This year I decided to surprise my wife with a trip to celebrate our fourth wedding anniversary. Keeping in mind that this time our little son wouldn’t be coming with us, I didn’t have to think too hard about where to go. All I was looking for was a destination where we can spend some days remembering why we decided to join our lives…and Puerto Vallarta was that place.
We stayed at Raintree’s Club Regina Puerto Vallarta located on La Marina, where you have access to a beautiful beach and stunning sunsets. Each night, we took some time around 8pm to take a seat, relax and enjoy the sunsets. My wife really loved the Vallarta sunsets.
We were lucky to arrive during Puerto Vallarta’s “Restaurant Week,” so many restaurants in Puerto Vallarta created a special menu with special prices so you can taste a chef’s selection for a very affordable price. One of our favorites was Café des Artistes. This is a fancy place with very interesting decorations on the main floor; however, if you want to get some fresh air, they have a beautiful terrace surrounded by a lot of flowers, plants and trees. I recommend the roasted tomato soup and the tequila shrimp…delicious!
Something you just can’t miss if you go to Puerto Vallarta is the “Rhythms of the Night” tour, which takes place on a beach called “Las Caletas.” You are taken there on a catamaran and once there, the very friendly crew serves you some drinks while you sit at a table at the edge of the shore. Surrounded by very light music and the sounds of the waves, you also enjoy an amazing buffet dinner and an entertaining show – it’s an amazing musical show about a Mayan Princess and Principe that fell in love.
And last but not least, the revamped “Malecón” is something that you need to see. This boardwalk along the beach has so much: restaurants, night clubs, sand sculptures, and an art gallery. What a unique destination to reignite the spark of love…
