I love to travel and see the beauty of the world. I love to explore new places. So when a place captures me and makes me want to return time and again year after year I know it is special. Puerto Vallarta is one of those places. Puerto Vallarta is colorful and happy from the music to the food to all of the exploring and activities it offers. It can be slow or fast paced -- offering whatever you are desire. What makes my now yearly visit there all the more enjoyable is staying at Shangri La -- a paradise in itself. One thing about going a staying a feeling part of the place is being comfortable and at home there. I love staying in a condo instead of a hotel room. Having a living space, kitchen, and the ability to either cook or eat out. Shangri La is the most beautiful property in all of Puerto Vallarta. It is a guard gated community. It is 5 minutes from the airport. It has the marina on one side and the ocean on the other. It has a full restaurant and bar from 9 to 5, a fully equipped gym, and offers facials and massages. The unit I rent has three full bedrooms and baths and is decorated to match the wonderful, rich colors of Mexico. I LOVE it!!!. The owner is wonderful to deal with and it is as economical as a hotel. If going to Puerto Vallarta, I strongly recommend renting here.
