We spent a hot afternoon swimming and kayaking in the tepid inlet and jumping off the pier, where two sea snakes were spotted in the water. Lunch on the beach at the Lagunita hotel, a collection of rustic palapas, was delicious and inexpensive – shrimp and ceviche tostadas, guacamole, rice, beans, salads and fish tacos. The polite beach vendors sell pareos and jewelry, and the women who bake delicious coconut, pecan, chocolate and lemon meringue pies, carry them in white covered plastic platters on their heads for 30 pesos per generous slice.

Five minutes after we arrived back in Puerto Vallarta, a sudden downpour created an exciting wall of rain.

“CECIL” – POSTER ANIMAL FOR ENDANGERED SPECIES: The shipment of all lion, leopard, elephant, rhinoceros and buffalo trophies has been banned worldwide as freight by the following airlines:
Delta: United Airlines; British Airways; Virgin Airlines; Lufthansa; Air France; and KLM. Singapore Airlines and Qantas have partial bans. South African Airlines has no ban in place. To protest, and protesting matters: [email protected]
The slaughter of endangered animals is a completely selfish, greedy act. The heads of animals belong on the wonderful animals, not on walls.
|LAS LOMAS DE COAPINOLE|
LAS LOMAS DE COAPINOLE: Perched high up in the green hills overlooking the bay, Las Lomas de Coapinole is a 25-minute drive southeast of centro. There is a large and lovely park in the neighborhood, a splendid view of the shadowy foothills of the Sierra Madres and plenty of horses in sight. The clinic took place at a “herradero” (a location for shoeing horses), with an adjoining riding corral and stable.
