There’s something celebratory about bidding adieu to the year gone by, which is why, usually the best, most outrageous festivals begin in November. This is also the time when you have plenty of reasons to travel. From Thanksgiving in an exotic destination to a Christmas party that is amazing by all accounts – November as well as December do pack quite the punch when it comes to special celebrations. Puerto Vallarta, of course, has its own charisma that will add more charm to your celebration.
Puerto Vallarta is one of the Western Hemisphere’s most popular destinations amongst the tourists. The white sands and turquoise ocean of Puerto Vallarta (PV) makes everyone fall in love. Being located on the west coast of Mexico, the beaches offer travelers a vantage point to take in the mesmerizing views of the romantic sunset. Having a glimpse of the stunning sunset is a great way to spend intermission between an evening spent partying and day spent basking in the sun.
The party never ends in PV, even when the rest of the world gets tired after the long Thanksgiving celebrations. So, let’s have a look at festivals in November 2016 that you shouldn’t miss out on while on your boat rental trip to Puerto Vallarta.
