Here’s Where We’re Going for the Big 0-2

For our second wedding anniversary/7 years of companionship, we’re headed to Puerto Vallarta in August. PV is known for its natural beauty, fabulous clear waters, relaxed nightlife and thriving art scene.

I’m itching to go, but for now, here are some of my faves on Flickr:

Above, you’ll notice some tiny islands in the center, below the mountains on the horizon.

Here they are, closer up. Los Arcos is a great snorkeling spot, and our hotel is nearby.



PV is surrounded by mountainous jungle with rivers and waterfalls.

I’ve become a big fan of Huichol art — something I didn’t know existed a mere year ago — and PV is a hub of the psychotically colorful beaded work.

Along with great art shopping, there’s much to see on the malecon, the boardwalk lining serene Banderas Bay.

So this means, yes, I will have gone to both Acapulco and Puerto Vallarta this year. That’s what lucky girls who live in Mexico City get to do.

And with any luck, we’ll add another exotic beach locale to the list before the year’s over. Huatulco, anyone? Guayamas? Veracruz?

    Beautiful, beautiful. How do you improve on that first pic?? Diana’s brother (has traveled Mexico and South America) said there are some smaller towns south of Acapulco with gorgeous beaches and they are usually totally uncrowded.

    Is that the same stuff we saw the indian woman doing at the art market? – didn’t you get a little bowl lined with beads from her??

    Yep, it is! I love that thing, need to buy more. Perhaps in PV…

    She is a Huichol woman from San Luis Potosi, and definitely the most authentic Mexican in that mercado! I always talk to her when I go, and this time I finally bought something.

    She also makes a dolphin wall hanging with pale pink beads — it was lovely, but at the time I didn’t have enough cash.
