Hello fellow travelers, welcome this episode of the Puerto Vallarta Travel show. I am your host Barry Kessler and I am just so happy to be introducing you to my favorite vacation destination, and maybe even yours, Puerto Vallarta Mexico.

That music you were just listing to is performed by Alberto Perez, the owner of the La Palapa Group of Restaurants. Those are La Palapa, The El

La Palapa, Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

Dorado Restaurant, and at night for dinner The El Dorado transforms into the ever so romantic Vista Grill with those dramatic views of the Los Muertos Pier all lit up at night in beautiful colors. Of course, at La Palapa you can enjoy that same view of the Los Muertos Pier all day long for breakfast, lunch or dinner, seated with your toes in the sand right at the water’s edge. It’s so romantic, it’s so Puerto Vallarta my friends!

This week we have a very special guest, Lic. Felix Zarate, my friend and Mexican Attorney of Zarate and Law Associates here in Puerto Vallarta,

Lic. Felix Zarate

and we are going to be talking about immigration but not to the US or Canada, no, we are talking about immigrating to Mexico, but first let’s see what’s happening in Puerto Vallarta this week, the 15th of November, 2017.

 

It seems Craft Beer is making a splash in paradise lately with several in Puerto Vallarta Proper. We spoke with one local brewpub, Reid and Miranda at Monzon Brewing Company.

Last week I was telling you about an email I got from listener Skip. I have a long show so I just want to answer one of his questions here and it has to do with buses and transportation and it goes like this….

Your podcasts have given me a huge list of options for dining – most of them in the Zona Romantica. In Feb 2018 we are staying in Nuevo Vallarta.  It was a tradeoff for a great 3/3 oceanfront condo on Airbnb. 

On day 1, I plan to figure out the bus system from Nuevo to Walmart in PV (thanks to JR). Can a person walk to the Romantic Zone from Walmart?

I have been on the malecon and to the Cathedral but have never yet seen the Los Muertos pier. It seems that most of what I want to see and do is on Basilio Badillo or Lazaro Cardenas or near by there.

Ok, this is a good opportunity to review the bus system and getting around on buses in Vallarta and Nuevo Vallarta. …

You can get links to this information with maps and more in the shownotes at www.puertovallartatravelshow.com.

Bus Routes and Bus Fares

Thanks for the questions Skip, I have more answers to your questions coming up next week, I promise. Also, Skip was kind enough to send me his pick for one of the ten most unusual things a person should try to do while in Puerto Vallarta, and so if any of you want to pitch in your ideas, come on, and send me some. Thanks’ Skip! Skip understands what this podcast is all about. Write in you guys. It’s easy to do just go to the Contact Us tab at the top of the website and click and send me a message. Okay!

Let’s get to our guest…

We hear all the time about how Mexicans can’t wait to get out of Mexico and move north but how often do you hear about North Americans, more precisely Americans and Canadians, wanting to move, or at least become Temporary or Permanent Residents of Mexico?

According to census information, there are over one million Americans, US citizens living in Mexico, over 125,000 Canadians at least part of the year. Some of the Americans are in Mexico illegally. Imagine that!

I got an email from listener…who wanted to hear about the process of obtaining temporary residency. I told her that I would have my favorite attorney in Puerto Vallarta come on board and talk a little about what’s going on today with immigration to Mexico. So I called Lic. Felix Zarate, he is my favorite Mexican Attorney, and he agreed to come on the show and talk a little about the immigration process. He invited me to his condo in Vallarta to talk so let’s go there right now….
