If I wish to pick someone at GDL at night is it a safe drive to A hotel in Tonala late at night and how long?
There is a brand new club that just opened with a stage, cabaret and a piano bar. Thought it was Act III or something but can't find it. Thank you
I have a layover from 5:20am until 9:55am, with two kids. Are there any decent places to nap in the terminal, or are we better of trying the casa grande hotel for a few hours? Or first flight is only 3 hours so sleep is a must.
Until recently, I've been emailing "the manager" at El Dorado to make plans for a May 2014 wedding. The restaurant appears to be under new ownership and closed (for remodeling?). The website has been suspended and the emails bounce :-( Anyone out there have current news about El Dorado, the new owner ad how to contact them?
I have been trying to contact Ana Paula at El Dorado Restaurant for a week. I was told by a local florist that the restaurant appears to be under new ownership and is being remodeled. Can you confirm? Is there a new contact?
Thanks for any information you can provide.
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! ;-)
Is it safe to walk around the main plaza, the one with the cathedral and palace, at night? I am assuming the buildings are lit up? Going in 3 weeks.
Anyone know of places to rent by the month? My regular place got taken.
Looking to spend up to 3000 pesos per month.

I have been to Puerto Vallarta several times and traveled by air. I want to drive down if is safe, I know about entry and driving only during the day , would this be an adventure or a nightmare ? Thanks All
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.
Is it feasible to take a bus from Palenque to Barra?
whats the best time ofseason to go to Puerto Vallarta?
Has anyone stayed at Sea River Towers and how was the experience? What were your highlights of your travels to the region! TIA
can I get to the westin hotel by bus
I'm the maid of honour for a wedding in November in PV. We are all staying at the Now Amber. The bride would like to have a spa afternoon with about 10 girlfriends the day before the wedding.
Does anyone have suggestions for me for a nice spa? Or any other nice things to do?
Appreciate any info. I know lots of people marry in Puerta Vallarta so I am hoping that someone else has done something similar?
We have a place to stay for 2 weeks in Manzanillo, and then plan to take a bus trip to Puerto Vallarta and stay there for a week before we fly out of PV. We have been to both cities and are looking for some advice for our last week road trip to PV. Is there an interesting inexpensive place to stay a night or two between the cities? We love to snorkel, have our own gear, like casual safe environment with locals, speak very little Spanish. How is the bus travel? Will they let us off in between? Any info about a clothing optional beach on the way. Our trip is planned for Feb 20 to March 13, 2013.
I wish to fly to Puerto Vallarta and take a bus to Cuyutlan, Colima. Is there a bus to Manzanillo (with stops in Cuyutlan) that leaves directly from the PV airport? Does it have frequent or infrequent departures? If the bus only leaves in the AM, is there a hotel right by the PV airport where I could stay for a night, taking a bus to Cuyutlan the next morning? Thanks in advance for the assistance!
Hi All: My husband is disabled and he travels with a guide/service dog. Does anyone know of hotels in PV that will accomodate the dog? Thanks!
We have recently visited PV, staying at the Tropicana Hotel. We loved it! Sadly, however, they refused to accomodate my husband's service dog. I am assuming that in Mexico there is no guaranteed access to disabled people/service dogs? Or is it just this hotel? I would appreciate any input, as we are keen to vacation there again, but do not enjoy traveling without the dog. Thanks!
Well not a baby exactly, a 2 years old kid.
What can we do in Puerto Vallarta with kids? Any attractions like a zoo or water park?
Any recommendations are welcome.
My boyfriend an I are planning on driving from Vancouver B.C. to Puerto Vallarta in January in a motorhome, is it safe to do so, and if so what would be the safest route to get there
Hi, we are coming down to the PV area for 3 months in January and will be brnging our dog. We brought him last year and thought we had all the necessary paperwork ,etc. but then got told we didn't and it cost around80.00 for a vet certification at the airport. Do we have to see a specal vet to get the right papers. Our vet just wrote a letter saying he was free of all fleas, ticks, etc and that all his shots were up to date. Just don't want the same hassle this year. Anyone else run into this problem? Thanks
We are heading to PV in late October and since never have been there at that time of year I am wondering about weather! Is it humid at that time of year? Thanks!
Hi. Will be taking a long vacation to PV in Sept. Like to rent a nice house/apartment. To do this, I want to stay in a decent hotel, budget. Stay in the hotel about a week looking for a nice area and a decent apartment/house. Can anyone give me any hotel websites? Thanks, Mick.

Hi. I am considering moving to PV for work.... I play professional online poker and am unable to do that in the US.

It looks like we need to look for wifi hotspots in PV, because the hotel we are staying charges an high-fees for using their internet connection.
Is there any cafe or location where we can get free wifi?
I know there is a bus from Puerto Vallarta to Zihuatenjo, Elite line, does anyone know how long the trip is, and what does it cost.
