hour from downtown Puerto Vallarta or you can take a public bus marked “El Tuito” or “Botanical Gardens,” from the corner of Basilio Badillo and Insurgentes, located in Old Town of Vallarta.

RESIDENCES SKY BAR AT PINNACLE RESORTS 220

By

Located on the rooftop terrace of Pinnacle Resorts 220Residences Sky Bar offers a breathtaking 360-degree view across the Pacific waters of Banderas Bay all the way to the horizon, city views of charming Puerto Vallarta and the lush jungle of the majestic Sierra Madre mountains. A meandering, sparkling pool with cross-over bridges invites a refreshing swim or catching some sun and a snooze on a pool lounger.  

Visit the bar and ask the friendly bartenders to whip up your favorite vacation beverage, or visit during our famous Pinnacle Resorts Happy Hour, daily from 5:30 pm to 8:00 pm, and enjoy 2×1 top shelf cocktails and wine, while relaxing in the comfortable, shaded lounge areas. 

The convenience and amenities at Pinnacle Resorts have made us a traveler’s best choice for luxury vacation rentals in Puerto Vallarta. With more spacious accommodations than a traditional hotel room and fully equipped suites with washer/dryer, complete kitchens, and many suites offering outdoor BBQs and Jacuzzis or dip-pools, your suite is as much of vacation destination as Puerto Vallarta is itself.

PINNACLE PICKS: GERNIKA PINTXOS

By

If you are planning a Puerto Vallarta vacation this September, you will find that some local restaurants close during the month for annual holidays. But there are dozens of fantastic dining options, all located just steps away from your vacation rental in the Puerto Vallarta Romantic Zone. One of our favorite late summer dining choices is Gernika Pintxos, where you can enjoy a taste of Spain, with a spicy twist of Mexico. 

Pintxos”, similar to Spanish tapas, are bite-sized portions, often served on a skewer or piece of bread, perfect for sharing. The chef and co-owner at Gernika Pintxos are originally from Spain and have created a menu of traditional and authentic tastes of the Basque region. This year, they are also excited to announce a new wine list, created in conjunction with the wine experts at Uncork Mexico, which features some of the best wines from Spain and Mexico to accompany your meal. 

With a location that offers an air-conditioned dining room or outdoor terrace seating with a beautiful view of the Los Muertos Pier, Gernika Pintxos is a Pinnacle Concierge “Best Restaurants in Puerto Vallarta” pick for summer dining. Contact them for directions or reservations during your stay in our luxury vacation rentals in downtown Puerto Vallarta.

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.
