Mexico trip 2013. First time to Puerto Vallarta

Hello Everybody! I know it has been a while since i log into here. Life has been crazy. The work slow down up north here has put a lot of stress into our lifes. But neverless everything is good now and we are planning our 5th Mexico vacation for 2017 . In 2012 we went to Barcelo Palace in Riviera Maya. That was a 5 star A.I. resort. we enjoyed our stay there. Food was very good and the best place to snorkel right at the beach. Unfortunatly the camera was damaged on our first day . So we dont have a photo report for that.
For the 2013 Mexico trip we wanted to try different places . So we chose Puerto Vallarta. After months of research i took a gamble and went with a small Resort. We had the choice of 1 week Royal Decameron or 2 weeks at the Samba Vallarta for the same price. It went to a family vote and everyone chose the Samba Vallarta Resort.

Heading to the airport

Vienna got Super excited

Flight got delayed.

She didnt like the news about the delay

Airplane arrived

Flight was uneventful

I love Puerto Vallarta Airport. We went through Passport and Costums in 20 minutes and the little shark tank. Nothing compared to Cancun. We were quickly put on a 9 passenger bus and of to the resort in 15min.

Check in was a breeze and we went to our room to change. the room was fine . Need a little renovation. But we will not be spending much time in here anyway. We just need the A/C to work thats all that matters.

After we changed into more comfortable Clothing we head down to the open air Buffet. It was around 8pm already and the place was packed with locals. We had trouble finding a table. It was hot and there was not much food to choose from since we were late.That was not a good start to our Vacation. Did i gamble too much on this resort? Nobody was happy at that moment. The thing was the theater was right next to the buffet and all the people sat there watching the performance. People who wanted to eat had no Table. We were standing there for at least 10 min. waiting for a table. The only Asian people in a sea of Mexican . One of the Waiters realize the situation and quickly brought a table and four chairs for us . We sat at the Entrance of the Buffet. At least we had a table and we could finally eat. Everyone was hungry by that time. It was Mexican theme night . So most of the dishes were actually authentic mexican . And i swear that was soooooo delicious. With better mood we took a walk around the resort and a short walk on the beach. After that we went to our room to call it a night. The girls were too excited still. They couldnt wait at all.

Blowing up all the Air Mattresses in the room before sleeping. LOL
