President’s Message

Dear Lindo Mar Owners;

Many of you have been owners at Lindo Mar since its inception and others have been with the association for a shorter time. Together in our little piece of paradise; we have seen ups and downs financially and as an organization we have overcome many obstacles.

2023 has been a particularly difficult year as we have been dealt the hand of a hurricane along with changes in Mexican law and economic pressure. These challenges have caused stress for our community and the staff at Lindo Mar. The Lindo Mar Board met on site in October the week following the hurricane and we saw first-hand the challenges ahead of the team at Lindo Mar. Our staff is fabulous and is working together fervently to bring the resort back to 100% operation.

Hurricane damage was confined to the restaurant and Penthouse 902. The iconic tree that grew up through the center of the restaurant fell victim to the hurricane and has been removed over recent weeks.

Other changes at the restaurant include the relocation of the cashier station to the bar area and the implementation of a hand-held Point-of-Sale System to expedite ordering transmitting and billing processes.

I would like to take this opportunity to welcome Giancarlo Accettullo to the Board of Directors. New directors bring fresh ideas and a diverse perspective to the Lindo Mar community. Giancarlo’s willingness to serve on the board is appreciated. The board would also like to thank and recognize Roger Denton for his years of service on the board and his tireless work on the renovation/remodeling project. Without his engaged service the renovation would not have reached its current stage of completion. While the decision has been made to pause on the final renovation phase it is the intention of the board to resume when economic conditions stabilize.

Thank you for your continued support of Lindo Mar. As you know Lindo Mar is not a thing or a place. Lindo Mar is people friends and family. Looking forward to a prosperous 2024!

Treasurer’s Report

November 2023

May I introduce myself. My name is Sandra Erickson and I have been an owner at Lindo Mar Resort since 1989 and Board member since 2020. Until very recently I was serving as Vice President. In June 2023 at the Board meeting I was nominated as Treasurer (following lots of words expressing disappointment that Chuck Meacham wished not to be nominated again).

MBA and a doctorate in international business. I am operating manager of the family farm. Therefore first and foremost I would like to express my extreme appreciation for the work that Chuck Meacham has provided Lindo Mar Board of Directors and owner/members in his position as Treasurer for the past many years. He will be serving as Secretary of the Board of Directors in the future.

Lindo Mar is continuing to do well despite both operational (caused by Hurricane Lida) and economic mishaps (caused by both the Mexican exchange rate and its significant inflationary challenges.) The October experience of Hurricane Lidia (Category 4) created some notable but manageable damage i.e. the big beautiful tree that stood in the bar area had to be removed some windows could not stand the extreme wind and water damage in the hallways. Lindo Mar Manager and Daniel Garza Regional Director Resort Operations assisting us in operations.

LMR’s finance situation took longer to come to agreement. This hurdle was caused by the unprecedented (in recent years) variation of the strength of the Mexican Peso to the weakening American Dollar. The exchange rate hadn’t been so low since 2010 (12.62 pesos to the dollar). Further examples of the variation include in March of 2020 the exchange was nearly 25 pesos to the dollar meaning the dollar was strong…in March of 2022 it was 20.88 to the dollar (dollar is weakening) ….in March of 2023 it was 18.0 (dollar still weakening) …when the BOD was considering the 2024 budget in late summer of 2023 the exchange rate had dropped to 16.83. (dollar was significantly weakening).

The Delinquency Rate always a business concern is still high at 10.93%. That is approximately 1.3% higher than 2022 at the same point in time. I feel it is helpful to note however that the Delinquency Rate has dropped each month in this calendar year. Regardless we still have to work on that.

Contributions to the Reserve Fund had continued monthly for 2023. Approximately $10600 monthly had been contributed to the Reserve Fund from which we drew funds to continue our remodeling project. A note of information is that with the very tight 2024 Budge we will not be contributing a monthly set amount to the Reserve Fund. This summer the goal was to the progress. The goal date was Sept 30. I was there in October and that goal was met. As previously shared there was no unexpected difficulties with the water and the sewer line on the first floor. However the cost significantly increased from the original estimate. We had the funds in the Reserve Account to accommodate the first-floor work but did determine that we would delay the 9th floor remodel until next year. I am sure that disappointed 9th floor owner/members but it was a prudent decision and I don’t regret it. My family complained too.

The fire suppression system and hydrant have been budgeted but the actual installation is delayed due to local government activities. That project will be done when the various government entities resolve their issues.

Finally at our recent Board meeting in we were informed that the BOD is receiving the Financial Packets late because of the migration to a new accounting platform within Capital Vacations. It is called Acumatica and is supposed to provide “robust content and a new look and save time reduce delay and avoid errors and also has a higher level of security”. I look forward to it.

Message From the General Manager

Wishing you all the best we would like to send a warm greeting to all our owners from heaven on earth. We are enjoying an exceptional summer friendly and with spectacular rains.

Lindo Mar has continued to be a favorite for many tourists who visit us at this time of year and for local families who like to get together to enjoy the food and atmosphere at La Playita restaurant.

There has been a lot going on at the resort several improvements on the common areas such the pool deck and sewer system replacement.

The units on the ground floor look great and I am sure will make a big difference once they are finished. The restaurant keeps busy and ocean water is warmer than usual and an unusually high tide has made our beach look fantastic the scenario is one of the breathtaking beauties in La Playita. During the remodeling season the Lindo Mar work team has undergone training preventive maintenance and deep magnificent vacation experience.

We are excited to see you back in heaven on earth soon and that you can enjoy a wonderful vacation

President's President’s Report

photo of D Lockwood

We hope all of you are doing well and enjoying your summer-time passions. All of the Board of Directors have been busy since my last President's Message with our families and fun as well as attending to our Lindo Mar duties.

The Board wants to thank you for your faith in us and the support you show us. The things that we can accomplish together because you pay your maintenance fees, use the restaurant, tip the waiters and support staff are all results of the love you have for Lindo Mar.

Why does our staff stay with us? Because unlike other timeshares that lay off during low season, Lindo Mar is committed to our community and employs year-round.

Our June meeting was at TPI`s offices in California and it was great to be able to travel again and meet with the management team face-to-face. In addition to holding the Regular Board Meeting, we were on site to witness TPI and Capital Vacations coming together for their first team meeting. It was inspiring to watch two like-minded companies come together for the greater good of both organizations.

Capital Vacations will bring more timeshare dimensions and availability of talent as well as broaden TPI timeshare offerings. We believe this is a very good add-on for TPI and Lindo Mar. In terms of our resort, Daniel Garza, our TPI consultant, and Ulises Alfaro, our onsite manager, are working daily to make Lindo Mar the best it can be!

Our main focus has been, and still is, to finish the remodel project of the 9th and 1st floors. The financial stability of the club is our top priority, and we will make the decision to move forward with the renovation project as soon as possible. Thank you again for paying your maintenance fees and supporting the operations of Lindo Mar.

Your Board Members are onsite at different times during the year, and we appreciate your support and feedback. Please know that we are working hard on your behalf!

Lindo Mar Resort Treasurer’s Report
July 2022

photo of Chuck Meacham

Our Lindo Mar Resort operations appear to be back to pre-COVID levels after two years of serious financial challenges for your Board of Directors and management. Occupancy during high season is solidly back to normal, and slightly higher during some weeks. Occupancy during the low season continues to be depressed.

After experiencing a deficit in 2021, La Playita Restaurant/bar has returned to profitability as restaurant patronage increased, especially during high season. An initiative of the Board is to determine how we can better spread this increased patronage throughout the day to improve service at peak mealtimes. We will also be focusing on increasing customer usage, mostly locals, during the summer months when member usage is low. Of course, implementing cost controls while improving service and food/drink quality is an ongoing effort.

One area of specific concern, especially for myself as Treasurer, is a slight increase in delinquent/late maintenance fee payments during the first half of this year. Last year we experienced a decreasing delinquency rate. Lindo Mar does have a 91% on time payment of maintenance fees which is good by industry standards. Our maintenance fees have seen only one 4% increase during the last 7 years. Lindo Mar reserve funds are healthy, with a current balance of over $350,000. We will continue to add funds to the reserves on a monthly basis, through the end of the year and hope to have over $400,000 by year-end.

While we have successfully remodeled all units on floors 2 through 8 and all common areas, floors 1 and 9 have yet to be remodeled. We had initially planned to remodel floor 1 during 2022. This schedule was postponed due to many uncertainties associated with gas, sewer, water, and drainage pipes under the first floor with unknown but potential significant costs. Additionally, we were informed by Mexican government officials that an expensive fire suppression system and hydrant are required to be put in place at our expense. We are taking a fiscally cautious approach before continuing remodeling efforts. Patience please!

Chuck Meacham

Lindo mar activities

Our staff proudly received 2022 RCI Gold Crown, this was a special event since Lindo Mar has been in this category for the last 20 years.

RCI also provided an award for receiving the most positive comments from RCI Members to designated staff member Manuel Uribe who works in the front desk department.

The summer season is the best time to regroup and utilize that time to retrain staff in several safety areas that require certification as required by authorities.

Water purification system is getting installed in every single room. The lab has been testing the water and the quality is great and safe. The mattresses replacement program keeps progressing, and we are on target to complete the program this coming winter season. Telmex increased the fiber optic options for all properties located in South Puerto Vallarta and Lindo Mar was able to take advantage of this benefit as our connectivity is pretty stable.

The sidewalk between Lindo Mar and El Set was fixed by our staff. The area has been paved, see photos attached. Jacuzzi tail was fixed by the contractor, and it is in great condition, members and guests are enjoying it. The surveillance system was improved to assure the property is safe and secured.


There have been several improvements in the restaurant, new equipment for the kitchen was purchased, clay tile roof missing pieces were replaced, and wooden beans infested of termites were replaced.

A new presentation of room service menus were placed on the front of the room refrigerators to make information accessible should you feel like dining at your place.

Happy Member Comments – Message in a Bottle

“Love, Love this hotel. Small, classic Mexican décor that is maintained in pristine condition. The location on the beach with fabulous views of the entire coast. Small rocky coves on the beach with palapas. Their restaurant over looking the ocean serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Killer Happy Hour from 5-6 with one of the best margaritas ever...could only drink one. You can get bar and food service under the palapas on the beach.”

“When you drive up to the hotel from the highway it is difficult to imagine what waits for you when you head down to the restaurant which is by the beach. There is an absolutely beautiful beach with some rock out crappings and very nice sand and crystal clear water! We went for a very nice brunch and wish we could’ve stayed for days. The food was excellent, the service was excellent, the view was marvelous, and we hope to be able to come again.”

“The best restaurant service, we love the view is very beautiful, I recommend come here because the waiter are very friendly too, we love Puerto Vallarta, we back next year for sure....the food is excellent.”

“Everything at Lindo Mar was wonderful. It really feels like you are in Mexico and the staff was exceptional. The food at La Playita has always been great and this time was no exception. The staff could not have been more helpful in all areas. Our room was just right for the two of us and we enjoyed the view from our balcony.”




When is check in / check out time?
Use weeks are Saturday to Saturday. Check in time at Lindo Mar is 4:00 pm. Check out time is 11:00 am.

How do we use our owner time?
There are lots of options. You can spend the time at your home resort; you can exchange your time to another resort; you can exchange your time for a different time at your home resort; or you can deposit it for use next year. Believe it or not, you can even use next year's week this year.

How do we go about using one of the options?
Everything begins with a reservation and confirmation. If you own Floating Time, you first need to make a reservation with Trading Places International. They'll send you a confirmation. If you own Fixed Time, you need to contact Trading Places International and receive a confirmation before using, exchanging, or renting your week.

What if we want to exchange for another week at Lindo Mar or at another resort?
You need to contact Trading Places International or one of the other exchange companies and deposit your reservation with them. If you are going to another Trading Places resort, you can deposit your time with them at the same time you make your reservation.

Do we have to know which resort we want to exchange into at the time we deposit?
No. But, just like making your reservation, the earlier you request a specific location, the more likely you are to get it.

What if we can't get a reservation (floating week owners) at our home resort for the time of year we want to be there?
Just make a reservation for whatever time is available and then give it to TPI or another exchange company and ask for an internal exchange. That's when you exchange one time period at your Home Resort for a different time at that same resort.

Sometimes we can't take a vacation and other times we can take more than one week. Is there anything we can do about that?
There sure is. Through TPI or other exchange company you can save this year's week and use it next year along with that year's week. Or, you can use next year's week along with this year's. Also, don't forget you can often rent additional time at the resort where you're staying. It's a great way to extend your vacation. And, sometimes you can get better flight arrangements by traveling on a different day. If you do, just rent the additional time you need.

We own Fixed Time. Do we need to make a reservation?
No, not exactly. That is, you don't need to make a reservation, but you should let Trading Places know you intend to use your week or to exchange or rent it, as you'll need a confirmation.

What if we can't use our reserved week at all? Can we carry it over to next year?
No. At least, not without giving it to an exchange company like Trading Places first. They can accrue it for you and allow you to use it within the next two years.

When does my owner week expire?
Your owner week expires at the end of each calendar year. If you cannot use your week during that year, please call a representative to discuss your options.

Can a guest use my unit?
Yes a guest can use your unit. Just give Trading Places a call and let them know the name of the guest. There is no fee for your guests to use your unit.

Can we use only part of our week?
You can't reserve just part of a week. You must reserve a full seven days for each week of use, but you may be able to exchange a three or four day portion of your reserved time depending on the exchange company's rules. Of course, the number of days you actually stay is up to you, but you will be considered to have used all of whatever you reserved or exchanged.

We heard someone mention Bonus Weeks. What are they and how do we use them?
Some buyers at Lindo Mar paid extra for the right to use an extra week in any given year. In addition to the maintenance fee on their regular week, they must pay the maintenance fee for the year in which they use the Bonus Week, as well. Bonus Weeks can be reserved up to 9 months in advance.

  • Checklists to help them through the resale process including questions they may ask potential resale companies.
  • Information on how to identify scams and avoid commonly made mistakes.
