Re:Scuba & Snorkeling

You now have some alternatives to Chico's. There are a few dive shops that incorporate those diving and those who want to snorkel. I went with Pacific Scuba. I dove, while my wife did the snorkeling thing with another couple. Twin Dolphins and Vallarta Adventures also offer a similar package. Each c...

Re:Restaurants in and near Nuevo Vallarta

There are a number of restaurants in the Paradise Mall in Nuevo. The regulars like Mc Donald's and Domino's Pizza. There is a good Italian restaurant called Quido's. If there are 4 or more in your party, they will give you a ride back to your hotel in a limo. There is Brazil Restaurant. This one is ...

Re:Booze/Activity Cruises

You can book the day you get there or shortly there after. This way you can make your plans without the obligation, if the weather isn't going to cooperate.

Re:Swim w/ Dolphins & Las Caletas Tours

Just a warning, there are people very much in favor of the swim with the dolphins by Vallarta Adventures and those very much opposed. The choice, of course, is yours. One alternative you may consider is the Dolphin Encounter through Open Air Expeditions. When the whales are in the bay, you can combi...

Re:going to PV for first time

What used to be known as the BBG is a resort for adults. Going topless and wearing thongs are allowed at THEIR pool. As far as rumors, people cavorting in the pool etc.... this are just that. Rumors.

Acidophilus Capsules

We take ours at least 2 weeks in advance. This allows plenty of time for the good bacteria to build up in your system. We will also take it for at least a week after we come back. The bottle size we buy is about $23.00 a bottle for 90 capsules. That gives you 2 a day for 45 days. Make sure that you ...

Re:Food/Water Parasites

What we take is "ACIDOPHILUS". You will hear some people swear by it. I buy it at a GNC store or other natural food store. You want to remember to purchase the capsules that provide your body with "billions" of healthy bacteria. There are others out there that don't provide as much. You can also inc...

Rhythms of the Night

My wife and I attended Rhythms of the Night with my Bro-in-Law and Sis-in-Law. Our reaction was, What the heck is this all about?! I understand the story line, but the performance was not up to the hype that I had been reading prior to our trip to PV. I thought it lasted about 30 to 40 minutes. I di...

There is some pretty good snorkeling around the Marietas Islands. I did some diving out there and it was great. You can check with Vallarta adventures or some of the dive companies to check out rates etc.....
