Help! We're a group of musicians from the US who are going to be vacationing in PV in February 2019. Anybody know anyone there with an upright bass that they might be willing to rent us for a week? Bringing a bass when we are just coming for fun, not for gigs, is too much expense and hassle, but we'd sure love to have one to play while we're there!

Is there anywhere in PV area to buy snorkel equipment. We are deciding if we should purchase our own (adults and kids) and bring it or if we can buy it down there .

Snorkel Equipment

I would actually rent it while you are down there. I've been to P.V. 4 times (5th trip coming in December) and have never had a problem with finding snorkeling equipment. Save yourself the packing space for travel and the money while you are there..

Thanks for pointing out the oversite Fletcher. The farmers' market is great and I've gone ahead and added it to the map. If you see anything else missing, feel free to add a listing for it. Keeping the site up to date and complete is a community effort!
