Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - June 2008

This trip came about because Cindy's friend Kristen from Georgetown days decided to have a destination wedding in Puerto Vallarta and asked Cindy to officiate, offering us free lodging and immersion in the experience. Weatherwise, a tropical storm unfortunately hovered and rained down most of the week, though the sun did peak out as the ceremony ended and returned the day before we flew home.

Touristing Excursions

Rio Cuale Canopy Tour (June 9, 2008)

Advertised as " Higher, longer, and faster than any canopy tour west of the Sierra Madre," this four hour tour took us over the Rio Cuale valley and to an adjacent margarita distillery.

Nayarit Huichol Tour (June 13, 2008)

This eleven hour tour took us deep into the state of Nayarit and all the way to a small Huichol Indian village called Nueva Valey, where the locals welcomed us, performed a ceremony in their temple, and offered handcrafts. On the return we lunched in a hotel in Tepic and endured Puerto Vallarta rush hour traffic.
