Barry Kessler - The Travel Show

April 16, 2017


My name is Barry Kessler and I have been going to Puerto Vallarta for vacation with my wife for over 30 years. I courted her there on the beaches on the South-side in the Romantic zone, known by the locals as the Playa de los Muertos. I asked her to marry me while on one knee, overlooking this beautiful city, while dining in a fancy restaurant high up in the 5th of December Neighborhood in the North Downtown area of Vallarta in 1986.

We think it is the most romantic place on the planet. And that is why I want to introduce this amazing town to all of you. The art, the food, the beauty, the unforgettable sunsets, the charm and the  wonderful people of Puerto Vallarta await you.  My aim, is not only to entice the newcomer, but also to give you, the everyday traveler the incentive and the initiative to stretch your horizons and make the most of your time off in this beautiful seaside paradise on the Pacific coast of Mexico.

This is an interactive show where I invite my listeners to give their thoughts and opinions about all things Puerto Vallarta, including all of the Bahia de Banderas. From Sayulita north, to Cabo Corrientes to the south. I interview the movers and the shakers in town, from restaurateurs, to Resort owners and hotel managers. I interview local artists, local personalities, wedding planners, tour operators, expats, shop owners, you name it!

Join my friends and me as we take you on a trip down south of the border. Discover the magic of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico!
