PLANNING YOUR TRIP
Planning your trip ahead of time can eliminate many hassles. The best time to visit Puerto Vallarta is between Nov and April when there is little or no rain. In mid summer it rains most everyday from about 3:00 - 4:00 in the afternoon and is quite humid, but don't let that deter you from going, its less crowded and flights to Mexico are cheaper too. Prices always drop during these off season months, so you can save some money.
If you follow these few tips you should have no problems.
#1. BUY A GOOD BUDGET TRAVEL GUIDE:
THESE BOOKS ARE A MUST!
WAS JUST ONE SUGGESTION I COULD GIVE TO MAKE YOUR VACATION TURN OUT GREAT, IT WOULD BE TO HAVE ONE OF THESE BOOKS WITH YOU IN MEXICO!
CLICK ON THE BOOK AND BUY IT
#2. TRAVEL LIGHT:
Nothing is worse than lugging around two huge suitcases. I suggest a good size backpack.
#3.CARRY TRAVELERS CHECKS:
Travelers checks are the safest way to carry money. The most common and recognizable ones are, American Express and Visa. You can also get cash advances on major credit cards at most banks in Puerto Vallarta. I also highly suggest that you purchase about $50.00 u.s. in Mexican currency before entering Mexico. It is no problem changing money in Puerto Vallarta, you will find many currency exchange booths located throughout the city.
#4. DON'T DRINK THE WATER:
I would not advise drinking the tap water in Mexico. Most of the budget hotels provide bottled drinking water. It's not a bad idea to bring along some Pepto Bismal . It's better to spend the day at the beach than on the toilet.
#5. CALLING MEXICO:
To call Mexico from the U.S. you must first dial
011-52 then area code and number. (322 is the area code for Puerto Vallarta).
