But we ended up in this little fishing village that was really awsome, we down a hill of stairs to get to the village and there was a great beach and then we ate at this little local place on the beach, it was wonderful!!!

PVR has more of that "old world" charm, something that Playa doesn't have. Even though I LOVE Playa and the beaches and water can't be beat in Playa I think it's nice to venture out to different places! Thanks for the pics! BTW, I was in PVR in early May!

Jevans,

Yes we did travel south to get to the fishing village and I think that was the name we came up with as a possible for the village from the map we were looking at. It was a great little village, one of the very best days that we had while we were in Puerto Vallarta. Thanks for letting me know that was the village though, we were curious!!!

More on PV:



I really don't know how their cars last very long on the southside of PV. The roads are all made out of the rocks from the beach it looked like and they were terrible, lol...

We did really enjoy PV, it definately wasn't Playa by any means at all, but it was nice to see a different part of Mexico...

I was looking on the computer for average wages for people in Mexico and I was shocked to see that the majority of them make between $200 and $500 a month American Money!! And these people work so hard!!!! So please everyone, if you are traveling to Mexico and can, tip these people!!! I saw people at our hotel early in the morning and then saw the same people still working late at night!!

I went to Puerto Vallarta in 1990 and stayed at the Buenaventura! It was lovely then and I'm glad to hear that it still is going strong.We really enjoyed our trip but I have come to love the Caribbean water.I wish life offered opportunities to go everywhere.Great trip report...I really enjoyed your pictures.

Thank you for sharing your photos! No, PV is not Playa, but PV has an old charm that can't be matched. It truly is a beautiful place, and I miss it.
