is very congested, narrow streets and lots of shops

Puerto Vallarta is a colourful area with sidewalk
vendors, many restaurants, local residential apartments
and high end condos. We have also found that there
are a lot of expat Canadians and Americans living
here. We saw a school in the middle of the city.
The amazing thing about this school is that there
are no windows. You can listen and watch
the students and teachers doing their lessons. I
should learn Spanish!
is so much to look at in Centro, Romantica and the
Hotel zone in the downtown Puerto Vallarta area.
We will be going down there many times. Some of the
restaurants we have visited so far are Daiquiri Dick's,
Joe's fish shack, Memo's pancake house and Cheeky
Monkeys. There are many more and we plan to visit
some of the better ones. Cervesa's are usually $12
to $20 peso's or a dollar a beer!!!
not resist this picture. These pelicans are everywhere. Also every morning
divers are out diving for oysters. Later they can be seen preparing the oysters
with lime juice for sale along the Malecon. Talk about fresh oysters!
