Why is June Pride Month?

By

We know that June is the most colorful month of the year because of all LGBT festivals around the world and for the city of Puerto Vallarta it’s an important month since it has positioned as one of the most visited destinations for the gay community and not only because of the beauty of its beaches but for the extensive list of entertainment alternatives aimed at the LGBT population in its world famous “romantic zone”, but … Why is June pride month?

Almost all the dates that we commemorate today or know as “holidays” began with a conflict and this is no exception. The story of why June is LGBT pride month has its origins in New York in the mid-20th century, specifically in a bar called Stonewall Inn, a hangout for the gay community. Being homosexual at that time was considered a crime, which is why the New York police made arrests of gays and transsexuals who frequented this establishment; However, on the morning of June 28, 1969, something different happened, for the first time a group from the LGBT community refused to be arrested. More than 150 people were involved and they were the pioneers in raising their voices demanding respect and freedom towards sexual diversity; Over time the marches became bigger and better organized until they became the festivals we know today.

We know that love has many colors and Pinnacle Resorts prides itself on its sensitivity and its strict non-discriminatory policy towards all its guests, as well as being strategically located in the heart of the romantic zone of Puerto Vallarta, just a few steps from the best beaches, galleries, bars and clubs in the city.

Celebrating pride month is celebrating diversity and love in all its forms, we invite you to celebrate with us, you can make your reservation through the web site https://pinnacleresortspv.com/reservations/, we will be very happy to welcome you. HAPPY LGBT PRIDE MONTH!

Airport Travel Tips for Your Puerto Vallarta Vacation

By

Pinnacle Resorts is so pleased to have welcomed our guests back to our Puerto Vallarta properties in the beautiful Romantic Zone location. We have a series of dedicated staff protocols in place to keep our properties sparklingly clean and sanitized for our guests so that you can enjoy a worry-free vacation, and we have been thrilled with the positive feedback about the safety and security guests feel while spending time with us.

 

If you’re ready to return to Puerto Vallarta and enjoy some sunshine and ocean breezes from our rooftop pool lounges or your own private balcony, we have a couple of tips passed on to us by our guests to make your airport travel easy.

 

  1. Check-in for your flight online. Most airlines offer an online check-in either through their website or app which allows you to scan your boarding pass to your smartphone or print a paper copy to avoid lining up at the check-in counter.

 

  1. Travel light and avoid checking luggage. Puerto Vallarta has a casual, beach vibe and with our summer weather, you can easily pack your travel wardrobe into a carry-on bag. Traveling lightly means not having to wait at the baggage carousel at arrival, so you can start your vacation sooner! Just remember to pack only travel-sized liquids and have them in a sealed plastic bag.

 

Your Pinnacle Resorts concierge can assist with private transportation arrangements to and from the Puerto Vallarta International airport direct to your luxury vacation rental, to make your travel even easier. And although you may not want to ever leave your spacious suite overlooking the ocean or the lush jungle of the Sierra Madre mountains, your concierge will also be available to assist with restaurant and activities suggestions and reservations to complete your Puerto Vallarta vacation experience.

Getting Ready to Welcome You Back!

By

Pinnacle Resorts is happy to announce that we are now accepting reservations for stays beginning July 1, 2020, and beyond. During this challenging time, as the globe has united in a common goal of good health, we have done our part to protect our community. Our properties closed on a voluntary basis in mid-March and are now part of the mandatory closure order issued by our government until the end of May 2020. During this time, we have had staff shelter at home with only essential team members – following social distancing protocol – on the properties for maintenance and security needs, and each and every Pinnacle Resorts staff member has received their full salary while staying at home.

We miss our guests and are looking forward to welcoming you back again soon. Should government guidelines remain unchanged, with businesses opening back up at the end of May, we will be spending the entire month of June focusing on sanitizing and disinfecting all private and common areas on our properties, with specific procedures that go above and beyond our already strident cleaning policies. We believe that the safety of our guests and team members comes first, above all else, so we will take that additional time before welcoming visitors back, to ensure that your stay is worry-free, healthy, and happy.

As the world reopens, we want to make it easy for our guests to return to beautiful Puerto Vallarta. For any guests that had to cut their Pinnacle Resorts stay short or cancel their stay due to world health concerns, we will be offering credits and are available to help rebook your stay in your favorite suite. We will also be offering special Summer Season Sizzlers, fantastic promotional rates to treat yourself to a luxury stay for less.

For the remainder of May, we will be working at home, but invite you to contact us via our Online Chat function or email.

We wish everyone good health, thank you for doing your part to keep the world safe and look forward to pampering you during your Pinnacle Resorts stay very soon.

THE MANY BENEFITS OF MASSAGE IN PUERTO VALLARTA

By

Going to the spa to get a massage feels like a luxury or special treat for many people, but did you know there are many scientifically proven health benefits of massage? Just some of the medical conditions for which doctors recommend massage include chronic back pain, anxiety and stress, the treatment of soft tissue injuries or delayed onset muscle soreness, sleep issues and improving high blood pressure.

But beyond medical reasons, getting a massage can enhance your Puerto Vallarta vacation in many physical and psychological ways, including reducing muscles soreness or stress from travelling, helping relieve jet lag, stimulating your lymphatic system and improving skin tone after the dehydration of air travel, and just for general relaxation to help you ease into your holiday.

SIGNATURE SIPS: THE PALOMA

When you think of famous Mexican cocktails, of course, the Margarita comes to mind. But have you been lucky enough to sample the Margarita’s cousin? We’re talking about the delicious Paloma. Tequila and grapefruit-based, the Paloma cocktail is perfectly refreshing for summer and may just become your new favorite vacation drink. Here is how to make one to enjoy on the spacious terrace of your Pinnacle Resorts luxury vacation rental in downtown Puerto Vallarta.

What You Need

¼ cup fresh grapefruit juice

1 tablespoon fresh lime juice

1 teaspoon sugar

¼ cup Tequila

¼ cup mineral water

Course salt

1 grapefruit wedge to garnish

What You Do

Gently rub the grapefruit wedge around the rim of your cocktail glass and then dip the glass in a plate of salt, for a nice salty rim. Add grapefruit juice, lime juice and sugar and stir until the sugar is fully dissolved. Mix in Tequila, ice cubes and top up with mineral water. Then garnish with your grapefruit wedge.

Or, for an easier recipe, visit the friendly staff at Signature Lounge or Sky Bar at Pinnacle Resorts, and have our expert bartenders make you a Paloma at the best Happy Hour in Puerto Vallarta, happening every evening in time for sunset.

CHOOSING AN EVENT PHOTOGRAPHER IN PUERTO VALLARTA

By

Many of our guests stay in our luxury vacation rentals in the Puerto Vallarta Romantic Zone to celebrate a wedding, anniversary or other special event.  And while we can promise that your stay at Pinnacle Resorts will be memorable, you may want to consider hiring a photographer for your event or wedding in Puerto Vallarta. Having hosted many public and charity events, our Pinnacle Resorts team has some suggestions for choosing a photographer in Puerto Vallarta for your special occasion. 

Request a full portfolio – don’t be taken in by just a handful of photographs from a website. A professional, experienced photographer should have an extensive portfolio showing many different types and styles of work. 

Talk budget – have a clear idea of what you are willing to spend on photography in Puerto Vallarta and remember, that price can often reflect quality.  

What’s your style – talk to your photographer about how you want your Puerto Vallarta wedding or event captured, be it traditional posed portraits or more spontaneous, casual images. 

Personality – During your event, the photographer will interact with your guests and it is important that he or she is professional, serious and focused on capturing and creating amazing images. 

Talk to our Pinnacle Resorts concierge staff for suggestions about photographers and other ways that we can make your special event or wedding in Puerto Vallarta even more memorable.
