The Crandel Family Loves Nuevo Vallarta - Even in the Rain
March 8, 2012Lisa and Dave spent the week from February 11 to the 18th. It was a rainy and cool week, so beach life was curtailed. Seating at the Punta Pools was unrestricted. They could sit where ever they wished. Probably because of the small crowds.
They reported that the Punta Pools are not heated so they did not swim in the Punta pools. They tried the adjacent hot tubs and found them to be warm tubs. They also tried the Lazy River at the Grand Mayan a few times. That was about all the water sports in which they were able to participate.
They did go to Puerto Vallarta a few times and used their favorite driver. His name is Miguel Ibarra. The Crandel family has used Miguel on a number of occasions and highly recommends him. He speaks English very well and works for the Mayan as well. His phone number is 044-322-229-2469 if you would like to make arrangements for tours or transportation.
A place they visited for a meal and liked very much is called Ecole de Cuisine Le Fort in Bucerias. There is a restaurant called Le Fort in Puerto Vallarta, which is listed about mid-way between the top and bottom of about 479 restaurants in Puerto Vallarta.
The owner and his wife cook your meal in front of you. When finished, they join the group and have dinner with everyone too. Could be lots of fun. We have not eaten there yet but will try it out next week. Their address is Lazaro Cardenas No. 71-A, Bucerias, Mexico. It is actually just around the corner from Karen's, going toward central Bucerias on Lasaro Cardenas. Of course, we will put up a review.
Here are the rest of the photos Lisa shared with us. What a rainbow!!
