Hi: Any advice?? mmm....yes....while sitting in the lounge chair at the pool, you must have the correct method for ordering your second drink of theday or whatever drink you require. Simply look up over your sunglasses as the waiter/waitress walks by. Lift your arm up with raised index finger, ever so casual like you were brushing your wind swept hair back and say....."yes, I'll have another please".

Have a great time...and yes...don't wait for 13 years to go again. In fact don't wait 13 months. Bob

The PAcific is a little rougher so take something with you as a just in case like Bonine. In Mazatlan we got a taxi driver to take us to Ginger's Horses (they know who they are) and he was $50 per couple for two couples and we went to a restaurant, the Golden ZOne, toured the town and the church and looked at the light house. This was an all day tour. Also Ginger's Horses was $17 an hour per person (the taxi waited) and you could even run them on the beach. They are very well kept. Just an idea if you don't know what you want to do yet. We also went on our own in Puerto Vallarta.. Debbie

It is going to be very hot and humid. Always take or buy water ashore. The best lunch in Puerto Vallarta is at a little hole in the wall restaurant called: "Mariscos Polo."

They have the freshest seafood in town at very moderate prices. Polo was trained at "La Palapa" for years and now he owns his own little family-owned restaurant. Don't be fooled by the looks of the restaurant, this place is "Great." Have a "Pulpo" (octopus)burrito for me. The "huachinango con ajo" is great as well as literallly everything on the menu. I promise you won't be sorry.
