One of the most anticipated happenings this year in Puerto Vallarta is the traditional Vallarta Pride, where diversity is celebrated as well as the joy of being one of the friendliest cities towards the LGBT community.

The festival opens on Monday, May 16th at 8:00 pm with the International Vigil Ceremony at sunset to honor the memory of AIDS victims, in addition to strengthening the global fight against the spread of HIV; during this ceremony candles are lit and will be toured from Lazaro Cardenas Park at the Romantic Zone all the way to the Boardwalk Arches.

Vigil marks the start of two weeks full of cultural, artistic, gastronomic and entertainment activities, plus the presence of international LGBT opinion leaders such as the famous Israeli youtuber Idan Matalon who will lead the Pride Parade on Saturday May 28th along with Myriam Montemayor. Check out the full Vallarta Pride 2016 program.

In each edition of the festival, there is a major sponsor who is responsible for promoting our touristic destination and attract more visitors both domestic and international; This year, it is the turn of Alaska Airlines who has launched exciting promotions to mark the Vallarta Pride this month.

Discount fares and free travel are among the surprises that this proud sponsor brings to its users. If you want to know more about these attractive promotions, we invite you to visit the official site of the 2016 Vallarta Pride.

Remember that the main aim of this festival is to support tolerance and the great atmosphere of conviviality that has placed Puerto Vallarta as one of the kindest destinations in the world. Don’t miss it!
