For the tenth year in a row, we plan to have the Mexican Feast in beautiful Puerto Vallarta at Hotel Friendly, offering an all-inclusive package at very reasonable prices. With three pools and two Jacuzzis, a beachfront with warm ocean water and many activities within the hotel, this has become a very popular site for families with children and teens. We are planning to have the baby turtle release, Pirate Cruise, and more. Translations to English will be available during services. The hotel is 10 minutes from the airport.
Puerto Vallarta is considered a safe zone in Mexico with thousands of tourists from cruise ships visiting the city every week. The hotel is close to the downtown area with plenty of transportation available and a large supermarket in front of the hotel with a currency exchange office. We have had the Feast there for eight years and thankfully haven’t had any security problems. Even though it is on a Pacific shoreline, it still has a semi-tropical climate with very few mosquitos. Temperatures can range from the 70s to the mid-90s with sometimes high humidity.
Chefs prepare excellent buffets from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. (with other food available round the clock, and no pork or shellfish will be served during our stay). There are also free drinks available, including wine, beer, tropical juices, cocktails and soft drinks. There are six restaurants within the premises, all free of charge for the hotel guests including a brand-new restaurant on the beach, a sushi shop and a brick-oven pizza and grill station, along with a coffee and ice service in the lobby. The hotel has a full-spa and gym, with one-hour Swedish massages at 30 percent discount for our group! There is also a free tennis court, a children’s play center and several shows that will be provided.

Due to meeting hall capacity, security and the agreement with the hotel, people staying outside the hotel will not be granted access to Friendly Vallarta during the Feast (including people only wanting to attend services).
