... round the pole, going ever faster
and faster. While the ropes became longer as they unwrapped from the
pole. Each turn, they made, it was just a bright red blur. It is
like those swing chairs in carnivals that go higher and oh, so fast!
This is the reverse, they go downwards. With their speed, it took a
few minutes before they reached the ground still in that head down
We watched, and we took many pictures. “I ...
... 70Q per person for a dorm bed. Semuc- Zephyr Hostel. Lanquin. Hostel is relatively new so the dorm rooms we stayed in weren't really finished. No power points, no fans and the windows isn't open so it was hot as hell at night. Rooms $45Q per person in a dorm. The hostel has a good set up. You buy every thing from here food, drinks and tours. They have communal dinners every night that are pretty yummy. It's right near the river so you can go swimming and it's set in the ...
... stays inside so that it is warm when you return and there is the possibility of getting the car detailed. We booked on line but could not book detailing as that had to be done when you dropped your car off. We get to their big yellow building and find out that they car only spends the last day maybe two inside not the whole time and that we cannot get it detailed as they are fully booked. A bit of a disappointment but okay; the car will be washed ...
... Baby sea turtles in our hands...an endangered SEA TURTLE!
Pretty quickly the crowd grew and more and more kids started appearing. It was turtle time. We got a great talk from the conservationist folks about saving these turtles and what they do and go through to do what they do and then as the sun set on the Bay of Banderas, we were led out to the beach, had to get our hands super dirty in sand and water so the turtles could only smell sand and ...
... I enjoyed when I was about 5 years old. The boat was heading to Las Caletas, an island about an hour off the coast. The ride was a bit more low key than the last one, and Joanna and I spent much of it keeping each other warm from the cold breeze. Pulling into downtown Puerto Vallarta, there was an enormous cruise ship with the words "HOLLAND OOSTERDAM" emblazoned on a high deck. I made myself a mental note right then and there: take Joanna to Amsterdam. No, ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Casa Isabel Puerto Vallarta
We very much enjoyed our stay at Casa Isabel in Puerto Vallarta. We were recommended to the place by good friends; so we had high expectations of our accomodations and they were pretty much met. Since this was our first visit to this fine city, the hotel manager, Brenda, was very helpful in getting us situated not only in our apartment but also with loads of information of places to see, eat and do, especially restaurants. Sometimes we forget we're on vacation and start stressing about making reservations and who we should contact...Brenda made this all very easy..like your own personal assistant. Another on site resident is Juanito. He pretty much makes sure the hotel grounds are in perfect working condition. He is also able to make taxi calls for you and anything else that you might need. And not to forget Isabel the cleaning person. She makes sure your room is spotless, and it was!
You will love Casa Isabel
Our beautiful apartment style room had an amazing view of the Bay and downtown. The pool area is the perfect place to spend the afternoon. Very conveniently located to old town Vallarta - just a quick walk down the hill. Staff is very accomodating and helpful - they will truly make you feel comfortable, relaxed and at home during your stay.
This stylish, brand new boutique hotel is a must. Set within a hillside that offers an unbelievable panaramic view of Banderos Bay, these large, fully-furnished suites reflect a modern-design and are pristine clean. Image having a coffee or a meal from your room and watching the sun rise or set, or the city's nightly fireworks. This yellow-colored hotel feautres a lovely pool area with also a hot tub, bar, cooking grills, lounge chairs and red umbrellas -- all set within an abundance of exotic flowers and plants. A 5-minute walk down the hill, and you are in the best shopping and dinning area of Puerto Vallarata. The staff are like family! Brenda, the hotel and marketing director, is the residential expert on Puerta Vallarata, while the owners, Isabel and David, are the most graciously kind, generous and fun-loving hosts. Casa Isable is the best kept secret: Contemporary design, bright, colorful, super-clean, wonderful staff and nicely-priced. Shhhh! Don't tell too many people!
Casa Isabel - best in Puerto Vallarta
A wonderful place to stay. The rooms are exquisitely appointed and charming. The view of the Bay is spectacular and the hotel is wonderful in all respects. Brenda, Juan and the owners will just do anything they can to make your stay enjoyable and memorable. We loved our stay here in February 2005.
This is the place to stay in Puerto Vallarta, just beautiful.
We've just returned from a week at Casa Isabel. We know the Owner's, from Toronto, and although we've known that they had a place in Puerto Vallarta we never had the chance to go there, we've always done the Florida and Jamaica thing.
A fabulous retreat into Paradise
Not only is one given,all the amenities,one expects in a Premier Hotel,but also one receives ALL the esthetics which makes for a VERY memorable and enjoyable stay,whether it is for 1 week,2 weeks or longer..The owners,Dave and Isabel Manore,ENSURE that your visit with THEM,is firstly,friendly, but also efficient,in that every need is made available,through the accommodating staff;Juanito et all...It resembles being in a friend's home and HAVING FUN....What more can one say;what more would one want...We are very happy that there IS such a place, in this fast-pace world.......
The best for quality, view and host. Must see.
If you are looking for a hotel for a spectacular, romantic escape - this is it. If you're looking for a place for a group of friends to gather and have a terrific time - this is it. If you're looking for a great family vacation - keep looking, this isn't it. Casa Isabel is a wonderful, adult only inn that caters to the grown-up traveler. Whether you want to hang out at the small but lovely pool terrace chatting with fellow guests or laze around your well-equipped, comfortable room admiring the views of PV and Bandaras Bay with your sweetie, you would be hardpressed to find a more lovely location or a more helpful staff. Ah, the staff. Truly what makes this inn special. Always smiling, always gracious, and the most gracious and helpful of all is the manager, Brenda. Want your refrigerator stocked before you come - no problem. Looking for the best beaches - she'll draw you a map. Wondering where to go to eat - she has a book of restaurant recommendations (and not just the ones everyone has heard of) and will gladly make reservations for you. Want to get pampered with a massage, facial, pedicure - she's checked them out personally and will send you to the ones she uses for herself. Looking for the best shopping - she knows where to go and where to avoid. The wealth of information she has (as well as her infectious enthusiasm for PV) alone would make this inn a standout, even if it weren't as lovely as it is. I've been at 5-star resorts whose staff could learn a lot from her.
