We enjoyed it so much last year, we decided to do a repeat. This time we invited friends, Patti and Jeff, who were both in need of a relaxing getaway, to come along. After a nonstop flight from Seattle, Guayabitos is about an hours drive north of Puerto Vallarta.
Most of these photos could have come from last year’s collection but that’s what I like about the place: elegant yet affordable simplicity that doesn’t change much from year to year. Charlie and Mona are amazing hosts.
However, this year there was one significant change.
Breakfast, which is different each day, is included in the price of your room.
Also included in the price of your room is happy hour on the veranda at 5:00 PM each day.
The beach is a great place for a walk before breakfast.
One of our favorite places for lunch was Karla’s, just a short stroll down the beach.
After a discussion on the relative merits of tequila one day, Charlie conducted a blind test to determine if there was a perceptible taste difference based on cost.
And one more thing included in your stay: games.
Cooper thinks that Guayabitos is a pretty cool place to spend the winter.
Toward the end of our stay, there was a regional volleyball tournament just down the beach.
We missed the full moon by just a few days but the ‘almost full’ version was still pretty spectacular.
Well, that’s it for another year….
