Where the other half playCary
01/15/2011, Bahía Careyes
Much of the coastline is relatively remote and sparsely populated. Then, out of nowhere, the cliff sides light up with grand, luxurious waterfront homes in vibrant shades of blues, reds, yellows lining the shore of Bahia Careyes. We drop the hook for a brief stay where Cary and April dinghy to a luxury hotel while Matt and Bill go snorkeling with a Hawaiian sling (spear gun) and successfully spear a couple of fish.
We got into Chemala a bit late in the day after a day of light sailing and motoring. We settled down for a quiet dinner and an eveningon the boat.

Pushed south to Ipala. Matt, Bill and April swam to shore then hiked to the tortuga refuge run by the Univ of Guadalajara. Tom and Cary had gone the previous year.
Palapas in YelapaCary
01/10/2011, Yelapa, MX
Yelapa , a very unique and serene land experience, was our first anchorage which turned out to be quite rolly due to a north west swell. Once ashore we set off walking on dirt paths into the back country which we shared with a variety of horses as there are no cars, other than a few ATVs, in Yelapa. Climbed to the waterfalls set against a tropical backdrop. We also made it a point to find the "pie lady" who walks the beach selling homemade pies.
Back on the road againCary
01/09/2011, La Cruz de Huanacaxtle
After two fast paced, fun filled weeks in Ca visiting family and friends we returned to Dragon's Toy in La Cruz Marina, north of Puerto Vallarta, on Jan 7. Dragon's Toy was looking clean and spiffy as we had the sides and decks buffed and bottom cleaned while we were gone. The next day Tom's nephew, Matt, and his two friends, a married couple, Bill and April, arrive. All are approaching thirty, fit and ready for some adventure; so, we set sail for places south along the Mexican coast.
Boat Maintenance in ParadiseCary
12/24/2010, La Cruz de Huanacaxtle
We set sail for the six mile trip from Nuevo Vallarta to Marina La Cruz. We actually go 18 miles as the sailing conditions are perfect. Marina La Cruz is a very nice new marina located in a small town with a very authentic Mexican feel. We catch up with several friends and enjoy half price happy hour in the beautiful palapa bar above the La Cruz Yacht Club.
