Puerto Vallarta Day One

villa in Puerto Vallarta

Hola!  I arrived in Puerto Vallarta this afternoon and couldn’t wait to share a few shots of the beautiful villa that I’m staying at in Real del Mar.  After last week’s madness of moving and trying to finish up the remodel while unpacking, it was amazing how quickly I was able to relax and unwind on the plane and leave my cares behind. A last minute upgrade to First Class truly started this trip off right:

It’s amazing how a few little things, like coffee in a ‘real’ cup, a comfy seat and reading the Sunday NY Times, can make all the difference on a flight. We’re staying at the same resort as last year but in one of their different Puerto Vallarta luxury villas and it’s so beautiful here that I can’t wait to wake up tomorrow morning and start exploring.

I’m loving the round outdoor shower/changing room and the covered parking area for our golf cart which reminds me of the Flintstones.

After unpacking we drove over to our friends’ villa and went by van to Xocolatl, a fun spot with live music, drinks and wonderful food.

Tomorrow looks like it’ll be a great mix of exploring some of the Puerto Vallarta luxury villas, relaxing at the beach and finishing the day off with a Chef’s Dinner in the Villa (Here’s last year’s Chef’s Dinner).  Thanks so much for following along xx
