for a happy place to retire. After we cover how to buy

The first thing come to most people's mind is, do you have to
ask? Just look around you. There many things to do in Puerto Vallarta.
But if we stop and think about the question for a few seconds we realise that it is a very good question. You make
a commitment, you invest money that could be part of your retirement savings. You will also plan on spending
many years of your life in the city. "Yes it is a very good question"!
Let's start with it is you're life: You're free to choose your lifestyle. You can choose to be active, adventures or
decide to take it slow and easy, decide it's time to stop and smell the roses, if that's your choice.
You can be busy working on the internet, painting, organizing forums for retirees, achieving your dream of

Looking for Adventures
The list is endless. Discover the hidden Mexico. Go to the Southern regions, rich in natural beauty, history and
heritage. Awaken your senses to the sights, flavours and sounds that surrounds you. Visit the world famous
Botanical Gardens, stroll to El Tuito, see the time-worn petroglyphs, enjoy a slice or two of the artisan bread
cooked in antique hill side stove and listen to you're guide telling legends of pre-historic ancestors, who learned
to grow food and build pyramids. Your sumptuous lunch is waiting for you followed by dessert and Tequila
Or learn about how this small town called San Sebastian del Oueste and the silver mine's need for salt created
the small fishing village of Puerto Vallarta.
Buried deep in the heart of the Sierra Madre Mountains, San
Sebastian's remote setting has made it one of Mexico's last remaining
secrets. While this tiny mountain enclave (elevation 4500 ft) is only a
90 minutes bus ride from Puerto Vallarta, it's still a world away from
the usual tourist haunts. Venture back to the 18th century to the
height of Pueblo Magico and silver mining industry. Take an
education walking tour through the colourful village, see the
crumbling old architecture stop in the silver shops and watch the
silver-smiths forge jewellery, sample the local food and enjoy a drink
of tequila. Visit the Spanish Baroque style church, it is truly a living

lions. After this busy day book an appointment to the spa. You'll need it.
Just For You
Rhythms of the night is unforgettable. Walk along
a torch light pat to a pyramid, nestled amongst
the towering palms. In a mystical amphitheatre
under the star- studded sky witness Mexico's
mythological past come alive. The legends will
take you back to unbelievable pre-Columbian
beliefs and religions. After the show enjoy an
intimate candle light dinner to the soft sound of
the waves gently rolling to the shore. A truly
enchanting evening unlike any you will experience
