I’m going on a cruise that goes to port in Puerto Vallarta for two days–from noon until 3pm the next day.
There are all-inclusive beach options that cost about $100 per person per day.
But when looking at the Hyatt Ziva there, a room for four people costs $500.
With Diamond check-in, I could probably get in around noon, and at a resort, I can have late check-out until 1pm.
I checked and it is about a $10 cab ride in each direction to and from the hotel. There are some places that are walk-able, but my guess is they’ll be more crowded than the resort a little further away.
We could choose to sleep in the room or on the boat.
We could hang out, eat our meals there, and generally relax by the pool or beach.
Part of me thinks this makes sense, but part of me is worried I’m just making an excuse to stay at another Hyatt property.
What do you think? Have you ever done anything like this? Does it make sense?
