Upon arrival at Garza Blanca, there were more irritations. After paying thousands of dollars, we were told that WiFi is not included and they charge $10 per device per day. The resort property at Garza Blanca is quite gorgeous. Our 3BR condo has a huge wraparound balcony that overlooks the ocean and the mountains. The balcony has two hammocks and a hottub. The condo itself has top-notch appliances, very modern furnishings and is quite large. It also has two master suites and a bedroom with two queen beds. So far, the food has been quite good but the service is not quite at par with a resort of this quality. We’ll see if it gets better as days go on.
By the end of the day, we did not get a call from US Airways about Binita’s bags. Upon calling the number provided repeatedly, all we got was a constantly ringing phone with nobody to answer.
I went out for a very hilly 2.5-mile run in hot and humid conditions. There are no good roads near the resort where I can run. The resort is about 10km south of Puerto Vallarta with a single road and no shoulder. I ran on it for about a mile and back. Compound the heat, humidity and hills with traffic and no shoulder and you have the recipe for an uncomfortable run. I did have the sounds of the ocean right next to me though! Uncomfortable and beautiful. Isn’t that perfect?
