Puerto Vallarta is a big city, which we decided to stay in the middle of.
Marina Vallarta used to be the most amazing marina anywhere, but there was some corruption and deferred maintenance, and now we can afford it. It’s under new management, and being rebuilt, and actually very nice. We stayed two nights, went shopping at Wal-Mart and Costco (walk to, taxi back), and are now fully outfitted and provisioned.
These were our neighbors. We were right behind the sport-fisher in the middle of the picture. Great restaurants and people around the marina.
