THERE ARE TWO WAYS OF BEING CREATIVE, ONE CAN SING AND DANCE, OR ONE CAN CREATE AN ENVIRONMENT IN WHICH SINGERS AND DANCERS FLOURISH
Warren G. Bennis
Hacienda Mosaico is expansive, tropical and artful.
Our goal is to offer an accessible place for individuals and groups to develop and execute ideas in a non-competitive atmosphere….a place for art and ideas in a creative and comfortable environment in an exotic location, giving fresh images and ideas with lots of fun group energy.

Hacienda Mosaico Puerto Vallarta
This walled garden hacienda with swimming pool and inviting common areas is artist owned and operated. Art abounds! Made on site mosaic furnishings serve to enhance your breakfast in this lush garden setting. Palm, mango, guayaba, and banana trees, along with flowering ginger, hibiscus, jasmine, bird of paradise as well as the ever-present bougainvillea create delight for all the senses.
Hacienda Mosaico is located in Colonia Versalles, a typical upscale Mexican neighborhood that affords visitors a chance to experience the charm of daily life in old Mexico. You will find cobbled streets, where tortillerias and markets catering to the locals rather than the tourists…..craft shops, cantinas, night life and adventure. Hacienda Mosaico is ideal for small retreats and intimate parties as well as a quiet respite from the busy world….a tranquil vacation destination in a tropical environment for adults.
Independent travelers and thinkers often prefer Hacienda Mosaico rather than a hotel because it offers the opportunity to meet the local community. As with most seaside resort towns, the closer you move to the beach the more built up and touristy it becomes. Moving only a short distance away from the ocean you quickly step into old Mexico. With the beach only blocks away, Hacienda Mosaico offers a quiet, friendly, residential neighborhood and the convenience of a central location. Here it is possible to experience the “real Mexico”.
Hacienda Mosaico is located just 3.5 miles south of the airport in Colonia Versalles.
Wireless Internet is Available at Hacienda Mosaico.
