dante-home
Gallería Dante Special 30% OFF Sale, to Celebrate 30 Years of Creation. – Yvan’s career as a painter had unconventional beginnings. At first, his artistic temperament drove him to music. From the age of 17, he traveled throughout Europe as a singer performer until his return to Montreal, many years later. But without the tradition of coffee shops & bars where one can sing, as in Paris, Yvan couldn’t make a decent living as a singer. So he started selling watercolours, door to door and on the street. This survival activity was the beginning of an unforeseen but fertile ground for his unique imagination. Read More

jaltemba-plumeria1homeIn Bloom Plumeria (Part 1) – Plumera, also known as Frangipani and Flor de Mayo, is native to Mexico. In the Jaltemba Bay area, they bloom in the spring and their beautiful fragrant flowers range from white and yellow to pink. They are deciduous plants so they drop their leaves in the fall and winter months. If you see a Plumeria during the winter you might actually think it’s dead, because when dormant, they are nothing but a bare stick figure with shiny grey barkRead More by Allyson Williams

jaltemba-jeepHomeJ.E.E.P. Rescue Horses Hoping to Get Shelter from Sun and Rain – Earlier this week, I drove up to the Hilltop Refugio in La Peñita to see what was happening. While I was there, I decided to help muck-out the stalls and share some love with the horses. Jaltemba Equine Education Project (J.E.E.P.) founders, George and Loretta Leavitt, continue to provide the rescue horses with necessary medical care, food, water and much needed TLC – and I am happy to report that the horses (as well as the dogs and cats being fostered there) and the refugio are all looking greatRead More by David Thompson

jaltemba-ChacalaHomeDay Trip to Chacala – For a change of scenery, consider a day trip to some of the other towns and villages around this part of Jaltemba Bay. Our group of 6 friends makes a trip to Chacala every year we are here. It’s about 30 minutes north of La Peñita on the road to San Blas. Turn left on the road to Chalaca just before you get to Las Varas. It’s marked with signs, and all the taxi drivers know where it is. Read More by Brian Betts

jaltembaCompostela: The Overlooked City –  As our departure date approaches, this question presents itself… Where will the next day trip take us? Like a thunderbolt, the answer flashes from the road atlas page. There centered in bold print is the destination – Compostela, a colonial city. We’ve driven past the Nayarit city on our way to the Mexican interior, but never paused to visitRead More by John & Doreen Berg

exp-homeOpening up The South Coast of Cabo Corrientes – Driving south of Puerto Vallarta on highway 200, you quickly leave the water at Boca de Tomatlan. Boca is always busy, as it is the home to water taxis that serve as the only means of access to many destinations around the cape. Access is always a double-edged sword. For those who want to escape – literally, remote is good. For others it can be a hassleRead More

In fact, the flowers of our Aloe barbadensis are perhaps the most favored blooms in our entire collection by an assortment of insects and birds. I’m certainly no ornithologist but I believe a couple of regular visitors to our plant are a Wedge-Tailed Sabrewing Hummingbird (Campylopterus curvipennis) – I’m not making these Latin names up – and the magnificent Hooded Oriole (Icterus cucullatus).Read More by Tomy Clarkrson

While en route to the islands, we did some whale watching until the captain spotted some splashing going on. We headed that way to explore and got a chance to see these manta rays jumping.

exploring-homeFootprints in the Sand – When was the last time you made fresh footprints on a beach? The only footprints! It is a special and restorative experience. It is almost impossible to find a beach that seems like it is your own private beach. At least, one that is accessible. There is such a beach, not so far from Puerto Vallarta, in the state of Jalisco, MexicoRead More

LipstickPalm-homeLipstick Palm – This somewhat short palm is the proverbial “show stopping, eye popping, wowie-ka-zowie, looker”! Robert Lee Riffle – perhaps the most knowledgeable of all palm authorities – described them succinctly as “Exquisitely thin-trunked clustering feather palms” and in yet more glowing terms, “Never has nature been more profligate in lavishing beauty on a single plant.” From a guy who knew more about palms than any ten other botanists that some praise, huh? Read More by Tomy Clarkrson

harriet-homeSo What is The New Capital Gains Tax Issue About? – Since last year, 2013, when the President of Mexico and Congress accomplished sweeping fiscal reform, we have had a change in determination of capital gains. A mainstay of the current policy is to collect taxes from a broader base, with fewer loopholes or policies for non-payment or exemptionsRead More

jaltemba-iguanahomeIguanas, Come On Down – I was motivated to write this follow-up article after reading “The Almost Invisible Iguana” by Conrad Stenton from Midland Ontario in last week’s Jaltemba Bay Life newsletter. Having observed the iguanas close up for a few years, we have learned a few interesting facts about them. Yes, they are almost invisible to the untrained eye, but knowing their morning routine high in the canopy and aided with a pair of binoculars you can get a good viewRead More by Ken & Bea Rauch

A TEAM OF HORSES TILLING  -   A RARE SIGHT TODAY.El Molote Hot Spring – As our Mexican holiday season slowly draws to a close, the desire to be on the road again beckons. Our destination was to visit the source of El Molote hot springs, a rustic spot to enjoy an amazing soak in a natural setting without the hustle and bustle of commercial enterprises. The hot springs are located in a picturesque fertile valley where huge cabbages and other garden crops flourish. On this day, contrasting cultivation methods were at work with a team of horses pulling a cultivator and a motorized rototiller breaking sod, in the same field! Read More by John and Doreen Berg

jaltemba-semanahomeRun-up to Semana Santa – As of 8:30am Tuesday morning, April 15, the crowds were already arriving in mass and many people were up early to stake out beach space, reserving their spot in paradise for Semana Santa. Footnote for those setting their canopies at water’s edge: later this week, the tide will rise until mid-afternoon, so it might be hard to keep your towel or cooler dry all dayRead More by Rob Erickson


Day Trip to El Cora Cascades – When first arriving in the Riviera Nayarit, contentment is achieved by enjoying the sun’s warm rays and splashing in the sparkling Jaltemba Bay waters… while listening to the Zac Brown Band sing “I got my toes in the water, a_ _ in the sand. Not a worry… life is good.” After two or three months of sun and surf, it’s time to venture further afield to investigate the many nearby beautiful vistas and remarkable sitesRead More by John & Doreen Berg

abril-jaltemba-homeIn Season: Guamúchil – The warmer spring weather brings unique and exciting new produce to our local Mexican markets. If you’ve walked through La Peñita lately, you may have noticed vendors with pickup trucks or wheelbarrows filled to the brim with Guamúchil (gwa-MU-cheel). These green and pink twisted-looking pods contain a pulpy white fruit and grow on trees with the same nameRead More by Allyson Williams

They are most often stricken with either a cardiovascular incident or an accident. Cardiovascular incidents affect mainly people between the age of 50 to 69, and accidents occur more often in people between 20 to 29 years oldRead more by Intercam

Tommy-homeMexican Milkweed – Also known as Blood-flower, Butterfly Weed, Scarlet Milkweed, Tropical Milkweed, Swallow-Wort, Red Cottonweed, Indian Root or Silkweed. If you have a Mexican Milkweed growing around your home and somewhat fluently understand butterfly (and what self-respecting gardener doesn’t?) you have probably heard visiting Monarchs enthusiastically exclaim, “Yum! This baby has it all!”. Read More by Tomy Clarkrson

viewpoint-homeSome Thoughts on the Future of the US Dollar and Pricing of Mexican Properties Throughout in Mexican Pesos – Most of the time, foreign sellers of Mexican real estate do not realize that for purposes of a sale and establishment of capital gains tax, the property will be evaluated totally in Mexican national currency. Why wouldn’t this be the case? Buying in US dollars has been for the benefit of the buyer and seller. The property is Mexican and the government and all national entities will record the transaction in the peso’s value of the exchange with US Dollars on the date of the sales transactionRead more
