Looking for information on PVG---

tj, I was there last week. Was there 8 and 5 years ago also. Generally speakiing it is a fishing village and somewhat (maybe totally to some folk's mind) improvished. There are no visible signs of change. It would appeal to a very, very small segment of the gringo tourist trade. There is no beach around the bay of PVG but the view is nice. There are a couple of struggling enramadas. There are a couple of lodging establishment, all are far from 3 star. Think more like the actual village of La Barra de Potosibut less affluent, not the beachfront at La Barra.

However, the beach on the South end of Papanoa is showing some signs of "progress". A couple of new beachfront restaurants and lodging is available. In other words it might be in the very early stages of development.

Also, there is a new road around to the sandy beach SE of PVG and there are some rumblings about some nice homes being built there. I did not go there but plan to in the coming weeks.

I don't think the Papanoa/PVG area holds any great "boming" future. There is simple too much available in Z/I that has more appeal to the Northern visitors. There may be some, say 1% or less, of the gringo tourists that would find the area appealing. Yes, they say they want to experience Mexico and they could do that in PVG/Ppanoa area but in reality the average Northern gringo wants what they perceive Mexico to be, not what it really is.
