Punta de Mita

Christmas and New Years in Punta Mita

The magical holiday season is right around the corner, but maybe you’re not dreaming about a white Christmas this year. Instead of spending the holidays suffering from runny noses and frozen fingers, you can bring your sweetheart or your entire family to beautiful Punta Mita, Mexico, for an incredible tropical vacation that offers a festive atmosphere and excellent activities beneath the warmth of the Mexican sun.

Holiday Fun in Punta Mita

During the holiday season, you’ll find Punta Mita and the surrounding areas beautifully decorated for the holidays, and many activities and events are offered at this time of the year. These are just a few of the many festivities that you may want to enjoy in and around Punta Mita this holiday season.

A Different Kind of Christmas Morning With Santa

Your children are in for a Christmas experience of a lifetime when you bring them to Las Cuevas Beach on Christmas morning. After a long night of delivering toys, Santa Claus is going to skydive down to this beach just for the lucky children who are visiting Punta Mita. Santa will be available for pictures with the children, and the morning will be filled with seasonal treats, activities and gifts and the opportunity to take a turn smashing the Christmas pinata, which is filled with even more great treats.

New Year’s Eve Fun for the Entire Family

On Saturday, Dec. 31, your entire family may enjoy an authentic Mexican village festival at the Las Cuevas Beach. You’ll find the beach to be beautifully decorated for the occasion, and activities include live Latin music with plenty of room to dance, traditional Mexican art exhibits and a fabulous fireworks show to ring in the brand new year. Be sure to arrive hungry because lavish food stations will be available that offer visitors the opportunity to enjoy a Mexican culinary journey. Everything from traditional dishes to modern Mexican fare will be available, and there will be plenty of champagne and tropical drinks for the adults and sweets for the children to enjoy.

A Week of Christmas Celebrations

In nearby Puerto Vallarta, the city usually celebrates for the full week leading up to the day of Christmas. You’ll find special parties all over the city that showcase the Mexican tradition of reenacting Joseph and Mary’s search for lodging in Bethlehem. Guests are welcome to join the processions that are formed at designated homes, and you can expect to carry candles and sing songs until the home owner throws up the doors so that the party can get started. On Christmas Eve, these parties usually include a traditional Mexican feast that is followed by Midnight Mass.

New Year’s Eve Fiestas

Puerto Vallarta is also proud to rock this important night of the year, and you’ll find a party atmosphere throughout the city. Large groups tend to gather together at the Malecon in Viejo Vallarta and in Olas Altas Street at the Playa de Los Muertos Beach, and you can expect live music, dancing, plenty of food and drinks and fireworks to ring in the brand new year. You’ll also find that most of the city’s Latin night clubs will keep the party going until 6 a.m. the following day.

A Whale of a Christmas Gift

Only in Punta Mita can you give your family the gift of seeing immense pods of humpback whales in their natural habitat. This isn’t like other areas of the world where you wait for hours in the freezing cold in the hopes of getting a glimpse of a single whale. The Christmas season is also the time for the migration of these huge whales here in Punta Mita, and you can enjoy a cruise in pleasant weather on your way to see them. Not only can you expect to see numerous whales breaching the water, but your experienced captain will also know just where to take you to see mother whales with their young. It’s truly a wonderful experience for every member of your family.
