When we first arrived in the tourist Mecca of Nuevo Vallarto over two weeks ago I remember thinking, " OK, we'll meet Kathy and Brian, have a little tourist fun, and then get the hell out as fast as possible". Well once again things didn't go completely as planned. We are still in Nuevo Vallarta. The longer we are here the more I am thinking that this will be our base of operations for the foreseeable future. Within a 2 hour sail we can be in La Cruz or Puerto Vallarta. Yesterday we went to the mall in PV...it was a VERY nice mall and tomorrow we're going to go watch a movie in english there....and then maybe afterward we'll go shopping and have dinner at Chilies, or maybe just grab a Big Mac. OK.. OK so I know right about now you're probably thinking...WAIT a minute...what happened to all the "old Mexico" shit he's been talking about for the past year? MacDonalds?? Chilies?? Steve must have given up on the street tacos and little Mexican Cantinas where 1.00 beer flows freely. Not the case at all. Within 1-2 day trip we can get all of "real Mexico" as we want. We can sail to many different anchorages and Marinas and eat as many street tacos and drink as many 1.00 beers as our little hearts desire. Banderas Bay is well protected from Hurricanes and is a popular place to summer over in Mexico...which is just what we may be doing. Subject to change of course.
