|Puerto Vallarta New Year's Eve Party Guide|
December 20, 2010
Puerto Vallarta Mexico offers all of the necessary ingredients for a magical experience that will make your New Year's Eve celebration an occasion to remember! Whether you choose to listen to live music, enjoy fine food and drink, dance the night away - or all of the above - Puerto Vallarta is the ideal place for those in search of the perfect New Year's Eve party.
Some people choose to "take it to the streets," wandering in and out of the many bars and restaurants in El Centro or dropping in on the Olas Altas street party before heading to the Malecón for the city's New Year's Eve celebration, Fusión de Sentidos: Fiesta Vallarta 2011 - which promises to be the best in years - or down to Los Muertos Beach to watch the firework displays over the bay at midnight.
Others book an "all-inclusive" evening of food, drinks and dancing 'til dawn at a Banderas Bay area hotel or resort, while still others choose to reserve a table at one of Vallarta's numerous gourmet restaurants for an intimate evening of wining, dining and romance.
Whatever your preference, our Guide to Banderas Bay's Best Places to Party on New Year's Eve will give you a closer look at some of the most spectacular celebrations taking place in Puerto Vallarta and around the bay on the last night of 2010.
2010 New Year's Eve celebrations will be added to our Puerto Vallarta Party Guide as more information becomes available, so check back often for additional venues.
