Hello fellow travelers, welcome this episode of the Puerto Vallarta Travel show. I am your host Barry Kessler and I am just so happy to be introducing you to my favorite vacation destination, and maybe even yours, Puerto Vallarta Mexico. That music you were just listening to is performed by Alberto Perez, the owner of the La Palapa Group of Restaurants. Those are La Palapa, The El Dorado Restaurant, and at night for dinner The El Dorado transforms into the ever so romantic Vista Grill with those dramatic views of the Los Muertos Pier all lit up at night in beautiful colors. Of course, at La Palapa you can enjoy that same view of the Los Muertos Pier all day long for breakfast, lunch or dinner, seated with your toes in the sand right at the water’s edge. It’s so romantic, it’s so Puerto Vallarta my friends!
This week I have a very special guest, he is Dan Dimov, and Dan is a wedding photographer and he flies around Puerto Vallarta using a Paramotor, but first, what’s happening in Puerto Vallarta this week, the 28th of December 2017.
Today, December 28 is actually Mexico’s equivalent of April Fools Day. It’s called Dia Los Santos Inocentes, and on this day, do not, I repeat, do not lend anything to anyone in Mexico. It’s said that on this day, the 28th of December, one can borrow something, and not have to return it. In fact, in the 19th century, elaborate schemes were concocted to get those who were not aware of the date to lend them things on this day. So, remember, this day folks. If successful, the victorious prankster would send a note to the lender and a gift of sweets or small toys in memory of the children killed by Herod with the note saying, “Innocent little dove who allowed yourself to be deceived, knowing that on this day, nothing should be lent.” The tradition developed into a day of pranks in general. By the way, it even includes newspapers printing false wild stories on that day. Hey, wait, don’t they do that everyday? Yet I digress. This special practice is also celebrated online as well in recent years. Ha, No Duh!
In Puerto Vallarta, there are going to be two evenings of fireworks. The Mexican people really love fireworks and in Puerto Vallarta with the 2nd Festival de Pirotecnia Luminia, a world-class fireworks show on the 30th and 31st.
There will be concerts on the Malecon beginning at 7, and both the 30th and the 31st a huge firework exhibition that will blow you away. 20 minutes each night, plus, all of the hotels, the restaurants, the local neighborhood celebrations, wow, it is incredible. Given the fact that Puerto Vallarta is going to be at peak capacity for new years eve, it’s going to be quite a couple of days. If yo aren’t in Vallarta now, and you don’t have reservations…good luck.
I have links to the events on the Malecon in the show notes for this episode of the show.
A couple of reminders, I will have my microphones at JR’s Meet and Greet at Kelly’s Pour Favor Cookhouse and Saloon, on Tuesday January 9th at 5:30 in the afternoon. Stop by and tell us what the heck you are doing in paradise. And like I said last week, if you are a local Puerto Vallarta business, please stop in and give a pitch to our audience and as I’ve said before, we always have a great time at JR’s Meet and greet, so if you are going to be in town, stop in and let’s talk. If you are too shy, that’s okay. Just stop in and say hi.
Also, I told you about my plan to set up my microphones on a table on the beach in front of Cuates y Cuetes, and inviting passersby to stop by, and talk about what they are doing in paradise. The date and time for that is Thursday January 4th at 2 PM. So, if you are in town and want to say hello, I’ll buy you a beer, I’ll even order you some chips and guacamole if you will sit down with me and tell me what you are doing in paradise. Do you have a Puerto Vallarta Story you want to share with my listeners, I would like to hear it and so would all of my listeners too, so stop by and let’s talk. Hey, I’m offering Beer and Guack guys. It doesn’t get any better than that. Just sayin’.
So remember Thursday, January 4th at 2:00 PM till 4:00 in the afternoon. Come on down and let’s talk over some guac.
Next week, I will have a show, from Puerto Vallarta. I’m not really sure what it’s going to be, but stay tuned, I promise it will be a special podcast. I’ll do my best to get it out in time, but hey, cut me some slack, I’ll be working in Paradise.
Okay let’s get to our interview.
A couple of months ago, I told you about seeing a YouTube video of this guy, gliding around Puerto Vallarta on a motorized contraption, a parachute with a big fan on the back. And this guy was celebrating the solar eclipse and the beauty of Puerto Vallarta at the same time. He was full of enthusiasm and energy. His video intrigued me, so I contacted him, and asked if he would come on the show, and he agreed. His name is Dan Dimov, Dan the Flying Man.
Now for this particular episode, you are going to have to go to my website sometime after this interview to see what he does. I have links to his videos and some great pictures of our favorite place on Earth, Puerto Vallarta and the Bahia de Banderas. Just keep that in mind as we listen to Dan.
I tried to get together with him in October, but he was in Texas, and we just missed each other by a day.
I finally tracked Dan down in Germany for this interview, so let’s go to across the pond and the English Channel to boot right now, and talk with Dan Dimov The Birdman of Puerto Vallarta….
Thank you, Dan. I have the links to his websites in the show notes of the episode and the videos we talked about. How about that groom swooping in for the big I DO? Wow!
When Dan gets back into Vallarta he will let me know, and I will let you know. Maybe you will join him on a trip around the bay. Until then check out his videos and subscribe to his YouTube channel for updates when he gets back in town.
