Mexico is known for its colorful decor, rich flavors, and beautiful traditions. Those who visit our country for the first time, are delighted by the great variety of cultural aspects that distinguish us. From the exquisite Mexican cuisine to the traditional costumes and dances of each region, perhaps it is the festive spirit of Mexicans that most identifies us.
During the national holidays, the streets and shops of the whole country are filled with ornaments and multicolored figures that symbolize our independence, such as the Mexican flag, the bell of Dolores, and the faces of the heroes who fought for our homeland. All these customs and traditions are a big part of Mexican culture.
For the first time, Villa del Palmar Puerto Vallarta celebrates the month of independence with the Taste of Mexico, a unique experience for the whole family. Throughout September, you will enjoy food festivals, theme nights, cooking classes, entertainment, sports, and activities as part of our all-inclusive vacation packages. In addition to giving you a taste of Mexican culture, this program offers a vacation in Puerto Vallarta full of unforgettable moments, delicious food, and endless fun.
The art of Mexican gastronomy is very elaborate and full of meaning. It’s one of the reasons traditional Mexican cuisine was inscribed on the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity Representative List by UNESCO. Mexican cuisine is a living cultural manifestation, representative of humanity for its antiquity, historical continuity, the originality of its products, techniques, and procedures.
Villa del Palmar Puerto Vallarta will delight you with a culinary experience offering several festivals and buffets, such as a Broth and Stew Festival, Moles Festival, and, of course, the favorite of them all, the Taco Festival. You can eat your favorite Mexican food until you burst!
Not to mention all the activities you can enjoy via the Taste of Mexico program such as cooking classes to prepare guacamole and salsas in a traditional molcajete, bake cookies with seeds and even learn how to make drinks with tequila and mezcal. Children will also have classes to learn how to make their own pizza and cookies.
Never before have the all-inclusive vacation packages been so packed with options to make the most of your time. Start your day with a stretch session in front of the ocean or venture out on a kayak or paddleboard tour, and then form your team and become pool champions in fun water volleyball games. If you prefer a more relaxed day, you can play Pickleball with the family, make bracelets or join in when we all play bingo together. We will also ask questions and riddles so our guests can win many prizes they will love. The Mexican experience is enriched by activities such as the elaboration of pinatas and play the Mexican Loteria game.
Of course, a memorable holiday must have plenty of fun and entertainment. Every night, Villa del Palmar Puerto Vallarta will offer theme nights, shows, and entertainment for kids and adults; a series of unique experiences you will never forget.
Experience an authentic Mexican party with mariachi, folkloric dances, and other elements of Mexican culture; be amazed at the fire-fighting juggling and acrobatics that are featured at our oriental beach party, and you’ll love the performances at the dance shows our animation team has prepared for you. Take the house at our casino night or sing your favorite tunes out loud on karaoke night.
With the long list of children's activities included with the Taste of Mexico program, we guarantee you two things: fun and time for yourself. Let the little ones get creative by painting with watercolors, building sand castles, or doing art and crafts. You will experience a unique experience by making an eye of God and Huichol crafts that will be beautiful souvenirs for your home.
Watch as they have fun searching for treasure and balancing on a paddleboard. The pride they’ll feel when showing you the picture frame and eco-crafts they made with their own hands; during eco-crafts, the instructor takes advantage of teaching them the importance of caring for the environment.
And there are still several activities to mention. As you can see, the all-inclusive vacation packages have never been so complete. Celebrate the month of the country’s independence with an incredible Mexican experience at Villa del Palmar Puerto Vallarta!
