This cozy jewel is owned by an italian chef and his mexican wife. Fresh pasta is made every day. Sauces are spectacular. It has been a long time ...

The Westin, hands down. Fun to hotel-hop and stroll the harbor. Visit the Marriott. Strolling from the Sheraton isn't very interesting unless you go all the way to the malecon via a busy highway.

We got our Curp cards in Tepic, Nayarit at the state office where births are registered. Our FM3s and passports were required for the very short process. I am sure there is a similar government office in Puerto Vallarta.

All-inclusive. Tips, etc.

I am about to experience an all-inclusive resort in PV for the first time as the guest of a friend. My friend says food, drinks, gratuities, etc. are 'included.' Do I tip anyone over and above the 'included?' How do I best enjpy the experience?

Our niece unfortunately ignored our advice in a similar situation last month. She was unable to board a plane bound for Mexico with her son until 20 hours later when she received the appropriate paper work. She was also required to produce proof of permission to travel with him before she was allowe...

I didn't mean to give the impression that Vista Grill was awful, Jennybean. "Ordinary" was a carefully chosen word. We live less than three hours up the hill from Puerto Vallarta and come to PV several times a year to eat well...defined by us as 'to XYZ with the price'... and enjoy the bay. Our Vist...

Both of our visits to Vista Grill were disappointing...ordinary, really. Without the view, it would be like many view restaurants in our world...nothing special. The food, presentation, amazing ambiance and service at Cafe des Artistes are spectacular. We have had several memorable meals there. Ask ...

We live in Tepic and slip down the hill several times each year for a gourmet fix. The food, service and ambiance at Daquiri Dick's are extraordinary. Dick's is to your left as you exit Los Arcos on Olas Altas. We have had only so-so meals at La Palapa and go there now for after-dinner drinks and so...
