On New Year's Eve, stick around for the fireworks launched from the Malecon and all around Banderas Bay.
Immediately following the fireworks, you may want to head down to Old Town Vallarta for the always popular "all night" Olas Altas New Year's Eve Street Party where the street is closed off to vehicular traffic. Wear comfortable shoes for dancing on the cobblestone street.
Keep in mind that taxis will be almost impossible to find on this night.
