Santa, the Easter
celebration in Mexico, is not
only religious time for Mexican families but an important vacation period as well.
This year Semana Santa occurs from March 24th, Palm Sunday, to
April 1st, the day after Easter Sunday; although most students and many
workers will take a full two week holiday at this time of year which
essentially makes Semana Santa the
countryâ€™s version of Spring Break.
Itâ€™s great time to head to the beaches and
Mexicans do exactly that in droves.
During the Semana Santa holiday period, the beaches of Puerto Vallarta will be packed with
vacationing national visitors making for sometimes crowded conditions. Here are some tips to beating the Semana Santa crowds in Puerto Vallarta:
1. Use the new Los Muertos Pier to take a water taxi to the southern beaches of Las
Animas or Yelapa to avoid more crowded Puerto
Vallarta beaches like Los Muertos.
2. Stock up on groceries in the
days prior to March 24th to avoid long lines in the supermarket.
3. Itâ€™s a great time to take a
little road trip to explore some great areas around Puerto Vallarta that will be quieter over Semana Santa, particularly areas to the south like El Tuito.
And if all else fails, get into the party
mood! Mexicans are some of the
friendliest and most fun people in the world, so grab a margarita, call over
the Mariachi and enjoy this huge celebration in Puerto Vallarta.
