Hi Gary,

I'm not sure on your question but we were just there and went to the zoo twice. We just caught a taxi around the malecon for 140pesos. Worked perfectly for us.

I loved it and will definitely go back!

We figured on $2200 CDN a month for everything...some of the numbers we used are on the high side and some might be on the low side. We don't care about a view - just needs to have furniture and 3 bedrooms :)

thanks keith :)

Hi everyone, We're starting to research moving to the PV area next school year. My husband would stay here in Canada so it would be myself and my 2 teenage daughters. Couple of questions I have (ok, might be more than a couple): Does anyone know of some Grade 9-12 schools - not looking for American ...

Not sure, it just sayus Canto del Sol Plaza Vallarta. Like I said it is a trade. All I know is that it is a two bedroom/ 2 bathroom suite. I'm sure it's the Canto then...I personally don't like the Villas - it's very spread out so you do a lot of walking. The Canto is a good hotel...make sure you t...

I forget the outfit we went with 5 years ago but I could look back and find it somewhere... they were great and were $75 per machine. They had brand new (at the time) Honda ATV's. We had such a good time that we came home and bought our own ATV's. :D

I've brought my laptop for 7 trips to PV - I've never had to lock it up - I just leave it on the table and it's never been moved or touched - not even an inch.
