Greetings from Alaska! I have two daughters, ages 14 and 11, who have been in a Spanish Immersion program since kindergarten and speak Spanish fluently. I’m hoping/planning to travel with them for a month to Mexico this summer so they can speak Spanish language outside of a classroom and immerse themselves in a foreign culture. One option I’m considering is flying to Puerto Vallarta and then traveling north to a much smaller, much less touristy town along the coast. A friend recommended Guayabitos as a possibility, although I understand there are many small towns along the coast there that could fit our interests.
I’m hoping that we might be able to live(eat, sleep, etc.) very inexpensively with a non-English speaking Mexican family for the month, ideally one that has similar-aged girls so that my daughters would have friends to hang out with. We did the same in San Juan del Sur, Nicaragua about four years ago. Can you give me any leads/suggestions on how I might be able to make contact with a local family that might be willing to house and share breakfasts and dinners with the three of us for a month?
Another alternative I'm considering is doing volunteer work there at a group home or orphanage with lots of kid. The key for me is that the girls have something fun and interesting to do, all the while speaking Spanish and experiencing another culture. I’m unemployed and travelling on a very very low budget, so low cost is a very important consideration.
Thanks in advance for any ideas and information you may have.
My fiance and I want to get civilly married, on the beach, In Rincon or La Penita, on February 14th, 2009. We are renting a condo there from Jan. to April. We want just a small wedding, the 2 of us, with the witnesses.
Anybody has any tip on how to find a celebrant and a photographer? All we have seen on the Internet are big hotels where you can get married, rather expensive..
Any info would be welcome! Thanks, Mimi
This is the first time to Guayabitos for my wife and me. We are traveling with another couple from Canada. We are looking for fairly simple accommodations but with pool access. Most everything else is optional.
We have traveled in Mexico lots and we wanted to see this area that friends have recommended.
We can also book a place for a few days to look around for other places to stay. We are very flexible.
hi! I'm a single mom thinking of making a trip later this year (with my 2 teenagers) and was wondering if anyone could suggest a good place to stay - its got to be clean and reasonably priced (I don't need 5 star tho'!!) but I'm a little nervous booking something unknown over the net without a recommendation!
We are interested in moving to the Rincon de Guaybitos area but have been unable to find any information on the internet concerning medical facilities in the immediate area. We would appreciate it if someone could provide us with particulars as to where the closest medical clinic and hospital is located.
Hello! We have been to rincon de guayabitos by bus last year from the states and we would like to go back with our motorhome this year (We would be close to Arizona around beginning of february) If anyone who intends to go there at the beginning of feb.or have tips for such a trip we would greatly appeciate help!! many thanks, Paul
