This is just so fabulous... I love everything about it! You might want to add an actual location in Puerto Vallarta... although I hate to mess up your balance.

Yes! Yes! One thing: the "to" feels a little awkward. You might try an extended dotted line on each side of the word, or maybe even the little leaf detail that is on the inner left and right sides of the frame. Is the info text an ivory color? It doesn't seem as bright and contrasty as the the names. LOVE!

@Sydney: all of the text is the same white. The bright green (and jpg quality) must be creating an optical illusion. We had more details between the name, but thought it got busy. We will look at it again. @Susan: good call about having the location, will fix. EVERYONE ELSE: Thank you so much for the amazing response!
