Enjoy a great variety of fun things to do this weekend in Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit. Who said it was the "slow" season here?

Jorge Acosta's Sunset Serenade at Daiquiri Dick's

Why not start your weekend off at Daiquiri Dick's with a Sunset Serenade on Friday evening, July 27, 2012.

Jorge Acosta, Vallarta's favorite strolling musician, will be performing a special show at 8:00 pm.

Tickets are 150 pesos and are being sold in advance at the restaurant or you may buy them at the door. Dinner reservations are suggested. The sunset is free.

Market Co-op at Paradise Community Center

As most of you know, the Old Town Farmer's Market moved to the Emiliano Zapata School providing much needed space for them. They have closed for the summer but many of the vendors have joined us at the Paradise Community Center.

Come hungry to the Farmer's Market co-op every Saturday morning at 9:00 until 11:30 for a great variety of treats to eat and drink. Vendors offer freshly baked breads, tamales, pies and pastry, coffee, produce and even asian dishes.

Visit the PuRR booth where they always have adorable kitties for adoption, shop the artisan booths for jewelry, ceramics, purses and art objects.

It's always fun and full of treasures.

The Saturday Market Co-op is at the Paradise Community Center, 127 Pulpito, Old Town.
