The end of the world in Puerto Vallarta

Do you think NOW it is time to buy in Mexico? I thought so.

OK. No more excuses. The world did not “end” on Dec. 21. Mexico has a new president, America’s elections are over, it is still a buyers market, things are re-settling, we’re seeing prices leveling out a bit, same trend as the US, the economy is picking up a bit, mortgage rates still low in the U.S. and Reversible mortgages are being hugely promoted.malecon-puerto-vallarta

I have 3 words and 5 words:

“Make an Offer” and

“What’s the Advantage of Waiting?”

Come on down to Puerto Vallarta where the weather is great, no snow to shovel, airplanes do not need to be de-iced, shorts and sandals are the dress code, and airlines are giving great deals. I posted a blog this week, inlcuding taxes, round trip from Atlanta is a little over $500.

Puerto Vallarta View from Starbucks

The Mexican Beach Bum had an opportunity to go to Starbucks for a treat. Iced Mocha with little ice is my favorite. I was waiting for a phone call to show a listing I have 2 blocks away, so Starbucks was the perfect place to wait.
Using my iphone, I took this photo. I enjoyed people watching, dog watching, even pigeon watching in the square.
The views from my seat in the outside patio of Starbucks:  the new malecon, the arches “los arcos” on the malecon, the condos on the beaches, people enjoying the beautiful day, dogs, pigeons, kids playing, different languages being spoken, lots of people in and out for coffee treats, blue skies, people on their laptops, the traffic going by, cabs buses, cars. People buying ice cream across the street and chips from the vendors in the plaza. IMG_0032

 
I remember a time recently when I was in the same area when the movie was being filmed “I Brake for Gringos” part was near the church and I followed them to this plaza….here is my amateur video of parts of the movie being filmed:

Bike Riding in Puerto Vallarta

Puerto Vallarta is a place that you can explore in so many ways: walking tours, ATV and zip line excursions, boat trips, horseback riding through the jungle and even from the sky as you parasail over the city. And cycling in Puerto Vallarta is another great way to explore the city with the added benefit of getting a little exercise.great-bike-rides-in--fb7426c2

Puerto Vallarta Romantic Zone, Olas Altas, Emiliano Zapata

Puerto Vallarta Romantic Zone, Olas Altas, Emiliano Zapata
Per The Vallarta Centro A.C. association, in conjunction with Jalisco’s Tourism Secretary,  a new, bi-weekly Fiesta Mexicana, will take place on alternating Wednesday evenings at Lázaro Cárdenas Plaza in Colonia Emiliano Zapata

This exciting district of Puerto Vallarta, is frequently known as either Olas Altas, Romantic Zone, Basilio Badillo, South Side or Old Town. These are, in fact, names of well-known streets and areas in one of Puerto Vallarta’s most happening colonias, or neighborhoods: Emiliano Zapata. And even though the name of a leading figure in Mexico’s 1910 revolution doesn’t have as much allure as some of these other unofficial monickers, we are partial to it, as it is its official name.

An entire city within a city, Emiliano Zapata comprises a 9 x 9-block grid south of the Rio Cuale, waiting to be explored. It encompasses all the areas and streets mentioned above, along with many others. From elementary schools to universities, 24/7 drugstores to hospitals, humble abodes to regrettable high-rises, Emiliano Zapata is as multifaceted as it gets. more……http://virtualvallarta.com/puertovallarta/puertovallarta/community/emilianozapata/index.shtml

Cat and Christmas Puerto Vallarta story

The Major finds peace (and cat woes) in Puerto Vallarta
Hola from Mexico. That’s right, Mexico. To be exact, we are in Puerto Vallarta and for the first time we will celebrate Christmas away from the family pile in Victoria.10148171-puerto-vallarta

More than a few of my friends at the club think I have taken leave of my senses. However I feel that I must move with the times and my wife Kitty threatened to disallow martinis if I got in the way of her shouted wishes. So here we are, accompanied by the loathsome cats Pericles and Bertram, who, I am delighted to say, hate every moment..read the story here….
