Mexico
I will be in San Pancho in Mexico for a little over a week. I leave on Sunday. San Pancho is north of Puerto Vallarta. Any tips from anyone would be greatly appreciated.

This is my frist trip to Mexico and I have no clue. From what I understand, San Pancho is a tight little beach community that has world-class surfing and marlin fishing. Other than that, I'm lost. Thanks everyone!

RE: Mexico
I've been to Puerto Vallarta. It's totally packed at night by the water -- more tourists running around than you can count. You'd barely even know that you're in Mexico. It can be fun, just don't expect much local culture unless you get a little ways out.

RE: Mexico
I agree, Puerto Vallata has as many white people walking around as Mexicans. But still, I'd recommend it in a heartbeat. It's a cute little town with plenty to do, nice restuarants, charming architecture and pretty safe. I'd go back in a heartbeat. I ended up going with some friends to a club on the outskirts of PV and there were only Mexicans there. I only saw one or two gringos. There actually are Mexicans to be found in PV, but you'll have to head off the main street to for more non-gringo places.

Thanks guys. Do you remember any names of places where you ate/partied?

Hopefully, San Pancho will be a little less "touristy." Hard to say though. It's going to be a great trip regardless: house on the beach, personal chef for the week, renowned surf, fishing tournament on Saturday, and plenty of time in between for debauchery, buffoonery, and the like.

Word. I'd be interested. I'm contemplating a "study abroad" to Mexico this study. Detailed Costs would be more than appreciated as well.

Can you give me a scoop on the ease of hooking up / amount of singles in puerto vallarta?

RE: Mexico
I was in PV in May. I have a data sheet on my GDL trip. PV is cool. I went during low season so it was kinda dead. I was in a hostel the first night then all inclusive the last 3 days. Me and my buddy were the only people in the hostel that night. Try to see when the high season picks up again. I dont know when Mexicans take their vacations but I know September is still considered hurrican season so it may be dead.

Tourist girls are pretty easy to bang. I been meaning to write a resort game thread. If I were you, I would go the resort route. More people, you see everybody at the pool and the women are easy to open on. My first night I went to the best club in PV. It was 20 to get in all you can drink. The girls were descent. I approached 3 sets. Dropped the ball on one set from San Diego. My Spanish is weak and didnt use dancefloor game. The resort I smashed a chica from DF and a Canadian. Dropped the ball on another set.

I was on the maricon aka boardwalk most of the nights. Thats the tourist spot. I went in town to bar hop too but it wasnt that live. I cant remember talkin to any local girls. You probably have to go party on the north end to find them. If you need a hook up on a resort, I got a local that you can call. Spanish only tho. I dropped 50 a night on an all inclusive that was 175. The food was shit but all you can drink plus its was the best resort in PV. Any other questions hit me up.

The cycle of disrespect can start with just an appetizer.

RE: Mexico
I lived in Puerto Vallarta for a year

First of all, the apartments right behind Walmart are only 3000 pesos per month to rent. Secondly, if you go into nayarit or the place behind vallarta, its a little cheaper and its MUCH cheaper right beside the airport. Also the best tacos in the place. There is also a town outside of Vallarta...the name also escapes me but you can take a bus out there, takes about 20 minutes or so to get to... its past the concert hall. Anyway, its MUCH cheaper to live in aswell. I have a friend from Puerto Vallarta he's very cool, I could hook you up with him if you like. I'm sure he'd be happy to show you around, it'll help him to practice his English.

My ex-gf's father used to run the sol melia haha... rich girl. I would eat there every night for free. Great buffet there btw, costs 300 pesos for one meal. Don't goto the Marina...those people are pricks and its REALLY REALLY expensive there. You can get a job at Puerto Vallarta Adventures if you're really hard up for some cash... they pay about 50 bucks a day... not great. There's also a place to teach English in Plaza Del Sol... they also don't pay very well but this is a tourist town. I met one woman who sold timeshares, didn't seem like a great job. I wasn't very happy at PV after the first few months... couldn't find anything to do except play video games, lay on the beach and go to parties with my girlfriend (19 y/o, I was 26). Guadalajara has more jobs and more people... its not too far away. Lived there for 6 months aswell... much better IMO except the pollution kinda sucked. Lived in a HOUSE in GDL (2 floors) for 3500 per month. Bought all used appliances and haggled at the farmer's market... excellent time there! Food cost me around 200 pesos per month. Made about 5000/month teaching a few classes per week. Stayed home and played PS2 for 6 months... fantastic time... fruit is so cheap out there. Went back to PV and thought... fvck this! Never again...

If you want to meet girls, go hang out at the UNIVA campus or the public university (I can't remember the name)... you can meet tons of girls there and they all look like Belanova wannabes.

Watchout for the police, I was robbed twice by them. There are lots of women that will respond to you on Couchsurfing. I lived just outside the beach for 3500 and also behind walmart for 3000 (a decent 3 bedroom place). I mostly just used it to bang my gf at the time.

Vallarta is not typical Mexico...infact its pretty boring once the novelty of the beach and nightclubs wear off. The women are all fresas also...so expect lots of attitude.

PM me if you'd like, I can add you to couchsurfing.

Lastly: BEWARE OF THE CROCODILES
its a real thing.. they like to hang out on the golf course infront of the marina and sometimes down at the beach closer to the mexican beach... dont fvcking go down there or go into the water. I saw one once swimming down the river, he had to be a good 8 ft long... Also BEWARE THE TARANTULAS if you go out towards the airport... fvcking things were everywhere in my house... big milipedes and tarantulas!!! Smash em as soon as you see them.

200 pesos on food per month? Hopefully you said 2,000 and that's pushing it.
