The Blazing Ball of Fire

Sunset over Banderas Bay in Puerto Vallarta.

There are great advantages to this time of year, one of them being that the sun doesn’t set until 8:30 pm. Meaning? You can fill your days with shopping on the Malecon, zip-lining a few hundred feet over the jungle canopy on one of myriad adventure excursions (our concierge will hook you up), or spend back-to-back hours snoozing in a beach hammock and still have time for a leisurely dip in one of our three pools before that great crimson ball of fire begins its dramatic descent over the Bay.

Of course, there’s no better place to witness a PV sunset than from the terrace of Hacienda San Angel Gourmet, our award-winning open-air restaurant. Chef Eduardo Michaga Lucero’s food, from seared tuna to exquisite filet mignon to sumptuous desserts, is often touted as the best in town—and not just by us! Add in the soft sea breezes and the backdrop of that tequila sunset and there’s not much room for improvement. Keeping in mind that the Hacienda will be closed in July and August, now is the time to make your reservations. And, don’t forget, we dress for dinner, so no t-shirts or flip-flops, please. Let’s show the sun some respect for its dazzling performance!
