I watched the fares on kayak and then booked direct with the airline on line. I could have saved another $100 or so but missed the boat! I kept hoping that the fare would continue to go down and didn't book fast enough. But we're still pretty happy with this fare. We also booked a condo separately from this. We needed a two bedroom this year as Des's sister is coming with us. Des also loves to cook so a condo makes sense for us.

Sherry, when are you going to be there and are you staying at the same place as last year? Would be great if we could hook up again.

We will be back in Puerto Vallarta, our home away from home, on Nov 2nd! My wife and I are going to spend a week reconnecting,re-energizing, sun bathing, having fun, drinking, eating great food, and "making whoopee'..NOT in that order!!!!!
We LOVE PV and cannot wait to get off that airplane!

Hi Joyce!

We arrive on Feb. 23rd until March 9th! This year we've rented a condo that's across the street from the Tropicana. Des's sister is coming with us so we've rented a 2 bedroom with a full kitchen. We haven't seen this condo but we've heard good things so I'm sure it will be fine. We'd love to see you guys again! When will you be there?

I can't believe how quickly summer has slipped away - now the big countdown to PV!!

Say Hi to Fred! We'll talk soon!

Ellen I am still telling people my story about how I missed meeting you guys!! The next time we were supposed to meet our new friends convinced us to go on the Pirate ship instead. That was my one rip off (for me) in PV and I'm so sorry I didn't go to the meeting!! Oh well, I'll be back again this year!!! Traveling with the same friend from here, another girlfriend from here and the new friend we made in PV who happens to be a local girl as well. Funny how that works!! Not sure where we'll stay but thinking Canto del Sol. Would love to stay in a condo again but time will tell. I figure there are enough people on this forum we'll find a place to stay already as long as we get a flight!

I'm making my first pilgrimage to PV on Nov. 1 - 15, 2008. I haven't been outside of Canada, really, since I was about 6! Never been to Mexico or any place warm n' sunny, either!

I'm taking myself for my 21st birthday (Nov. 5) and doing the trip totally solo. It was the last place my father vacationed and he adored it and would love to see me making the trip there! I'd love to catch some of the Dia de los Muertos if at all possible, too. Beautiful looking celebration, and probably very cathartic!

The first time I went to Mexico i was 20. I went to a little place called Pie de la Questa outside of Acupulco. It was amazing!! I have been in love with Mexico ever since and Puerto Vallarta is my favorite. You will have an incredible time and travelling alone will not be a problem. It is so friendly. There are solo travellers everywhere in PV. My girlfriend, my sister and sister-in-law have all travelled solo for years and love it!!

Have a great time!!

[quote="cherokeethunder"]My hubbie and I are going October 12 through October 23, 2008. This will be our first trip, we will be going with approximately 4 other couples. We are staying at Club Meza Del Mar. Any info would be greatly appreciated.......[/quote]

stayed next to club meza del mar last year - yes, it is an older location
and not a 5 star, but we visited with many meza guests last year; most
in the 50-80 yr. old range who were annual guests and love it.
hotel is rite on beach and has beachfront snackbar/bar with great service.
we arrived early last year and purchased cocktails and snacks from their
beachclub for a couple of hours while waiting for our room to ready.
very nice.

so envious of all of you that seem to get ALOT of vacation time off of work. Or maybe you are retired? Either way, I wish I could spend more than 1 week a year in Puerto Vallarta. It is in the budget $$$, just can't get more than 1 week a year off of work.
oh well, I can always live vicariously thru Tojol!!

Booked and waiting. We leave Feb 29 for a glorious 16 days in the area. Our first stop is for 8 hights in a really great bed and breakfast in Rincon de Guayabitos, then back to PV fro the rest of our stay at a condo in the Zona Romantica. We travel to Mexico every year, (fingers crossed) with my sister in law and her boyfriend.
