I normally spend 6 to 7 days a year at Lindo Mar in the month of May when the weather is hot, dry and sunny and the ocean is calm and clear and there are plenty of tropical fish to see snorkeling off the rocks in front of the resort. This year I took a chance on 12 days and can say that it was even more pleasant than 6 to 7 days. The resort is always spotlessly clean, the staff is pleasant and helpful and like a family, and the beach and pool are never crowded. I always stay on the 5th floor which has great views of all of the Bay as well as dolphins when they swim by and is quiet because it is built below the highway. The last two weeks of the monthy of May provide an extra benefit to all who visit Puerto Vallarta as it is annual Restaurant Week(s) and many of the top restaurants have three course menus at $15 or $25 depending on the restaurant which gives an excuse to go into town at night and enjoy a great meal and then try to walk off some of the calories along the newly improved "malecon" seawalk and pier. The nice thing about Lindo Mar is that you can do absolutely nothing and just hang out and enjoy the calm and quiet serenaded by the sounds of the sea at night, dining at the "Playita" restaurant on site, or you can take a cab or the 7 Peso bus into town and enjoy fine dining and nightlife and street life. If you are a bit more adventuresome, you can take the local bus over to Mismaloya, Tomatlan, or the Botanical Gardens near Tuito for reasonable $2, which is one of the most beautiful rides anywhere. I would recommend Lindo Mar to anyone who wants to get away from it all, but have air conditioning, nice clean acommodations, easy tour booking, and a pleasant relaxed environment without crowds.
