March 1st 2013 marks the 8th anniversary for PVRPV in Puerto Vallarta Mexico. These last 8 years has been quite a journey filled with hopes and dreams, and this anniversary would not of been possible had it not been for our wonderful staff, our clients, our collaborators and of course our friends.

We have shared many experiences over the years, we have made mistakes that have turned into learning experiences.
I would like to say a special thanks to all of my staff, and to my sister Lina who has been in Puerto Vallarta now for 5 years. Sorry about the champagne on the shirt, oops it was an accident!

I would also like to thank our Clients, and your preference in choosing our company and our collaborators as you have helped us make this happen.

Tim Longpré

History
One of Puerto Vallarta’s premier vacation rental agencies, PVRPV opened it’s doors on March 1, 2005. Tim Longpré who is originally from Toronto, opened his doors with a staff of 3, represented 50 properties from their small office located at 152 Francisco Rodriguez. On October 1, 2008, the office moved to its current location at 210 Pino Suarez.

Tim and his able staff of 25 have over 7 years of experience in the vacation services industry, representing over 500 properties located throughout the Puerto Vallarta area.
PVRPV is pro-active in the community co-sponsoring events such as Charity Bingo for four years. During the swine flu outbreak in the summer of 2009, the PVRPV offices became the staging area for a huge food drive, organized to assist those in need. In 2011, PVRPV co-sponsored the first annual Mob Flash Dance to promote tourism in Puerto Vallarta.
Additionally, the company took an active role in organizing the 2012 Mardi Gras Parade, and this year 2013, the Masquerade Party in Los Muertos Pier, promoting the next year Mardi Gras Parade 2014.

The list of community service projects is long and will continue into the future.

Tim depends heavily on his loyal staff for community service projects and they always deliver 110%.
Even with all the extra-curricular activities, the agency has served thousands of satisfied vacationers over the years.

Customer service is an extremely important commodity, one that often falls by the wayside in far too many businesses. PVRPV’s continued success in a very competitive market prompted Tim to develop and heavily rely on a 5* rating system, our overall rating over the last 4 years has been 4.5 out of 5 in all areas. The innovative creation of an automated booking system for owners and customers, has streamlined reservations coordination.

Congratulations, PVRPV and here’s wishing you many more successful years.

On Saturday July 21st visitors and residents in Puerto Vallarta’s Old Town watched in amusement as scavenger hunters took over the town.

Follow us on:

36 teams, more than 144 people, armed with smart phones participated in the inaugural rally that generated $65,270.50 pesos for Pasitos de Luz, a local organization that provides services for children with special needs.

You could feel the excitement and anticipation in the air as teams arrived at Nacho Daddy’s early to register and the hunt got underway promptly at 1pm. Four-person teams raced on foot, by car, ATV’s and bikes through the neighborhood to find obscure landmarks, people, objects and perform challenges from the hunt list. Challenges included collecting 40 different items, solving mystery clues, burying team members in the sand, shooting a hole in one, eating hot dogs, finding Nel and Luke, bobbing for apples, and standing in a boat. Items collected included a real fish eye, a t-shirt with the Mexican flag, and a copy of the 2011 Gourmet Festival magazine, picture of Elvis, a Alejandro Fernandez cd and a live cock roach to name a few.
The most challenging clue was ‘Like the “Mother Lode” I’m gold and am underground. Find me and record my “claim number” that contains a ‘3’ and a ‘G’. Three teams were able to find the car underground in the parkade. Teams were also required to use their smart phones to upload pictures of the teams completing some of the tasks.

Teams had four hours to check off as many items on the list as possible and the 3 teams with the highest points were awarded cash prizes. The winning teams were the Twisted Palms/Los Muertos Brewing, the Buzos Basureros, and the Awesome 4Sum.

Many thanks to the Home Owners of PVRPV.com for donating the $5000 for 1st place, Mike Hickman for donating $3000 for second place and Wally Demary and Chuck Mallery for donating $1,500 for 3rd place.Post-event festivities continued at Nacho Daddy’s with live entertainment, raffle drawings, auctions and award presentations.

Event coordinators, Tim Longpre from PVRPV, Carole Fast and Charlotte Semple from Xocodiva Artisan Chocolates and Lori Lorensen from Rio Amapas would like to thank to the businesses who donated items for the raffle, the volunteers, Nacho Daddy’s for hosting the event and the team members. A special thanks to the event sponsors, Chad La Grone for his generous donation of $5000 pesos and Bruce and Julia from Teatro Lemon for donating the auction item. Together we have made a difference to Pasitos de Luz and the lives of the families they support.

The next hunt is scheduled for January 20,2013. Details coming soon!

ABOUT PASITOS DE LUZ…

Pasitos de Luz is a 7am – 7pm rehabilitation center that provides FREE medical, educational, nutritional and well being services to 120 (60 on a daily basis, 60 rotating) children with severe disabilities (quadriplegic, Down syndrome, hunters syndrome, autism, cerebral palsy, total and partial paralysis, sequelae of meningitis, hydrocephaly and muscular dystrophy). Because of the intensive assistance requirements of these special children, the cost for their care is higher than for most children in Mexico. Many of the children at Pasitos de Luz cannot feed themselves; sit, stand or move without help; speak or hear; and most, ranging in age from 1 year to 20 years, wear diapers. 100% of the funds raised at this event will go towards caring for our children. In addition to caring for our children, we also need to cover our operating costs (electricity, gas, water). Our operations areentirely funded though donations from individuals or events such as this one. We’d like to take this opportunity to invite you to visit us. Our location is Exiquio Corona 545, Col. Bobadilla ▪ Tel / Fax: + 52 (322) 299-3605 pasitosdeluz@gmail.com, Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico.
