Santa Claus picking us up? Oh and don't tell anyone?

We just got back from our 6th trip to PV. This time around we went for 10 days (awesome) and we swore to not do any TS presentations this time around. We brought our 2 sons with us so we were 4 people. We refused the presentation at Villa Del Palmar (Flamingos) so the guy refused to give us the "gol...

Don't go through Jesus for any tours. (Rude! Rude! Rude!)

We just got back this morning after 10 days in PV. We had a blast as usual at everything we did. However, we did get some very rude treatment from a beach vendor named Jesus. I know Jesus is probably a common name (in Mexico) but I will tell you where he works. First here is the story: We (2 couples...

I went through United direct (online) because at the time $400.00 round trip was way better then I could get anywhere else (without having terrible filght times or spending a night in an airport). We...

Remember the old saying.....

Fool me once, shame on you.
Fool me twice, shame on me.

Why in the world would you go back for a 3rd time? You gave them the benefit of a doubt and returned for a 2nd time and it wasn't any better.

How many chances do you have to give them????

OK, it is a year gone by now. Does anyone know what is in the location of the old "Lazy Lizard"?

What is it called and is it good?

Maybe it is still empty.

Lazy Lizard renamed?

I read a post about a month or so back about the Lazy Lizard being under a new name. I can't find that thread. Can someone tell me what it is called now? How is the food? The same? Our boys like to eat a burger there and we people watch while sipping on a few XX's

Thanks,
