Business Aviation Tips and In-flight Catering for Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico is a popular getaway destination that enjoys a warm climate year-round. With rainy season starting in June, you will find that springtime is a great chance to visit in an off-peak season yet still experience the pleasant weather. This may be exactly why your passengers choose Puerto Vallarta, so let’s look at how you can make the most out of your time on the ground as crew members.

Located in the state of Jalisco, Puerto Vallarta is located on the Pacific Coast of Mexico, on the Bay of Banderas. The local airport is Licenciado Gustavo Diaz Ordaz International Airport (PVR / MMPR). In-flight catering is available at this airport through the Air Culinaire Worldwide Network.

Boat tours, scuba diving, snorkeling and relaxing on the beach are all great ways to spend a day in Puerto Vallarta. While the beaches, and all water sports that come along with them, are a major draw for the town, if your visit is during the winter months you may be able to see humpback whales as they migrate to the warmer climates. When you are ready for a break from the water, venture over to Zona Romantica (the “Romantic Zone,” also called Old Vallarta). This is the busiest part of town with cobblestone streets lined with restaurants, shops and cafes. For fresh, local produce and food, be sure to browse Tiagnuis Cultural (the farmer’s market).

Due to the agreeable weather, festivals and celebrations of all kinds are held throughout the year. Some of them include Fiestas de Mayo, which is a series of events throughout the month; Navy Day is celebrated on June 1st annually, which is a parade of ships, tour boats and fishing boats; Charro Day, a parade of Mexican cowboys; and Independence Eve; kicked off by the mayor and celebrated with fireworks on September 15th each year.

When thinking about unique local cuisine to try, one item is nearly synonymous with Puerto Vallarta – pescado embarazado (pieces of fish on a long skewer). You will find this delicacy using different types of fish or using shrimp. Other popular local dishes are birria (meat, usually lamb or goat, in a spicy sauce), pozole (seasoned chicken or pork with popped corn) and tortas ahogadas (pork in spicy sauce sandwiches made with a local specialty bread)
