Customs Line Should Be Shorter When Entering Puerto Vallarta

In recent days, a significant development has unfolded at the Puerto Vallarta International Airport, as the installation of cutting-edge autonomous immigration filters promises to revolutionize the entry process for travelers from abroad. These advanced electronic devices have already been strategically placed within the airport premises and are poised to streamline and enhance the experience of entering Mexico for tourists and visitors.

Autonomous immigration filters represent a quantum leap in border control technology, enabling passengers to swiftly and efficiently complete the verification process within a matter of seconds. Gone are the days of enduring long queues and extended wait times to interact with government officials for entry into the country.

The introduction of these autonomous immigration filters heralds a pivotal moment for Puerto Vallarta as it seeks to elevate its status as a premier tourist destination. The deployment of this technology is set to not only enhance the overall visitor experience but also bolster the airport’s reputation and image on the global stage.

The introduction of these autonomous immigration filters heralds a pivotal moment for Puerto Vallarta as it seeks to elevate its status as a premier tourist destination. The deployment of this technology is set to not only enhance the overall visitor experience but also bolster the airport’s reputation and image on the global stage.

Beyond the convenience factor, these state-of-the-art filters also contribute significantly to bolstering airport security. Equipped with advanced verification systems, they are adept at detecting potential fraudulent activities or document falsifications, thus ensuring a safer and more reliable entry process. Centralized monitoring of the filters’ operation will be carried out via a central computer situated adjacent to the filter lines. Notably, Puerto Vallarta International Airport joins the ranks of just three airports in the country, including Cancún and Mexico City, where these autonomous immigration filters have been introduced, with oversight from the National Immigration Institute.

The installation of these autonomous immigration filters is part of a broader endeavor by federal and airport authorities to modernize and streamline entry processes into Mexico. The timing of this implementation couldn’t be more fortuitous, considering the current emphasis on security and efficiency for travelers. With this innovative technology in place, Puerto Vallarta stands as a forward-looking tourist destination, offering a more comfortable and secure travel experience while potentially eradicating the arduous wait times that foreign visitors have endured upon arrival in the region.

To avail themselves of this technology, travelers must meet certain requirements:

  1. Possess an electronic passport.
  2. Hold a passport with a validity exceeding 180 days.
  3. Hail from one of the following nationalities: Mexican, Canadian, American, British, French, Italian, Spanish, German, Japanese, Norwegian, Swedish, Swiss, Hungarian, Finnish, Dutch, Austrian, Icelandic, Czech, Belgian, Romanian, or South Korean.
  4. Be 18 years of age or older, as minors are not eligible for using this technology.
  5. Declare the purpose of entering Mexico as tourism.

The following steps outline the process for using these autonomous immigration filters:

  1. Locate the designated bus line and have your passport at the ready.
  2. Open your passport to the page containing your photograph and personal information.
  3. Scan your passport on the reader.
  4. Position yourself within the designated yellow circle, where facial recognition will take place.
  5. A series of validations will be conducted on your biographical, biometric, and flight information.
  6. Upon successful completion of the process, a receipt bearing a QR code and a digital stamp will be issued.
  7. Scan the QR code on the receipt and download the Multiple Digital Immigration Form from the website, which can be completed at your convenience before departing Mexico.

This momentous development marks Puerto Vallarta’s commitment to delivering a world-class experience to its visitors while reinforcing its standing as a leading tourist destination in the region. The introduction of autonomous immigration filters is a significant stride towards enhancing efficiency, security, and overall traveler satisfaction at the Puerto Vallarta International Airport.

GREAT Hamburgers at Hamburgo PV in Versailles

I am  always on a hunt for a GREAT BURGER!  And  so far,  this  place is the BEST that we have found, in Puerto Vallarta!

HAMBURGO PV is located in the Versalles neighborhood. (Versalles actually has a growing number of restaurants’ that are super delicious!)

It’s a hidden gem!  And  tucked away with a few other restaurants down a long corridor.  So there is very little street presence. Located at Hamburgo 150A.  Upon arriving you will see a  black iron gate advertising several restaurants inside this little hidden  plaza-corridor. (And it’s basically next door to CHA, another great restaurant). You will see the Hamburgo sign, and also a sign for pizza and a German restaurant Pommes Bude.

BACK TO BURGERS! I love Picana meat and this place makes different burgers using picana meat and also skirt steak meat.  We ordered one of each and honestly can not pick a favorite. They were both juicy and delicious!  Also I wanted to try a pulled turkey burger/sandwich. (12-hour white wine marinated-grilled turkey!) Again  very juicy, savory  and  very delicious!  Some diner-style French fries  are available.  $40 pesos  for  large order and  $20 pesos for small order. All of the burgers  run from $120 pesos – $170 pesos! They have a Hawaiana burger, Falafel, pulled pork and many  more. So it is very affordable  and  BYOB, if you want an adult beverage!

I wanted a little something sweet after our HUGE  meal!  We tried the Chocolate empanada, served hot,  with a scoop of homemade gelato. It was awesome!

 

You can scan the QR code below, it will take you to their whatsapp.  From there, you can access the current menu at the top house/home icon. They are always trying new things and sometimes have specials. They also offer things like  wings and tacos, both regular and deep fried! They have much more than what is listed on menu below!

The cook/chef  (Rodrigo) is also  the  waiter.

Only  4, 4 top tables.  But  they also  do  to-go orders.

At the time of this writing,  I think they are now open 7 days a week  2pm-10pm.

Puerto Vallarta’s Jorullo Point Glass Floor Observation Deck

WOW!  How  cool is this???

from PuertoVallarta.net & Debate.com.mx

Jorullo Point viewpoint is inaugurated, which can be accessed via a suspension bridge in Puerto Vallarta, providing views of the mountains, the Cuale River, and the ocean.

This viewpoint is part of the Canopy El Jorullo and Ejido ecotourism complex.  Jorullo Viewpoint is located in the Canopy Ecotourism complex, situated in the Ejido El Jorullo, about 16 miles southeast of Puerto Vallarta. The focal point of this expansion is an innovative suspension bridge, 200 meters long and 100 meters high, designed for RZR vehicles and pedestrians, offering a unique and exhilarating experience at an altitude of 420 meters above sea level.

(Facebook photos Enrique Alfaro)

Upon crossing this bridge, visitors are welcomed by a relaxation area with a drink bar, a panoramic swing, and a glass-floored viewpoint, offering spectacular views of the Cuale Sierra, the Cuale River, and the sea.

Canopy El Jorullo aims to diversify the range of experiences in this sustainable ecotourism complex. In addition to thrilling attractions, the site features a hiking trail leading to the new point, accessible after a two-and-a-half-hour walk from the restaurant at the park’s entrance. (TWO AND A HALF HOURS???)

Construction of “El Jorullo Point” took a year and a half and is now open to the public through local tour operators and general access at the park entrance.

Buy or RENT Your Next Car in Puerto Vallarta with Eric Flores

Hola Amigos!

My husband and I moved to Puerto Vallarta  from Chicago  earlier this year.

While  Uber and Taxi’s  are plentiful and affordable, we decided  we wanted to buy a car  for longer  days trips.

We did not want to buy a new  car, although they are more affordable in Mexico than the US.  So we started our  search for a  used car. WOW!  What an eye-opener.  Used cars have a  small inventory in Puerto Vallarta.  People do not trade in cars every few years like in the US.  And  used cars can command  a  heftier price than that same car  in the US.

So our search begins.  Our Spanish is limited (we’re working on it),  but we kind of get by. Let me tell you, it is in fact difficult dealing with someone in this situation who ONLY speaks Spanish. Over the course of 2 weeks, looked at maybe 4-5  cars, and it was a bit uncomfortable and intimidating,  to buy a car in a foreign land.  We found several  “car flippers”  here.  Not the original owner. And sometimes the documents and  title were….suspicious.

If you are looking for a reliable used car in Puerto Vallarta, I have found the  fastest, safest and most reliable option!!

One day on Facebook,  Eric  Flores  of  Easy Car PV  found me and offered his services.  For a small 7 % fee of the purchase price,  he would help me find the car that we wanted in our budget, he would  “kick the tires”, take it for a ride, shoot video, review all of the seller’s  documents and tax records,  search accident records, and if we decided to move forward there would be  a full inspection of the car,  he was to  transport the car if it was not in Puerto Vallarta,  have the car detailed and delivered it to our door! This sounded great!  So met with Eric and signed a contract to work with him for 30 days.

Within 1 week he found us a couple possibilities in Guadalajara, which is about 4 hours away. (Cars in Guadalajara tend to be in better condition  and sometimes a little cheaper). He went to Guadalajara but neither car panned out. 1 was sold and the other did not live up to expectations.

Week 2,  he  found 2 more cars, again in Guadalajara. He made the journey  and  called me and said he thought he had the car for us! It was a Renault Duster with low miles  and  well cared for. We moved forward  and  in a few days the car was detailed and Eric even went to Unirse, Secretary of Administration  on our behalf and had the registration, title and plates moved to our name  and  he delivered the car to our door!

WELL WORTH THE 7% commission!   DO NOT try to buy a car on your own here in Mexico!

Eric loves the thrill of the search and the find!  “Tell us which car you’re looking for, and we’ll help you find the most suitable options for you, always considering your budget and the best quality of the vehicle you’ll be driving looking into the 120 security points and all the structure of the car. We say: ¡USED CAR, LIKE NEW! Furthermore, we make sure that the car comes with all the necessary documents and is in a perfect legal situation in México. By acquiring your car with us, you’ll have confidence in the purchasing process and when you’re driving with your family and friends on board.”

 

AND NOW THEY ARE OFFERING  CAR RENTAL SERVICES!

 

“We are starting our fleet with two beautiful brand new medium SUVs, KIA SELTOS 2023 and 2024 and because we always want to make a difference in the market and be the best option in the bay, car insurance is included in our rental fees! Forget about hidden charges and pay what is fair.
Send us your dates request (from short to mid-term length) to + 52 322 355 07 67 so we can provide you with a quote!”

Surf Lesson’s and Hike’s in Sayulita with Adan Carano

How would you like to SURF???

and  do the Hula Hoop?!

Visual artist ADAN CARANO  can often be seen doing his amazing hula hoop show from Sayulita to  Puerto Vallarta.

Based in Sayulita,  Adan gives  surf lessons!   1 hr and  30 minute class costs $1600  pesos. (About  $90  US  at the time of this writing).  Why not get a group of  gays  together for a  day  in beautiful Sayulita  and get in some surf time too?

A little over an hours drive, Sayulita is  known for beaches with strong surf, like the central Sayulita Beach. To the west, Los Muertos Beach is more sheltered, sandwiched between protective rocks. Galleries in Sayulita sell artworks by Huichol indigenous people.

Sayulita also offers  great street food,  street entertainers, spas, street bars, tattoo artists, beach restaurants and shops everywhere in the midst of a natural setting between mountains and sea… something for everybody.

 

 

He can take you or your group  on  a 3 hour hike  to Cerro del Mono (Monkey Mountain) ?

360 degree views from on top of the mountain!  3 hours / $1200  pesos

What about a BLACK SAND BEACH??

Patzcuaro is a gorgeous beach just southwest of Sayulita.

Playa Patzcuarito is one of Sayulita, Mexico’s most beautiful hidden gems, and is one of the most unique beaches in the Riviera Nayarit region. The beach doesn’t see a ton of visitors, as it lacks any kind of good road access and lies a bit out of the way for most people. That being said Playa Patzcuarito is surprisingly easy to get to and takes only 25-30 minutes on foot through the jungle. It is located north of the larger Playa Patzcuaro and south of Playa Carricitos, which are both also well worth a visit but require a bit more effort to get to. 3  hours / $400  pesos.

Get all the  details  on  his  WhatApp  page 5213221383682

Sayulita is an awesome day trip  and  Adan can be  your gay guide!

Feel free to make a  request,  and  he will create  a  customized  package  for you!

Fundraiser for Omar Aguilar Medina

In Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, there’s a young man who loves to dance. His name is Omar. While he’s best known in our small community as a passionate dancer, many of us know him to be a charming, great humored and sometimes silly fella who loves to make you laugh. As a young entrepreneur following his dreams against all odds, he is really an inspiration to all of us that, “life is about doing what you love, whether it brings a feast or a famine, follow your heart and make your dreams come true.”
We don’t have much information yet, but what we know is that he collapsed in a seizure and when he awoke he didn’t know who anyone was.  He had been sick for over  10 days. This is all the info we have right now since it occurred recently on March 13th at 8:30am.
As of March 18th, he is still in the hospital  but doing slightly better.
We’re asking for help because as any entrepreneur knows (Especially Mexican ones) there are not many safety nets in place to hold our lives together when emergencies come. We need to see him out of the Regional Hospital and into the IMSS for better care. His mom had to fly here from Carmen City, put her work on hold and take care of her baby. Also, he still has rent to pay, and his business, which he has worked so hard to build with his Colleagues, will need some support as well so he has something to come back to when he is better.

 

Of course in every GoFundMe summary we always write, “There’s no better person etc.” but this is different. If you have ever met him; you’ve felt his hugs, if you’ve ever gone out with him; he’s made you laugh, if you’ve ever been to his show; he’s made you shiver, and if you ever needed a friend; he was there with bells on.
Maybe he won’t need much. Maybe by the time I’m done writing this, he is on his way to recovery. Let’s hope. One thing is for sure, he wouldn’t take charity in the worst of times – trust me I’ve tried; he’s too proud. So if there’s anything he doesn’t need I know he will redirect it to someone who does.
Hug someone you love, and pray for Omar.

INTERNATIONAL BEAR FESTIVAL 2023 Bearadise

Some visitors to Puerto Vallarta experience  life-changing moments when the energy of this Mexican Pacific coast city gets deep into their hearts.  Some people look toward retirement in Vallarta.  Some people buy vacation rental property.  Some people study Vallarta and think about how they can contribute to one of the fastest growing destinations in Mexico.  Enter: Mistr Bear, the Montreal-based fashion, gear, pet play boutique.

 

“Every year brings us an opportunity to grow our bear network and also welcome new products and services to the business community,” explains Christian Serrano, Bearadise Producer.  “This year our good friends at Mistr Bear join the growling good times at our International Bear Festival 2023.

MistrBear sponsors the Bears in Heat Pool Party at The Pool Club at Casa Cupula and the Beary Horny nighttime party at STUDS Bear Bar on Friday, February 3rd.

In addition to sponsoring two of the IBF’s events, Mistr Bear, will also style the sexy Go-Go’s at selected events during the week.

Mistr Bear shares a special connection with Puerto Vallarta.  “I was enjoying a beautiful afternoon on vacation in Puerto Vallarta in April of 2017,”  explains  Christian Boudreau, one of the proprietors of Mistr Bear. “I began to notice some of our clothing had discolored and lost its shape. I remembered one of the rules of business: What is the customer’s problem and how can I solve it?  After a few margaritas, we started jotting down ideas.  It was not long before these random ideas paved the way to opening the first Mistr Bear boutique in May of 2018 in Montreal,” explains Boudreau. “So the Mistr Bear idea was born in Puerto Vallarta. It just makes sense we present ourselves in Mexico for the first time in this special place.”

Mistr Bear commits to their belief that all bodies are perfect despite our differences, and that no one should judge your physical appearance. No matter the size or gender, we are each an example of a standard of beauty.  It was with this mission that Mistr Bear proceeded to create merchandise in association with Canadian craftsmen that includes fashion and a fetish line for all sizes and genders.

“We could not be more excited to help grow not only the bear community in Puerto Vallarta, but to contribute to the all-inclusive, body-positive, welcoming spirit for residents and visitors alike,” continues Boudreau.  “See you soon in Puerto Vallarta!”

Nahuales – A Mystical Night – Sundays!

ESCAPE to a private island for this sexy show!

It has been getting  RAVE  REVIEWS!

Your ticket includes access to a boat ride (approximately 45 minutes), an open bar, and food, local Mexican performers on a private beach.  $120  and  EVERYONE agrees  it is well worth the experience!

Inspired by a Mexican legend from the Mesoamerican folk region, a nagual (pronounced na’wal), is a human who has the power to shapeshift into their animal counterpart. The legend is tied to the belief that one can access power and spiritual insight by connecting with their animal counterpart within.

We’ve taken that legend and created Nahuales, a Mystical Night – a show where our performers will find their animal counterparts, amazing you with their acrobatic talents.

This spectacular live performance features professional dancers and circus-like performances including a live fire dance. You’ll be amazed at the acrobatic performances held on a stage at a private beach.

The show is approximately 40 minutes long, and afterwards you’ll be able to meet and talk with each performer. A DJ will then take over and you can dance on the party stage and enjoy the evening on the secluded private beach. There are special guests planned for some shows, which may extend showtime.

Your ticket includes access to a boat ride (approximately 45 minutes), an open bar, and food prepared by authentic local Mexican residents of the island that you will visit.

When you arrive, the boat will dock at a pier, and once on the beach you can dance to music played by a local DJ, and watch the sunset while you enjoy an open bar, fruits, snacks and select one of three different types of Ceviches (including a vegetarian option).

After the sunsets the real show begins!

Your ticket to the show also supports local Mexican talent, since the show is produced and performed by all locals. Many of whom you may recognize from other local performances.
