Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico – Puerto Vallarta is an awesome place to party anytime of the year, but on New Year’s Eve it literally detonates! Fireworks exploding all over Banderas Bay provide an excellent backdrop for the festivities, and wherever you turn the city is one huge party, with something fun for every taste and budget.
Some people choose to “take it to the streets,” bar crawling; hangin’ on the Malecón, where there will be a huge celebration that includes free entertainment and an awesome fireworks display at midnight; or dropping in on the Olas Altas street party before heading to the beach or Los Muertos Pier to watch the fireworks over Banderas Bay.
Others book an “all-inclusive” evening of food, drinks and dancing ’til dawn, while still others choose to reserve a table at one of the city’s fine dining restaurants for an intimate evening of wining, dining and romancing.
Whatever your preference, there’s no better place to celebrate the end of one year and the beginning of another than in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
