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.

I had the opportunity attend this jewelry workshop but the unexpected surprise was the beauty, serenity, and comfort I experienced at the Hacienda Mosaico. Our hosts took care of us in such a special way. The minute you walk into through the gate, you are fall in to the arms of this gorgeous hacienda which helped inspire me to expand my realm of creativity. Thanks a million, and I can’t wait to come back! What an amazing experience ❤️! And the chef that comes in every day makes this heaven on earth!!!❤️❤️❤️

Dear Sam, I wanted to take a moment to thank you for spending so much of your life, time and energy making such a splendid retreat for artists. I knew it was magical when we pulled up to the gate but that was just the beginning.
Of course Jorge, Ana, made the food delicious daily. ( hopefully they got their red envelopes) I really loved my very early morning time when I got up at 4:30 am and went to the quiet of the front living room and did my writing. To be surrounded by so much was inspirational.
It was a trip to long be remembered,
Best wishes to you and your man for a safe holiday.
I have a ton of pictures to share and will eventually but I just had to do a quick write up on this place. I hate to give them great reviews because then everyone will want to take workshops and there won’t be a space left for me!
This rare and magical place is creativity embodied. Every single thing from the artfully and finely crafted, fresh meals, to the colorful yet serene accommodations and the workshops (I took Molly and David Vorhees’s Silveramics workshop) is almost beyond proper description.
Hacienda Mosaico is truly a work of art created by a wonderful team of three, Sam, Lea (the dog), and Xenofon.

I wanted to share with you what a wonderful time I had last week in Mexico.
Everything was wonderful. Special thanks for making the Covid test so available and easy, and turning us on to the wonder message.
