3 friends and a week in Puerto Vallarta

My two friends and I just returned from a trip to Puerto Vallarta...we read many of your Virtual Tourist pages before we went, so I wanted to share our experiences in return!

Overall Puerto Vallarta was a cool place to visit for a week. There is plenty to keep yourself busy, and a heathy mix between "tourist" stuff, and truly local fare.

For the more adventurous types, there are also beautiful little towns to the North and South of PV - all within 45 minutes of driving.

Many people complained about Time Share salespeople - but we honestly never ran into ANY. I know, call it a fluke, but noone ever solicited us.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Nice beaches, bars, nightlife, neighboring towns are beautiful and largely unvisited
  • Cons:Touristy, rainy season is no joke :)
  • In a nutshell:Great for a week - be sure to rent a car and explore Punta Mita!
  • Last visit to Puerto Vallarta: Jul 2003
