Erika surprised me on my 40th birthday by arranging a Trip to Valle de Guadalupe. This little slice of heaven is an hour and a half south of the border from here in San Diego. In the video I share some of the highlights of this trip and also give shout-outs to Trans Turismo, the transportation company that took us on our tour of Valle de Guadalupe’s beautiful vineyards.

Here’s a review of the accommodations and facilities at the Marival Distinct Luxury Residences. Marival Distinct is an all-inclusive resort at Nuevo Vallarta, which is around 20 or 30 minutes north of Puerto Vallarta. Puerto Vallarta is a very popular holiday destination in Mexico, and one which we visit regularly, since it’s only about a two-and-a-half-hour flight from San Diego.

We stayed at the Marival Distinct Luxury Residences. As shown in the video the rooms are quite nice – everything you can expect from resort accommodation and then some. Our rooms featured 2 bedrooms, a spacious living room plus kitchen & dining areas. I include some footage of us touring the rooms so you can get a better feel of the layout. Some of the amenities included are TV’s in every room, AC units in each room and a washer-dryer. We also loved the large balcony with ocean views – even though we had to keep the door closed in the evenings to keep the mosquitoes out.

If you are looking for an excellent all-inclusive resort in Nuevo Vallarta you should give Marival Distinct a shot. The resort has great food and great entertainment. They exceeded our expectations, including the staff that really went above and beyond that made our vacation enjoyable.
