Ten Days Next Winter in PV and SMdA

Jump to last reply

For some time my wife and I have thought we might want to spend part of our winters in Mexico after retirement. We figured we'd best get started checking around for likely spots, though retirement is still a ways off.

We'd like to go in mid February or March and considering splitting our time between PV and SMdA, two places we haven't been before. How much time should we allocate to each spot? I thought an even split might be best. It is simple to get to PV and to leave from SMdA, but how should we get from one to the other?

We tend to prefer medium sized hotels with a local flavor, and like to sample the local specialties at lunch and dinner. We like colonial architecture, rain forests, hiking if it's not too hot, some beach time (although an old codger, I thought I might take some surf lessons). We love exploring old ruins but gather that is not a strong suit in either location. I think we'd rather stay in town than at a resort. Budget is not a big deal.

Appreciate any advice!
