The month of October brings about a number of incredible reasons to visit the fun-loving town of Puerto Vallarta on Mexico’s Pacific Coast. From scuba diving adventures to cultural activities, there are plenty of reasons to head out on an exquisite vacation this time of year. Here are the top five reasons to book a vacation to Puerto Vallarta this October.
Scuba on the Mind!
As the hot temperatures and excessive humidity of the summer months subside, they leave the perfect conditions for an exceptional scuba diving experience. Not only will the water be a perfect warm temperature but you won’t suffer from the intense heat of summer on the way to your destination.
Best Foot Forward for Art
Puerto Vallarta’s fantastic Art Walk returns to its normal spot on Wednesday nights from 6-10 pm beginning at the end of October. Spend the evening engrossed in the artistic talents of some of Vallarta’s most prolific artists while sipping wine and strolling the cobblestone streets of the city’s center. Not only will you get a chance to view the beautiful paintings and sculptures that the various art galleries house, but you’ll also get a unique chance to meet some of the artists who call Vallarta their home.
Not Your Typical Farmer’s Market
Every weekend, community members get together on the south side of town for a Farmer’s Market that is truly an experience in itself. Stroll the many stands and get a feel for the unique characteristics of Puerto Vallarta’s culture, while browsing for art, jewelry, clothing, homemade crafts, and a diversified mix of artisan foods. All the products at Puerto Vallarta’s farmer’s market come right from individuals who call the city their home.
A Green Greener than Anything You’ve Ever Seen!
As the rainy season comes to an end, the lush green forests that cover Puerto Vallarta’s mountainside make the most of their moment in the sun. During the month of October, after they’ve had sufficient rains to spread their roots, the trees radiate in impressive shades of green, creating a bold and beautiful backdrop for some amazing photographs. From one end of the bay to the other, the natural beauty mesmerizes those who choose Puerto Vallarta as their home away from home. You will also find the waterfalls, both at the resort and at nearby locations, tumbling with fresh clear water.
Beat the Crowds
During the month of October, fewer tourists crowd the streets of the popular destination making it the perfect time to revel in the calm, serene feel of the city. Not only is national tourism almost nonexistent during this month because children have gone back to school, but international tourism is sparse because so many wait for the holidays to take a vacation. The low-key vibe and lack of crowds create the perfect setting for travelers wishing to relax on their vacation.
