Keep me wired in Puerto Vallarta!

Does anyone know if I can get a prepaid micro sim (with data!) that works in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico? Data is actually more important than minutes - I'm taking my factory unlocked iPhone, and would really prefer not to have to rely on sketchy wifi while I'm there.

In my perfect world, there'd be a Mexican telco that serves Puerto Vallarta and also sells prepaid data micro sims by mail. I could order one now, load it up before I go, and have stress-free data on my iPhone the week I'm in PV.
Does such a dream exist?
Snowflake details - my entire family is flying down in a package deal for my brothers wedding mid-January. We're basically going from the airport to the resort, then the resort back to the airport with the odd scheduled event/tour in between. There most likely won't be any time where I'd be able to actually purchase a sim in person in PV - hence the desire to have it shipped to me ahead of time. About the only place I might be able to do any shopping of this type would be in the PV airport, if such a thing exists, but I'm guessing it would be ridiculously expensive anyway.
Any ideas from the data-loving Mexican travelers?
