  1. Cab is best. Just make sure you ask to be taken to Jardin Botanico and not Vallarta Gardens. We had a miscommunication with our driver and he took us to Vallarta Gardens which is a resort in the complete opposite direction! The Botanico Gardens are beautiful and the onsite restaurant is delicious! Nice hiking trails too.
  2. The traffic around the Malecon area was bad when we were there in November on a one ship port day. The day that had 3 in port we avoided that area and stayed at our hotel. I could only imagine how bad a 4 ship day would be. Just think of all the extra taxis, Uber's, buses, etc.... I would allow some extra time just to be sure.
  3. On one cruise in February when we left LA it was in the 90's and the day we came back it was hailing. 🙂 You just never know. So far every cruise out of LA we have had smooth sailing. My husband does take Bonine everytime just in case.
  4. We just got back from a week in Puerto Vallarta. On two different days we were in vehicles (one a taxi, and one a small van) and both drivers went on the other side of the road to pass slower drivers in front of them. I just closed my eyes and prayed. Then back home here in California, on Thanksgiving day a jeep passed two slow cars on a two lane road and he almost had a head on collision. People need to relax and drive a little slower.
