We visited Puerto Vallarta 3 days after the hurricane hit. We were on a cruise aboard the star princess. I want to assure everybody that the town is fine. there were some all inclusive resorts that did not have hot water or electricity yet, and a few shops that were closed. but all in all they worked very hard and had the town in pretty good shape. I imagine by the end of this week you will hardley know they were even hit. as for mazitlan and cabo,the hurricane did not even hit their. we snorkeled in cabo and had a great time(yes the water was clear).
That's great to hear. I've seen pictures of the town, and it looked devastated, with washed out streets and damage to houses and hotels. Didn't see any shots of the hotels in the Hotel Zone, so not sure of what happened there. Did you get to see the Malacon (the street right in fron of the ocean downtown) where all the artwork was? If so, how did that look? We are scheduled to be there in April.
