The Spirit of a Puerto Vallarta Christmas is Felt Everywhere
Puerto Vallarta embraces what the true spirit of Christmas is. A season to be thankful, a time to share, and spend moments of togetherness. Itâ€™s the perfect time to remember the good things we received and feel grateful for it. A time to lend a hand to those in need and share the abundance of blessings we have. Christmas is when families and friends meet and gather to celebrate the birth of Jesus in this predominantly Catholic country.
A lot of Christmas parties called posadas are held, which are joyous festivities to share the seasonâ€™s magical moments with your closest friends and family. One great event that happens during the early weeks of December is the Festival Of Our Lady of Guadalupe. This festival sees the streets of Downtown Puerto Vallarta filled with floats and processions, making their way to the church of Guadalupe.
A Sunny Christmas
Winter time in the northern hemisphere is dreaded because of its low temperature and biting cold weather. Most countries see their citizens all wrapped up in thick clothes when winter and Christmas comes. Puerto Vallarta is different because winter remains warm and sunny, giving new meaning to the Christmas carol, â€œI saw three ships come sailing in, on Christmas Dayâ€¦â€ Christmas in Puerto Vallarta spells lots of outdoor activities and fun. Imagine having Christmas on the beach!
The Christmas Whales
Puerto Vallarta Christmases provide unique adventures not witness in many part of the globe. The holiday season welcomes its biggest visitors, literally speaking, which comes out of the deep seas for everyoneâ€™s enjoyment. Humpback Whales reach the Banderas Bay around November time to give birth, and stay until around the end of March. What an experience it is to see these mammoth creatures traversing the blue ocean. Take a whale watching trip and see them do natural stunts like spyhopping and raising their tail and fin giving the waters a big splash. Itâ€™s entertainment that only nature can give, gifting you with a one heart stopping show on your Puerto Vallarta Christmas vacation.
