    Think "Wild On-Spring Break"


    I stayed at La Palapa Hotel in 1999 for my high school Spring Break trip and needless to say, it was perfect for that occasion. The pool is a daily, drunken debauchery during the spring break months--March, April, May and the atmosphere was young and energetic--think whip cream contests, body shots, booze cruise rallies, etc. I wouldn't suggest staying at this hotel during those months if you are looking for a family-friendly atmosphere. In fact, I wouldn't go to Acapulco in general if you are seeking anything other than wild, beer-goggle wearing, social nonsense :)

    Unique Quality: Swim up bar, kitchenette in rooms, near beach, good views

My Favorite Restaurant in Puerto Vallarta...

by tcapps5961 about La Palapa

Located on the beach in Playa los Muertos, This has to be about the best restaurant I've found in PV. The atmosphere, being located right on the beach, is fantastic. The food is international leaning toward Mexican. The quality of food and service rank right at the top of the list! I've never had a meal there that wasn't excellent. Serving breakfast lunch and dinner. Outdoor seating. Ask for "Rampa" as your waiter. He's worked there 30 years and will take great care of you! Live entertainment in the evenings.***** Fresh seafood

International Cuisine

by spartan about PV, Cabo, CancĂșn, Tijuana & Mexicali

In Puerto Vallarta try La Dolce Vita, Los Arbolitos, La Bodeguita Del Medio, PiPis Restaurant and Bar, Carlos O'Brians, Cheese Burger in Paradise, El Carbonson, or Chino's Pardiso. In Cabo San Lucas I would recommend Carlos & Charlies as well as La Palapa. And in CancĂșn I would also recomment Carlos & Charlies.

All of the restaurants had their own unique character from the Cuban atmoshpere at La Bodeguita, to the extremely fast and customer oriented service at PiPis. The food was excellent and the surroundings were wonderful. Mariachi music, candlelight, dancing, noise, shots of tequila all made these restaurants something to behold. Paella (with curry, chicken, beef, pork and shrimp) and Cuban Rum/Coke at La Bodeguita Del Medio, Fillet Mignon at El Carbonson, Roasted Chicken topped with sauteed mushrooms (with fries and corn) at Cheese Burger in Paradise, the Mambo Combo at PiPis, Barbeque Ribs, Stuffed Shrimp with rice and Jello Tequila shots (2 x 1 @ $20 pesos) at Carlos O'Brians, and the Combo Platter at Chino's Paradiso.

"Bead Necklace Maker"

This man's multi-market-stall abode was packed full of all kinds of bead necklaces. I spent way too much time looking to find just the one or two I wanted to buy. He was friendly, and kind enough to allow me to take his picture.

Only thing was after all that time choosing two necklaces, I found out the prices and landed up paying more than I had anticipated but.. maybe he really needed the money :)

"A View in the Main Plaza"

The Fountain

"The Wall of somebody's house..."

...was uniquely dotted with red hands and topped with a sharp red stripe.

Perfect for a group pic!

"How much can you stuff into a little Acapulco taxi"

Suitcases in every nook and cranny I guess! Ah... where is the motor??

Late afternoon view of a boat bobbing in the glistening bay,

from La Palapa poolside
