Looking for the best places to eat in Puerto Vallarta? Nobody can promise a perfect restaurant list since this is a big beach resort vacation destination with hundreds of spots to choose from. We have eaten our way across the area several times over the years though and have a good sense of which Puerto Vallarta restaurants live up to the hype, consistently. First though, a quick geography lesson. There’s a river just north of the PV airport that separates the state of Jalisco from the state of Nayarit. Jalisco contains Puerto Vallarta, as well as the Costalegre region to the south. Riviera Nayarit north of the river contains Nuevo Vallarta, Bucerias, Punta de Mita, and Sayulita. We’re staying on the southern side of the river and airport for this article on where to eat, Puerto Vallarta proper between the Romantic Zone and the marina area. Note that if you’re staying at a high-end all-inclusive hotel in this area, you will probably eat extremely well. … [Read more...] about 10 Puerto Vallarta Restaurants to Put on Your List

When planning a vacation, travelers read, research, and process lots of information before making a final decision on a destination. Gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender travelers have to consider an additional layer: acceptance. In a world where it’s still illegal in many countries to be gay, LGBTQI persons consider safety factors at a whole different level than their straight counterparts. With that in mind, we’ve rounded up the best LGBTQI destinations for travelers to consider, and what sets them apart. Best LGBTQI-Friendly Destinations Factors for inclusion on this list include consideration for places that have an active gay community, destination marketing organizations that work to appeal to LGBTQI travelers, and, finally, countries that have passed marriage equality laws.

Does your favorite celebrity chef spring to mind when you’re feeling puckish, clicking through the channels and looking for a cooking show? No? The name Betty Vasquez didn’t ring my bell, either.

Driving there we’d pass … [Read more...] about The master chef of the Riviera Nayarit

Mexico gets a undeserved bad reputation for travel, particularly in the United States. Much of this is due to the cable news environment with its exaggerated narratives that Mexico is full of drug cartels and murderous immigrants. This is not what Mexico is actually like. In fact, the real Mexico is so different that you’ll be stunned. My name is Kate and I write about solo female travel for a living. And I’ve spent a lot of time traveling in Mexico.
