My husband and I are definitely counting down. We get there on 25 Aug and can hardly wait. Seems like the closer it gets the less productive I am becoming...since all I think about is our trip.

Zip Lining

I am terrified of heights, but my husband really wants to zip line. Are there any that are shorter than the rest?

20 Days

I am getting so excited. We are leaving on the 13th for a week in PV. I am certain it will go way too fast. I heard the waves have been quite large. I am excited about this because I LOVE the sound of the waves when they are really big.

Mason,

I posted that back when the h1n1 was big. We were getting ready to go and all the media reports were telling us...don't go or you'll get sick. We've been to PV a number of times now and have never gotten sick. Sorry for the confusion.

Tom and Lori,

I know you don't know me, we've never met. I do however feel like I know you from when you used to post out here all the time. I've gotten so much from your postings. I want to let you know you will be in my thoughts and prayers. I am truly sorry for your loss.

My hubby and I have been to the DREAMS 6 times and absolutely love it. Like a previous poster said, it's not within walking distance though. $5 cab to town and then you can walk and explore to your hearts content. The beach is surrounded on both ends by giant bolders so the only way in is from the o...

Map of the Malecon Area

Does anyone have a link to a map of the Malecon area? We've been trying to figure out where things are and really can't find a good map. Thanks for any help you can give.

My family and I recently returned and the outlook looked the same for us. When we arrived, it was sunny every day (and VERY hot/humid) and would normally rain each evening. Really nice.

I got back last week from my trip and the weather was just as expected thanks to all for the "what to expect advice". Sunny all day every day until late afternoon and then beautiful thunderstorms.

Dreams is not adult only, so that may not be a good option for you. We've been there four times and absolutely love it, but there are some kids. I've never gone when kids ended up lessoning my experience, but they are allowed. I've seen many good review of GCP and it is adults only.

If you are worried about cost, I would definitely not use the hotel phone to call home. I did that the first time I traveled to PV and only called to say we got there safely. I'm talking no more than 4 minutes...cost me almost $100. I have an international plan on my cell phone and it's about 50 cen...

Weather in August

I know that August is the REALLY hot and rainy season, but was wondering...how hot is REALLY hot. The temps say 90-95, but I know the heat index makes a difference. Are the mornings still managable (heat wise). I figured we could go into town in the mornings or late afternoons (if it's not raining) ...

Booked for August

I am so excited!!! Even though I was just in PV in May, my husband and I (along with our kids this time), are going back to PV in mid August. I just couldn't pass up the deal. I paid about $500 more than what I paid for just my husband and I and this time it includes all three of our kids. I am so e...
