“Hola! I’m Sam!”

“I am Canadian but Puerto Vallarta has been my home for the last few years. I was in the real estate business for over 20 years in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada.”

“One sunny January day a few years back, I arrived in PV for what was supposed to be a 6-week sabbatical to continue my yoga studies, rest and recharge. Instead, I made a complete lifestyle change. I briefly returned to Canada, sold my house, gave away my belongings and moved to paradise. One of the wisest decisions I have ever made!” I completely fell in love with this town and knew I was ‘home'”

“Now I teach yoga classes and lead public and private workshops at various locations around Puerto Vallarta (locals call it PV). I am the founder of AngelYogaPV which offers by-donation yoga classes on the beach to locals 3 times a week.”

“I have always found great joy in my ability to easily connect with people from all walks of life. My positive attitude and passion for living have allowed me to network and share some amazing experiences with my guests.”

Why I Fell in Love with Puerto Vallarta

“Puerto Vallarta is one of the friendliest places I have ever experienced. Whether you find yourself in the more touristy areas or in the many and varied local communities, you can expect a very warm welcome! People are so accepting here. The place is alive! There is so much joy for life and celebration and people are always willing to lend a helping hand. Certainly, that’s a big part of why I fell in love with this town.”

What’s Unique about Puerto Vallarta

“Puerto Vallarta is a multi-sensory experience, loaded with richness, colour, culture, music, dance, beaches, mountain views, cobblestone streets and red-tiled roofs. It is quaintly charming and fabulous all at the same time.”

“The locals are proud of their home and their culture. They appreciate the beauty and uniqueness of this very special place and all that it offers.”

The reason I love being a WIXXER is that I get to share

“The absolute magic of Puerto Vallarta; experiences which are varied, rich and unique to this beautiful paradise.”

“I love for my guests to get a sense of the true flavour and diversity of all that Puerto Vallarta has to offer and I can help create truly extraordinary experiences for them. Puerto Vallarta is so much more than the beaches and the Malecon – although these are spectacular, too!”

“I am in love with Puerto Vallarta and passionate about sharing my discoveries: all my secret finds, my favourite restaurants, the best shops, quiet places… Who knows, some of my guests may too ditch their ‘real’ life back home to come and join me here in paradise!”

My TRIPWIX guests absolutely have to

“An absolute must-do when visiting PV is a walk along the Malecon, stopping to dip your toes in the ocean, then dinner and cocktails at sunset…. I can share the perfect places for this.”

“There is no shortage of wonderful things to do here – the possibilities are endless!”

I want my guests to take home real memories of their time here

“Various types of art including paintings, pottery, sculptures, dream catchers… we have so many wonderful local artists as well as art from around Mexico. And, tequila – of course!”
