The Casa is honoured to welcome Alan and Libbie Soffer, creators of the Art Incubator Workshop Series, to share in facilitating Creativity - Culture - Cuisine week. The Soffers bring the unique artistic vision, technical expertise and professionalism, along with the warm, friendly and fun loving personalities that make the Casa Experience Unique. We are excited to have them join us and look forward to a very special week of creative exploration and celebration! They will join us for creative drawing and painting, gourmet cooking classes and lots of fun in this unique workshop designed for both artists and non artists alike. The workshop begins Sat., January 9th during the fabulous week of the fiesta of the Virgin of Guadeloupe.

Take a break from the ordinary, come and enjoy the tropical lifestyle on Mexican time. Jump-start your intuition as you recharge your creative batteries in this inspirational village, where time seems to stand still. Some of the opportunities available are painting, drawing, sculpting, cooking classes from traditional Mexican chefs, swimming, sea kayaking, snorkeling, shopping at the Mercado, or just relaxing on the beach or your private patio. Your art workshop vacation at us is different from anything you have experienced. But that’s not all: make sure you bring your camera, journal and sketchbook, as there will be numerous cultural excursions as well.

We will visit the exotic botanical gardens for photography and sketching, we will visit the Mt. town of El Tuito, tour the small but beautiful Hacienda Museum, having lunch and tequila tasting at the hacienda restaurant overlooking the mountains and the Aguave plantation and then join in the evening Fiesta of the Virgin of Guadeloupe. This is a rare opportunity to witness and participate in a very authentic rural Mexican Fiesta – not on typical tourist routes! There is a “Posada” “Parade” down the main street of town by many surrounding villages culminating with performances and fiesta in the Zocalo and fireworks at the church! We will also be taking a trip into Puerto Vallarta for shopping at the Mercado and wonderful crafts shops, walking on the malecon (boardwalk), at night (filled with artists, street performers and revelers) and tour some of the galleries to experience the city’s lively arts scene.

There will be a boat trip to explore the gorgeous coastline and spectacular rock formations, as well as to swim or snorkel at Los Arcos National Coral Reef Park, with opportunities for seeing sea turtles, whales, dolphins and abundant fish. Other wild life is right at hand, from the balcony of your room you can view tropical birds and observe the local unspoiled Boca. Watch (and participate) as the simple authentic Mexican village life unfolds around you. This quaint fishing village unspoiled by tourists, is a rare treat off the beaten path. Words don’t actually do justice to the wonderful adventure in store for each participant. Your all inclusive week long Cultural Art Workshop/Vacation is just that - a workshop that is structured so you don't have to worry about details, but not too rigid - loose enough to enjoy yourself, relax and experience a vacation from the typical.
