malloryontravel Exploring Yelapa, had the beach to ourselxes most of the time #visitpuertovallarta #ttot beautiful clear ocean, a long half crescent beach, waterfalls and a small, quaint town. The roadtrip is about 8 hours over rough tracks, so the way to get here is by water taxi which is a speedy 45 minutes. It's also how all the supplies arrive, and it's possible to see anything from beers to building materials being loaded onto the small vessels 4w

malloryontravel Every night seems to be a party in #visitpuertovallarta #ttot well strictly speaking in #Mexico fiesta dancers and musicians in the main plaza or along the Malecón, the cheerful music drifting to those strolling among the promenade #art often drowning the beats from the clubs and bars. Immaculately dressed man swirl and tap with beautiful women dressed in colourful skrts or chic dresses 4w

malloryontravel Thinking of the amazing people of #Nepal suffering after the #earthquake Far, far too many have died and many more are homeless. Yet, these indomitable people will survive, they are strong and will outlast this disaster. Until then they need our help, the UN has launched an aid appeal www.bbc.com.news/world-asia-32522398 4w

malloryontravel Not all private lagoons are created equal #visitpuertovallarta #Mexico #ttot waves crashing on the surrounding rocks, providing natural protection from the power of the ocean. Like age old fortifications shaped by nature to ward off the surf, providing a sanctuary for hotel guests to swim, snorkel, relax and sun worship 4w

malloryontravel "Room with a view" over the hotel's private lagoon #beach #visitpuertovallarta #ttot it's slightly overcast and a little cooler today, which is a pleasant change. It'll be more comfortable for my visit to the estuary and sanctuary where I'll hopefully see #crocodiles in #Mexico 4w

malloryontravel #Sunset @Marriott #visitpuertovallarta .... still not convinced this destination is one of the best for watching the sun go down? This evening, the sun slowly dipped below the horizon and the sky turned to fire, like a million glowing embers, the clouds shining with fiery reds and golds ...... I'm a believer 4w

malloryontravel Admit it, this is probably your idea of paradise #visitpuertovallarta #Mexico #ttot private beaches with golden sand, crystal clear ocean with gentle waves, brightly coloured parrots flying overhead, hammocks and loungers to chill in, or paddleboards, kayaks and snorkeling for the more active, fresh, tasty Mexican cuisine and free drinks served at your hammock. What do you think, paradise found? 4w

malloryontravel Further confirmation @visitpuertovallarta is one of the best #sunset destinations #ttot #Mexico took an evening stroll barefoot along the beach, feeling the cool sand between toes, and the almost sensual caress of incoming waves as they flowed around ankles, the warmth of the sun slowly ebbing away as it sank below the low clouds and the sky turned fiery molten, deep, dark cloud striped scarlet, as night gradually closed in the show became even more breathtaking 4w

malloryontravel Just one reason @visitpuertovallarta was voted one of the best places to watch a #sunset #Mexico have to say witnessed a few around the world and they're pretty special here. Looking forward to seeing many more molten skies before i leave 4w

malloryontravel A day in the life of @visitpuertovallarta #Mexico #ttot even on a Sunday a stroll along the Malécon downtown there's plenty to see and do. Watch the fisherman returning, the pelicans circling before streamlining to plunge into the waves, street merchants or vendors selling handcrafted souvenirs or tasty tacos, families relaxing on the beach, braving the surf, or posing on one of the many sculptures which punctuate the promenade. The spicy aromas of sizzling fajitas or fresh grilled fish drifts on the air along with the constant beat from the numerous bars always ready to provide alcoholic refreshment. Wherever you go, there's always a welcome waiting 4w

malloryontravel Sailing boats are such evocative vessels @visitpuertovallarta this sailing #cruise w/@vallarta_advent on a three masted ship may not exactly be extreme but the image of it riding the currents, driven by the winds with the backdrop of the clouded mountains of #Mexico cries freedom and adventure. This particular ocean wanderer probably never strays far from shore, but it still evokes #wanderlust, thoughts of setting sail, reliant only on the winds, following the ocean currents, battling waves and weather. Answering man's most primal call to explore; a nomad of the seas 4w

malloryontravel The man who feeds #pelicans @visitpuertovallarta #Mexico #ttot many dozens of brown pelicans soar over the beaches or dive like feathered missiles hurtling into the crashing surf in search of a fish lunch, particularly near the New Pier. However, why fish yourself when a kind person will do it for you? This appeared the gentleman's only aim, handlining for fish while the impressive seabirds waited patiently for waiter service .... well quite patiently 4w

malloryontravel @visitpuertovallarta the 'faceless' dolls here are fantastic #art #ttot got the true story from manager @Padre_Santo Nothing to do with the Day of the Dead. So here it is; Catrina, the wife of dictator President Povfirio Diaz used to #travel to Paris and return with many expensive, fashionable outfits, paid for with Mexican taxes, she became known as the 'fancy woman'. Satirist and cartoonist Josė Guadalupe Posada thought this was very unjust but couldn't show her face in his cartoons or he would have been arrested, so he created the faceless fancy woman which was widely recognised and eventually adopted as a symbol of the resistance movement 4w
