Nuevo Vallarta is one of the most disgusting places I have been in Mexico. Costa Careyes on the other hand was very tastefully done. It was/is expensive. Some Italians were involved with that development. In 1984 I could have bought a nice piece of property there. I assessed the risk and decided not to. Not gonna play the woulda, coulda, shoulda game... like I shoulda dated Cheryl Jean Stopplemoor when I had the chance in 1972 and she went and married David Ladd! Very cute girl from Lawrence, KS. All American. When I went to Costa Careyes in 2010 I had a look at some of the houses, beautiful bougainvilla draped affairs on a nearly pristine cove (loggerhead turtle rookery) with a bankrupt Club Med resort. The place looked great. Not sure how Cheryl looks these days! Diamonds on the soles of her shoes?
