That's true but not actually why the dance is called salsa. To make salsa you combine a number of ingredients any way you choose, there is no "recipie" and no two people make it the same. In salsa (dance) you combine vatious steps and moves as you choose, there is no set pattern and no two people do...

It wasn't until I actually did it that I fully realized the benefit of flying in from Tijuana. It's not just cheaper , it's a domestic flight ! :D I don't know what you guys are talking about 8) Customs ?? Immigration ?? Sounds like international travel to me. The Volaris run from TJ to PV is basica...

Not to be rude, start a fight or insult, but... these people are simply trying to make an honest living and what you propose your son may do sounds a lot like prostitution to me.

" unfortunately he may need to sit thru a presentation for some cash."

I know a lot of girls who do the same thing.

I was just there last weekend, rates varied from 11 to 12+ in shops and restaurants with restaurants giving the worst deals. Still I couldn't care less when a full meal at Mariscos Tino's with 2 apps and 2 drinks cost me $16 :roll: A few pesos here or there isn't gonna kill me. As for everyone's pra...

Have my dancing shoes ready to go! The only place you will want them is Jota Be, all the rest are uneven cobblestone floors :shock: I just got back last night and while I certainly didn't get to try every place for dancing I did go to JB, Andale's and La Bodegita. (Roxy was closed when I stopped by...

ATM at airport?

I only have 150 pesos to travel with, will I pass an ATM exiting the airport? I can exchange some money here if I have to but the rate is pretty poor.

By this time tomorrow I will be there ! :lol:

TJ - PV for $78 RT

Yes it's 4 AM. Sleepless, I was playing around on the net and for God only knows what reason I poked around Volaris a bit. There are rumors running around that there are some rediculously low fares if you really search. There are, I just bought a round trip ticket to PV in March for about $78 US. Ba...

I know swing basic step and am told that most of the moves cross over. It's amazing how similar many of these partner/ social dances are, been told we only have two feet and there are only so many ways to move them 8)

Thanks, I'll check those out. I danced a little in TJ yesterday, the style is a bit different but the girl could follow so it went well. In Ensenada they dance the same as we do in SD but Tijuana is different ? Wonder what I will find in PV :shock:

Just to follow up, I have seen the girl from PV a few times now and it seems likely I will have a "date" for my trip in January. She promised I will be an expert on PV Gent's Clubs by the time we're done. :D

Manzanillo, Colima.

Is this too far "off the beaten path" for a PV forum ? Does anyone know of a better group to learn about the place? I'm guessing there is a bus that connects Manzanillo and PV, a cab driver in TJ told me it's 3 hours by car. Does anyone know? I can get the best deals on airfare via Volaris to PV so ...

Salsa ?

Counting the days now, Jan 14th is it ! I have a list of restaurants and clubs to check out from these forums but wondering if there are any dedicated salsa clubs ? It's OK if they are not touristy, I can hold my own in a "locals" club. Had the "gringo" tattoo removed from my forehead.

Find a tourist with cash, offer to pay for dinner (or boat trip or tour or whatever) with your cc and let him give you the cash ;) Old trick we used way back before ATM's 8)
