Enjoying Paradise with Marriott Puerto Vallarta

This was my first experience in Puerto Vallarta and it was a great location to go on my first trip to Mexico. One of the biggest things that stood out to me was the insane hospitality and service I received everywhere I went. Customer service can be lacking in the USA sometimes, and this was not the case at all in Puerto Vallarta. The lovely Marriott Hotel hosted my stay and I had a wonderful experience.

For our first evening, we had an amazing chef make us some locally sourced guacamole and salsa as we watched the intense blood orange sunset from the Master clubhouse suite at the JW Marriott.

On the following day, the tour guide that we had was an extremely well informed and friendly man, and I was able to ask him practically anything regarding local and national cultural issues, geography, history, etc. and I got so much more out of my trip than I would have without having a local to show us around. I had a tremendous interest in the diversity and complexity of the Indigenous, Mestizo, and European groups in Mexico and how they have fused over the centuries. It was a topic that infinitely fascinated me.

Scenic Beachfront boardwalks and restaurants are prevalent throughout the city.

We took scenic boat rides with Vallarta Adventures to remote beaches and villages that are only accessible by boat. It was my first time witnessing hundreds of tiny crabs ashore on the small sandy beach.

We ended our stay here at the beautiful Marriott herb garden and it was an enchanting experience to have a taste of their own tequila made on sight. It was the best tequila I ever tasted and is only sold at the Marriott there. We had a multi-course made from the head chef at the Marriott, and it was again beyond impressive and an exceptionally enjoyable meal to taste some of the Mexican ingredients with such vivid purity and taste that I was blown away at the flavor. It was a wonderful meal to have at sunset on our last evening there.

I just want to thank the JW Marriott of Puerto Vallarta for again hosting me and treating me so well during my stay.
