Of Course the ocean (worlds largest) is rougher but lots of protected bays/coves to swim. As far a snorkeling by West coast standards PV's is not bad. Better in the La Paz area but PV is far superior to my home port of Zihuatanejo for this activity.

PS Among my stops this year (filling my bucket list) is Puerto Escondido a surfers paradise (not for me) & Holbox Island said to be the ultimate East side beach for diving/snorkel & powder sand. In between Oaxaca, lots of ruins, plus Merida.

Re: restaurants in PV~the absolute worst thing about it is trying to narrow down where to eat!! I'm always torn between trying something new and returning to my favorites!

Have a great trip, suze!!

JeanH, whereabouts did you stay? We have been looking at condos in Conchas Chinas and Mismaloya for Feb. of 2015 when we will stay for a month.

laurala, Mismaloya is quite a ways south of town, personally I would not want to stay that far away from everything for a whole month. Conchas Chinas, same thing, although some are closer in and not so terribly far UP the hills I might consider. Do you not want to be in or near town for some reason? Grocery shopping, etc. etc. will be much more of a chore from those more isolated areas. Certainly neither are walking distance. Are you planning on having a car?

laurala, we stayed at Selva Romantica. Up the hill from the city pier. Loved it. But, only if you don't mind lots of stairs. The pool is stunning. The condo was very nice. We truly loved it.

Other than the stairs, it was an easy walk anywhere on the south side.

sumbum, Well thanks for asking, and I definitely will start a (new and separate) thread for this most recent trip. Give me a couple days as I am in serious *culture shock* returning to cold Seattle from sunny PV

Honestly what I do probably won't apply much to others... I took 10 Zumba classes in 10 days at 5 different locations, rode the local busses around, ate at home with groceries from Ley's more than I ate out, did some shopping with the beach vendors at the fabric store and sweet shop, worked on my tan, and read 3 books -lol!
