New Year’s Eve in Puerto Vallarta

new year
Every year, same concern: where should we spend the last night of the year and hail in first one of the next year? A sunny and warm place sounds like a good plan! Especially if the New Year’s Eve includes live shows and music, very traditional customs and great food!

A very traditional Mexican New Year’s Eve

As a past Spanish colony, Mexico kept plenty of Spain’s customs, always innovated with Mexican “spice.” Particularly at this time of the year, Mexican traditions lead us to a very warm ambiance full of colors and flavors. For the New Year’s Eve, Mexican people used to eat 12 grapes when the midnight bell rang. One grape for one knock, what could be interpreted like one for each month past or coming.

Enjoy a walk throught Puerto Vallarta

New year Every year, Puerto Vallarta down town become the best place to enjoy the New Year’s Eve. Indeed, many streets downtown became pedestrian only, making it very enjoyable to walk down and stop to eat some delicious Tacos or Tamales.  In addition to a typical street food market, you would be able to enjoy the second edition of the Fireworks Festival with live music shows, right one the malecón! Likewise, the Romantic Zone and Olas Altas will be full of music, flavors and great people watching! Anywhere you may be will be enjoyable and don’t worry about missing the Fireworks show: you will see it from every angle of the city!

Buyer demographic shifting in Puerto Vallarta home market

Who is buying in Puerto Vallarta?

Puerto Vallarta has long been a perfect destination for retirement, vacation and every-day living. From the idyllic weather, pristine beaches and great market culture, Puerto Vallarta is an easy choice for many people. More and more however the buyer demographic is changing from the traditional people approaching retirement-age.

Puerto Vallarta home buying for investment

Increasingly, young professionals invest in Puerto Vallarta with the goal to earn rental income, for a few years before retirement. What impact does this have on the market? First, there has been a boom in high-density condo development in the popular areas of the city. Second, the availability of properties for our more traditional “golden age” demographics may be scarce. Rental- investors look at attractive “rental qualities” overlapping dramatically with retirement age “hit-list.”

Puerto Vallarta Investment for rentals

Optimal qualities for rental properties

What are the keys for attractive rental selection? Well, when in doubt about rentals, check Air bnb. Now the largest “hotel brand” in the world according to an article by Forbes, 2017! On the first page 70% of the rentals mention or depict a VIEW and 50% have a lovely pool in the lead image. These aspects are even more important than location. We see this in the trend to purchase some of the new developments in Old Town Vallarta such as Loft 268, Pavilion, and Nayri, many units sacrificing view for the prime walkability of the location.


Puerto Vallarta for Retirement

While a younger demographic is moving into the home purchase market in Retiring in Puerto VallartaPuerto Vallarta, we are experiencing the usual investment around retirement age. The difference here is that there has been no slow in the market, even as the heat (and humidity) of summer have crept up. The market has remained busy and all signs bode well for a fantastic close to 2017!
