Banderas Beat with Laura Gelezunas
Viva México! September is the month when Mexico celebrate El Mes de la Patria, (the month of our nation,) commemorating the country's Independence from Spain.
In this edition of Banderas Beat, Laura tells us a little bit of the history behind Mexican Independence Day and shows us one Puerto Vallarta restaurant that is serving up traditional Mexican dishes all month long.
She also visits a local taco stand where she samples Mexico's version of fast food and talks with a couple of expats, who explain why they moved to Puerto Vallarta in her ongoing "Boomers in the Bay" series.
Even the shortest of visits will open your eyes to the extraordinary number of things to see and do in Puerto Vallarta, so we've developed Banderas Beat, a monthly "INFOtainment" program that's not just for tourists - but for anyone with an interest in keeping their fingers on the pulse of the city.
Every month, Banderas News video journalist Laura Gelezunas will use her years of experience as an on-camera reporter in the U.S. along with her extensive knowledge of the Puerto Vallarta area to bring you informative and entertaining video reports covering everything from the hottest places to eat, drink and shop to information about Banderas Bay area attractions, events, and charitable organizations.
So, whether you're a first-time visitor looking for travel advice, inside tips and recommendations or a long-time resident that just wants to keep up with what's new, where it's at, and when it's happening in Puerto Vallarta - you'll find it on Banderas Beat.
