Playa Del Sol- Costa Sur

We have never stayed on the south side, so I am curious about any helpful tips or suggestions about the area (South side of Conchas Chinas I believe) are there any ideas or suggestions those of you who have stayed in th...

I have nothing to gain telling the World this..but it is an amazing, almost miracle type product, for all cuts scrapes, burns, bites...I have no idea h...

It's not a laughing matter- but could it be Bedbugs? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bedbug My friend got hit when we were in Vallarta, the only one out of 4 couples. His Doctor back home said they were bedbug bites. If I may suggest for the prevention of scarring find some "Emu Oil" and start using it...

I roast coffee...so you can guess what I left the first day or two on my bed with a note and a couple dollars.

They were all smiles the rest of the trip...and our room was made very very nice eveyr day.

Is that one week and including airfare? I am looking at 824 PP at the Gold Crowm Paradise for one week and includes airfare from Portland, OR. It sounds good to me. Any opinions about this? I think the GCP is pretty nice but don't know personally. We want to send the kids on a great honeymoon! Any ...

My wife has asked me, to ask all of you a question

What would dress requirements be at El Palomar, or the Vista Grill or Teatro Lemon? What is normal?

We only ate out at Porto Bello (SP?) when we were in Vallarta 2 years ago..it was wonderful, but we felt under dressed.

The first time I had it I was 19 years old (thats quite awhile ago) in Acapulco and it was grilled over wood chips. Can you say YUM!!! Was that the entire fish? I've seen that onn TV and mag...

I would call them when you hit town. Often they are flexible and if you specify the railing on the pool level (our favorite) then they can tell you what time to come. Sunset for drinks then a leisurely meal is our best. Also try The Vista Grill for better views and food (but more expensive). Cool- ...

Re: Best time to book?

I am going to send my son and future daughter in law to Puerto Vallarta for their honeymoon in November. I was looking around and the prices are looking good (in my opinion) if I book now. Does anyone have any brilliant ideas on how soon is too soon, or what the best time to book for November of 20...

And your reason for your comment on a post from 5 months ago was? No need to start stirring a pot here with your first post.
Sorry,
I was looking for fishing info on a site where there does not appear to be much. I apologize.
I'm like a bull in a china closet..I know.

So....if you are considering agreeing to a time share presentation - hold out for at least $200. I may try for $300 this year. That is my price for a morning of my time. $2000 - Cash- American- UP FRONT!! Just so they can hear me say "NO" 37 times in 4 languages, and a few other words. That's my pr...

So have any of you done this?

We are renting a jeep for the week and driving up to Hacienda Jalisco and going to do a little "off the beaten path" type thing for a couple days. (Coffee)

That's all well and good to say and I agree with you about tipping. I usually leave in the area of 20%. But don't forget, the Mexican people who are labelling others "cheap charlie" are the ones who, in their own private lifes, do not as a rule practice good tipping . Even they go out to dinner and...

Exchange fee's dock your tip that you give these folks.... Cash in your currency ASAP ($100 bill into Peso's) and start from there. Also- no offense...but the guy who said they may only leave 10% to servers, due to resort town prices you are being charged???? or those that feel you do not tip at AI ...
