Re:taxi fair to the Mis mayloya

I'm not sure what taxi fare would be, but we took the bus to Boca de Tomlatan today for 4 1/2 pesos and it makes a stop in Mismaloya.

Re:hotel costa club punta vs getaways

Hi! My partner (39) and I (34) stayed at Costa Club last year and are returning next Friday. When we were there last winter, there were guests of all ages at the resort - younger and older adults, and some families with kids (I don't remember seeing any really little ones). I do want to say though, ...

Re:COSTA CLUB PUNTA ARENA

That would be cool, but I think we might just have to wave at each other in the airport. Our flight leaves Toronto at 2:55 p.m. and arrives in Vallarta at 6:55 p.m. I don't know when your flight is, but I wouldn't be surprised if the shuttle that takes you to the airport is the one that picks us up ...

Re:COSTA CLUB PUNTA ARENA

Hi Lynn, You're right, there is way more to do and see in P.V. than you could possibly cover in a week. What constitutes a "must do" activity depends on what kinds of things are of interest to you, but I'll tell you about a few things we've done or know about. At least it will give you some ideas. F...

Re:Carton of smokes?

I don't remember precisely but I know it was really cheap compared to Ontario where I am. I have a vague recollection of single packs being about 27 pesos or $3 Canadian.

Re:Currency Exchange rate in PV...

We travelled to P.V. last year (going back on the 27th) with traveller's cheques. The Casa de Cambio booths are all over the place and we found they gave a fairly good exchange. There are so many, we found one close to our resort where we could walk over every day or two and exchange our cheques as ...

Re:COSTA CLUB PUNTA ARENA

My partner and I stayed at Costa Club Punta Arena Feb. 27 - Mar. 5, last year and we're booked in there again this year for a week starting Feb. 27th. (Starting to count the days here!) Obviously we liked it because we're going back, but I'll describe our experience there so you can decide for yours...

Re:Best place to get condoms

It is definitely a good idea to have your own supply of condoms when visiting P.V., especially if you anticipate being "active" with people you meet locally. I read on another site that they are relatively expensive for Mexicans and as a result a lot can't afford them. While there, we were surprised...

Re:Drinking the water, ice cubes?

We were in P.V. last February-March and we drank bottled water and juices, provided by our resort. We also didn't worry too much about ice or fruit served at our resort, but were a little more careful downtown and on the beaches etc. (don't know if we needed to be?) and we had no real problems. We d...

Re:Vanilla??? Where is cheap place to get it?

You will see vanilla on sale all over among the vendors, corner stores, etc. It is usually more expensive in these locations. Make sure you find a grocery store where the local people shop, like the mega, for the best price.
