Semana Santa, the Easter celebration in Mexico, is one of the most popular times for visitors to come enjoy a Puerto Vallarta vacation. The city welcomes visitors from Mexico City and Guadalajara, looking to escape city life and enjoy the beach, as well as tourists from Canada, the USA and other parts of the world.
Semana Santa is a 2-week holiday period, with religious observances falling on Good Friday, March 30th, and Easter Sunday, April 1st, and schools in Mexico closed from March 23rd to April 9th.
During such a popular time for family vacations in Puerto Vallarta, traffic will be a little heavier than usual, making Pinnacle Resorts’ prime location in the Romantic Zone even more attractive, as guests can walk to some of the best beaches, shopping, nightlife and dining in the city.
Visitors should anticipate that many businesses, especially small family businesses, will be closed March 30th to April 1st, except for tourism-based business and major businesses like grocery and department stores.
We recommend that you visit your Pinnacle Resorts concierge to make restaurant and tour reservations as early in advance as possible during your Semana Santa vacation to ensure availability. But enjoy this magical time in Puerto Vallarta, one of the most fun and vibrant times of the year in the city, from your luxury vacation rental in the heart of the city, where you can enjoy the action or have a peaceful retreat.
