Golden crown paradise

We heard from a couple who stayed here last year that they were going to do a major remodel of the golden crown paradise starting last spring. Have they started or finished?
We'd like to go back but not during a remodel.

Our prayers are with you at this very sad time. I can not even begin to imagine the depth of your grief, but hopefully in time the pain will subside and you'll remember all the good times and special moments that defined her life.
With much love,
JJ & JC

Lorrie,

What do we need to take/pack for a day at Sayulita? We want to have a relaxing day somewhere we haven't been yet, but isn't gonna cost a ton of $$. Is that where the famous Pie lady is?

Is Yelapa the place to hook up with the "Pie Lady"? I've read rave reviews about her over the past couple of years, and I think it's about time we try it out!
Thanks,

JJ

Hey Tom! I figured those last two lines would get a reaction from you! What's Dany doing in Punta Minta? Sorry to here so many others are gone also, but I guess one can only put in so many 16 hour days. They were all hard workers (& players!). I turned the big 5-0 in September. Don't feel much diffe...

Tom & Lorrie; I haven't checked out this board in a long time but since we're sitting here in Eastern Iowa on a snowed-in Saturday night, I thought I'd drop in and warm up! Tom, as a new member of the big 5-0 club myself, welcome! Glad you had such a wonderful trip, sure brings back great memories! ...

Awsome pictures, Sylvia! If that was "just" a storm surge, I wouldn't want to imagine the full force of a hurricane on our beloved PV!

I find one of the hardest things to do when we return from PV is going shopping back home and wanting to barter for clothes and jewelry - I look at the price tag and try to think what I would start the "bid" at in Mexico!!

Maybe the donkey could wear a thong too, so he won't look out of place!
