    Hello: Thanks for one answer. We are still not sure whether we will stay at Riu Palace Pacifico or not as there are few reviews which says that there is few theft in the room especially from the safe? Where else we can put our passport and tickets and some money if there is theft in the safe inside the room? What else you can do? We also understand that water in the pool (only has one pool) is very cold? Does any body has taken either the cab or local bus to the puerto vallarta city center (town) and how much each one costs and how long it takes to reach to the center (town)? If check out is at 11 a.m. then what happens to Lunch ? If the flight is late and shuttle to the airport from the hotel comes approx. 2 or 2.30 p.m,.? Are we allowed to take Lunch or request for little late check out? Does anybody know which evening shows are worth to watch? with best regards from: Lalanis
