April was a tough, kick-my-ass month and that's all there is to it. I went through May in a bit of a haze and now I've got a lovely week in Puerto Vallarta to look forward to. Friends gave us a week at a time share and I happened to have a companion fare for Alaska Airlines. So, for a pretty decent price, I'm going to MEXICO! My husband can't go so my adult niece is going with me. She has two kids and is always up for a chance to get away with or without them. We used to travel together quite a bit but then I got married and then she had two kids and life happened. This will be fun, just the two of us. We'll be there in June.
We'll be staying at the Raintree Regina. Wondering if there is a grocery store nearby? Or should we stop on the way from the airport and pick up groceries? Which also brings up the question, do we have a refrigerator or a kitchenette? Ha! Didn't think about that. We have a one bedroom and I assumed that meant at least a frig and microwave. Hmmm.
I'm also wondering if I should pick up pesos at the airport or do you recommend buying pesos at home before the trip?
I want to snorkel and swim (read that as floating in the water, bobbing in the swell) as much as possible. When I look up snorkeling PV, it's all about tours. Is there any snorkeling off the beach? It doesn't have to be great, just pleasant.
