Fun in the Sun

Wonderful! Nothing like a good time in Paradise to even out the winters. We like Los Mertos for a cervesa and or lunch, there are some great pit stops there, nicest people in the world imho! Once when I stopped in P.V. from the ship I went to las Caletas, that was amazing too, the open bar, entertai...

Re: Violence in Sayulita & Puerto Vallarta

My girlfriend's parents live there; they love it in Sayulita, this sounds like a very unusual report the safety issue that is, I would really check it out for validity, this is a peaceful area from what I have always heard and seen. I've been going to P.V. since the late 80's and never seen any prob...

Melia

My partner and I just returned from Melia (AI) Puerta Vallarta by the Marina where the smaller boats dock, it's just across the street. This area is different than the hotel zone or downtown, wide streets, not as many cars, many Americans (American Hospital?) and Canadians, easy walk without as many...

Airport to Hotel No Show

I booked a transfer from the airport to my hotel (Melia) through Vallarta Discovery, aka Mexico Tour Adventures online prior to my arrival 4/16. They were supposed to meet me at the airport but never showed up. I went to V.I.P. at the airport and they said the company went out of business and they h...

Thank you

That's my fav movie of all time, thank you so much for sharing that, I had never seen it before. By the time I got to P.V. in the 80s it was quite different yet the feeling is the same then as it is today when you get out in the jungle! I enjoyed the Las Caletas tour and I can imagine how Houston fe...

I can relate

The 80s is when I first hit Puerto Vallarta for a week vacation! Great pics, exactly as I remember it. I was there in April '10 and I'm already "home sick."
