Gadsden Hotel Douglas Arizona

I was with a friend last week who lost a family member, so 3 of us friends went on a 700 mile road trip to the funeral. We all live in Puerto Penasco-Rocky Point, Mexico. The services were in Douglas Arizona, then a quick visit across the border into Agua Prieta Mexico.

There was adventure at every turn on the drive there. Crazy hail storn on the freeway where many cars were pulled over waiting for it to pass. Then more rain on the drive there, then finally arrived in the early evening to the church for the service. That first evening we stayed at the Gadsden Hotel in Douglas Arizona. Had a chance to visit with the family, lots of love surrounding our friend. What a beautiful historic place to be. The owner, Florencio, took us up to our floor in the over 100 year old Otis elevator. The Tiffany glass is beautiful, and there was a wonderful grand staircase. History says that Pancho Villa was riding his horse up the staircase, and broke off a small piece of the stair with the hoof of the horse. The bar (I think Saddle and Spur) was very cute, I spent time there and the lounge in the lobby, learning new drinks from the owner, Rosa Anel. Yolanda the bartender was very sweet.

We had a very nice breakfast in the restaurant Casa Segovia, and the piano player in the lobby was awesome.

See below some photos, including the one of the copper mug I purchased from the bar, the last one with the logo!

I also went in to the little museum inside the hotel, really cool, seeing photos from the old West.
Although the trip was for  a sad occasion, we still had a good time visiting friends and family. The Mass and services were beautiful. We so much enjoyed the hotel, where the owners were very welcoming and accomodating. Excellent customer service. We plan on another trip!

Mexico Cruise Ship Home Port-Rocky Point/Puerto Penasco

There have been a few setbacks for the 1.4-billion-peso (US $93 million) cruise ship facility in Puerto Peñasco, Sonora, but they appear to have been resolved and the first cruise ship is expected to arrive in the first half of next year.

Construction of the home port, so called because it will be a departure and arrival point for cruise ships, began in early 2013 but strikes by transport workers, issues with construction materials and political and environmental pressures have created delays.

Thank you Tony Richards from Mexico News Daily in English.

Mexico: A Smart Investment Opportunity?

Mexico: A Smart Investment Opportunity?

Thinking of making an investment in Mexico? Wells Fargo strategists explain why it could be a smart investment decision.wf_invest_mexico_lg
News stories from Mexico rarely highlight the country’s robust economic growth, a burgeoning car export industry or its rising national productivity. But many observers argue that the economic story is defining Mexico’s future. Investors who 10 years ago looked beyond the headlines and found merit in the country’s economic fundamentals and enlightened fiscal policies have seen the Mexican Bolsa equity index average a 21.7 percent annual gain during the 2003–2012 decade, according to Bloomberg and calculations from Wells Fargo Advisors.

Puerto Vallarta Kids rights march

Outside my office yesterday I heard what sounded like a parade. Turns out, it was a kid’s march. Kids and adults were marching down the main street in Puerto Vallarta with signs and chanting about kids not being exploited for work. They were all in white, carrying white balloons. As I left my desk to go look, I grabbed my camera as I always do, because you just never know when a good shot comes along. I took a few photos and video taped it. It was a nice “march” and they waved, the people in our building waved, there was a guy with a professional camera looking straight at me, my friend said “Hey Robin, looks look you might be on the Puerto Vallarta news”.  You will see how funny it looked when you see the video. He really looked like he was directing his comments to people upstairs.

It was cool to see all those sweet kids walking the street, carrying their signs and getting involved. It was later in the afternoon, so they were already out of school by the way. Link to my Youtube video: http://youtu.be/FA1bwRwFCBw

Puerto Vallarta, Come to the beach

The beach is just less than 2 Mexican blocks from my office. Mexican blocks are short!  It is nice to know that at any time I can leave and be at the beach in a 5 minute walk for a $1 beer at the Sea Monkey. They have palapas on the sand, and I can have my dog there. Not dog friendly under the building though. Just outside under the bar and under the palapas. Service is great. Food is good, as appetizer types go. I had a burger there once and it was really good.

Time to buy a place in Puerto Vallarta, so search the MLS here and find your place in the sun and head  “To The Beach”!

Puerto Vallarta Olas Altas

Just walking along the street in Olas Altas in the Romantic Zone of Puerto Vallarta, off to see a condo for a client. Shot a few nice pics along the street, plus an updated photo of the new mosaic wall where the farmers market is held on Saturdays.

Also I took a short video of the mosaic wall:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PzI8AFBzM1c

Puerto Vallarta “Making” Lizards

Last week I was taking photos of a beach front home in Puerto Vallarta that I will have available for sale soon, and when I was on one floor, I saw one lizard sunning himself. Very cute. When I went to the next level of the home, I looked and saw “he” had a friend, and that “he” must be a “she”. You can tell by the photos who is who.

I found it funny that it was only a matter of minutes between her starting her sun-bathing, then by the time I walked upstairs, there is the boyfriend, ready for action. Goodness, let the girl have her tan! Maybe he is shading her from the Puerto Vallarta sun, and he is a good protector…..NOT.

Loverboy didn’t waste any time, regardless, they were both very cute!

Boy, anything can be a blog, eh??

Puerto Vallarta Chihuahuas

I was walking to view a condo for a client today, and I was on Lazaro Cardenas, just one half block to the beach (Los Muertos Beach) in Puerto Vallarta. I walked by a dress store and saw this cute group waiting for someone to take their photo. I have seen these babies before when the store was open, and with the door wide open, and even when I had my little dog with me, these well behaved chihuahuas would not step one foot outside the store.

Today they were patiently waiting for their mommy to return. They were so precious, everyone that walked by said they wanted to just cuddle them and give lots of kisses to them.

Puerto Vallarta morning coffee

Puerto Vallarta morning coffee. Extra Large. This was outside of my apartment the other day, I knew I needed to take a couple photos. This is near the river and the bridge. The other side of the bridge is Emiliano Zapata, where I had taken photos and blogged about the vegetable and meat mercados. https://mexicanbeachbum.wordpress.com/2013/03/18/puerto-vallarta-vegetable-and-meat/

This side of the bridge where these guys were, is in Caloso, where I live. Another beautiful day in PV.

AMPI Chapter Riviera Nayarita of the Puerto Vallarta Banderas Bay Region

The Puerto Vallarta area AMPI chapter called “AMPI Riviera Nayarita” held a membership meeting last week, Thursday March 21 and introduced the new Board. From left to right are:

Manuel Flores Roldán – SecretaryIMG_3470
