I think with the economy in the tank we are going to see a raise in crime, not only in Mexico but here in the US. That being said, my father who just came back from Puerto Vallarta, said things are fine down there and that the police presence is a little higher now. As long as tourist take the unusa...

Gonzzo,
I second your opinion of the Lindo Mar we went there last year for Sunday Brunch and it was excellent, great food and great service. We got a table right by the water.

Gonozzo, I just like the location and the people that own there are very friendly. I agreed with you that Playa del sol is a crap company. Playa Del sol bought Costa Vida to be used as an overflow resort to fill requests when Playa Del sol grand was booked. Playa sells people timeshares out at the g...

Dude, You must have never gone to Costa Sur, as far as it being a long way into town, I beg to differ. The bus stops right out front and you are on the south side of town in less than 15 minutes. I will give you that its an older resort but not poorly maintained. I would think it would be the perfec...

The other thing

I was wondering what are some of the tricks people here have used to get a cheaper rate on the price of airline tickets. We purchased two tickets to pvr in november 08 for this year and with the price of gas dropping now the price of tickets has also dropped. We called the first time to the AA-reser...

Airline travel is cheap - oh and another thing

I know times are bad but I just had to report that my daughter booked a flight for the first week of April - Round trip for 329 including tax.! That is the cheapest I have seen travel from Chicago/Ohare to PVR in years. She flys -non stop down there but has to change planes in Dallas for the homebou...

If I had to go with one

If I had to go with one restaurant it would be teatrolimon. We went there last year around the seond week of April and we were the only ones there and Bruce did an outstanding job of making us feel welcome. He was closing up the place for a little vacation at the end of the week so we just made it a...

Costa Sur

I know it hard to get a bead on a place just from other people's reviews. I guess it really bears down to just what you want in a vacation. Some people just want to lie by the beach, soak up the sun and never leave the resort. In a case like that then Nuevo Vallarta is the place that you want to go....

Playa del Sol- Costa Sur

My wife and I have been owners there for several years. It is an older resort, probably one of the first time shares in PV. Most of the owners are fixed week owners. PDS bought Costa Sur (formally Costa Vida) about two years ago to serve as an overflow resort for their floating week owners when you ...

A full stock pharmacy in PV

Hey All, My father-in-law asked us to get try and see if we can pick up some medicine for his eyes, (drops actually) while in PV. He says the prices in the US are outragious so he has been getting the drops mailed to him from Canada. Anyway I was wondering if anyone had a preferred pharmacy over ano...
