A Sneak Peak into Our Exclusive Puerto Vallarta Experience


We recently had the opportunity to travel to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico to experience what the city has to offer in terms of leisure, food, culture, activities and accommodations. Not only did we 2015-05-14 16.55.56-1truly experience the magic and wonder that Puerto Vallarta offers to guests, but we also documented our adventures highlighting our favourite places to stay, eat, explore, shop and more which will be featured within our magazines (NICHE and atHOME) in numerous segments.

Our travelling team consisted of Shoot Producer and EIC- Tracey Drake, our photographer – Debbie Steeper, our Makeup Artist and NICHIE Fashion Editor – Sara Rose, our Stylist and NICHE Style Editor – Josie Saldat and our model for the lifestyle and fashion 2015-05-12 15.30.42shoots that took place over the five day stay – Mary Zilba.

During our trip to Mexico with Tourism Puerto Vallarta we stayed on the stunning beachfront at Garza Blanca Resort, one of the top places celebrities stay when visiting PV. Preparing for morning photo shoots was made easy with the large scale luxury suites available with extra space for our wardrobe supplied by Hudson’s Bay. Nestled between the ocean and the Sierra Madre mountains, our mornings were spent on the patio for pow-wows before embarking with our guide from Tourism Puerto Vallarta for the day.

The five days spent under the Mexican sun flew by with three photo shoots each day in magical hidden gem locations on IMG_4961Mexico. From driving off roads to the waterfalls at El Eden, the set of The Predator, sailing around Los Arcos on Canuwa Charters enjoying the magnificent views or walking downtown at the infamous Malecón boardwalk filled with artistic statues and local ambience – NICHE and atHOME experienced Puerto Vallarta in an exciting, unique and contemporary way.

We cannot wait to share our entire trip with you through the pages of atHOME Victoria and NICHE magazine, but until then VILLA1here are some photos we took along the way and sneak peaks of some of the many spectacular locations we had the pleasure of photographing.
