From your arrival at the Puerto Vallarta airport to your villa at Las Olas surf safari, we’ll be traveling the Rivera Nayarit, a modern coastal resort region which includes the Ritz Carlton, Sheraton, Four Seasons hotels amongst other world-class properties. I’ve been traveling that route for more than 20 years, both alone and with friends. In all that time, I’ve never felt fearful or threatened. In fact, Mexican people have been unconditionally warm and generous.
As a precaution, we monitor relevant sources of information daily, including the US State Department and private sources regarding safety for our guests and crew. To date, there have never been warnings against travel to the region where we operate Las Olas.
Whether I’m cheering a friend on her first wave or strolling the plaza, I never reminded of the headlines up north. Instead, I’m savoring the experience that my Mexico doesn’t resemble the media’s version. My Mexico is extended families surfing and picnicking on the playa, running their shops and cafes, and doing what all small town people do around the world– enjoy life.
