    • Something to do on Christmas Day?

      Guadalajara Dec 24, 2014 at 3:19 PM

      I am interested in a tour to do on Christmas Day. Just two adults, no children. We are staying right outside of downtown, Guadalajara and are looking into lake Chapala or any of the shopping tours to Tonala, etc. It doesn't have to be a tour either if we can get there ourselves by taxi--just want to make sure it'll be open on Christmas Day. Any suggestions would be MUCH appreciated. Thank you!!

    • In search of ... inflatable bed in Puerto Vallarta

      Puerto Vallarta Dec 4, 2014 at 10:17 AM

      We will be visiting again this year but this time need an extra twin bed. I thought a decent inflatable might work out well but figure Costco probably would only carry a queen bed as it does at home. Does anyone know of any stores that might sell these that I can contact and preorder for pickup? We will again be staying in Zona Romantica just south of the river.

    • Best Resorts / Hotels for 20-something singles to stay

      Puerto Vallarta Aug 19, 2014 at 1:01 PM

      Hey All,

      I'm traveling to PV with a couple of friends in two weeks and we're having a really hard time figuring out which AI resorts or just hotels in general will cater more to young single people rather than families or older couples. The only two places we came up with that were reasonable were the Golden Crown and one other one. After looking at the pictures and videos it seems like its almost all older couples or older singles.

      Why are there no longer tours to Talpa de Allende?

      Puerto Vallarta Jul 18, 2014 at 7:25 PM

      I was looking at tours to Talpa de Allende, and the website says the tour is temporarly unavailiable. It says it is unavailiable during the rainy season, mid June-October. Though I checked the tour once in April, and it said the same thing. Than I went out of curiosity, to see if it would let me book for a date when it's availiable, and it didn't. It's telling me to choose another tour. And there are other tours that are also seasonal, but it lets me go on them no problem.
      Why are there no longer tours to Talpa de Allende? Is it because of safety issues, or is the road out? Does anyone know?
      I read reviews of this tour, and people said it was great, so IDK why it suddently got cancelled.

      My wife and I are moving to PV and will be driving a vehicle from Texas at the end of July. We have read that we are allowed $75 each before being charged 16% duty for values of goods beyond that amount. Does that imply a charge of 16% above what is allowed (2 pairs of binoculars, laptop computer, etc.) or 16% above anything over $150 of value?

      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.
