We enjoyed the staff so much that we invited them to join us for meals becoming one big family .we got to practice our Spanish and they got to practice their English. The Mexican meals were fantastic and the guacamole and salsa each night was such a treat. We asked for more fruit and vegetables, and they came up with wonderful ways to prepare them.

Once we had one meal from them, we were hooked. They were great, we would give her money for groceries and she would itemize it all and bring back any change. The house was awesome. You can’t beat the view and the staff was excellent. Thanks for everything!! Until next time. Leah Excellent Place, Great Owners, July 13, 2015 Best views in Puerto Vallarta. Go with a open mind and you cannot beat this place. There is no AIR CONDITIONING and the beds are a little rough, but you gain so much ore from the location and the views. The atmosphere is great for experiencing the city the way it should be. The cook David was the best at making every meal a treat. The owners respond quickly to questions and keep you well informed. I would definitely stay here again ! Architectural Gem, September 9, 2014 This is our second stay at "Casa Maricielo". Our family loves the villa, and its exceptional staff.

Puerto Vallarta News and Events

From Raymond Resendes' About.com Article: 

Over 2 million tourists visit Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, annually - making this resort town the second most visited destination in Mexico. Although Puerto Vallarta is best known for its beaches, it offers an extremely wide variety of other attractions. The town has a pleasant climate, great scenic beauty, world class accommodations to suit every budget, numerous quality restaurants, excellent shopping, a vibrant nightlife and many opportunities to engage in several watersports activities and sightseeing excursions. Perhaps no other destination in Mexico offers the diversity of activities that Puerto Vallarta does. Further, the town itself has the look and charm of a colonial Mexican village with its picturesque buildings and cobblestone streets. There is never a dull moment in this famous resort town. 

Birding Mexico article: A Paradise For Birders 

With more than 300 species of birds, Puerto Vallarta is called El Paraiso or Paradise. 

The most compelling feature of the area is the huge bay, the Bahia de Banderas or Bay of Flags, cut like a semicircle out of the Pacific Coast of Mexico. The coastline of the bay is relatively featureless, except for a few small inlets at the mouths of rivers, such as at Yelapa, Boca de Tomatlan, and Mismaloya. In the mouth of the bay is a small cluster of rocky islands, the Marietas or Islas Marietas where some sea birds nest in season. 

High mountains come down to the waters edge generally extending from San Blas, Nayarit to the north, and southward to the Isthmus of Tehuantepec. The Bahia de Banderas, is carved out of these mountains and the cut extends inward in a northeasterly direction as a valley, the Valle de Banderas, or Valley of Flags. The high mountains surround the edge of the valley forming an area isolated from other sea level valleys to the north and south. 

The mountainside surrounding the bay and valley are coated with vegetation distinctly different from that of the valley, namely the tropical deciduous forest. Locally, this type of terrain is called "the jungle", but is quite different from true jungle vegetation of more southern parts of the continent. 

The Rio Ameca is the major river in the valley and has had a major influence on the valley floor it comes out of the mountains to the east, through a steep-walled rocky gorge, having arisen in the vicinity of Guadalajara. A constant wash of sand occurs from out of the mountain gorge of the river. This is constantly being removed as a major construction material in the area, and after each rainy season when the river is at its peak, a new supply of sand seems to have been deposited. 

Family of the Month - The HERONS and EGRETS: family Ardeidae Las GARZAS y afines 

The birds in this family of long-necked, long-billed waders feed largely on fish, amphibians, and aquatic invertebrates. They primarily inhabit swamps, marshes, streams, wet pastures or any other similar wetland habitats. It is a family of about sixty-one species in the world of which 22 or 23 are found in North and Central America.

Join cooking classes, forums, dinners, and gastronomic events at International Gourmet Festival from November 23 to December 2 that shows Puerto Vallarta is within culinary standards that also contributes in making the destination worth visiting. For a more spiritual experience, witness traditions as pilgrimages honor the Virgin of Guadalupe from December 1 to 12.
