#bobbie douflas on Aug 23, 2014 :
i want to know about this city wabt to live there puerto vallarta w please help me okay
#bill on Jun 18, 2014 :
I lived in PV for 7 years. I would suggest you take a 6-8 month trip and make sure PV is where u wanna be. I was in the golf industry and spent a lot of time with retirees, both local and international. It was quite common for a member of my Golf Club to decide, after 6-8 months, that Mexico just wasnt for them. I STRONGLY suggest that you have at least a 50-60% profeciency in Spanish and are willing to take classes and become comfortable conversing/reading Spanish. 90% of the people who only lasted 4 months to a year did not bother to learn Spanish. PV is a wonderful town and the area is just beautiful. The true treasure, however, is the local people. Im from a small town in SW Virginia and spoke 0 Spanish when I first arrived in Mexico. I made it my business to learn Spanish and it made my time there special. Like a dumb azz I went back in the Military after 9-11 and was injured in Afghanistan. I hope to soon be back on the beaches of PV! Good Luck, keep an open mind and leave your watch at home, lol.
