Puerto Vallarta, in western Mexico, was one of the best. Beautiful seaside city, with access to remote towns nearby, by bus, boat and horseback. We included it in a six-month RTW trip last year. Definitely one of the major highlights.
PV is fast becoming the 'Bali' of BC, Canada. Most of our fellow passengers were escaping the cold of northern winter for the warmth, food and beer of Mexico. Amazing how we picked up so much more Spanish than we did in Spain. Friendlier people, perhaps?!~
Swimming in crystal-clear mountain streams, descending from the Sierra Madres, was a blast, particularly when we discovered gold dust twinkling in every sandbank, all the way down to the sea.
We're going back to Mexico!!~ :) Reply
