A delicious brunch is offered as part of every tour.

9-1-1 Calendar Launch Party - Thursday

Puerto Vallarta firefighters, lifeguards and police will set off some sparks Thursday night, November 9th at Paco’s Ranch (Ignacio L. Vallarta 237) in Colonia Emiliano Zapata.

Festivities begin at 7:00 pm (6:30 pm for sponsors) and will include 2-for-1 drinks, live entertainment by Amy Armstrong, raffle, mini-auction and, of course, appearances by our calendar models.

The sizzlin' 14-month calendar, featuring U.S., Canadian and Mexico holidays, will be on sale for just 250 pesos at the November 9th kick-off as well as at Saturday’s Farmers Market at Lazaro Cardenas Park.

This year’s donation will be earmarked for the purchase of state-of-the-art digital radios for the first-responders. Critical response time for 9-1-1 emergency calls will reduce greatly with this equipment. Organizers, Tim Longpre and Gary Green, anticipate raising over 400,000 pesos.
