e exited the airplane onto the runway and into the hot humid Mexico air that smelled like vacation. After making our way out of the airport and successfully avoiding the timeshare salesmen impersonating travel coordinators, we were on our way to Now Amber, one of Puerto Vallarta’s most luxurious resorts.
Now Amber & Secrets
With anticipation bubbling over, we arrived at the luxurious Now Amber, complete with all the amenities for a well-deserved pampering or an incredible adventure. Set on the beautiful Banderas Bay, we were able to take in sights of the Pacific Ocean, while relaxing in the privacy of our resort. With so many options ranging from relaxation to full on adventure, we almost didn’t know where to start — though we definitely started with food. Our rooms were relaxing retreats to return to during our exhilarating experience in Puerto Vallarta. Below are some of LEFAIR Magazine’s recommendations on what to do and where to stay when you take a trip to Puerto Vallarta!

The ride to Now Amber revealed to us a glimpse of the vibrancy of Puerto Vallarta. We noted the passing restaurants, strip clubs, bars, and marina. Puerto Vallarta is sometimes referred to as the San Francisco of Mexico. Nightlife and gay pride are abundant in this colorful city.
