About 1 block from the building's main entrance is a bus stop. For about 50 US cents, you can take a bus down to the Botanical Gardens, Mismaloya (made famous by Liz Taylor and Richard Burton's torrid Puerto Vallarta affair) and to Boca de Tomatlan, where you catch the water taxis to the secluded, bohemian beach village of Yelapa.
Old Town is definitely the place to be. You will feel like you are really in Mexico, unlike some the places with walled off beach areas to the north. Why go to Mexico if you don't want to experience anything Mexican?
Here the signature cobblestone village streets that crossed the Cuale River from the northern downtown, extend into the traditional Mexican part of the old town and where you really enjoy Vallarta.
You can walk to most places but you can also take the bus or taxi
The condo must be kept clean.
Before you leave you will be expected to leave the condo orderly and not a mess.
There is a $25 a week electricity & A/C allowance and this is normally sufficient unless the A/C is abused and left on when you are not there. Electricity is very expensive in Puerto Vallarta and I am trying to be fair. If more this allotment of electricity is used, you will be responsible for the cost.
Check in time is 3PM check out time is 12 noon
