Jumping for Joy at Paradise Village

We don’t know the full details of Paradise Village Marina’s recent upgrades, but by the looks of this photo the entire staff was pretty dammed glad when the project was completed. If you’ve been to the marina in recent years — which is located just outside Puerto Vallarta in Nuevo Vallarta’s Paradise Village Resort — you know that demand for megayacht berthage inspired Harbormaster Dick Markie to add a number of enormous slips a couple of years ago, and those efforts are apparently continuing.

We’re told there’s still plenty of room for typical cruising boats, however. In fact, specially discounted rates have just been announced for this year’s Pacific Puddle Jumpers. Oh, and in case you were wondering, no one was injured in the process of taking this photo.
