This was our 10th visit to PVR. We booked this flight and hotel through Travelocity, which had the best price for what we wanted. It was a blend of some repeated experiences combined with some new ones. HOTEL-we stayed at Fiesta Americana for the 6th time. Beautiful beach and pool area. 50 peso taxi ride to town. Only thing I noticed different was many more "Vacation Club" reps in the lobby. A polite "no thank You" takes care of it. FUN STUFF-we saw the Carnival parade on Feb 18. Quite enjoyable, but a little strange as we watched from the area of the square by the church. After the parade started on the Malecon, it came onto the street, backing up traffic coming into town. After about 15 minutes, the police halted the parade at the end of the Malecon to let traffic flow for a while. Most people around the square assumed the parade was over, and left. After about 10 minutes the parade resumed on the street. it eventually turned into a mixture of parade and traffic. ALSO, we went to a performance at THE PALMS cabaret on Olas Atlas. it was Miss Conception, a female impersonator. Great fun and reasonable cost. RESTAURANTS-we returned to Cafe Bohemio, Mariscos Polo, our "special" night at Casa Isabel and tried new places like Posta, Cocoa Tropical, Fusion Gourmet, and Langostinos. BEST SUNSET HAPPY HOUR-in our opinion were the drinks at Cocoa Tropical, one of the reasons we decided to have dinner there. WEATHER-was cool and overcast for 4 of our 8 days, but we still had fun and came home with a tan. Hope to return in December for the Festival of the Virgin. Saw it 2 years ago, and it is a different perspective on PVR. Safe travels to all.
