My Trip To Puerto Vallarta

Sister Lori here, I wanted to tell about my recent trip to Puerto Vallarta. I have been before and so have most of my friends that I went with, who are all ex postal workers, except one poor soul who still is working there!
We like to stay in the Romantic Zone where the Malecon walkway along the shore is, and we can walk to shopping, restaurants, grocery store, etc. So except for the Taxi from the airport, we walk to everything! Our condo this year was Molino De Agua, brand new last year and it was very nice. We were on the 8th floor and the view from our balcony was great!

This is a view of the infinity pool from our room. It was wonderful to swim in and lounge by. I read 2 books while there! There is a swim-up bar where a restaurant nearby will deliver to us drinks and appetizers.

Here is the master bedroom which I was lucky enough to get to sleep in.

One of the outdoor balconies, the other had a built in BBQ and small refrigerator:

There was a large beautiful kitchen. We did not cook much as we like to try the restaurants out! Although we did make our own Pina Coladas and Margaritas a few times!!

We did little shopping while there, last trip too much money was spent so we were thrifty this trip!!

One of our favorite restaurants is Andales where we enjoyed mango margaritas and guacamole, chips and salsa.

This is a photo of all 6 of us plus a friendly waiter!!

We stopped to watch some iguanas feeding:

A beautiful sunset!

Another favorite restaurant is Archie's Wok. This was my dinner, a sweet and sour chicken dish.

One dessert was a lime cheesecake, I had a molten chocolate brownie with vanilla gelato. Yum!!

Another night we found a new restaurant that will become a favorite called Joe Jacks Fish Shack. I had these fish tacos.
We had a wonderful week there, but had to return home and back to the grind!!!!

OMG. I love Fish Tacos and I want those!! How wonderful this trip was, I am so glad you had fun! I want to go sometime, but of course Disneyland is first next spring and I am going for sure since I can't go this time. I do want to know about the tips though. When we went to Mexico, all included, the tips were a problem, and we spent several days without toilet paper and towels. Not good when DH has a problem for a couple of days...
