Making a German Leopard

Two years ago in puerto Escondido, we found a Friendly unusual dog ...described it on this site then as a short hair with leopard /jaguar spots ad a tail with rings like a raccoon.

Bus from airport to Old Puerto Vallarta?

I've taken the public bus a time or two from the bus terminal to downtown PV (the old section).

But I can't remember the bus number(s). Can anyone help me out?

If I remember correctly, the same buses make a stop along the airport (though I've never done that.)

Can you confirm that?
Thanks for any help

Hello,

We're travelling in Mexico at the moment and have been told about some amazing places in San Luis Potosi state - however we're backpacking so reliant on public transport. Can anyone give us any tips on how to get to these places, or where we can find more information?

  • Half Moon lagoon (laguna media luna)

Time isn't an issue really, but we'll be arriving end January 2015. We'll most likely be coming from San Luis Potosi town and will be…
