      Weekend Getaway in PV

      Puerto Vallarta Nov 7, 2016 at 11:50 AM

      Hi VTers! My husband and I are going on a quick weekend trip to PV this weekend. I'm usually so ahead in my planning, but haven't had time to do a single thing yet. I had a few questions I was hoping you might be able to help with.

      1. What is the best way to get from the airport to the hotel? I have contacted the hotel to see if they can arrange transportation and am waiting to hear back from them. Is taking a taxi safe? I saw this tip from 2012 and was wondering if it was still valid. Taxi FROM the Airport: Taxis Puerto Vallarta, Mexico Tip - VirtualTourist Was also wondering if we should just go ahead and hire our own car.

      2. Is there a good place to exchange money? Or should we do it in the states before we leave?

      3. If there was 1 activity you could recommend we don't miss, what would it be?

      4. If there was 1 restaurant you recommend we don's miss, what would it be?

      Again, our trip is short, we arrive on Friday afternoon and leave Monday afternoon so we will probably just be relaxing most of the time. We haven't had a real vacation without our child in 5 years!

      We like the beach, we like to snorkel, we like to learn about the local culture, listen to live music, and love to eat Mexican food! Thank you for any suggestions!

      Cancun airport departure tax

      Mexico Nov 21, 2016 at 1:18 PM

      Hi, we are travelling to Mexico on 10Dec2016 with British Airways and have read conflicting reviews on whether or not we will need to pay a local departure tax of around 900 pesos. Some reviews have said it will be included on our ticket whereas others have said we have to pay it when leaving Mexico. Does anyone know the truth about this? Even the official Cancun website doesn't mention it! If we do have to pay it locally do they definitely accept sterling?

      2014 Hurricane Odile Update

      Baja Sep 18, 2014 at 5:01 PM

      For anyone thinking of going to the Baja (La Paz, Cabo San Lucas, San Jose del Cabo or Todos Santos) especially the cities mentioned, in the upcoming month, consider changing your plans. The airports from Loreto south are closed to civilian traffic and only airlift and rescue flights are authorized in the wake of Hurricane Odile.

      Loreto (LTO) is expected to open by 09/19 as they did not sustain as much damage as the southern cities. The "Cabo" airport near San Jose del Cabo is not expected to reopen for a month. The Cabo control tower has been said to be non operational.

      Tropical storm Polo is heading north at this time but is beginning to turn west so hopefully Cabo will be spared additional rain and wind.

      We have at least one active VT member in the middle of the heavily impacted area. Hopefully all is well as most of the area has no power or means of communication as cell, landline and internet service is out.
