The concept of family is something so adhered to us since forever that we barely analyze what it really means. We have a conception of family we’ve been taught since we were little and that only meant one thing in those times: a dad, a mom and one or more children. But today our minds are more open and they see beyond the traditional or what society imposes, today we know that a family can be formed in many ways and that what really defines it is a group of people sharing a life together and most of all, they share the love they feel for each other.
Family is considered the natural and universal element of society and it’s so important because is here where education and values are transmitted, those things the human being is in such need nowadays and we must know that the quality of these values will not be dictated by the fact of having a traditional family but for the fact of having valuable people inside your family core that really care for your wellness.
A type of family that’s growing stronger every day in legal and social terms is the family with same sex parents, formed either by two men or two women that become parents to one or more children. This is a type of family very ingrained in our city, Puerto Vallarta is a permanent and temporary home to many same-sex-parents families and we’ve always been so proud of welcoming them, just the way we’re proud and excited to see they are getting the same rights of a family formed by a heterosexual couple.
A single-parent family is formed by one or more children and a dad or a mom. This type of family can originate from a separation, the decision of becoming a single parent or becoming a widow or widower and we think that is so admirable to form a family even without a partner as well as the effort a mother or a father does to make a life for their children.
We also have foster families, formed by children who are not biological descendants of the parents but have been legally taken by them and have found what they both have been searching for their entire lives.
We see with this that families come in all presentations, that the important thing is the comprehension, the communication and the values that originate between each other and that under no circumstance, any kind of family shall be discredited, simply because it’s not our role to judge what happens in other homes and the respect to another’s right is what will give us peace in the world.
This is something we know for sure at Puerto de Luna hotel; this is a space where you’ll always feel safe, confident and free of being yourself and where you’ll be able to enjoy the calm we offer, the beauty of our green areas and the happiness of being close to the ocean, all of this in company of your family.
