Tuesday, Nov 1 – 4pm Poolside
Froth! Fizz! Lather! Suds! Some may want to keep their effervescent costumes simple, because this fun-in-the-sun V-Dance is bound to end up in the pool!
Wednesday, Nov 2 – Day of the Dead! – 3pm Poolside
The Chinvat Bridge separates the world of the living from the world of the dead. Tonight, we’ll all be walking over that bridge as VACAYA takes you into town for the local Dia de los Muertos festivities. But before we take that stroll, get all decked out in your Day of the Dead costume and dance to purify your soul before the sun sets and we all take that walk together! Danza de la Muerte!
Included shuttles to downtown will begin around 5pm. So come dance with fellow Vacayans for an hour or two and then hit the Malecón for all the local festivities!
Thursday, Nov 3 – 9pm Beach Club
¡I AM FIRE! Tonight, we’re hitting the beach for the ULTIMATE tribute to all things glowingly pyro-rific! Be ready to dance in the sand and celebrate the primal heat! Need a little inspiration? Think reds, yellows, oranges, glow, neon, and firefly sparkles!
THE “M” V-DANCE
Friday, Nov 4 – 4pm Poolside
Each resort trip ends with our signature letter V-Dance and today, we’re celebrating our host country Mexico with the letter M! Mexico has always opened its wide and welcoming arms to our community, and even through tough times, they’ve been there for us. So today, be inspired by Margaritas, Mujers, Madres, Manzanas, Melocotóns, Mariscos, or any other M word that makes you smile!
For nights where there aren’t parties at the resort, we’re working with local club/bar/lounge owners to produce events at their LGBT+ establishments in the Zona Romantica, the nearby gay area of Puerto Vallarta. So plan on spending several nights “on the town” with The Vacayans! Our ground transportation partner Amstar will sell a shuttle pass that’ll take you from the resort to the heart of the Zona Romantica for those nights – Oct 30, Nov 1, and Nov 4. Also, Ubers are readily available and cost less than $5 each way.
