Puerto Vallarta Taco Tour
Got little kids?
Fall is a great time to travel—discounted rates, fewer people and cooler weather. Bring the grandparents along!
Consider Puerto Vallarta, Mexico on the Pacific coast that besides great beaches, offers a lively culinary scene (including more than 500 taco trucks!), galleries galore, festivals and eco-tourism activities, like with sea turtles. The Puerto Vallarta Tourism Board is hosting a “Fall is Family Time” Twitter party Thursday, September 8, 2016 at 9pm ET so families can share their best tips and tricks for fall getaways, preparing kids for a beach vacation, and introducing new cultures so our kids are comfortable travelers even before they arrive.
They’re also sponsoring a six night vacation for a family of four so you can see for yourselves how special Puerto Vallarta is for families.
GET READY FOR FALL FAMILY TRAVELS
