Title - Puerto Vallarta Safe and Waiting for You!
Whenever traveling, it is natural to worry about one's safety. Rather than relying on media hype from news stories, which leave us with misconceptions that are simply different from what is reality, a more trustworthy source is from visitors like myself and residents of an area. For that reason, I share with you my own experience as it relates to safety in Banderas Bay.
Despite rapid growth and development in Puerto Vallarta and its surroundings, the region remains one of the safest areas in the country. A big part of this is the fact that it is still a small pueblo where neighbors know one another and watch out for each other. One doesn't walk down the street at any time of day without encountering a friendly smile or even a "hola." Dining out at night at any of the best gourmet restaurants in Mexico or the local taco stand, the ambience is friendly and comfortable. You'll feel secure in the pursuit of any activity you enjoy.
I have been here for a month now. My family joined me for a vacation along Bucerias beaches that were delightful and uncrowded. In the last two weeks I have been spending my days visiting owners and their villas. I travel solo and fetch taxis to my destinations—the cabbies are as friendly and accommodating as ever. In the evenings, I walk the Malec³n where locals and tourists stroll in harmony. Sculptures artfully installed at intervals encourage you to dally awhile. Music in the Zocalo prompts you to listen while catching the aroma of roasting corn on the arms of the balmy evening air. I park myself on a convenient bench to try the kernels with salt, chile and lime. The Mariegalante heads for shore as I await her fireworks to illuminate the night sky. It is dark when I arrive home a pie . This has been my routine on many of my visits and this time it was not different in any way. Puerto Vallarta is a happy place I cannot wait to return to and I invite you to experience.
Wherever we wander, our best protection is projecting a smile, exuding self-confidence and remaining alert to what is happening around us. Harmony fosters peace.

If youâ€™ve been watching the news lately, youâ€™ve probably heard about the violent crimes taking place near the U.S./
Mexico border. Weâ€™ve been paying close attention and are pleased to report that so far, Puerto Vallarta has remained
very safe. It is more than 1,000 miles away from Tijuana, after all!
Nevertheless, itâ€™s always a good idea to keep personal safety in mind whenyouâ€™re traveling. Leave your Rolexes and bling-bling diamond earrings at home. Guys, that thick
wallet in your back pocket is an easy grab for pick-pockets. Ladies, keep the purses small and tucked securely under your arm.

I just wanted to share this with my fellow Dreams brides just for info. If anyone else gets info for flowers or anything, keep posting it!
I'm thinking it's not worth paying that much extra since I get my bouquet for free with my package, so I'll probably look into just white roses, and maybe keep the lisianthus.
