Cucco's is one of the most expensive restaurants in town.

Hardly JR.

More expensive than Café des Artistes, Le Kliff, La Palapa, Kaiser Maxdimillien's, Vista Grill, Trio, River Café, etc. etc.???

I don't think so.

It had a very good, inexpensive breakfast option and was cheaper than CDO, Fredy's, anything around. I walked around and decided to eat there. It may have been a special, but it was great.

The 3 course meals I described above were during Restaurant Week at Anejo Limon.

They were each priced at 229 peso, which at current exchange rates is approx. $12 USD.

Those are all excellent places!! But most are higher priced and more a "fine dining" experience than any of the casual places I mentioned. But yes all five of those are worth a meal for sure.

Kaiser Maximilian has the white table cloth kind of atmosphere, sidewalk tables as well as indoor. Barcelona Tapas has the view (it's high on a hill). Trio is sister restaurant to Vitea which I mentioned, Centro, no view, great food. Archie's Wok is on a pedestrian block near the pier in Old Town, wonderful Asian-fusion, harp player, patio. La Piazzetta for fancy Italian, and yes including great pizza.

It might have been someone who registered to advertise or spam threads.

Could be that that specific post didn't break the 'rules' but s/he posted others that did. I don't know about that missing post but I did notice a spammer who topped a ton of old threads on the Mexico and SA boards. Maybe that was the one???

Nope, not that. I read the thread. Not a spammer or an ad.

curious. Did the post contain a personal attack? I've seen the editors cracking down more lately?

No. There was nothing at all like that. It was a straight-forward post talking about 5 of the nicer restaurants in Old Town Puerto Vallarta. No personal attack. No mention of any other poster. Not advertising. These:

Kaiser Maximilian
Barcelona Tapas
Trio
Archie's Wok
La Piazzetta

Since my Inn Los Cuatro Vientos includes a more than adequate (not great) breakfast I seldom ate out in the mornings on past trips nor do I anticipate doing so on my next one.

What are other PV forums that aren't monitored so seemingly harmless posts are deleted? Does anyone know?

My guess is the deleted post on this thread specifically was by someone who was advertising on other threads or something like that. I don't find Fodors monitors/editors to be at all heavy handed. You think things are monitored here -- Fodorites get away with a heck of a lot more than TA for example.

Fodors rules prohibit personal attacks. The new owners of the site (IB) are trying to clean things up and delete the petty spats.

meant to add -- I wouldn't decide based on this one post on this one thread. IME -- the only things I typically see that are deleted are blatant ads, spam, or cat fights. The monitors have to cover a lot of territory and the odd mistake (if that is what happened here) doesn't mean they are being overzealous.

"There is not good off-shore snorkeling in PV"
Not true. The postage stamp beach at the Lindo-Mar has decent off the beach snorkling with the added advantage of very few beach peddlers.

Not great at Lindo Mar either, but I guess if you're comparing it to snorkeling in PV in general it would win. Nothing compared to the Mayan or the Caribbean. Just not worth it IMO, but have snorkeled in wonderful places (still love PV though, you just have to be honest what is good there and not).
