My fiancé Keith and I are about 10 months out from our wedding but are starting to think about where and how long we would like our honeymoon to be. We just recently went on vacation to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, and it helped us to think about what we really liked or what we would do differently for our next vacation (which will be our honeymoon). We absolutely loved our resort and the fact that it was all-inclusive. The staff were all very friendly, and it was nice not having to worry about how much money we were spending all week.

Thirty years after Liz Taylor and Richard Burton put Puerto Vallarta on the map with a torrid romance, this once-placid little seaside village on the west coast of Mexico has become a major resort.In what used to be a fishing hole, a half-dozen mega-hotels now rise, each with enormous pools set amid forests of coconut palms. As fat yachts ride at anchor in the marina, vacationers from all over the world stroll on the harbor's boardwalk, pausing to browse in boutiques or sip a cool drink at an outdoor cafe.

PUERTO VALLARTA, Mexico - Under any other circumstances, the residents of this beach town would have been just plain happy to have Andrew Luster off the streets. In his last five days of freedom, the heir to the Max Factor fortune and fugitive serial rapist was living in a motel that rents by the hour next to the local office of the Mexican version of the FBI. Nights would find him in the flashy clubs, consorting with lots of young women. But when a U.S. bounty hunter tackled Luster last month in front of a taco stand near the waterfront, the capture created its own brouhaha over vigilantism, national sovereignty and neighborly relations.

After years of vacationing in Mexico, I decided I was no longer interested in traveling there. Not that I had encountered a bad experience. On the contrary, Mexico had always been the affordable destination with a guaranteed perfect climate and incredibly gracious people.However, over the years, there was something about the awkward commingling of our cultures I no longer enjoyed. The time-share salesmen, the Hard Rock cafes and the constant flow of vendors on the beach served to remind me that I was no longer a stranger in an adventurous land.
