I'm finding it hard to believe that it's been 4 years since we were last (and first) in PDC. Not that we've let the grass grow under us, but we have defaulted in many of the instances to simply going back to the UK and spending time with my family.

Anyway, we're ready to come down again for a week this summer, and with quite a bit of the wife's family in tow this time. Most of us will be staying at Maureen and Joe's Casa Manantial, which I won in the 2010 Coco's fundraising auction (thanks again to Joe and Maureen for providing such a great prize year after year!).

However, we may be as many as 10 people with the kids, so I've been looking for a smaller (and relatively inexpensive) place in Playacar Fase II for any overflow. I've found Condominium Manantial, which sounds at least like it shouldn't be too far away from Casa Manantial. It's appears to be owned by a chap (who I suspect is also from England) named Mark Goodall. Does anyone happen to know him, or the condo in question?

We've booked non-stop flights from/to LAX on Virgin America, with a current fare of a little over $500pp including the taxes and fees. I don't know if that's good or not. It certainly doesn't seem good compared to fares Mexicana used to offer (I miss Mexicana ), but it is what it is. And it's only about $30 more than some flights with significant stopovers and/or weird routings.

Don't have very much planned as of now. The only definite is making sure I can get to Coco's for kitten cuddling on the Friday we're in town.
