    curvas peligrosas ("dangerous curves"): high-quality women's bathing suits, sizes 6-36

    by susiemargare Updated Jun 25, 2014

    curvas peligrosas is a small shop with a terrific inventory of bathing suits, esp for those of us who are "built for comfort, not for speed"! the suits all have interesting and pretty designs; they are not dowdy, as a lot of bathing suits for larger women are.

    the shop carries bathing suits of every imaginable type -- one-piece, two-piece, bikinis, tankinis, with skirts, with shorts-type bottoms, etc -- in sizes 6 to 36. these suits are of excellent quality and are very well made.

    the dressing room is not large but is plenty comfortable enough to get a suit on without bumping the walls. it also has a vertical electric fan, which makes trying on bathing suits much easier in hot weather. there are mirrors both in the dressing room and in the shop.

    the woman who works there (who i assumed was the owner) has a very good eye; she can tell your size with one look and also has an excellent grasp of which types of suits are flattering to different body shapes.

    there is a nice article about robina oliver, the woman who owns the store, at http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/05/14/unable-to-find-a-bathing-_n_5323522.html.

    they prefer cash but will accept credit cards.

    What to buy: it is hard to find good-looking, high-quality, well-made bathing suits in the USA for women who wear anything above size 14. take advantage of this opportunity, and get more than one! you won't regret it.

    What to pay: $75-$125, which is very reasonable for the quality of these bathing suits.

    etnica boutique: beautiful clothes for women

    by susiemargare Written Jun 9, 2014

    this is a tiny shop (and has only one tiny trying-on room), but i bought three very beautiful dresses here. i can't remember the exact prices, but i think that one was about $75 and two were about $100. they were worth every penny -- gorgeous colors, cotton, washable in cold water, very comfortable.

    all of them were just a little long for me, and the woman there (who i assume was the owner) offered to alter them (i decided to shorten the hems myself, but now i wish i had taken her up on her offer!). i also asked if she had any dresses similar to the ones i bought but in different colors, and she said no but offered to make them!

    one of the really nice things about this shop is that the dresses come in sizes up to XL. many of the clothing shops in puerto vallarta only carry dresses in sizes S-M-L.

    the shop accepts credit cards.

    Banamex: Money Exchange

    by BLewJay Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You should always have a small amout of the local currency in your pocket before leaving home. It can save you some aggravation once you reach your destination...it´s been our experience that when in PV, it´s best to change USD for pesos at the local bank. You seem to get a better exchange rate

    What to buy: USD for pesos

    What to pay: Whatever the exchange rate happens to be

    Internet cafes everywhere: Keeping in touch with the world

    by BLewJay Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you want (and need) to keep in touch with the world, there are internet cafes located all over the place in Puerto Vallarta. No need to pay through the nose at the resort, just go into town and you'll find quite a few of them at reasonable prices.

    What to pay: We paid $10 pesos (about $1.00/USD) for over an hour of internet time...can't get that at the hotel for sure.

    by waacow Written Aug 31, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    It is the first cigar shop, we've stopped while we were in downtown Puerto Vallarta. The guy in the shop was very helpful assisting as picking out some fine cigar and provide good recommendations on which ones to buy. He didn't try to sell us the most expensive cigar at all since we just casual cigar smoker.

    What to buy: Ask the shop.

    What to pay: $10 - $20
