We are staying downtown. I wouldn't mind hooking up with a couple of people and hiring a private guide. there is another place down there that does the guide thing I believe, maybe the hotel you are staying at can point you in the direction. It is a small town, but might be good to make plans ahead...

Re: San Sebastian

So wondering....should a person take a tour here or just travel here on your own?? We were possibly going to stay overnight but thinking maybe we would just do a day trip. there is a lot to see - Joe and his crew at the Hacienda can point you in the direction of personal guides for the day or other...

I found a great little place with the volcano wheel 10 steps off the Malecon - It is located on the north side of the bridge on the Malecon where it crosses the rio cuale. Amazing food- that is all i can say - some seriously amazing food! The guy is kind of an entertainer with that big knife as well...

I guess my point - use the current cc#- and when you return home, get them to issue a new card/new # (reported lost or stolen) Zero chances of your numbers being sold and used down the road on internet purchases. Every card I have not done this...has ended up showing up with charges down the road. B...

You can accomplish the same thing without the hassle of reporting it stolen or lost. I call my credit card company and tell them the dates I will be gone out of the country. Any charges that come in after that date are blocked by them as non-authorized purchases. Except 4 months later when a charge...

I'm of the belief that if you use a card in MX- you should report it lost or stolen as soon as you get back home, seriously.

It wasn't... and after 20 years of chewing Copenhagen (a Can a day for much of that) I quit co...

We are thinking we should spend a night in the villa. Do you know if it is hard to get in?? Do we have to make reservations quite a bit ahead of time? Always a good idea to practice the "sooner the better" theory, I'm sure. You know how that goes. 8) P.s. I have no ties to the place whatsoever, jus...

Haven't been to Vallarta in over a year- going in 55 days--which ones on the list are closed? Last year a young man we hired as a driver told us that a bar/restaurants in Vallarta opens and another one closes almost every day of the year. Not sure if that is true...but there seem to always be a lot...

Hey Sparky, let me tell you a little secret...99% of all travel related sickness has nothing to do with food posioning. People go to a different country, party non-stop, eat like crazy, drink more than they should and then do it for like 5-10 days in a row....oh yeah and then eat foods that are prep...

Is San Sebastian far from PV?? Looking to go to some out of town places anyway...What kind of town is it? It is a couple hour drive up into the mountains. Amazing little mountain town. I would venture there are 500-1000 residents...at one time it was home to 25K during the Silver and Gold Boom. We ...
