Best July 4th Getaway Destinations in Mexico

Starfish on beach during July fourthIt’s not too late to pack your bags for a spontaneous July 4th getaway in Mexico. Our neighbor to the south is home to over 1 million American expatriates. There are plenty of events catering to these residents, not to mention summer travelers, if you know where to look! Sea Side Reservations can score last-minute accommodations for you, without any of the game-playing you get with traditional travel booking sites. We give you the names of the resorts, villas, or condo developments and the address before you book. A property manager is accessible to you 24/7 during your stay to provide concierge assistance and guarantee your satisfaction.

Our goal is to find you the perfect accommodation near the best 4th of July parties and activities in Mexico, so you can enjoy a truly worry-free getaway.

Rocky Point

Rocky Point’s close proximity to Phoenix, Tucson, Imperial Valley, El Centro, and Yuma makes it an ideal getaway for Americans. You can purchase fireworks legally in Mexico and set them off at the public beaches. The biggest local event is Sonoran Resorts’ Las Vegas Charity Night. A $35 ticket gets you access to a tasty buffet; $300 in charity chips for blackjack, poker, and roulette; and a donation to underprivileged families in Rocky Point. Most other resorts in the area provide barbeque grills, so you can have a traditional July 4th cookout with hotdogs and hamburgers.

Your Rocky Point concierge from Sea Side Reservations can arrange to have your fridge stocked with all the necessities upon your arrival if you don’t want to waste precious vacation time in the local supermarkets. You can expect live music and DJs entertaining crowds in popular nightlife spots like El Malecon, Elixir Bar, Tekila Bar, and Wrecked at the Reef. Banditos hosts an annual music festival featuring rock, funk, and reggae bands. Many Rocky Point bars also hold horseshoe, dart, and pool tournaments that cater to Americans traveling for the holiday. Swimming, parasailing, snorkeling, and jet skiing are popular this time of year when the water is at its warmest. The Old Port and The Cholla Mall will have all the souvenirs you need to take back home.

Puerto Vallarta

The Banderas Bay region, specifically Puerto Vallarta, offers a unique international vibe you won’t find everywhere in Mexico. Traditionally, American and Canadian holidays have been celebrated here to make expats feel more at home. Marina Riviera Nayarit hosts a BBQ Wing Cook-Off from 4-8 p.m. at the Marina Poolside Deli. You can bring 20 wings to cook up for prizes or a side dish to share with 5-8 people. There will be swimming and pool volleyball for the whole family, as well as live music. Nacho Daddy features a Texas-style dance hall and bilingual karaoke night with food and drinks served in a comfortable air-conditioned facility on the south side of Puerto Vallarta.

Many local restaurants offer 4th of July food and drink specials: pick up a free glass of Pancho’s white sangria to go along with your kobe beef burger at Mark’s Bar & Grill; try the renowned mac-and-cheese for 50% off at Joe Jack’s Fish Shack; or fill up 17 peso pints to quench your thirst after having the area’s best pizza at Los Muertos Brewing Company.

The area’s largest 4th of July party takes place at Daiquiri Dick’s on Los Muertos Beach, which serves up a backyard BBQ buffet “with international flair” from July 1st – July 11th. For 500 pesos, you’ll get dinner, two drink tickets, live music by Sylvie and The Zippers, and a great view of the sunset. You may also try your hand at winning a sailboat excursion, private food tour, dinner and a serenade, local artwork, or resort accommodations in the silent auction. The event does sell out, so you’ll want to pick up your tickets in advance.
