It all started a week before the Fourth of July when my sister and brother-in-law, Marianne and Alan Mumford, asked us to go with them to Puerto Vallarta – off-season! We made the reservations and were on the plane three days later.
Their house is in Old Town, one block from the Catholic Church on Hidalgo, and has beautiful views of the Bay of Banderas! Breakfast on the terrace was followed by a walking tour of the city and Gringo Gulch. Of course we went by Richard Burton’s and Elizabeth Taylor’s houses that they lived in when John Huston was filming The Night of the Iguana. We went over the swinging bridges and into the fun markets where locals sold their wares, including fans and flowers that we used in our photos and our gatherings!
Jeep rides along the coast, kayaking, swimming in the surf and great meals with family and friends at local restaurants complete with mariachis made this the best spur of the moment trip ever!
Breakfast and dinner in the casita
