Vallarta Gardens in La Cruz
So we just booked our winter holidays today. We're going to our mainstay Puerto Vallarta. Last year Playa del Carmen was super beautiful. I just don't think I can do the long, cross national flight again with the little one. PV is so easy with a direct 4 hour flight that doesn't run at a ridiculous hour. Makes the holiday a bit well, a little more like a holiday. In the past we've stayed at some gorgeous boutiques, waterfront hotels and we've rented a house. This time we've opted for renting a Villa in a gated resort community on the beach. One part house, another part hotel. There's enough room for us all, a spa, a restaurant, but we can also cook for ourselves, a private beach for the kids and three pools right outside our patio. It's located in LaCruz which means we need to drive to restaurants (or walk along the beach) if we want to go local but it's another type of vacation we're up to trying. It's a superb location for getting to other parts of the region - 15 minutes from Punta Mita, 20 minutes from Sayulita, 30 minutes from PV and 5 minutes to Bucerias. We're 8 months away but Keith is so excited about going I had to share it now.
