Our aim is to provide 12-step program resources for all English language Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) members in Puerto Vallarta and visitors to the greater Banderas Bay region in Mexico. Additionally we support many other local 12-step group meetings, such as Al-Anon, Narcotics Anonymous (NA), and many more…
We’d love it if you joined us at one of our meeting places. Particularly during the winter, Banderas Bay offers a great variety of programs, locations, and times to choose from. The Serenity Group in PV hosts meetings for AA, NA, OA, CODA, men, women, LGBT, beginners, artists, freethinkers, meditation, yoga, and others!
For a list of local meetings please see the Programs and Schedules page, which includes locations, times, and contact information for specific meetings.
The Maps page contains some regional maps to help you find find your way around PV and the Banderas Bay area.
Other sources of information related to sobriety in Mexico are listed on the Recovery Resources page.
Be sure to also check out the annual Sobriety Under the Sun (SUS) Convention.
Sobriety Under The Sun is a 12-Step recovery event organized by the SUS Organizing Committee, who are a group of individual members of Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Al-Anon. The environment, speakers and workshops provide an opportunity for sobriety, recovery, fellowship and fun under the sun in beautiful Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico.
Our annual SUS Convention are a great success with a memorable weekend with a great speaker line-up, workshops and AA and Al-Anon meetings.
Many SUS attendees come back year after year and we hope you will too. Registration for the next Convention will open up mid-year and we will let you know the exact date for that and more with details at aaPVConvention.com.
We always need something... here are some ways you can help.
Although the specific needs change almost daily, we always need AA and Al-Anon literature. So if you are planning a trip to PV and have a little extra room in your suitcase to bring some books or pamphlets down, you can help us a lot.
Connie S., our Literature Chair, has offered to have you contact her by email to let us know you're willing to help. She can tell you our current needs, and she'll even have the literature delivered to your home if there's enough time.
To contact Connie just click here. She'll get back to you right away to arrange everything. And THANKS for helping.
PV Alano Club: You can help us and leave a lasting memento of your help at our club in the form of our "Leave A Mark" Tile - a custom, 4 inch square wall tile. The cost is $50 for each tile and the proceeds help us tremendously.
You can include your First Name and Last Initial, your sobriety date and your home group along with the AA, NA, or Al-Anon symbol.
Or, you can create a memorial tile for someone who's passed on with their name and their home group or other significant information. We've provided a couple of examples and ordering info here.
Of course, if you'd like to just make a contribution to the Alano Club of Puerto Vallarta and not order a tile, we've provided the button above for that as well.
Thank you for helping us to provide a pleasant meeting environment for people in recovery!
