Holiday Crowds in Puerto Vallarta
            Holiday Crowds in Puerto Vallarta

We are fast approaching Christmas and New Years –  one of the busiest times of the year for Puerto Vallarta – and I thought I’d offer some advice on how to deal with the crowds.

Due to the population increase during the holidays in Puerto Vallarta, everything we do takes longer.

Planning ahead and taking more time to do things, with an extra side of patience is needed to get through the holidays with your sanity. Continue reading “Holiday Crowds in PV”

Low Season In Puerto Vallarta

High season and Low season are the two seasons that we experience here in Puerto Vallarta! Although in the past few years the low season is getting less drastic than it was many years ago. The low season here is a slow down of tourists visiting and this usually starts to happen after Semana Santa (Easter Break) and then begins to pick back up sometime in October.

I can remember ten years ago when low season was here everyone knew it and felt it, and many businesses would close their doors for three months which left our paradise feeling like a ghost town. Thankfully our low seasons are not that low anymore!

During the summer months we get a lot more National tourists that come to play and vacation here in our beach town. Kids are out of school and Puerto Vallarta offers a summer playground for the Nationals that live inland and want to spend time at the beach.  Continue reading “Low Season In Puerto Vallarta”

Puerto Vallarta Is the Best Vacation Spot in the Americas

Arches on the Malecon in El CentroPuerto Vallarta is regarded by many people to be the best vacation spot in all of Mexico.  It is bordered on its western side by North America’s second largest natural bay, Banderas Bay.

On its eastern border, the breathtaking Sierra Madres rise up to form a scenic backdrop to a setting that combines the most traditional elements of Mexican culture to the most opulent luxuries of resort living.

One of the first things that people notice when they come to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico is the richness of the local culture and the strong emphasis of tradition integrated into the opulence of modern luxuries. Continue reading “Puerto Vallarta Is the Best Vacation Spot in the Americas”

Puerto Vallarta Condos

Malecon IIStaying in a Puerto Vallarta condo offers a number of advantages over staying in a hotel or even an all-inclusive resort.

Condos are more private and generally removed from the busier parts of the city.  While never far from the action, they keep you far enough from the parties and crowds so you can have your dreamtime, your peace and quiet, and your good night’s sleep guaranteed.

Puerto Vallarta condos are usually located in very scenic areas Continue reading “Puerto Vallarta Condos”

Florida a Bust?

People who usually travel to Florida are being prodded to step outside their comfort zone.

This year, the oil spill disaster along with a predicted big hurricane season has made Florida a mess-in-the-making. Vacationers and travelers are already canceling plans and looking elsewhere.

Destinations with thousands of American residents, like Puerto Vallarta, suddenly seem less foreign to the typical Florida lover.

Vallarta is Less Foreign — Most People Speak English

In my experience, in any place relevant to a visitor, more than half the people speak enough English to helpfully answer a simple question. Even outside tourist areas, it’s easy to find your way. People are friendly, signs abound, and the bay or mountains are always in view.

Crime is non-existent. In any place relevant to a visitor, you’ll see white-clad cops. They are there for helping visitors like you. Also, drug wars are hundreds of miles away. As a result of these and other things, there are no criminals for you to worry about. You’re safer here than any Florida city.

Instead of putting all of Mexico into the same pot, this year Americans are looking at how good certain destinations truly are.

Puerto Vallarta is always near the top of every “best-place-to-visit” list.

Instead of putting all of Mexico into the same pot, this year Americans are looking at how good certain destinations truly are. Vallarta has it all.Nuevo Vallarta Pool at the Beach

  • Every activity except snow is here. Whatever you want to do, it’s done here.
  • People are clean and vibrant. Food, music, drink, play, relax.
  • This is a fun, friendly city located in the perfect tropical beach, jungle, and mountain setting.
  • The climate here is much better than Florida’s heavy mugginess. This time of year (off-season) it’s more humid, but still much cooler than Florida.
  • Health care is abundant. Doctors, dentists, clinics, hospitals are cheap and state-of-the-art.
  • Costs are low. Flights are cheap. Dollars buy a lot. Americans live better for less money than they can in the States.

Very often, I run into deals that will reimburse flights, give you a luxurious room for 3 nights, along with gourmet meals, liquor, tickets to events and activities, and more. But not every deal is for everybody so I try to hook up visitors to the best for their desires.

Can’t Go to Florida? Take Advantage of the Off-Season in Vallarta

This is the best time to visit Puerto Vallarta. During the off season, rooms are empty and prices are low. Natives are cutting deals.

If you like it quiet and relaxing, or you like it active and healthy, you’ll enjoy the best vacation of your life without too much foreign-ness. Or delve into native life on a pirate adventure.

How Tourists Earn $2,000 a Week Touring 5-Star Resorts

In a news article, Rick Slatton, founder of OldVallarta.com, points out there is a Mayan vacation adventure where tourists get paid just to eat and listen. “Check out resort tours that pay you hundreds in cash at the end of a gourmet meal and 90 minutes,” he says.

More travelers are getting savvy to resort tours, according to Slatton, and he claims to know the Vallarta insiders who can guide you to the most profitable ones every day. Slatton says tourists are making thousands of dollars, along with huge discounts on some of the best accommodations in the world.

“It’s not magic,” says Slatton, “top resorts want your attention for about 90 minutes and they’ll pay you for it. I know certain resorts will pay you very well.”

Slatton says that savvy travelers get handed lots of cash for attending resort previews. How does it work? He gives this example:

One morning, you and your spouse might get picked up from your hotel in a taxi by your friendly guide, and taken to a gorgeous oceanfront Puerto Vallarta resort (such as the Mayan and Velas resorts); you’ll likely be treated to an amazing breakfast buffet in an oceanview dining room; you’ll be shown some luxuriously appointed vacation suites, maybe taken to the penthouse with its panoramic ocean and jungle view and private swimming pool and jacuzzi. You’ll tour the facilities, the beach, the pools, the gardens, the spa, the gym, and you’ll be told about the varieties of recreation from surfing to golf. You’ll then be subjected to a sales pitch. If you say no enough times, eventually your 90 minutes will be up. Then you can take your cash and your free taxi ride back to your hotel, and enjoy a fabulous afternoon and evening in paradise, richer by perhaps $300.

And then you could do it again the next day. And the next. For quite a while. Tourists are known to be earning $2,000 a week touring 5-star resorts.

(Who knows, maybe you’d even find a timeshare or vacation club you’d want to buy! Some of these are tempting.)

Slatton says that there are some qualifications in order to be accepted for “resort previews,” but they vary. “Married couples with at least one credit card between them are very popular. Married couples who already own a timeshare get the best deals. At least one member of a couple should, generally speaking, be between 30 and 70 years old. Singles with a credit card can do well, also, especially gay men. You can make some money with just a debit card.”

According to Slatton, “Don’t worry, the sales folks will never swipe your card, especially since you’re never going to let it out of your grasp.” He suggests [in the news article] that if this way of making money on Mayan vacation in Puerto Vallarta sounds interesting, you should visit his website http://www.oldvallarta.com  to learn more.

How I Got Paid *Hundreds of Dollars* Just to Eat and Listen

When I first arrived in Puerto Vallarta, an airport salesman offered us a room in a 5-star hotel for free.

Money Tree

Little did I know that much more than a night was available!

Within the week we had pocketed almost a thousand dollars, eaten great meals, and explored the area simply by attending three of these “presentations”, and more was to follow.

By the end of the month, our entire extended vacation was paid for and we were way ahead.

I’m no expert on time-shares and vacation clubs and I’m certainly not a buyer. However, this deal is easy to understand. I go, I eat, I tour, I listen for about two hours… then they pay me hundreds of dollars in cash and a free cab.
