No place quite marries art, religion, and fiesta like Mexico. During Semana Santa,
indigenous, colonial, and modern traditions meld into an explosion of color and
artisanal flair. Puerto Vallarta’s whitewashed colonial streets are festooned with
cascarones (colored egg shells filled with confetti), fireworks explode over jungle
backed Playa dos Muertos and reverence and revelry finds expression in a myriad of
live concerts, theatre productions, and sombre religious processions.
When you’ve had your fill of fiestas and Passion Play reenactments, retreat to Casa
Dos Cisnes and enjoy the silence. Five minutes by car from Puerto Vallarta, but far
from the maddening crowds, Casa Dos Cisnes is a haven of tranquility and
soul-satisfying luxury in the hills of the Sierra Madre. Exquisite living spaces
awash with modern decorative details and traditional colonial features—custom glazed
talavera sinks, carved statuary, bovedas, furniture hecho a mano, weeping walls, and
fountains—combine with state-of-the-art amenities and unparalleled views of the
Pacific’s fabled coastline to create the perfect antidote to your average cookie
cutter vacation rental.
SPRING FESTIVAL FEVER IN VALLARTA
With temperatures hovering near perfect and a jam-packed calendar of events, it’s no
surprise that Puerto Vallarta reaches critical mass during April and May when hotel
accommodation is overpriced and oversubscribed.
March 29-April 5. Medieval hooded figures parading slowly behind religious effigies,
accompanied by thudding drums and wailing trumpets, Holy Week is an extraordinary
experience and one of Mexico’s largest festivals.
