I've been here since Monday and am amazed at how wonderful the weather is. I find that the humidity is really bearable, I've even been sleeping with the windows open and no a/c. It has been a little overcast or hazy on some days, and the clouds gather in the evenings making the sunsets unbelievable....

I think that Kat's answer was on point and your snarky, condescending answer about her posting habits/destination expert status was uncalled for.

It is very lovely in the daytime, but at night I find it to be too dark, it's not very well lit at all in my opinion.

From what I have gathered fom different sources, the gist of it is that the police chief's car was attacked by gunfire and grenades, caught fire, exploded along with a taxi parked nearby. While he escaped unharmed, a body guard and 3 children on the way to school and the mother of 2 of them were inj...

I don't know if it is new or not and I'm horrible with directions but it is in the hotel zone located north of the Fiesta Americana. I think it has a sister resort called Secrets and may be run by the same group that runs Dreams.

I think the posters on here are disgusted that you post nothing at all about PV, I frankly could care less about some party with people who go to Cancun. Post that on a Cancun forum, if you are still welcome. Until then, as my grandma used to say, if you can't say something nice, don't say anything ...

I would rule out Garza Blanca as it is south of PV proper and is a stand alone property. It is gorgeous, but I don't think too young adult friendly in terms of activities. I am not familiar with the Peninsula properties and Molina de Agua is in the south side/romantic zone on the beach within walkin...

It was a bus tour of 22 people from the Carnavale Cruise lines, Thursday the 23, that was on an ecotour in Nogalito, a small village 5 to 6 miles from downtown. No one was hurt, just shaken by the experience. Varying reports of exactly how many gunmen there were.

Was in there a couple of weeks ago and the situation is still the same as when you last visited. They have posted a sign on the doors saying they are not closing and begging for business, but the selections are horrid. One good thing is their fresh baked bread section, being as their regular bread s...

I have never seen it, but have not been looking for it either. Since stores in Mexico don't carry the brand I smoke, I have to buy Malboro gold.

No the fares are not per person, just the ride per zone.
