2019-11-02 Luxxe Suite Royal One and Two Bedroom Suites in Tower Six, Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico

We have all watched Tower Six under construction for the past two years and wondered how the floor plans would be different from the traditional Luxxe layout.

Well, now we know. The unit is more compact with a smaller amount of the floor plan devoted to deck space. That said, the overall living area appears to be larger than the Grand Bliss but smaller than the Luxxe Suite Villa or Luxxe Suite.

This appears to be a step toward smaller footprints, which is taking place in the Park and Acapulco. Enjoy!

2019-08-09 Great video showing the systems being introduced at Vidanta Riviera Maya to keep Sargassum off the beach.

The Secretary of the Mexican Navy declared Sargassum would be gone in 6 weeks, and we now know the basis for his optimism.

It is good for all of us to see the integrated processes underway to solve the Sargassum issue. Stay tuned....!

2019-07-09 Jungala - Soft Opening - July 6, 2019....

Jungala is now open. Speculation was Jungala would not open for a month or so, based upon observations of work still to be finished. Looks as though that work was done quickly because the Water Park is now open. Looks very attractive and should be quite a draw. Stay tuned....

2019-06-24 Jungala - Not Open Yet - Testing Quality and Safety....

Although the original plan was to open on June 22, 2019, that did not happen in spite of the Travel Agent Central article that was posted on June 23, 2019 stating that the park was open. Likely, the authors were going off of earlier expectations, and they may have thought the park opened on time. Not a big issue. Better to be safe and high quality and late than not safe and low quality and on time. What do you think? Stay tuned....
