Looking for recommendations for second week of stay (August)

We're members of RCI and will stay at the Grand Velas the first week of our honeymoon toward the end of August. Originally, we were planning to visit the east coast and wanted to try two different locations/resorts, a week each, but now that we've chosen the Grand Velas, we're not sure where else to go. Can anyone make recommendations as to where we should visit the second week?

Thanks!

Have you considered just staying on at Grand Velas?

We found it wonderful for a two week stay last summer and are looking forward to going back again.

Thanks for the reply. We;re worried about getting bored, though. Is there a lot to do?

If you're worried about getting a little bored, you might try spending a week at Grand Velas and a week in town (Puerto Vallarta). Both wonderful in their own way. Grand Velas is a great spot to relax and be pampered and downtown Vallarta is fun, festive and you could visit many of the delicious restaurants that so many rave about. We're spending three nights in town before our stay at the Grand Velas this summer. Truly, the best of both worlds. Have fun! P.S. - We're staying at Playa Los Arcos in town because of it's proximity to EVERYTHING.

That sounds like good advice - we probably wouldn't want to stay another whole week anyway, so maybe 3-4 add'l days in town would be nice.

have you thought of staying in downtown Puerto Vallarta? Casa Isabel is a beautiful place with two great honeymoon suites. There are so many great restaurants in Puerto Vallarta and it would give you a different character completely from Nuevo Vallarta and Grand Velas. Congratulations.

I am going to book a room there - is it far/expensive by taxi to the GV?
