    Round, per person. About $130 of that is airport taxes and all the other fees so I doubt it is going to get much cheaper than that.

    For any of you out there that are skeptical on Sami's condo, rest assured that the place is awesome.

    I just got back from an 8 day vacation, much of it spent relaxing at Sami's condo, and it was wonderful - perfect weather, great food, and a nice location right on a private section of the beach.

    I'll take the time to post a more detailed review here in the next couple of weeks (things are super-busy right now at work), but I just wanted to take a minute right now to lay any of your doubts to rest in the meantime. Rent here with confidence and enjoy Puerto/Nuevo Vallarta!

    Thanks again, Sami!

    Ok guys, this week is last chance for the CP intro price. I'll still give good CP discount for anyone that wants to go but as those who have PM'ed me know, this has been a great discounted price and I can't keep it that way forever.

    It doesn't matter if you book for next year or this, I will honor that price but you need to reserve this week.

    Sami, everything is up in the air on my end right now, but saying that I'm always interesting about this. Question if you fly to this where do you go? If driving how far down is that? It seems like its many miles down.

    Airport code is PVR. From Florida, it's about a day (24h) drive to Texas? We drove from Dallas, crossed the border in Nuevo Laredo, and non-stop it's about 26h drive. I'd do it again but this time we are making more stops, last time we had a trailer and figured the less stops the better. We stayed overnight only in Guadalajara.

    I'll try to get you the best rate as possible but if you can, try to see what your plans are. If it is too far ahead, just try to give me a estimate on how likely you're going and at what approximate time so I can try to reserve you a spot at that price. You don't have to do a commitment and no deposits either from CP members, I trust this community.

    Dude, great rates from Orlando with Aeromexico. I wish I had that option!


    How far you're away from Aeromexico? Is it worth to rent a car?

    AeroMexico is one of the Mexican airlines, they don't fly from Dallas so I don't get those rates. Only straight flight from here is AA and that's typically $400. Yours is about $230.

    I would not rent a car. Taxi or bus is the way to go. Bus is cheap and safe, if someone is worried. Taxi is also very cheap compared to US.

    Yeah the airfare from Dallas is fairly expensive for that flight, comes out to about $550 with taxes and fees...

    This sounds like a very good deal. Is anyone who is a member here entitled to the CP discount?

    Yes, as long as the member isn't one of those spammers. :)

    I won't announce the rate publicly here as it's too low for that, I would appreciate if none of you would post it either. To give an idea, you could invite couple of friends to stay with you, ask them for lodging money and have money left over to put towards plane tickets.

    To assure everyone, the rate is the same for everyone. If in doubt, you are all free to discuss the rate in PM's between those who have received it, just don't post it here. :)

    Intro rate has ended unless you have already reserved your spot. Summer weeks now available at $750 a week, winter weeks at $950. I will consider (partial or full) trades for audio equipment or hunting equipment (things that make loud sounds especially, but I don't know if we are allowed to talk about them here so all that should be discussed in PM's).

    CP referral program: Your friend gets the CP rate, you get $25 referral fee or $50 off your stay. Does not apply for referring another CP member... :)

    p.s. Trades are being accepted. My friend is looking for a multichannel amp, processor, or higher end receiver. Also 2ch stuff is considered as trade items.
