"Pat and Zo Ann in Puerto Vallarta" Puerto Vallarta by Pat&ZoAnn

Puerto Vallarta Travel Guide: 1,173 reviews and 2,013 photos

Between 1997 and 2003, we have been to PV four times.

In 1997, our first trip, we took our sons with us. They and Zo Ann stayed for 2 weeks, while I had to return home after only one week.

The second time, 1999, we went to visit la dentista (see our travelogue). Again, Zo Ann stayed 2 weeks while I went home after one.

In December 2001, some time opened up, and we were able to go on two days notice, and got an excellent deal at the Royal Decameron Hotel.

This last visit, April 2003, was both pleasure, and "business". When we went in 1999, we had a few activities that needed following up, they are documented in our travelogues.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Mountains close to the ocean, good shopping for artisan goods.
  • Cons:Lots of tourist traps, timeshare sales, don't let them know you're all inclusive!
  • In a nutshell:Very quaint, picturesque town.
  • Last visit to Puerto Vallarta: Apr 2003

    Puerto Vallarta is built on timeshare. We aren't annoying, we're doing OUR JOB, just like you do when you at your job DOING YOUR JOB, I hope someone encourages' people to ignore you at your job "and just keep walking whatever you do don't pay attention".
