Vanilla Beans in Cabo or Puerto Vallarta

Hi Everyone,

We're going on a cruise in February and will be stopping by Puerto Vallarta and Cabo San Lucas. I'd really like to bring back some vanilla beans to California. I've read on message boards that it is allowed. Can anyone confirm this?

Also, does anyone know where I can purchase vanilla beans near one of the ports? It looks like we'll disembark at both ports, but we won't likely be taking any excursions (we have a young child and she's not allowed on most of the excursions yet).

Thank you!

    On the MB it's also reported you can get them at the Botanical Gardens but that 's probably too much of a trip unless your really committed. http://www.vbgardens.org/

      Checking with the folks at a local Puerto Vallarta Message board produced this response.
