What to do? What to do?


I am planning a vacation to Puerta Vallarta at the end of May / Early June....

Right now we are debating between 2 options...We could rent a condo for 7 nights (that is the set amount it rents for) for $700. It has all the amenities of a regular condo. We have rented from this condo previously and it is nice.

Our other option is more pricey, we could stay at an all inclusive resort for 4 nights for $1100. This price is for 3 adults and one child. Now in this case all of our food and drinks are included, plus the hotel has entertainment. We have also stayed at this hotel. We enjoyed this option more than the condo, but not sure if it is worth the shorter trip and the higher price. On the other hand though, with all the food and drinks, it may not actually be that much more As we have also visited Vallarta a few times the shorter trip may be NBD. I assume i i could expect to pay at least $25 (and that is like fast food only or cooking at home) a day per person at the condo.

Any thoughts or opinions?

I'd take the all-inclusive. Only because I don't really want to cook while on vacation, and taking 6 people out to eat for 3 meals a day can be expensive. BUT, it is only you, Cesar and Daniel. I doubt you would spend as much on eating out. And you'd probably end up spending just as much for the all-inclusive. :)

I'm no help at all, am I? LOL! :)

Gosh, that's a tough one. I think you're right about the cost ending up to be about the same. So your deciding factor is whether or not you want to cook (and occasionally eat out)and stay longer in PV or be free of the cooking and enjoy your four days in paradise. I love PV sooo much, I would go for the seven days at the condo. Remember you could always flip a coin and let fate decide for you. :)

I say take the 7days and enjoy PV. I know that when we had visitors in Puerto Vallarta and they stayed at all inclusive resorts..they never left, well not ever but your sort of forced to stay in because of food and what not. I would agree with Jackie, go for the 7days. Eat in for dinner often because that tends to be the most expensive and have FUN and relax!! Gees i cant wait to go back to PV
