The sound of 1,500 Harley-Davidson engines will fill the air in Puerto Vallarta between March 12 – 15 with the Harley Davidson Rally XVI. An estimated 3,000 riders from Mexico, Canada, and the United States are expected to bring their Harley’s and $7.5 million pesos to the local economy.
The event begins in Guadalajara and through Tequila with the finale taking place in Puerto Vallarta.
“This is a spectacular event with the arrival of 1,500 Harleys in the city in the coming days,” says Convention and Visitors Bureau director, Miguel Andrés Hernández.
The group will attempt to break the Guinness Record of Harley’s gathered on a boardwalk (Malecon) and will be judged by Guinness certifiers on the Malecón March 14. Certifiers will travel to Puerto Vallarta from New York to witness the event.
Public and private events will be held around the city during the rally, and a closing private event at the convention center.
Hernández says the event was organized with the city of Guadalajara to offer an attractive package for participants to bring their ride to Puerto Vallarta.
