Those sound like fun trips! I was kind of hoping we'd cross paths in PM this year, though. We're full converts from Playa- close to the airport, affordable condos right on the beach (invaluable with a toddler- quick beach access is SO great), and calm, uncrowded beaches. Good food, too- and in a more compacted area (also invaluable with a toddler).

We will miss you and Mickey next year, hopefully see you two again, if you are in Kamloops look us up.

We will be in Playa Feb 19 to Mar 11,2016 the first four days in Isla.

Just out of curiosity- where do you guys look to find rentals on Isla? We were considering it this year, but I couldn't seem to find anything in our budget in town.

Really depends on what you are after.
There is the usual Expedia, etc to search hotel rooms, although not all are listed. There are some reasonable albeit basic hotels, many right near Playa Norte. And then sites such as Homeaway for private places. Prices really range depending on location,etc, but of course there is also not the same volume and competition so prices certainly reflect that. Also many are ocean front so you pay for that. We pay twice as much per week for a house on Isla as we do in PDC, ( although I get a great deal in PDC) hence less time in Isla. We share with friends so that helps, but if we had to foot the bill ourselves on Isla it would be a small apartment or a hotel for sure.

Would have been nice to meet up in PM...we really have migrated there from Playa now for all the reasons that you have stated...we will return to PM and maybe just a day or two in Playa if we are in QRoo...

I agree with you about the beach situation Dan. I actually am quite concerned about it. We just get too good a deal on the villa, and we get to pay it in CDN so that is hard to beat. Will also have the kids joining us for a week so we need the space.
