On our first night there, we had dinner at the Murales restaurant that was in our hotel. We were out on the covered patio, and had a great view of the sunset, fireworks and even enjoyed the falling rain.
There were a couple of suspended beds by the pool at our hotel that we loved to lounge on. We spent one whole day lazing on the beach and here, while we read, people watched and dozed. We sipped virgin strawberry daiquiris and munched on nachos.
Aaaaahhhh, those were the days.
Shopping at the Flea Market. Tiny shops piled high + lots of bargaining.
We spent a day on a Jeep Safari through the Sierra Madres. We went through the back lands of the area and saw many tiny towns and farms. It was amazing to see how little the people have, yet they are self reliant. The tour also included a nature walk, lunch and some beach time. Sometimes the ride was rather bumpy, yet our tour guide and the other couples were rather amusing, and they found us quite interesting when they found out where we were from and that we were LDS.
We Ate lunch under this palapa on the beach, in a very popular area of the beach called the Romantic Zone or Old Town.
On the Beach at our Hotel. We were usually the first ones up for several hours in the morning at our hotel and often felt like we were the only ones there. Our beach wasn't nearly as populated as the beach in the above picture.
