Riviera Nayarit and Puerto Vallarta and Lo de Marcos, sit at Latitude 21, the same as Waikiki, and they share the same Ring of Fire geology and much of the same flora and fauna. Puerto Vallarta, Riviera Nayarit and Lo de Marcos are magical places to visit any time of year and we hope to be seeing you very soon.

Special Casting Alert

We were approached by a Casting Director based in New York City who is looking for Americans or Canadians who are about to pack it up, buy a property and move to a new country.

They want to document on film the entire process of home selection, moving and any remodeling that you are doing.

The show will be broadcast on a premium streaming network.

If this is you, please reach out to us at so that we can connect you with the Casting Director who is in charge of the project.


Galvan is growing again!

In June our Directors voted to add a new position to our team.

We decided that we needed to hire an Assistant Property Manager.

It was a short search full of a lot of interviews and at the end we were fortunate to be able to hire Isaac Ramos, a Lo de Marcos resident, to fill the position. He is no relation to our Director of Property Management, Ivania Ramos. It was just a funny coincidence.

Isaac is very talented and a much needed and welcomed new Team Member at Galvan.

Welcome Isaac to Famila Galvan!
