Arts & Entertainment in Puerto Vallarta
El que por su gusto corre, nunca se cansa
This PV Scene is the byproduct of an empiric, hedonistic, humanistic philosophy of life. And of a love of México. This site covers the basics of Puerto Vallarta, many of the standard tourista (both Gringo and National) attractions and events, as well as occasionally slipping and sliding onto the rather extensive and varied underbelly of this sleepy little Mexican beach town.
One of the things we are trying to do with this website is to integrate the foreign Gringo community into the local National community by posting many events that are outside of the normal Gringo tourista lifestyle. A modest command of the Spanish language is helpful for most of these activities, although it is quite possible to experience total immersion and appreciation without this skill. It’s a bit like being deaf, not speaking Spanish in Mexico, and finding that there can be life, and a very exciting life at that, without aural comprehension. Humans have quite a few other senses beyond hearing and this is an extremely sensual culture.
Another of the things we are trying to do with this website is to integrate the Gay and the Straight communities. Language is immaterial to this effort; the connection is individual humanity.
WHO WE ARE
Rick Hepting has published several monthly magazines (none which has been described as ‘orthodox’) as well as a quite ‘normal’ weekly newspaper in Oakland, California. He has worked as a journalist for small newspapers in Santa Cruz, Oakland, San Francisco and Mendocino California. He also owned and operated Berkeley Type, a commercial advertising, typesetting & design studio in Berkeley, California for 10 years. Rick is the editor and does most of the day-to-day writing on this site. He’s also the webmaster.
Sarah Hepting is an artist and commercial photographer and she does the schlep work on this website. The PVScene wouldn’t exist without her skills, talent and perseverance.

WEB DESIGN AND MAINTENANCE
If you like what you see here, take that as a hint that we can design websites. We specialize in designing websites that will effectively promote your business or art with no limitations on content or size. Our portfolio may be seen at www.xlibre.com.
We also maintain and upgrade established websites, keeping them current and their images intact. We can manage any type of website within its original design and intent. SEO is our specialty.
And, probably most importantly, we are very competitive in pricing.
We author or send no spam or direct advertising or any communications of any type without the expressed permission of the receiver. All financial interaction with this website is through the individual vendors (Amazon.com, AllPosters.com, PayPal, the advertisers, etc) and is protected by their security systems. We handle no private financial information directly on The PV Scene.
We sell items (books, art and music) from Amazon.com and AllPosters.com on a commission basis. All financial interaction is through the companies we are affiliated with. We receive a small percentage commission from each sale. We offer selected Amazon.com products through our MERCADO.
The prices you pay going to these vendors through our website are exactly the same as you would pay going to them directly.
We hope you enjoy our service and find it useful. We love what we do.
