"The Greatest Legacy We Can Leave Our Children Is Happy Memories"
Puerto Vallarta is one of those destinations where my whole heart feels excitement, especially when my loved ones are with me! I was blessed to vacation last month with my three boys, my husband, my parents, and one of my son's girlfriends. My oldest recently graduated, so this was an opportunity to have our family vacation without anyone missing school, have some family time after a crazy year, and get away from reality for a full 7 nights with the ones I love the most, in one of the most beautiful destinations! For those of you that know me, Hawaii also has my heart; Puerto Vallarta reminds me a lot of Hawaii with the lush mountains, golden sand, amazing sunsets and Pacific beach waves. It's truly a paradise that is quite easy to get to, most times of the year!
We stayed at the Marival Armony in Punta de Mita, which is north of Puerto Vallarta in the state of Nayarit, yet still along the Banderas Bay, surrounded by the Sierra Madre Mountains. We were greeted with that exceptional Mexican hospitality and felt welcomed the minute we stepped out of our transfer. I love that this property offers a variety of room types, including 1, 2, 3, and even 4 bedroom suites.
Some of the highlights and important features of this resort to note:
During our stay we did a tour as a family to Las Caletas Beach Hideaway, on board a fun catamaran with Vallarta Adventures which included drinks, excellent lunch, and entertainment. Another day we had a private driver for a half day trip into Sayulita, a village about 20 minutes away known for beaches and strong surf. We enjoyed breakfast with a view of the beach and locals enjoying the surf, shopping, and some very colorful pictures of the village.
A couple things to note about Puerto Vallarta:
I could go on and on about our experience at this luxury resort, as well as the private dining experience we were spoiled with one evening, the spa, the views, and the family time. We would love to help create these memories for you!
