From the Editor: December 19, 2023

It’s nearly Christmas, then we have year-end festivities and a new slate to begin 2024. I am so excited about how far Vallarta Mirror has come in just a few weeks.

Thanks to everyone who has written with positive and not-so-positive comments; it’s all good! We will continue to improve with local input from new writers like Georgia Darehshori and Sandra Cesca and videos from Derek Carkner from Ryan Donner and Associates. To occasionally remind us why we love her so much, we will have ‘From the Farmhouse,’ written by Renee Armand.

Enjoy Sunday mornings with our new crossword puzzle! They are different from what you are used to, as they are all based on our current week of new articles! Let us know how you did! There could be a new contest in town – Crossword Champion. Try it; you’ll see what I mean!

And lastly, I am happy to introduce the ‘Rearview Mirror,’ which recaps new articles published each week on Look for that every Friday. Subscribe for free and we will email you the Rearview Mirror.

Enjoy everything Puerto Vallarta offers and share your abundance with everyone you pass on the street – all you have to do is smile.

Sending warm holiday greetings to friends and family here in Vallarta and even warmer ones to those far away.
