Enjoy PV´s Festivals of the 57th Pez Vela Fishing tournament and the world famous Gourmet Festival, each happening at the beginning of the month. Then at month’s end brings the Thanks Giving holiday. Not exactly a Mexican holiday, Americans will have no trouble finding a wonderful Turkey Dinner to satisfy that craving for dressing. So get ready for November, it´s a party in progress.
November also brings with it what is considered to be some of the best fishing Mexico has to offer in our world famous fishing grounds. The weather is perfect, the days are fresh and the fishing is incredible. Marlin over 800 lbs, Yellowfin Tuna to 300 lbs, Sailfish are over abundant and Dorado are looking for your bait. You owe it to yourself to see Puerto Vallarta from the water one way or another.
