Puerto Vallarta will host the third annual Mango Festival next July 6, at the Lazaro Cardenas Park in the Romantic Zone, starting at 4:00 pm.

The event, organized by the Instituto Vallartense de Cultura y el Comité de Ciudades Hermanas Highland Park, will include live entertainment and the presence of more than 15 restaurants which, through gastronomical delights and refreshing drinks made with a mango base, will allow you to savor one of the sweetest fruits of the season.

This celebration will be open to the public, like a typical Mexican “kermés” (outdoor fair), where the attendants must purchase tickets (with a cost of $25 pesos) that they can exchange for food and/or drinks.

It is important to highlight that the collected funds will be in benefit of different projects focused on child development, such as “DesembocArte” (located in La Desembocada, Jalisco), and “Los Fridos” (in the neighborhood Educación of Puerto Vallarta); two organizations that promote art, and cultural activities.

The online edition of popular LGBTQ+ publication The Advocate published an article titled “Not Far From Puerto Vallarta Is a Slice of Gay-Friendly Heaven” by Diane Anderson-Minshall focusing on the W Punta de Mita resort and its offerings for the community.

At the W Punta de Mita, a modern artsy beach resort meets ancestral Indigenous history, offering an unexpected and wonderful experience.

Ironically, the W Punta de Mita feels like the perfect antidote to the extreme gentrification that’s happened in parts of Mexico. Less than an hour north of Puerto Vallarta, Punta de Mita feels a thousand miles away from their crowded beaches and Romantic Zone. With beautiful uncrowded beaches (I don’t think I saw a single beach vendor), proximity to the bars and restaurants — and an easy trip to the bohemian surf village of Sayulita — Punta de Mita is emerging as a popular honeymoon locale for LGBTQ couples.

That's in part because the Punta de Mita’s W — a brand already popular among queer travelers — has a marketing director and a W insider guide who are both gay. Together, they speak from experience on what the area offers for LGBTQ travelers. But what the W offers here is an experience that feels intricately tied to the village Miguel’s family grew up in. Located on Mexico’s Riviera Nayarit, the W pays homage to the profound cultural history of the Indigenous Huichol peoples. As soon as you walk into the lobby, an incredibly vibrant walkway created from more than 700,000 blue mosaic tiles leads you down endless steps, bisecting a bar and eatery, continuing outdoors, then above the pool and seemingly straight to the ocean — a clear shot from the lobby.

From June 27 through June 30, 2019, the Marina Fornatur in San Blas will host the 59th San Blas International Sport Fishing Tournament.

With a registration fee of 25,000 pesos per boat, and prizes that far exceed that amount - including fishing equipment, boat motors, cash prizes, and a raffle for a late-model car - this tournament is considered the best of its kind on the Mexican Pacific.

Organized by the Tepic Sport Fishing Club, the San Blas International Sport Fishing Tournament features competitions in three categories: sailfish, marlin and dorado.

Every year, the top winner in each category is entered into the "Hall of Fame." This year they'll be welcoming anglers from Nayarit, Jalisco, Sinaloa, Guanajuato and Veracruz among other states, as well as sportsmen from the U.S. and Canada.

The Historic Port of San Blas is teeming with fish that more than meet the requirements for this competition as well as the ideal infrastructure to handle the tournament.
