Your best bet is to use your own home bank to get pesos. Most of the big national banks like Wells Fargo and B of A have foreign currency or will order it for you. It's your best exchange rate with the smallest fees and that way you have some pesos on hand as soon as you get off of the plane.
Upon arrival and just outside the immigration and customs you will find a bunch of ATM's, these are the major banks here in Mexico and they will give you the best exchange rate as well as the smallest ATM fee.
Arriving at the Casita.
Please click on the Arrival Info Form button to let me know your airline and flight number so I can track your arrival. The immigration and customs lines vary from one time of the year to another so please call or WhatsApp me at +1 619 838 4578 once you clear customs so I can make arrangements to have someone at the Casita to check you in.
Most drivers will drop you off at the x level of the Casita, and there is a doorbell that you can ring to let me know you have arrived.
A couple of important housekeeping points:
The water is safe to drink out of the tap. Many people like to use bottled water anyway and it's readily available in large format jugs at the corner stores. The water from the kitchen tap is filtered.
It is safe to flush TP down the toilet.
A mini-safe is provided in the x room. The default combo is 1234A. You can change the combo by opening the safe door, reach around to the back edge of the door in-between the hinges and press the small button you will find there. Enter a 4 digit number of your choice followed by the letter A on the keypad on the front of your safe - twice. Remember it must be done twice. Your safe is now ready to be locked.
Wifi - The Wifi password is: "MercedesPVR"
The soap we use at Villa Lucero are natural handcrafted soaps and body care products made right here in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Blended only from the best oils, scents, and botanicals to nourish your skin and your senses.

Portable Speaker - Please feel free to use the portable speaker located in the living room, but please do not remove it from the Villa. It connects via Bluetooth, simply turn on the unit (switch is on the back) and push the small black button on the top left until the screen reads "Blue" your device is now ready to pair with "BT Speaker". You can unplug the unit and move it around the house as it has its own rechargeable batteries onboard.
Great news! You are located in one of the coolest neighborhoods in PV. A safe and secure area surrounded by people all living a dream in paradise. Friendly and ready to accommodate and point the way to the best eateries and amenities. Five blocks to the Beach. You won't need anyone to point you in that direction 🏖
Many of our guests like to do their own cooking. Major grocery stores include Ley (the closest), Mega, Walmart, La Comer (the fanciest) and Costco. Your Costco membership will work here. If you don't have a Costco membership, you can get one at the customer service counter. Click here for an interactive map.
