The Sweet Spot…

I consider Puerto Vallarta one of many “sweet spots” on the planet.


Right now, Puerto Vallarta is humming with activity. The weather is great, people are happy and having fun even when they’re working! The bridge to old downtown is coming along and soon we won’t be able to tell Hurricane Nora ripped through last August. For a small town, this one holds a lot!

Memories to Create
There is so much to do in Puerto Vallarta and for almost every kind of desire. One can hike to a waterfall in the jungle, zipline through the trees, take an ATV ride, go horseback riding, pet an iguana, go snorkeling, fishing, parasailing, golfing, boating, live theatre, live music, art galleries, dinner cruises, fireworks, shopping, swimming, eating and drinking. One can also do nothing but relax while listening to the birds and the ocean. The views never stop here; between the Sierra Madres and the Pacific Ocean, Puerto Vallarta hosts an array of beautiful flowers, birds, reptiles, trees and landscapes.

People to Meet
I think it’s enough to boast about having beautiful and enjoyable surroundings to attract visitors, but now add “friendly” to the mix. Puerto Vallarta must be one of the friendliest towns on the planet. Local Mexicanos and ex-pats both are so welcoming and supportive. The community here is fun loving, diverse and genuinely caring. Hurricane Nora’s devastation really illuminated this when everyone came out to help those most harmed and to help businesses clean up the sidewalks outside their doors.

Community to Know
There is a notable animal rescue community that has grown and made a huge difference in housing strays and reducing the proliferation of unwanted animals through free spay and neuter clinics. Lastly but no less important there is an artist community and volunteer gardening group that also contribute to keeping Puerto Vallarta beautiful and loving.

If you haven’t visited or explored Puerto Vallarta, it is time to add it to your bucket list. This is a “Sweet Spot” on the planet for sure!

Happy Holidays! ¡Felices Fiestas!

The holidays are upon us and so are visitors to Puerto Vallarta. The town is alive with visitors and locals enjoying one another. People are enjoying our town and surrounding landscape from the Sierra Madres to the Pacific coast that hug our lovely town of Puerto Vallarta.

We are in full recovery mode from Covid and Hurricane Nora. People are smiling, busy and enthusiastically embracing the holiday. Christmas is such a special time full of wonderful smells, sounds, foods, processions, festivities and people enjoying one another.

Our hearts are swelling with the rejuvenation that is happening and we are happily welcoming visitors to town and Hacienda San Angel. It feels so good to be delivering enjoyment and happiness once again. The weather is great and fun is around every corner; food tours, snorkeling, ATV jungle rides, tequila tasting, botanical gardens, beaches, ziplines, live evening music and plays just to name a few!  We are all so ready for this, right?!

Hacienda San Angel wishes everyone a wonderful holiday season and a new year full of love, laughter, good health and success in your endeavors. We remind everyone to count your blessings no matter how small!

Safe Travels to All!
