    Like I posted over in the Newb section, I'm new to the boards.

    I would like to get some information on PV and the surrounding area. Like things to do while we're there on a site visit and eventually for our wedding. My fiance, Jaime (JaimeLynne) and I have got a rough itenerary for our site visit coming up(Aug 20-24th).

    Any help will be GREATLY appreciated!

    Welcome to the forum Martin.

    I'll be going to PV this fall for my wedding as well. So far we got a fishing trip planned and we will be doing the canopy tours. Never done them before but I hear they are amazing!!

        Thanks for your help. I would like to know where there is to do while Jaime and I are there for our site visit. I guess like hotels to see for the actual wedding and also for places to stay.

        We're really looking at the westin for a place to stay (both on the site visit and for the wedding) and the Mayan for the actual cerimony. But just in case those places don't work for us...where should we look? I know there are dozens of places to have the wedding and/or to stay...I just don't know where to start.

          Since you're staying at the Westin you'll definitely go to Nikki Beach because it's on site (club). Beautiful place with beds and pillows on the beach, drinks aren't cheap so if you wanna save $$ keep a bottle in your room to get tipsy before heading down to the club . . .haha. If I stayed there that's what I would have done.

          My standard PV endorsements are: Zoo Bar - don't miss it if you're party people. Barcelona Tapas for excellent food & views. Rhythyms of the Night dinner tour to Las Caletas OR day tour to Las Caletas

          For wedding sites try to contact a few places in advance and see if you can set up meetings. Besides what you mentioned, maybe Velas Vallarta, Dreams, Las Caletas, Marriott Casamagna....our PV resident can probably give you more info.

          Have you considered a wedding at a private home? That was what we were doing until we found Las Caletas. I have tons of that info saved if you want it.

              Does it have to be Puerto Vallarta or are you willing to look north of PV?

                  We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!
