At the beginning of 1998, seven Master Masons from three masonic lodges which used to work in Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco under the Scottish Rite requested their demit to found a York Rite lodge in that city; the main reason was to have an open space to all those American and Canadian brother who travel tho Puerto Vallarta with touristic purposes and desire to visit a regular lodge compatible with the language and rite.
After meeting the requirements of the York Grand Lodge of Mexico, F.&A.M. those Master Masons attended the affiliation ceremony in the City of Guadalajara under the sponsorship of Atemajac Lodge No. 29 in the middle of 1998.
Finally, on December 9th 1998 the Past Grand Master Terrance O' Rourke Maldonado anoint the temple and grant the dispensation patent setting the lodge officers, from that day Puerto Vallarta regularly worked until obtaining its patent on March 1999 in the 137 Anual Grand Communication.
Puerto Vallarta Lodge No. 34 works the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month in Spanish, however, the lodge turns its language as a courtesy when an English speaker attends the meetings. The lodge has conferred grades to brothers coming from Canada, Netherlands, Switzerland and the United States as well as having dual members from Grand Lodges located in those latitudes.
The dress code is casual clothes due to the warm wheater; however, in special ceremonies, the members wear formal attire.
