Is it true that Celebrity does not adjust to the time changes in Mexico( Riveria).? If this is the case .is the itinerary in ship time or local time?? We lose as much as 2 hours in arrival times
Thanks

Hmmm, now your are trying my memory. I know that the ship does not adjust for Puerto Vallarta time and stays on ship's time. On one cruise, we had dinner in downtown Puerto Vallarta and a couple we were dining with freaked out when they thought they had missed the ship (Puerto Vallarta time) and scrambled to make it back.

The state of Jalisco is one hour ahead of the state of Nayarit (just a few miles north) so I don't believe that any cruise line adjusts to the hour time loss when going to Puerto Vallarta.

However, they do adjust to the hour loss when you visit Cabo and Mazatlan. So I guess the answer is they only adjust to half of it. VBG.

In fact, my family and I just spent a week in Punta Mita (Nayarit) looking at property along the northern Puerto Vallarta coast and which time we we going to meet the realtor, was a huge consideration.

Was the property near the place the van had to back up? I loved the adventure!

David, actually, it was just to the right at the end of the shortcut from Sayulita to Punta Mita (we went to the left) We had a jeep and drove that road to Sayulita a couple of times and I cracked up when I passed the wrong turn the guy took.

For those reading this, there is a dirt road (aka shortcut) from the village of Sayulita, Mexico to Punta Mita that has several potential wrong turns. A group of us were in a van when the driver took a wrong turn. When the road turned into a trail after fording a river and actually driving in a stream bed with water flowing around us, we had to get out of the van and walk a quarter of a mile so the driver sould turn it around. It was pretty funny.

Only in Mexico
