Puerto Vallarta, Mexico (December 29, 2014) — Take a break from sweaters and scarves and celebrate a New Year of fun with a trip to the recently renovated Villa del Palmar Puerto Vallarta Beach Resort and Spa, the first and most traditional of the Villa Group Resorts.
“Villa del Palmar Puerto Vallarta offers fun for the entire family, for the New Year, and beyond,” said Paul E. Moreno, owner’s representative. “With a fresh new look and endless opportunities for adventure, relaxation and cultural immersion, Villa del Palmar Puerto Vallarta is an ideal escape from the Winter blues.”
The resort, which now showcases vivid colors and Mexican pop culture-inspired design, will kick off 2015 with a New Year’s Gala Dinner that will delight your senses with a festive dinner, live music and a spectacular fireworks show that will light up the sky across the famous Banderas Bay. With the right amount of attitude, atmosphere and energy, the resort’s Gala Dinner is the only proper way to ring in the New Year for those who love a great party.
The fireworks display is part of the 2014 the International Fireworks Festival in Puerto Vallarta, which is slated to brighten the skies nightly with light, color and music, from Christmas Day to New Year’s Eve.
If the New Year calls for a little adventure, tis the perfect season to book a whale watching tour, which can be arranged with the resort’s tour specialists. From late October to March, the most acrobatic of all whales, the Humpback, visits the Bay of Banderas to give birth. During that time, some female whales reproduce, while others nurture their newborns before returning to their feeding grounds in the north. Travelers can get up close with nature as whales play, jump and splash nearby, in a full 8-hour trip that includes snorkeling, or a quick 4-hour trip that focuses on whale watching.
In addition to gourmet meals and one-of-a-kind encounters with nature, an array of cultural experiences await guests of Villa del Palmar Vallarta, which is located just eight-minutes driving distance from Puerto Vallarta’s historical downtown.
Dozens of art galleries have taken up residence in the historical and charming Old Town (or “Zona Romántica”), with exhibitions including paintings, photography, sculptures, glasswork, ceramics, and jewelry by top Mexican and International visual artists. Several of them belong to the Old Town Art Walk, a self-guided art gallery walking tour that takes place Wednesday evenings during the Winter and Spring months, allowing locals and visiting art collectors to get to know the artists as they exhibit their own works.
Another option is Puerto Vallarta’s favorite weekend attraction, the Old Town Farmers Market-Tianguis Cultural. The market is a blend of the old-world Mexican tianguis and North American-style, with one-of-a-kind goodies ranging from organic coffee to handcrafted accessories, and artisan chocolates to natural body products. Each season, 100,000 national and international shoppers peruse goods from more than 80 vendor booths at this “producer-only” market. Conveniently located just 10 minutes from the resort, the market only showcases products that are made, baked, grown and sold by vendors who live within 75 kilometers of Puerto Vallarta.
Taking in the views at the newly renovated Villa del Palmar Puerto Vallarta should also be on every traveler’s agenda. The Villa Group’s most traditional resort has been transformed into the perfect blend of contemporary pop culture, and authentic Mexican hospitality. After 25 years in the Hotel District in the heart of Puerto Vallarta, the 511-room Villa del Palmar Puerto Vallarta was ready for a cosmetic makeover to match the warmness of the resort’s staff. The rooms now display welcoming textures, with Frida Kahlo-inspired touches. Bold colors in pink, turquoise and indigo pop against clean white walls, making for a unique modern Mexican style.
The renovation also includes a new, impressive entrance, updates to the resort’s two freeform pools, the addition of flowing waterfalls, more parking spaces and lush exotic gardens for added ambience.
