Comfortable air and water temperatures all year long make stunning Punta Mita, Mexico, the perfect tropical vacation paradise during any time of the year. This beachfront village has it all, and you can always enjoy amazing outdoor activities that include snorkeling and scuba diving in the clear waters of the Pacific Ocean, exploring the jungle’s incredible plant and animal life and hiking along the many mountain trails that reveal extraordinary surprises at every turn. However, those who visit during the fall months may also take part in several special activities that are scheduled in and around Punta Mita. These are just a few examples of the fall fun that you may want to experience during your Punta Mita stay.
The Day of the Dead Festival
Though it may sound like a downer, this is an entertaining festival that is held in Punta Mita and all across Mexico every year. This year, it begins on Tuesday, Oct. 31, and it runs through Thursday, Nov. 2. While this is a Mexican holiday that is aimed at honoring those who have passed on, it’s made up of a series of exciting events and activities that celebrate life. You’ll encounter elaborate activities at every turn, and nearby Puerto Vallarta usually puts on the biggest celebration with a huge parade through the streets, a beer festival, face painting and other special activities for children, live music and dancing in the streets and a huge fireworks display. You’ll also find many street vendors who offer special Day of the Dead treats that you won’t find at any other time of the year, so be sure to indulge yourself with a beautifully handmade and delicious sugar skull.
Punta Mita PeeWee Surfing League
Families who are vacationing with young surfing superstars will enjoy this exciting event that is held in Punta Mita on Saturday, Oct. 14 and again on Saturday, Nov. 25. This exciting competition offers two divisions for children ages 4 to 8 and children ages 9 to 12. A nice award goes to the best performance in each age group, and it’s a fun day for the entire family.
Punta Mita Gourmet and Golf Classic
If you are a lover of fine food and golf, then you’re sure to want to be a part of Punta Mita’s Gourmet and Golf Classic. This event begins on Thursday, Nov. 30, and it runs through Saturday, Dec. 2. Each day is filled with golfing on both of the prestigious Jack Nicklaus courses, the Bahia and the Pacifico. When the day of play is done, you’ll enjoy the most exquisite dishes along with the best wines from both chefs and winemakers from Mexico and all around the world.
Vallarta-Nayarit Gastronomica Event
True foodies will definitely want to take the short trip over to lovely Nuevo Vallarta for an extended gourmet weekend that’s like nothing you’ve ever experienced before. This event begins on Sunday, Oct. 22, and it runs straight through Wednesday, Oct. 25. Considered one of the most important culinary affairs in the country, this event features several of the world’s top chefs who have been honored with multiple Michelin stars, and they’re here to showcase some of their most incredible dishes. Those in attendance may enjoy gourmet workshops, premium tastings, multiple cooking activities and the chance to get cooking tips from your favorite chefs.
