The Christmas season in Punta Mita is an extremely busy time – so much so that it has taken the name of “High Season”, starting in the beginning of November, and lasting well into March. Restaurants and shops are full of folks, meaning the hustle and bustle correlated with the Christmas season will not be absent in your Casa Bonnie-ta stay. Make sure you head to the strip of fine dining restaurants in the town of Punta de Mita, right outside the gates of Punta Mita. You will find incredible dining options that have the perfect blend of holiday and tropical ambiance.
The in-house culinary stuff in Casa Bonnie-ta means your luxury villa rental will be smelling cozy your entire stay – and of course that you will be eating extremely well!

And hey, throw some classic Christmas jams on the stereo after coming back from one of the many Punta Mita beach clubs, to give your holiday that special boost of cheer.
If you’re looking to head out of the Punta Mita area and head to downtown Puerto Vallarta, you’re looking at a 45 minute to an hour drive – a small price to pay for the adventures that wait! For the first half of December, from December 1st to the 12th, you can expect to find the Festival of Guadalupe happening in downtown Vallarta. This 12-day long festival celebrates Our Lady of Guadalupe (Día de Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe,) who is known as the patron saint of Mexico. It is during these 12 days that the downtown area, commonly known as El Centro, comes alive with both devoted followers and spectators who make their way to the Cathedral of Our Lady of Guadalupe, right behind the malecon. Once at the Cathedral, they leave gifts for the Virgin and in return, receive a special blessing from the Priests. You can expect to see colorful and beautifully decorated floats, dancers, and folks singing songs in honor of the Virgin. The plaza that sits just below the church, sandwiched between the Malecon and church, becomes alive with street vendors selling anything from authentic Mexican cuisine to decadent desserts, or as they say in Mexico, postres. You can also expect to find many vendors selling artisan crafts and souvenirs – perfect to bring home to the fam! Churchgoer?
Back in Punta Mita, you can’t forget the incredible decorations inside the gates. Unforgettable displays, dinners and events at the Four Seasons, St. Regis and even in the numerous Punta Mita beach clubs will have you feeling all the holiday cheer you need. Staying for New Years?!
