Mexico City by Maria O’connor

Pictures from Condesa taken December 9 2013Puerto Vallarta, Mexico – I have been a full-time resident of Puerto Vallarta for nearly twenty-five years, almost half my life! Although I work full time, I have tried to take advantage of vacation time and long weekends to try and explore other parts of this beautiful country that I call home. Puerto Vallarta is ideally located as a jumping-off point to discover other parts of Mexico. We have all major luxury bus lines at our disposal and finally, some new options for domestic flights that will not break the bank.

Mexico City is magical – one of the largest cities in the world, it is a meeting place of old and new cultures, a hub of activity, a culinary mecca and a stunning canvas upon which Mexico’s vibrant history is painted. It is extremely accessible, very safe and you will never run out of things to do. There are activities for every budget and enjoyment for every age.

I try and visit at least twice or three times a year. Continue reading

Mothers Day in Mexico

Mothers Day

This week we can look forward to Mothers Day in Puerto Vallarta on Friday 10 May and I am reminded of a past Mothers Day when I was living in a Mexican neighbourhood and my neighbour decided to organise a mariachi band to serenade his wife in celebration of Mothers Day.

How sweet – and indeed it was a wonderful thing to do, but what time does Mothers Day start?  Yes, it is midnight and right on cue the band arrived on the street and starting playing.  And in true Mexican style the neighbours all around got out of their beds and sat on their balconies for the hour and a half of wonderful mexican music.

Let us all remember and celebrate our mothers this Friday. And if you are lucky enough to be in Puerto Vallarta, I hope you also celebrate with wonderful music, food and friends.

Tourist office

  • SPECIAL OFFICE FOR FOREIGN VISITORS IN PV

    This is a highly significant move by the mayor and the police regarding tourist safety in Puerto Vallarta.

    Puerto Vallarta Opens Special Office for Foreign Visitors

    In an effort to further assist the foreign tourists who favor our destination season after season, the Puerto Vallarta municipality has opened the Oficina Municipal de Atención y Asistencia al Turista y Residente Extranjero (OAATRE), or Municipal Office to Attend and Assist Foreign Tourists and Residents. The office is conveniently located at Plaza Lázaro Cárdenas, in colonia Emiliano Zapata, and is staffed by specially trained, French- and English-speaking staff.
    Puerto Vallarta Mayor Ramón Guerrero was present at the opening ceremony, along with US and Canadian Consular Agents Kelly Trainor and Lyne Benoit, respectively. “What matters the most,” Guerrero commented, “is that we want foreign visitors to know that, when they visit Puerto Vallarta, they will have access to a support system that includes professional staff, ready and eager to ensure that their time spent here is truly spectacular.”
    The office is open 24-7. Should you need to reach the OAATRE by telephone, you can dial (322) 222-2224.

Moonrise over Mount Victoria Lookout in Wellington , New Zealand

The following statement came with the website with these magnificent images.
Our next-door-neighbour is an astro-photographer (when he isn’t working for Peter Jackson at Weta Workshop) and his short video of the full moon rising, in real time, a fortnight ago has also been posted by NASA. This has gone ‘viral’ and as a result he has been phone-interviewed by BBC, amongst others.
