I’m sorry about your experience. I went to those ports and its funny because Puerto Vallarta was actually my favorite. The have the bar the actually created the mojito. To be fair we were with someone who knew the area. I would give it another shot some day, and the heat is killer, I also went in July!

@napabridekelsey – I’m sorry to hear about your bad experience with Puerto Vallarta. My husband and I spent our honeymoon in PV and absolutely loved it. I agree with CarrieJuly that it’s worth giving it a second shot with someone who knows the area or do some preliminary research. Cheeky Monkey and Sea Monkey are amazing, the owner, Troy, would be able to point you in the right direction. I agree that the shops on the Malecon are overpriced, but if you go a couple of blocks up, there are some great deals. I’m glad you had a good honeymoon overall though!

At least the cruise itself was fun for ya =) I booked a cruise for our honeymoon to the Bahamas in late June and I’m scared of the heat but plan to stay in or close to the water… lol. Were also going Carnival, but we’ll be on the Pride. It’s our 1st cruise and I have no  idea what to expect from the actual ship to the motion to the ports but I’m super excited! XD I hope your wedding is magical, thanks for the cruise review (I enjoy them even if it’s not where were going).

@napabridekelsey – yes, hubby and I went in September, and it was the end of their “rainy” season (which meant it rained a little bit at night twice out of our 11 days!) so the humidity was a lot less. July/August is the end of their “peak” season and the rainy season is coming so I could see that it would get really muggy! Give it a whirl in late September, I recommend Dreams PV, and try the Rhythms of the Night (Ritmos de la Noche) excursion. 🙂
