      I am traveling to Puerto Vallarta in June, staying at Now Amber, looking to rent a car so I can get back and forth to Marina Vallarta and Vista Vallarta golf courses. First question is, any concerns for crime/violence having gringo with clubs in rental car, looks like Vista is up in the hills a little bit? Second, any major reasons why I wouldn't want a car. Have not driven Mexico before, but I am confident I can figure it out without, pending no crazy suprises. Thanks, Steve

      puerto vallarta maps on VT, Q evidently deleted earlier (?)

      Puerto Vallarta Mar 7, 2014 at 3:07 PM

      hi --

      this discussion began in the travel forum from TomS148, who wanted a comparison of two hotels in puerto vallarta, mexico -- the playa los arcos hotel and suites beach hotel versus the plaza pelicanos club beach resort. currently this Q&A sequence is at Playa Los Arcos OR Plaza Pelicanos Club - Puerto Vallarta Travel Forum. my response to his Q is the fifth one.

      as you will see if you read my response, the VT site/map for a search for "plaza pelicanos club beach resort" brought up a listing for "plaza pelicanos grand beach resort" (i could not find a listing for "plaza pelicanos club beach resort" on VT) and listed the address for the "plaza pelicanos grand beach resort" as calle diego rivera #120, a location about nine or ten blocks east of the beach on the south side. however, that listing also states that the hotel is in the "las glorias" neighborhood, which is on the beach about 10-20 blocks north of downtown. obviously this hotel cannot be both on calle diego rivera and in the "las glorias" neighborhood.

      the expedia and travelocity sites both show the "plaza pelicones club beach resort" as located at calle jose clemente orozco #121, which is in the "las glorias" neighborhood, north of town, and also on the beach. therefore my final conclusion was that the VT map associated with the "plaza pelicones resort" -- whether "beach" or "club" -- was incorrect, showing as it does a street address that is in a neighborhood that does not include that street. i summarized all of this info in my response to tom's original inquiry.

      then i posted a new Q (entitled "VT maps, puerto vallarta, mexico") in the travel, technical help, miscellaneous, and MAG forums asking VT staff to take a look at the confusing and inaccurate results i got from VT when answering tom's original Q. the originals of that new Q have evidently been deleted from all but the miscellaneous forum, maybe so that VT staff could try to untangle this mess. i haven't received anything from VT telling me what happened to that new inquiry, so i just don't know what to think.

      to be on the safe side, i think i will post this Q in all three of the remaining forums, and we'll see what stays and what disappears. i have no objections to duplicate Qs being deleted or placed in a more appropriate forum, but i'm perplexed as to what happened in this case, and evidently so are several other people. i know this all sounds horribly tangled, but i hope everyone can follow what i've tried to explain. (by the way, i still haven't gotten a VT staff response to my original "VT maps, puerto vallarta, mexico" inquiry!)

      at any rate, i will post this Q (entitled "puerto vallarta maps on VT, Q evidently deleted earlier (?)" in each of the forums and see what happens.

      thanks for your patience, everyone.

      turtle sanctuaries in or near PV

      Puerto Vallarta Feb 10, 2014 at 5:17 AM

      hi --

      does anyone know about turtle sanctuaries in or near PV?

      in writeups about hotels on multiple websites, i see references to turtle sanctuaries in or near PV, but i haven't been able to find details on location, relevant dates, price, etc. does anyone know of any tours that go to turtle sanctuaries or specific hotels/locations that have turtle-related programs? i did a google search on turtle sanctuaries but still couldn't find enough info to act on, except for a reference to a 10-hour expedition that costs $400 USD for up to 10 people (vallartainfo.com/tours/astri...). i could swing the $40 if nine other people went but don't know how i could arrange to be on a tour where nine other people were already booked.

      i will be in PV during the last two weeks in may and am staying on the south side. i have been to PV many times, can generally find my way around PV, am familiar with the bus system, and speak enough spanish to communicate in a manageable (tho admittedly rudimentary) way.

      thanks very much!

      condo at olas altas #246, old town

      Puerto Vallarta Jan 29, 2014 at 8:37 PM

      i am considering renting a condo for two weeks on the third floor of this seven-story building. for reference, daiquiri dick's is in one corner of this building. i believe the actual name of the building is the plaza dorada, and the condo owner's name is ted; his last name starts with O (i don't want to publish his full name over the internet). his wife's name starts with B.

      does anyone know anything about this condo or this owner? the description on other websites sounds fabulous.

      any reason i should not go ahead with this rental? i will be there in the last two weeks in may.

      Traveling with a Service Dog

      Puerto Vallarta Dec 30, 2013 at 9:05 AM

      My husband is disabled and we travel with his service dog. Most restaurants in PV graciously welcome us. The problem is with hotels. We are very fortunate in the US to have the Americans with Disabilities Act, a Federal law which guarantees access to disabled people and their service dogs. Sadly, in Mexico, disabled people have no such protection. We are looking for a beach front hotel in Old Town which will accept our service dog. I have emailed a few which I know of, but I do not know all of the hotels in that area. Does anyone know of such a hotel, where the service dog will be accommodated? Many thanks for any help.

      6 days traveling from D.F. to Guanajuato, San Miguel Allende, Guadalajara. Is this to much?

      Guadalajara Nov 10, 2013 at 4:23 AM

      Hi there from Portugal!
      I had an amazing time in a trip to México' 2012 (D.F. > Oaxaca > Palenque > San Cristobal de las Casas) and I'm going to return in the second half January 2014!

      My plans: 2 weeks. First one: arriving México D.F., fly directly to Guanajuato > San Miguel Allende > Guadalajara.
      Second week I will fly from Guadalajara to Cancun; I want to go to Tulum (didn't "study" yet this second part of the trip).

      I Need your help, please, in the first part of my plans. How many days in each place? Should I cut some of them? Or is it good like this? Do you suggest some B&B or Hostel (medium budget). Cleanliness is everything and also the location. Don't need luxury, just a good spot to sleep.
      Thanks in advance!

      Also, I will be glad to help you in the other places of Mexico I've been! ;-)

      safety, best time to travel to PV, B&Bs?

      Puerto Vallarta Jul 20, 2013 at 9:29 PM

      hi, all --

      first, i've seen several forum Q&As on safety in PV, but i can't seem to find anything recent that is applicable. i've never felt unsafe there, but is it still generally safe for tourists? i've been there many times (but not in several years), am used to the bus system, and generally know my way around downtown, the romantic zone, and the northern hotel zone. i'm used to traveling alone and have traveled alone to PV several times. other than precautions i would take in any big city (don't go out by myself late at night, for example), are there any areas, hotels, restaurants, etc., that i need to avoid?

      second, i want to go when i can get a lot of sun and it doesn't rain during the day (except for very short periods). however, my budget is limited, so i don't want to go during the "high season," when hotels especially are very expensive and crowded. when does "high season" start and end? how desirable are sept, oct, and nov, or should i wait until spring?

      third, does anyone have recommendations for bed-and-breakfast places that might be reasonably priced?

      i speak rudimentary spanish (i can get around, ask where things are, order food, etc.) and plan to stay for at least a week, maybe two.

      thanks!
