          We booked this resort for mid-October. Have never been to Pacific side. How is weather that time of year? What is best way to go to Puerto Vallarta for the day? Is there a bus service like Cancun or is taxi better? How expensive is a taxi? What is there in the little town to the north - shops & restaurants etc? Is it worth a walk there? We are RIU class members so pretty familiar w/hotels & food etc. Thanks in advance for any help...

          So I saw a picture of a sign with hours of operation for the bars, it had no smoking, no cellphones, and no sleeveless shirts. Is this for all bars or was it talking about the themed restaurants? I knew the restaurants require sleeves but nobody told me the bars did. Our travel agent told us we had to keep covered up when not in the pool or beach but I would consider muscle shirts covered up. I would like clarification before we pack up for this trip. We leave June 5th.
