After 3 weeks at Villa del Palmar, we came out here for our last week in PV March 3rd to try out Nuevo and also because our friends would be out here; then, at the last minute they decided to stay in town. We haven’t wanted to come out to Nuevo before since it was so isolated from the downtown area which we like so well.
But it’s not as far as we thought nor as isolated as the Mayan properties near Cancun (Maya Riviera). The bus stop is a short walk, although this is definitely a “destination resort” with lots of restaurants and not many cooking utensils. Of course, we eat almost all meals in the room, so it makes for creativity, and thus, the hardest part is the grocery situation: the on-site store is very expensive. A short walk, though, is an OXXO store (like a 7-11) which is much cheaper. To go to the new large Wal-Mart, you really need a taxi, which we decided not to do this time since we had brought so much food from last week. We can get milk from the OXXO.
But the wi-fi is too expensive so we found a couple of restaurants at the local marina offering free- wi-fi, so we may use those every other day or so. Our AC only blows COLD air ALL the time, so we turned it off and wear sweaters.
Unfortunately, our room (3254) overlooks the parking garage so it is quite noisy and also cold since it is the shady side. We’ll call this view the RCI view, but across the hall and upstairs is beautiful. (Be sure to ask for an odd-numbered room if you can.)
