CHRIS EVANS FILMS SERIES IN THE RIVIERA NAYARIT

CHRIS EVANS FILMS SERIES IN THE RIVIERA NAYARIT

The Riviera Nayarit is in the headlines again, thanks to a visit from Chris Evans: the famous “Captain America” from the Marvel Universe is filming a new series for a streaming platform in the destination. Evans is also the series’ executive producer.

The news that “Captain America” was in Mexico’s Pacific Treasure began circulating this Wednesday on social media. It was quickly picked up by local journalists and later confirmed by the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB).

Over the course of more than a week the production took full advantage of the destination’s beautiful natural scenery and luxurious hotel infrastructure for its shoots, which also included extras from the local community.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the series “Defending Jacob”—developed by Mark Bomback and directed by Morten Tyldum—consists of 8 episodes and is based on the homonymous novel published in 2012 by William Landay. Although there’s no date set for the premiere, it’s rumored to be by end of year.

Chris Evans has become a world-class star thanks to his role as “Captain America” in the Marvel series. The character has its own film trilogy including: “Captain America: The First Avenger” (2011), “Captain America: The Winter Soldier” (2014), and “Captain America: Civil War” (2016).

Though “Captain America” has appeared in cameos and small roles in other Marvel films, he’s one of the main characters in the Avenger movies, which feature several superheroes from the comic book universe.

Over a hundred movies, including the well-known “Beverly Hills Chihuahua,” “Limitless,” and “Elysium;” programming from top stations including Univision, Telemundo, Televisa, TV Azteca, Canal 40, BBC, The Discovery Channel, National Geographic, MTV, NHK Japan, ESPN, and Redneck Island Reality Show; plus a long list of music videos and TV commercials have been filmed in the Riviera Nayarit.

GET OFF THE BEATEN PATH IN PUERTO VALLARTA AND RIVIERA NAYARIT

Rich culture, outshining natural beauty, a popular gastronomy scene, and host of activities, means Puerto Vallarta, in the state of Jalisco, and Riviera Nayarit, in the state of Nayarit, have become two much-loved destinations. Despite their popularity, there are still many amazing offbeat spots to discover – see 6 of them here:

Puerto Vallarta:

Explore Authentic Tuito

Buried in the mountains, about 45 minutes from Puerto Vallarta, is El Tuito. Cobbled streets, yellow and orange mudbrick houses and time-worn petroglyphs give this little town immense character. Themain square is surrounded by gardens, restaurants, cafés and artisan shops.

Find Serenity in Yelapa

In a beautiful natural cove at the foot of the majestic Sierra Madre mountains, surrounded by jungle, nature and the Pacific Ocean, is the small community of Yelapa. The tranquility and privacy make Yelapa the perfect place for artists and writers. It’s even completely free of any roads! The only way to reach the town is by water taxi, a 40 minute trip from Puerto Vallarta.

Discover the Charms of San Sebastián

Nestled deep within the hills of the Sierra Madre mountain range, the historic Mexican town of San Sebastián del Oeste dates back to 1605! It’s one of the few places in Mexico to conserve the charm of colonial architecture. You can admire all sort of wonderful views including of Cerro de La Bufa and Banderas Bay. And watching the sunset above the mountains in tranquility is one of the best things to do here!

Riviera Nayarit:

Visit Local Lo De Perla

A 3 hour guided tour takes you through the rainforest and Lo de Perla orchidarium, an amazing scene for wildlife lovers and those seeking a connection with nature. It’s a truly unique experience where you’ll encounter a marvelous diversity of colorful butterflies, orchids, mammals, reptiles, birds, and insects. The tour is a perfect day out for the whole family!

Take a Scenic Drive to Offbeat Punta El Custodio

Visit Platanitos Beach, a traditional fishing village and enjoy the delicious seafood dishes in thatched-roof huts lining the seashore. Don’t miss the “Hummingbird Garden”, a sanctuary with more than 130 species, for a truly off the beaten path experience.

Marvel at the Sacred Tatei Haramara Islet

The sacred White Rock, Tatei Haramara, is an important sight located across from Playa del Rey in San Blas. For the Wixárika people, it’s the physical manifestation of the goddess Haramara and the first solid object to appear in this world. According to Huichol legend, Tatei Haramara is the origin of all life. It’s one of the most sacred spots for the Huichol, the Cora and the Mexicanero people!

Mexico Proposes New Rules To Tax Highly Digitalized Businesses

Mexico Proposes New Rules To Tax Highly Digitalized Businesses

A bill was introduced to the Mexican Congress on August 21 to tax digital platforms this includes such global digital companies such as Airbnb, Uber and Netflix. Wat this means for consumers remains to be seen. But it is a clear indication that homeowners who rent their properties through such services such as Airbnb are soon to be subjected to extra scrutiny.

Background of the bill
In 2019, after the new administration was elected, there was an attempt to tax some highly digitalized businesses. This time, however, the government focused on the collection of taxes from users of some digital platforms under the argument that is merely updating the current tax legislation.
In a new effort to tax highly digitalized businesses, a bill was introduced in the Mexican Congress on August 21.
Mexico’s tax on highly digitalized businesses
Introduced in the Mexican Congress, the bill intends to equalize competition between traditional and digital commerce. The bill’s report states some multinationals operate in Mexico without being subject to taxation because they have put in place tax structures that do not create taxable presence.
The report adds that the non-taxed amounts that would otherwise be paid as income tax and VAT not only create issues for tax revenue but also could lead to tax avoidance through failure to report income or falsified invoicing.
Additionally, the report states that its purpose is to not only tax such activities, but also to integrate such actors within the current Mexico’s legal framework.

Amendments to VAT
The bill incorporates as taxpayers for VAT, those “national and foreign” companies that “provide services as intermediaries through technological platforms for electronic commerce purposes”.
The bill defines technological platforms as “intermediaries that allow the exchange of goods and services to the final user, easing the selling process while using electronic payments mostly”.
The bill adds that such intermediaries are obliged to keep its accounting records.
Amendments to the income tax laws
Further, under the bill, companies, both “national and foreign” that “provide services through a technological platform to provide goods and services” must pay income tax. For this purpose, companies must register a tax domicile in Mexico and have a legal representative in Mexican territory.
The amendment considers that such businesses will create a permanent residence for income tax purposes.

Antitrust amendments
The bill proposes that the Federal Trade Commission will create a registry to evaluate compliance with the best commercial practices and antitrust practices for highly digitalised businesses.
Impact on highly digitalized businesses
The bill mandates foreign companies to register a tax address in Mexico which will clearly subject foreign companies to Mexican taxation, whether for income tax or VAT purposes.
It must be added that the consequences of such registration will create a permanent establishment in Mexico and consequently increase liability for the central office. If foreign companies register, it will also give rise to other legal obligations, like registering in the Mexican Public Registry of Commerce or filing notices in accordance to the Mexican foreign investment law.
Another aspect of the bill is that the definition of “technological platform” is mostly aimed at including businesses that act as a liaison between suppliers and consumers. This proposal does not take in consideration the different types of business models that exist, like social media platforms, search engines, or online marketplaces.
It appears that the Mexican government has finally taken its first steps to tax highly digital businesses, and it is important to be vigilant on the process to avoid unexpected surprises in the coming weeks.

RE/MAX Puerto Vallarta and Community Service – September 7, 2019

 

I wish to share with you our latest, and more productive, Community Service event!

On Saturday, September 7, 2019, we gathered and tidied up, 67 full size garbage bags in the area of Benito Juarez, between the 2 tunnels.  We were able to do that in less than 1 hour.

That is incredible!

An additional reason is that we were so fortunate to have an extra 12 young persons to assist us, who were referred to us by Alex Breceda, who provides  free exercise training to persons that may not be able to pay for that.

This is our 5th event, and so far, we have gathered over 250 bags of garbage, that are off our streets.

REMAX Puerto Vallarta is also working with the city, that we will pay for, and install more garbage containers, in all areas of Puerto Vallarta.

This shall be done, firstly with education and information about the times of the pick-up’s of the garbage, but also with re-usable grocery bags to minimize the front-end of the garbage situation.

How we are going to do this is with: fund raisers, donations from restaurants, from our sponsors, and from our real estate community, both agency’s and developers.  Our communities, too!

We are not looking at the city to assist us, as I believe if you see a problem, fix it.

If you can share this message, as well as like our REMAX Facebook page, you shall receive our next community service location, as well as the other fund-raisers we shall be having; that would be wonderful.

We live here, love it and enjoy it incredibly, so I suggest to get more persons involved to make it even better.  

When you see the RE/MAX lime green shirt, please say thank you, as that person earned it by doing community service; for all of us!

Gracias!  Todd Bates #remaxinpv. #puertovallartaremax. #remaxsitesmarina #remaxdestiny

VALLARTA NAYARIT GASTRONÓMICA IS BACK WITH A GALA LINEUP

VALLARTA NAYARIT GASTRONÓMICA IS BACK WITH A GALA LINEUP

Vallarta Nayarit Gastronómica is ready for a new cycle with the slogan “We have a story to tell,” right on the heels of their big celebration for their tenth anniversary.

During a press conference, last Thursday, August 29, event organizers and directors Carlos Elizondo and Consuelo Elipe shared how what started out as a training seminar is today a top-ranked festival, one that continues to evolve offering the latest and greatest from Latin America’s culinary landscape.

Puerto Vallarta and the Riviera Nayarit are getting decked out from September 29 through October 3, 2019, to celebrate the eleventh edition along with 36 renowned chefs. Between them the chefs have received multiple Michelin Stars and Soles Repsol, as well as top spots in The 50 Best Restaurants and Top Chefs. Sommeliers, mixologists, and world-class speakers will also be present.

Jesús Carmona Jiménez, president of the Bahía de Banderas Hotel and Motel Association (AHMBB) and the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau, highlighted the importance of gastronomy as a key asset for the promotion of the Riviera Nayarit. He encouraged a continuation of the joint work between Puerto Vallarta and the Riviera Nayarit, especially now that the Mexico Tourism Board is closed.

“The region has so much to offer, diversity, events, etc., but now we need to celebrate and promote our gastronomy,” he reiterated.

VNG 2019 is staying true to its origins with show cookings, premium tastings, gourmet workshops, the GastronomiKids segment, samplings, an expo area, wine-pairing dinners, and special events. The event is also setting an important precedent by evolving and improving its experiences through new events aimed at strengthening business alliances and touching on topics of interest for the industry including:

Gourmet Night Out, a meet and greet between the top 100 Decision Makers in Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit with sponsors and press that takes place during a private cocktail party in the expo area of the Hotel Sheraton Buganvilias. This VIP closed-door networking event is for a select group of destination professionals designed to close business more effectively.

This year’s lineup includes some of the most important and media-savvy chefs in the world as well as some expert speakers including: Eddy Warman, gastronomy and wine specialist with a popular radio show; Anette Michel, Master Chef host on TV Azteca; Ramón Dios, founder of gastrocoaching and owner of Mesón Fuencarral; and Cecilia Núñez, editorial director and partner at Food & Travel México; among others.

Chef Lula Martín del Campo, with her vast experience as a chef and with the media, is emceeing the event and is hosting one of the main wine-pairing dinners on the program.

Vallarta Nayarit Gastronómica 2019 undoubtedly has a fantastic lineup that includes several surprises to be announced during the inauguration.

The world of wine and spirits is sharing the latest news and products via sommeliers and mixologists. This year the event features two of the greatest: Martin Kovar and Israel Díaz. As far as private events, the welcome cocktail is a much-anticipated gala event.

Vallarta Nayarit Gastronómica wouldn’t be complete without GastronomiKids. This segment began in 2016 as part of its social responsibility program and stayed on to help the less-fortunate kids.

Functional Fun: Three-Day Mosaic Workshops Teach Skills & Inspire

Functional Fun: Three-Day Mosaic Workshops Teach Skills & Inspire

September is upon us, and that means the snowbirds will soon begin their annual winter migration. Work will be picking up again at the Tile Park, too. As summer’s humidity begins to loosen its grip, giving way to those warm and mild days we love so much, we’ll be back at it full force. This also means the 2019-2020 workshop season will be ramping up, so if you’ve been thinking you’d like to join one, reach out to us ASAP!

If you want some new things to do in Puerto Vallarta this winter, workshops at the Tile Park are an excellent option. They are three days long and take you through the entire mosaic process end to end. The first day is spent planning and plotting the design, and getting started on the tiling. Day two is all tiles, all the time: cutting, shaping, and sticking them, bringing your design to life right before your eyes. On day three, the grouting gets done, cementing all your hard work right into Vallarta’s history books. A great way to express your creativity, and learn a new skill too! Your backyard picnic table is no longer safe. Nothing in your home is, really.

Nat learned the art of mosaic from renowned outsider artist Isaiah Zagar and has spent the last several years refining her own technique and style as an artist. She loves to “talk shop” where all things art are concerned, not just mosaic. She never stops learning about other artists, new materials and methods, and the world around us too. So, workshops offer the unadvertised special of inspiration from Nat and your fellow workshop participants. You spend three days in this space with fellow creators, talking about art, making art, and you really do come away inspired.

It’s a great way to get involved in one of the most exciting public art projects in Mexico, and not just for all the good feels and camaraderie either. The park is now classified as federally protected land, meaning it can’t be demolished in favor of development.

So the work you do will remain forever! Been coming to Vallarta for 20 years? Fantastic… it’ll be there for every one of your next 20… and beyond. The project is nearing the halfway point, and the transformation is truly astounding. This is what it looks like half-done…the finished product is going to be out of this world! Check out some of our past workshops: https://www.tileparkpv.com/workshops.

For the upcoming season, the workshops will be structured a little differently.
The schedule has yet to be finalized and posted online, but you can still reserve your spot! Just drop us a line https://www.tileparkpv.com/contactus to nail down some dates and secure your reservation.
The summer break is nice, but we’re looking forward to seeing your smiling face around the park again, too. If you’re a migratory bird, be sure to swing through once your voyage is complete! We have lots to show you.
