Refreshing water, warm sand, delicious food and great shopping -- a beach break in Puerto Vallarta is just what the doctor ordered!
Well organized and enjoyed our tour guide. Disappointed with his recommendation of Jimmy's jewellers and the leather store - prices at leather store were inflated. Designs at Jimmy's not up to par and the silver felt very light. Did not feel comfortable buying from Jimmy's. We also did not like the beach where Blue Shrimp restaurant was as we were hounded by beach vendors every 5 mins even though it was supposed to be roped off. The calarmari and coconut shrimp was yummy at Blue shrimp. We opted to make our own way back to the ship as we wanted to have more time to explore and to walk along the Malecon. Found many interesting stores along the Malecon. Leather store called Rolling Stones - lots of purses, shoes, boots, wallets to choose from and very reasonably priced. Also felt safe with police presence in every block.
