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.

    WOW.Pick me, pick me! Your next winner!!! Show me the money!!! I have always wanted to go see PUERTO VALLARTA . I heard it is beautiful there. My childhood dream to see it since. It would be a dream come true and means more to me than anyone else to win. 🙁 Starving artist here desperately needs the trip to have fun and feel alive and inspired again. A life changing experience. Top of my bucket list. Dear Santa: I’ve been nice. My X-Mas wish this year is to win this contest. Thank you for the awesomeness, the contest, and generosity. 🙂
