Riviera Nayarit has earned one of the most prestigious international awards in the world: the Travvy 2019/Silver in the category of “Best Honeymoon Destination.”

The Travvy Awards are considered the “Oscars” of the travel industry, which is why receiving one of these statues and attend the awards ceremony organized by travAlliancemedia is considered a top honor.

This year close to 280 awards were presented during a gala held at Gotham Hall in New York City honoring the top travel companies that offer premier experiences within the 139 categories including destinations, hotels and resorts, cruise lines, and tour operators.

What makes the #Travvys2019 stand out from other industry awards is the winners are chosen by travel agents who work with and have direct knowledge of each of the nominated categories, companies, and organizations.

Mexican low-cost airline company Volaris will begin operating a new route between the cities of Phoenix and Puerto Vallarta/Riviera Nayarit (PHX-PVR) starting on June 16, in order to expand its connectivity to the Mexican Pacific Coast area.

Last Friday, February 8th, the airline opened ticket sales for the new flight that will be permanent and will connect the the Southwest of the United States and Puerto Vallarta/Riviera Nayarit, operating two frequencies per week on Fridays and Sundays.

“The route between Phoenix and Puerto Vallarta allows Volaris to consolidate its presence in the international market, expanding its destination portfolio and positioning itself as the Mexican airline with the most flights from one of Mexico’s most important destinations,” said airline executives.

The airline expectations are high for the flight as this is a very important market not only of travelers of Mexican descent, but also of North Americans who reside in Phoenix and the surrounding areas and like to vacation in Mexico.

The flight to Phoenix is one of several recent new flight announcements to the US and Canada, including the Sun Country flight from Las Vegas and the Swoop flight that began two connections earlier this year from Hamilton and Abbotsford, Canada. For more information, visit

Puerto Vallarta Malecon 43

Puerto Vallarta was chosen as one of the best places to retire by Katie Brockman in an article she wrote named The 3 Best Places to Retire Abroad on Less Than $1,500 Per Month for investment website The Motley Fool.

Besides providing the chance to start anew and try something different, retiring abroad offers a host of other benefits including being exposed to a new culture, paying far less for healthcare, and even enjoying a lower cost of living. In fact, according to expatriate resource Expatistan, the U.S. ranks as the 17th most expensive country out of the 106 countries on the list -- and there are dozens of countries that offer a more affordable lifestyle without having to sacrifice quality of life.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico

If you're looking to retire abroad while staying relatively close to home, Mexico is a fantastic option. You'll need to do some research to make sure you choose the right city as some towns have higher crime rates than others, but one promising choice is the tropical destination of Puerto Vallarta.

The city is a popular tourist destination, so it's also very retiree-friendly with plenty of restaurants, shops, theaters, and, of course, miles of sandy beaches. While housing can be more expensive than other Mexican cities, it's still more affordable compared to many U.S. cities -- the average furnished 900-square-foot apartment in an expensive area of the city costs just under $1,000 per month, according to Expatistan. However, there are less pricey options, and if you choose to move to a less expensive part of town, you could pay just $500 per month for a furnished apartment.

You'll also find quality healthcare in Puerto Vallarta at an affordable price. Once you become a resident of Mexico, you are eligible to participate in the country's public healthcare system. You can also buy private insurance, and while costs vary widely depending on the city and hospital, it's usually more affordable than U.S. plans.
