  2. Hola Leslie, I would like to introduce myself as Sam Leonard, the proud owner of Hacienda Mosaico located in beautiful Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. www.haciendamosaico.com. Richard Salley is here with me and has suggested that we would be a good 'fit'. Your work is beautiful and if you look at my antiquated site and think you might be interested in having a retreat here....I would love to hear from you to discuss possibilities. I have many desirable dates available in 2018/19. I look forward to hearing from you. Best, sam
