Have a great time. A month is a nice amount of time. I was in PV my very first trip to Mexico way back in the early 90's.

you should be ~~ for tom42! it's fabulous.

weather is GORGEOUS, town is not too busy. it's not quite "season" yet, a few popular restaurants still closed from the summer.

i took a walk around Centro Sunday afternoon (ok it was raining a bit that afternoon) and was the only gringa to be seen.

i think so Percy, i think that's where Hacienda San Angel B&B and restaurant is?

honestly i don't get up that way... i stay in Zona Romantica near the beach, that and Centro are more my stomping grounds.

baldone~ No, I don't. I mean "el Centro". That is the correct name for downtown PV.


katybird~ Yes. I typically come for 2 weeks & twice a year, but this is the first time I was able to get 4 weeks together off from my full time job in Seattle. Thanks for asking. It's a lovely feeling.


Percy~ neither Corona or Dos XX... Modelo is my beer of choice ;-) bought a 6-pack up at Ley just this morning.

Okay suze ...there is no such thing as bad beer !!! ( I think).

Timely , just watched a movie this afternoon filmed in Puerto Vallarta, " The Night of the Iguana ".

>>The Night of the Iguana <<

I watched it too - on TCM. Hadn't seen it for years. Hard to imagine that movie put PV on the map.

Have a great month!

janisj~ I don't think it was the movie itself, more that John Huston, Liz & Dick and their crowd "discovered" PV and started hanging out here as a vacation retreat.

yestravel~ Si, the statue is still in front of the restaurant by the north bound bridge over the Rio Cuale.
