Hi there, My husband and I are headed to Puerto Vallarta for 4 nights followed by a week in Sayulita next Tuesday, May 6th (Yay!!) I used to travel to PV with a girlfriend frequently, but haven't been in 20 years, so very excited to see how much it's changed.
1) If we are interested in doing one of the food tours, do we need to book it in advance or can we do it once we're there?
2) The Power Walking Tour sounds right up my alley and think this might be a great first day activity (if I can get my hubby up out of bed...or maybe I'll just do it on my own). I just e-mailed to see if it's available that Wednesday but do you think it's too hot at this time of year to do that tour? Also, I noticed the website said to bring walking shoes and water shoes. If my really good walking sandals are also water shoes will that suffice? I'm trying to pack light, although I will also have a pair of Salomon "amphibious" hiking shoes that I'm wearing on the plane that I could also wear.
3) San Sebastian also sounds amazing! Since we are only in PV for 4 nights, I'm wondering if anyone knows if it's possible to do this tour out of Sayulita so that I don't have to spend an entire day that could be spent in PV to do this. Or do you think if we were to rent a car for a day in Sayulita we could do it on our own? I like the idea of going with a tour for this one because I'm guessing you get a lot of information from the guides that you wouldn't otherwise. I can also ask this in the Sayulita forum, but it doesn't seem to be very active.
Thanks in advance for any information you can provide. I've been lurking on this forum for months, have JR's maps printed out, a list of a billion restaurants to try, LOL, and a bunch of other tips. I realize we will just barely scratch the surface in such a short time, but it's just an excuse to return!!
