    Have you been to Puerto Vallarta? Not doing an excursion there. What can we do on our own? Is there a town to walk to? Anything to buy? Thank you!

    We did a cruise there in 2014. You get off right in town. One popular thing is to walk to one of the resorts along the beach and get a day pass. They aren't private beaches -- there are vendors everywhere. But there are chairs and umbrellas and waiters. The nearest hotel is right across the street from the terminal and they continue for many blocks in a row.

    So glad to see/read that. We're doing that exact tour next week on our land vacation. Dh is so worried about crime (despite everything I read from travelers and expats that we'll be fine.) I'm hoping the Pitillal tour in particular will show him regular life in Mexico is not that bad. Not to mention we are big foodies and food tours are frequently the highlights of our trips.

    We love PR. Take a city bus for 40 cents from the port to the old town on the Mallecon. Beautiful. Lots of food and little shops. Wonderful people. Amazing place.

    Pesos. Just some coins but the drivers give change.
