406--Mexico: Life in Puerto Vallarta
@ CherieSpotting     Feb 02 2008 - 18:17 PST
cherie writes: Life is Mexico is slow and spicy: days are filled with beach walks, kayaking, and sailing. Puerto Vallarta is full of everything from balmy nights and breaching whales.

You never know what you’re going to see when you walk the docks—from an alligator or turtle, to a dog or an ostrich. But if you head into Banderas Bay, you certainly see whales, rays and dolphins—the marine life are often leaping out of the water in a display of pure joy (dolphins) or scraping the barnacles off their backs (whales) or escaping predators (rays).

From the stunning arches of Los Arcos to the colorful waterfront villas near La Cruz, here is a glimpse of life in Puerto Vallarta, Mexcio.
