The Stories Of An Old Bridge And A Younger One

How many stories this bridge could tell? How many marks and scars show the time and the passing by? How many times we passed by, not even noticing who is standing firm under our feet? I wonder how many things it had witness and kept the secrets within.IMG_4204IMG_4263IMG_4265

A younger generation with a different experience. Still waves goodby to so many over time. Witness the passing by of life. For fun or for work we go by, taking for granted their function in our lives. People might leave but they stay firmly for the next generation to come and holding all the stories that they saw.IMG_4390IMG_4389IMG_4388

Princess at Riu Palace


Last December I went to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico for a Love Mexico convention for travel agents to learn and promote Mexico as a wedding destination and/or honeymoon place. This is my second year participating in this event. It’s amazing the amount of information that we bring back home, from brochures, bags, office materials, business cards and much more. All the meetings, the vendors,the conferences, the wonderful meals were excellent. But for me living an experience speak millions of words to my heart. Even if I want to write here about the conferences that we listened to, or mention all the vendors I met, or even if I want to tell you that Mexico have amazing facilities to celebrate weddings it’s hard for me to point out all of them with detail information.

I brought home lots of information, yesterday I filed all out and it’s going to be there if I need it at any moment. There is something that I can not file in a cabinet, but I can share with you. Those were the experiences that I lived over there. The last two days of my Mexico experience, after the conferences were over some of us have the blessing to stay in one of the hotels in Puerto Vallarta to experience Mexico hospitality. Well, I was able to be a princess with Riu for two days. At least I felt like that, first I stayed at Riu Palace in Nueva Vallarta and second they treated us super nicely.

The first night we got there we were able to enjoy the resort at our leisure. I left everything in my room and went to eat at the buffet. There were so many options, so many flavors, colors , smells, desserts, it was really hard to decide what to eat. After my food coma I walk a little bit before going to bed.

I woke up early in the morning, went to the buffet again. We had a full day of activities with the Riu people but we didn’t have any idea how much fun was going to be. We visited the other two Riu’s property in Nuevo Vallarta. Each Riu have its own good characteristics and each accommodate different budgets without loosing luxury and comfort.

Riu Jalisco

Very nice property, all inclusive and friendly for your pocket. Loved the Christmas decoration!

Oh Riu Vallarta! This place is amazing! I don’t know if the day I was there was so perfect that I had that impression, but I just can say good things about this place. This property will ask a little bit more of your money that Riu Jalisco, but will have other amenities that will compensate that.

Before  continuing about this property I will make a pause to tell you something that apply for the three properties, actually it applies to all Riu properties in general.

All Riu’s properties have Scuba Caribe for all your beach sport activities. They offer kayak, wind surfing, surfing boards and more all include with your stay at the hotel. We had the opportunity to enjoy some of this great and fun activities thanks to the Scuba Caribe manager, Nicole Merz. She spoil us really good. After letting us play in the water during the day, in the afternoon she also offer us a massage at Renova Spa which she also manage. You always will find this two companies at every Riu’s property. There is nothing better than to have fun in the sun and later relax at the spa, I guarantee you they will treat you like royalty.

After an amazing day of fun and relaxation with a magnificent massage, Riu management at the Riu Palace (where I stayed) prepared an exquisite dinner for us at the beach over the sunset. Imagine the great reception for a wedding that you can have here! Let me show you so you can have an idea of what it could be.


If you want to know more about Puerto Vallarta, my experience at Riu or anything about travel just let me know.

Until then,

A moment in time

Solitude should not be problem, but a moment to meditate and learn. It should be a time to set new goals, to appreciate the beauty of life.  We should see it as a moment to regain strength, to refocus. Solitude should be a beautiful moment, but just that, a moment.
