Visit Puerto Vallarta Mexico in May

May is a wonderful time in Puerto Vallarta! Many snowbirds have flown north and tourism drops off somewhat, yet fun events and local traditions keep the town popping like a string of firecrackers on Chinese new year.

One of our favorite affairs of the season has always been the Altruism Festival. Normally held at the Mariott Hotel on a long spread of lawn leading down to the waterfront, it is a perfect setting. The view is breathtaking as one walks through the hotel lobby and corridors to step out onto a parapet with a lively scene below. Participants in the festival include well-known restaurants in Puerto Vallarta and local entertainment throughout the day. For $500 pesos at the door ($400 advance) this is the bargain of the year and not to be missed, beginning on May 14th at 6 pm. This is a great opportunity to learn about non-profit organizations and local charities in Puerto Vallarta.

The day after the Altruism Festival, Restaurant Week begins, May 15 – 31 (two weeks actually) and we are truly excited, stepping out nearly every evening. Our first experience in Puerto Vallarta with Restaurant Week was many years ago and it was a delightful surprise. Prix Fixe is a French term that means fixed price. This is a fantastic opportunity to experience local venues at enormously discounted prices. Three courses in the Prix Fixe are served individually, with flair. The menu is limited with Prix Fixe but we like the idea of not having to make a decision over multitudes of excellent offerings. The prices hover around $350 pesos, which is an amazing deal. Buen provecho!

Gay Pride also falls in the month of May in Puerto Vallarta and it is an occasion for everyone! Puerto Vallarta has a vast LGBT community, compared to other Mexican destinations and many travelers will arrive with Gay Pride week as their main focus. From May 21 – 28 clubs, bars, restaurants, streets, and the beach will be rocking with concerts, art shows, gallery presentations, lots and lots of parties, cultural and intellectual gatherings. The week culminates with a fabulous parade, a display of pageantry, sequins, frivolity and love. We are looking forward to joining the Candlelight Memorial on May 22, signifying “Ending Aids Together.” On that day at 6 pm, we will gather in Parque Hidalgo and Parque Lázaro Cardenas and meet together at the Arches on the Malecón. This a contrasting march from the Pride Parade but equally important and emotionally moving. Following will be a White Party at the Club Mantamar, entrance fee $600 pesos. Celebrate diversity!

Here are a few of our guiding principals at Boardwalk Realty:

“First of all, we really want to get to know you,”   When we know you, we can tailor home tours to your tastes.”

Secondly, there’s the legal side of owning in Mexico. “Besides our own experience, we can save you a lot of time and money by offering you complimentary consultations with our partner attorneys.  The nuances of how you buy here can save you a lot of money when you sell. It’s important to know what you’re doing on the purchase so that when you sell you can best use any tax advantages. This service is free to our clients and can be invaluable.”

Both partners agree that the most important element of Boardwalk Realty is our ongoing service and commitment to our clients after the sale.  We are both passionate about protecting the investment and security of our clients.  “Our clients become our friends, we see them socially, and we treat them as we would like to be treated ourselves”, adds Mike.

Boardwalk Realty Puerto Vallarta represents buyers and sellers of real estate in the entire Bay of Banderas area, and will soon add a rental and property management division.
