The always fun May Cultural Festival begins on May 18th, where we will be treated to free events, concerts on the Malecσn, orchestras, choirs, the Xuitla folkloric ballet, and a food and wine tasting.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - May is a beautiful month here in Vallarta. It is the month of fiestas and the atmosphere in town is fun and festive! It's starting to warm up for the summer season, but we continue to enjoy the constant cooling breezes of the area. Although we are nearing the end of the dry season, from Rivera Cuale we see the river still flowing by, water clear and cool.

We are also seeing more savvy Canadians taking advantage of their strong dollar! We have just sold our 1-bedroom model unit 401-B and wish to extend our congratulations to the new owners from Markham, Ontario.

As well, we offer a warm welcome to our friends from Lone Butte, British Columbia who just took possession and moved into their 2-bedroom + den unit! We look forward to welcoming more new owners soon!

New and Improved Penthouse Floor Plans

PH1-B: We admit that we're not superhuman, nor perfect, and for that reason we are always willing to listen to your feedback. So, by popular demand, we have redesigned one of our recently-released penthouses, PH1-B.

This new floor plan makes better use of the interior space by putting the living, dining and kitchen areas at the front of the unit where the spectacular bay view is...because after all, that is where you will spend most of your waking hours! This penthouse still offers the same amazing outdoor space and great price of $335,000 USD.

PH1-B+C: We've also gone a step further to design a floor plan that combines the remaining two penthouses, PH1-B and C, into one stupendous penthouse! Aside from all the usual luxury, views, high vaulted ceilings, and top floor exclusivity, this 2,551 square foot unit offers 2 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a TV room that can be used as a third bedroom, for only $565,000 USD!

Contact us today so we can help make one of these yours!

Rivera Cuale - Inspired and Sustainable Architecture: Part 2
Interview with Santiago Carral, KMD Architects

This month we carry on our interview with Santiago Carral, the director in charge of the Rivera Cuale project at KMD Architects, to learn about how Rivera Cuale is a sustainable development. If you missed the first part of the interview in March where we talked about the inspiration behind Rivera Cuale's architecture, click HERE to read it.

How is Rivera Cuale a sustainable project?

As an international architecture firm with projects around the globe, we are often asked by our clients to design a sustainable building; unfortunately, many of our clients backtrack on this idea once they understand that sustainability has a hefty price tag. That is why we were really excited to be able to work on a project like Rivera Cuale, where the client pushed ahead on sustainability and implemented the sustainability criteria to reduce the impact the building and its amenities have on our planet.

The festivities culminate in a grand celebration for Puerto Vallarta's anniversary on May 31st - with fireworks, of course! This year we celebrate the 93rd anniversary of being named a city and the 43rd as a municipality.

Restaurant Week will also be in full swing at the same time. This is the 7th year for this very popular event. From May 15-31st, 38 of Vallarta's most coveted restaurants will serve up spectacular 3-course dinners of appetizer, choice of entrιe and dessert at fixed prices of $189 or $299 pesos ($15 or $25 USD). This is a great deal and an opportunity to sample fare from a wealth of Vallarta's best restaurants.
