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 16h

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 17h

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 20h

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 21h

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 22h

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 1d

malloryontravel Enjoyed a fascinating chat w/ Chef @HCAHUMADA @visitpuertovallarta regarding his philosophy about the spiritual side of creating amazing dishes from locally sourced produce. It's a holistic approach producing healthy cuisine which sustaining the soul and not just the body, while supporting local suppliers..... and after enjoying just some of creations I'm sold 2d

malloryontravel Cannot recommend the Viva Tequila tour & museum enough @visitpuertovallarta after learning it takes at least 10 years to produce the nectar of #Mexico, tested my senses of smell and finally enyoyed taste testing blanco, resposado & aňejo the right way, now being entertained before dinner 2d

malloryontravel @riv_nayarit George explains our trip to #islasmarietas #tmsrivieranayarit #ttot also drumming up enthusiasm for our early start. We witnessed a lovely sunrise, blue footed boobys, brown pelicans and a bottle-nosed dolphin which surfaced next to the rib, swimming to a secret beach, wonderful memories w/ @vallarta_advent and a great start to the final day 2d

malloryontravel @riv_nayarit setting out early for #islasmarietas w/ @vallarta_advent #tmsrivieranayarit #ttot a beautiful morning as the sun rose, beginning to reveal the landscape and gentle rolling waves which made our rib ride extremely comfortable. As we skipped over the pleasant swell they seemed to light up as #sunrise greeted us at the islands #Mexico 2d

malloryontravel Dead of the Dead souvenirs, memorabilia & #art @riv_nayarit #Mexico apparently they have a huge feast during the festival but the food is left for 2 days to allow the dead to feast, after this the food hasn't any flavour as the dead have eaten their fill, so it needs to be slung out 3d

malloryontravel Can't beat a good palm tree silhouette #tmsrivieranayarit visiting small & cool Sayulita though a few more tourists here and the busiest beach by far, surfers & paddleboarders are plentiful though the waves don't look very fearsome, maybe a great place to learn @riv_nayarit 3d

malloryontravel Mexican mythology meets modern #Mexico @riv_nayarit #tmsrivieranayarit #ttot just one of the performers at yesterday evenings dinner, some on stilts or unicycles, imaginatively and spectacularly costumed amidst the beauty of @iberostar_eng signature golf hole. Having a mythical character present seemed appropriate in such a magical setting .... either that or I'd had one tequila too many 3d

malloryontravel The stunning setting on the golf course for dinner yesterday #tmsrivieranayarit a breathtaking view over the ocean and a radiant, fiery #sunset was almost upstaged by the spectacular table arrangement surrounded by candles, incredible job @iberostar_eng 3d

malloryontravel The stunning beaded jaguar head above the reception @RivieraNayarit #tmsrivieranayarit #ttot I love indigenous #art so bright, so colourful, so vibrant, telling their traditional stories. This maybe the most impressive reception wall hanging ever 4d

malloryontravel Breakast with @Rags #ttot you're not hallucinating we really did enjoy our coffee in the company of giant, psychedelic dogs and very excitable children. If that doesn't wake you up nothing will! #tmsrivieranayarit 4d

malloryontravel There be dragons here ... and they're wild @RivieraNayarit #Mexico #ttot #crocodiles may not be dragons but they're evolutionary miracles, surviving almost unchanged since when the dinosaurs ruled the planet, resistant to infections which would kill most animals, ferocious predators and yet tender, caring mothers. Great to see them young, free and wild ..... well 2 out of 3 ain't bad 5d
