It's a shame...

It's too bad this forum lost its life. I really miss some of the reports and conversations about PV. Most forums have those members that feel they have an obligation to advise newer, or less dominant ones. That usually is the beginning of the end. I miss being there, even if just in memory or vicari...

I guess nothing stays the same...

I first started reading every posting on this forum back when PV.net was busy and vibrant. My, how times have changed. I am now looking forward to my 5th trip to PV. Last trip was 1.5 years ago and I recall this forum was pretty lax then. It is too bad, I used to enjoy the experiences of the posters...

Up until our last visit in February, I had Blue Shrimp High on my list of to do's but I am disappointed to report that that is no more. When ever we went for dinner at the original downtown location, the food was well presented, high quality, good quantity and awesome service. Not sure why, but Blue...

Mild Winter

Somehow it feels better when it's cold and miserable while I'm sipping cervezas on the beach in PV. This winter is totally messed up here in Western BC. The daytime temps are above freezing. Our first trip to PV we received a message that our friend was thinking of us while he's driving at 20KMH in ...

Can't wait!!! Our first dinner, as always, will be at the Burros Bar. Our friends that live in PV for the winter usually pick us up from the airport. It has been a tradition that we buy them dinner and drinks on the arrival night at the Burros Bar. It just so happens that we stay in that neighborhoo...

Well, we're down to 104 sleeps now. Today there is white stuff falling from the sky. That means that we are getting more anxious to get back to the beach.

Pictures can only add to the anticipation, I have been looking at many!!!

We have done Rhythm of the Night, two trips ago. We have more "local" things planned and re-see in Old Town and area. We want to get out to Mauricios again, Mismaloya, Boca, plus hit some usual establishments and attractions. We need to see Roberto for some sliver too. We are looking forward to stro...

Let The Countdown Begin...

Although to many it may seem far too early to be counting the days, for us it is all part of our vacation. As of today, it is 149 days until we arrive in PV. We are booked at Hotel Eloisa for 2 weeks and could not be more anxious for our 2 weeks in paradise! This will be our 4th trip to PV but the f...

Kathy and I have been to PV 3 times, each time in March/April. The weather seems to be pretty much the same every day. It may have rained a couple of showers but by no means have we experienced anything like a thunderstorm. We have had a few here at home in Canada. I enjoy the "Shows" that Mother Na...
