5.0 out of 5 stars Helped us plan great places to go! Insider tips.
Fodors Puerto Vallarta was a great book for our weeklong trip to PV. We used it to get tips ahead of time about things like taxis, air ports, time share sharks, and basic information about the culture. When we arrived, we went to many of the restaurants and beaches suggested, like Andriengo for Mexican fare, Fedensio's on the end of the beach for breakfast, and a great...

3.0 out of 5 stars A good, not great foundation
Useful if you're seeking basic guidance as to how to proceed in planning your vacation to Puerto Vallarta. Frankly, I found it to be more of a marketing tool for those listed than a 'people's choice' guide. Specifically, important site recommendations are lacking, such as the Vallarta Botanical Garden. Also, although there is information on using the taxi services, it...

Fodors Puerto Vallarta was a great book for our weeklong trip to PV. We used it to get tips ahead of time about things like taxis, air ports, time share sharks, and basic information about the culture. When we arrived, we went to many of the restaurants and beaches suggested, like Andriengo for Mexican fare, Fedensio's on the end of the beach for breakfast, and a great Cuban place, La Boguedita, where we ordered "off" of the menu, and ate the best sandwiches ever. We shopped at the Rio Cuale flea market and found great finds. We appreciated the side trips suggested, and visited the quaint beach town of Buseria. The book also had chapters on art and tequilla, so the reader could get a more in-depth look at things that make PV important. Lots of good advice was given (avoid time share people at the airport, taxis have one fare) so that made us feel like we had an "edge" while vacationing. Puerto Vallarta is not that large and this book was all we needed to spend a great 7 days in Mexico. We used it everyday to plan our activities.

This review is from: Fodor's Puerto Vallarta 2009: With Guadalajara, San Blas, and Inland Mountain Towns (Travel Guide) (Paperback)
Fodor's Puerto Vallarta is definatly the best guide to this city! Unlike it's competition, Fodors is extremely organized and actually a fun guide to read through. The organzation in this book is set up by area and then within that section the subsections are hotels, restaurants, spas, beaches, activities, ect. This highly detailed form of organization makes it easy to find what you are looking for and discover new facts and trip ideas while you are at it. Maps and photos within the book are all very up to date and easy to navigate. Fodors gives you an excellent guide filled with interesting facts about the Puerto Vallarta area as well. Such facts include to annual festivals and competitions that take place in Puerto Vallarta year round and histories regarding certain places of interest. If you are looking for a guidebook that is fun, factual, and entertaining look no far and purchase this book for all of your vacation questions and needs.

Frankly, I found it to be more of a marketing tool for those listed than a 'people's choice' guide. Specifically, important site recommendations are lacking, such as the Vallarta Botanical Garden. Also, although there is information on using the taxi services, it would be much more effective travel guide if it detailed the "zone chart" that supposedly keeps the cabbies fair and honest. Straight out the airport and into the ensuing barrage of hawkers finds the less initiated subject to a slew of detestable fleecing.. from money changers to cab rides... new visitor beware!
