Over the Halfway Hump and Gearing Up for Winter

Ancient cultures created rituals to ensure that the sun would stop its southerly journey and bring back its life-sustaining light, heat, and promises of prosperity. Here in Puerto Vallarta, even scientifically informed individuals are actively encouraging the sun southward, much like a bowler wishing her ball onward towards the pins at the end of the lane. Here, the sun’s southerly journey is associated with a break in the heat and humidity of the rainy season and the promises of prosperity as international tourists begin returning in droves.

A vital sign that we’re on track for success is that hotel occupancy has already climbed past its halfway mark. Residents and businesses take this as an indication that their preparations for another winter season will garner all the abundance necessary to sustain another fruitful year.

Visitors at this time are met with the enthusiasm and warmth of a community celebrating their return. Hotels, restaurants, attractions, activity providers, and all their supporting operations have been readied to deliver extraordinary amenities, cuisine, and entertainment. We encourage our visitors to explore all the wonders that Puerto Vallarta, Banderas Bay, Riviera Nayarit, and our entire region offer to provide you with a lifetime of exciting memories and beckon you back year after year, to visit, or even move here permanently. Local businesses are encouraged to seize this occasion to promote their products and services to achieve their full potential of success this season. As the region’s largest and most widely distributed English newspaper, the Vallarta Tribune is uniquely poised to help our region’s businesses reach their advertising goals. Reach out to us today to hear what we have to offer!

Wishing a season of success to our residents and dreamlike vacations to our visitors,
