Well, for one thing I wouldn't be at work. That alone...

But, it's almost 3:00 in Puerto Vallarta right now so I'd probably be sitting on the beach, maybe munching some jicama or grilled mahi-mahi.

I came here hoping to find up-to-date info on the state of the Malecon reconstruction project. Anyone know how it's going?

We're leaving in about 10 days -- Friday the 11th through the 18th. Not nearly long enough...

We took our oldest grandchild last spring and it was a blast. That's another of the fun things about grandchildren!

My flight will be touching down at the Puerto Vallarta airport just about 24 hours from now. These last few hours at work are absolutely killing me!

We're taking our 5 year old grandson to Puerto Vallarta next week and I'm thrilled. Despite the fact that I just learned that the Malecon has been torn out and all the statues removed this week for reconstruction for the PanAm games in October! What's up with that?!? Guess we won't be wandering ther...

Ah, another fan of Playa Los Arcos! We've stayed there seven times in the past 6 and a half years. Up until our last trip we always took the AI option, largely because, although we aren't party people, we like to sit in the restaurant in the evenings listening to the water, watching the people pass,...

Yesterday I was sitting on the balcony of my room in Puerto Vallarta, looking at the sun on the water, the surf on the sand...

Today I was shopping for Thanksgiving dinner with snow flurries coming at me sideways and temps of 27F.

Is it too early to start counting down to next year?

We just got back yesterday. There's a closed sign on the pier, but I still saw the usual water taxis over there and smaller boats ferrying folks out to the larger party boats. Now, exactly how the embarkation was being handled I couldn't tell you. I didn't have need of a water taxi; just telling you...

An acquaintance who knows of our upcoming trip to PV recently said to me, "So, you will stay in the resort the whole time you're there, right?" Well, no. The hotel we stay at is not in a resort, per se; it's in the Romantic Zone on Los Muertos beach. But then I told her that staying away from PV bec...

Thanks for the welcome, Chris!

We get the same welcome when we arrive at our hotel -- "Welcom home, Mrs. O" and boy does it ever feel like I'm coming home...

Five days... and counting.

Where does this information come from? A quick Google search is just giving me exchange rate sites, not rule changes like this.

Last year rainy season seemed to last quite a while; it was still raining when we were there the first week of December. Very odd weather for PV. Didn't keep us tied down though. We still loved every minute of our trip and hated leaving. This year we're taking my daughter and her boyfriend (leaving ...
