Our Story:

Taylor and Sarah met in College through a mutual friend. Taylor was outgoing, loud, and funny and Sarah was quiet, reserved, and shy. 

First Date:

Sarah & Taylor’s first date was to the glow in the dark mini putt, and out for dinner to Montana’s. Taylor definitely was able to show his competitive side through mini putt! Of course he won. A few months later Taylor had asked Sarah to be his girlfriend, and fast forward 6 years later he asked Sarah to marry him. Sarah & Taylor are both beyond excited for this next journey, and they cant wait to share their special day with their family and friends. 

The Proposal:

Taylor planned a weekend away to one of Sarah’s favourite places to go which is the Village of Blue in Collingwood. That night there was a firework show in the Village of Blue where Taylor got down on one knee and asked Sarah to marry him! Of course Sarah said yes!

Puerto Vallarta Tours, Tickets & Activities

Located in Jalisco State, Puerto Vallarta is nestled on the Bahia de Banderas (Bay of Flags), the second largest bay on the American continent, and surrounded by the majestic Sierra Madre Occidental Mountains. 

The city offers 40 km of golden beaches on the Mexican Pacific and is characterized by its impressive colonial and modern buildings, deluxe hotels, luxurious yachts and sailboats, shopping malls and golf courses. These attractions have made the city a favorite among vacationers and retirees, who now call the city home. 

Jalisco is steeped in tradition, many of its cultural features have become synonymous with Mexicanness, such as mariachis, cowboys and tequila!

Activities & Sports

In Puerto Vallarta you will find more than one way of recharging your batteries, since there are hundreds of opportunities for recreation, particularly water sports such as surfing, diving, sailboat regattas, fishing, skiing and Jet Skis as well as gentle boat rides round the bay. One of the best beaches for water sports in Puerto Vallarta is in the Bahia de Banderas. 

There are several options for golf enthusiasts in Puerto Vallarta. The Marina Vallarta, the most modern hotel in the region, is about ten minutes from the airport and has a great golf course. There is also the Paradise Village Golf and the Vista Vallarta with two 18-hole golf courses, both of which were designed by Jack Nicklaus and Tom Weispok. 

For those who like strong emotions, one of the best ways of getting a rush of adrenaline is bungee jumping. Or you may want to try parachute rides

Great deep-sea and freshwater fishing are included among the many attractions at Puerto Vallarta; sailfish, dorado and red snapper fishing are some of the most popular catches. 

A great way to see the countryside, ranches, rural villages and hills surrounding Puerto Vallarta is on horseback. On Sundays, there are organized rides lasting a whole day or, if you prefer, small groups are organized to ride through the Sierra Madre mountains that last up to several days. 

Some of the best places for diving are: Quimixto, on Las Anima Beach, Yelapa, Punta Mita y los Arcos, near Mismaloya Beach, where there is a submarine reserve made up of small islands, reefs and tunnels that are great for snorkeling.

Attractions & Sights

The best way to enjoy Puerto Vallarta is to wander through Viejo Vallarta, with its traditional cobbled streets, white-walled houses, wrought-iron balconies and red tiled roofs. Plaza de Armas is the city’s main plaza where visitors can often see public concerts. 

Visit the Parroquia de Nuestra Senora de Guadalupe, with its unusual dome, a replica of the crown worn by Empress Charlotte in 1860 or admire the original murals by the artist Manuel Lepe in the Palacio Municipal. 

Walk along the Malecon with its esplanade of bronze statues and wide variety of shops with something for everyone; explore the galleries displaying contemporary Mexican art. Saucedo Theatre Building, built in 1922 in a Belle Epoque style has been converted to retail use. 

Various pre-Colombian objects were found at the Puerto Vallarta archaeological site and they are now on display at the local Cuale Museum of Archaeology. If you want to know more about the history and culture of the place, this museum is a must. The University of Guadalajara’s Coastal Center features several public attractions including the Peter Gray Art Museum and a Crocodile Farm

The Puerto Vallarta Botanical Gardens has agaves and other native plants and orchids. The Puerto Vallarta Zoological Gardens is home to 350 animals. 

There are many boat excursions available along the bays of Banderas, Yelapa, Caletas, Quimixto, Playa Animas and Marietas Islands.

Nightlife

Many hotels organize fiesta nights once a week. Or you could enjoy a performance of the famous Folkloric Ballet of the University of Guadalajara. 

For night owls, check out the many bars and nightclubs in Puerto Vallarta, offering everything from live jazz and salsa, to popular DJ mixes. Favourites include Cactus, El Faro, J.B. and Zapata for nightly pre-Hispanic and folk music.
