2018-03-18 Vidanta Nayarit - January, 2018

Vidanta Nayarit is Vidnata's new way to identify its property at Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico. The changes there since January, 2008 are amazing. Nine new Luxxe Towers, one Grand Bliss tower, an entertainment center, two new golf courses, a convention center and more construction - a tenth Luxxe Tower called Tower Six and The Park, or whatever the new name may be (Celebration Park?). The property is beautiful and more than we expected when we were first introduced to Vidanta in December, 2007.

Our family is very happy with their opportunity to join us when we all gather for a family vacation every other year. Truly a great time had by all!!

Stay tuned....!!

2018-02-17 Lic. Ernesto Alfonso Acosta - Fake Mexican Government Inquiry

A new theme of the Fake Mexican Government inquiry to abusive timeshare sales tactics is circulating the Internet. An Aimfair member brought to our attention a request for information about the member's timeshare and whether the member is involved in a legal action against the timeshare company.

It's a phishing exercise. The request comes from a non-Mexican owned domain. The domain expires within a year of its creation. Check the differences between the domain names....very subtle. Bottom line....don't submit the form. It would allow scammers access to your confidential information. Remember - only you can help stamp out scams - don't send information or money....!

2018-02-15 Sugar Creek Investments - Beware

A new Aimfair member brought this alleged company to our attention. Lot's of red flags. There is no company called Sugar Creek Investments paying rent at the address given on the SugarcreekInvestments website. The fax line is located a county away from the given address. There is another company called Sugar Creek Investment Management LLC that is very legitimate. Bottom line....Beware....!

2018-02-12 The Little Gate - Will it stay open?

An Aimfair member sent a letter to the President of Grupo Vidanta requesting the change in the policy of restraining leaving and re-entering Vidanta's Nuevo Vallarta property by foot. A few days ago, we were notified that someone was listening because The Little Gate was now open to foot traffic. A guard with a clipboard will take your name, room number and type of bracelet and record the time you leave and return. Wonderful progress....let's hope this is a permanent concession. Leave your comments at the bottom of the page to let us know your experience with leaving and re-entering the property.

It's a great read, and there are points we should all be aware of. Fortunately for those of us with timeshare interests issued by Vidanta, many issues discussed in the article will not affect us. Enjoy....!

2018-01-12 The Goddard Group - Design Partners Change

The Goddard Group had been working with Cirque du Soleil for a couple of years developing a suitable design for The Park in Nuevo Vallarta. Now we find that the design and theming job will be handled by another, un-named theme park consultant. It is possible the individual or group has ties to the Chinese Disney projects. The bottom line is opening of the Park will not be any time soon. So, we all have to......Stay Tuned....
