any suggestions?- I am not finding much info online.

Thanks in advance!

Re: Costa Sur

Got my count down going....once the holidays come and go...its vacation time. We are fixed week owners...2nd week in April so we got Easter this year. Gonna be crazy crowded.

IS it quiet in here? Is PV Quiet?

We have wondered if it may be slow in PV this Winter. I have not been in the forum since last year, and it seems a lot slower in here than I recall last year leading up to Jan 1st (we went last year about the same time as we are planning to go this year..even though we have considered not going...ev...

Fish Taco's ask for a few extra lime wedges to squirt all over the fish and the cabbage and peppers/tomatoes or try asking for Leamo's (spelling?) if they have any a wonderful twist for sure. Wonderful, absolutely wonderful! I love fish taco's 0ne month and a few days to go. whoooo hoooooooooo :lol:

Staff at the Fiesta Americana said they were running 25-30% occupancy and the only thing keeping the doors open was 3-day conventions every couple of weeks. At the Bancomer PCU presentation, we sat with a rep from Lemmus RE sales who said new sales were down over a third from 2007. so maybe :?: a g...

An all inclusive resort that doesn't supply soap and shampoo? Sounds odd to me..

No - actually I just like to make things like that up, to throw people for a loop.

Dear Glacier Roaster I would agree with you if we arrived unannounced, but we did call ahead and make a reservation. The least we were entitled to was a "I'm sorry you had to wait." Therer are too many good restaurants in PVR that treat customers as customers. I understand...and would probably say ...

We tried the Vista a few trips ago, they made us cool our heals for about twenty minutes (we had a reservation) then seated us at a table that had been empty during the same time period. Haven't been back there since. FYI, I'm sure otehrs can attest tot his. Many restaraunts make it a point to not ...

We had a nice brunch in town and then hopped the bus to Boca de Tomatlan. Went down towards the beach, stopped at the first place and got a palapa right on the beach and pulled out the cribbage board, ordered a round of Negro Modello's and next thing you know it was almost dark. 8) Lots of locals, e...

Mayan People, maybe?

We found a guy doing just that and selling some really really cool and authentic artisan made "Stuff".

I think that was the name.

Great coffee, it is in old town near the Rio Cuale bridge.

I'll post more info if I can find a flyer or a reciept.

very relaxed. Nice pair of Golf shorts and a nice collared shirt with a pair of leather type sandles seemed to be the norm but there were people that were more dressed up. It's a very casual place- make sure you go out one night down to Marks place (1/4 mile walk ont he same street) it is wonderful....

So far the new ownership isn't getting good reviews for their service around the 'net. Just thought I should share that before you book ...
