Week Three Plus in Puerto Vallarta

Actually we have moved from Puerto Vallarta in the state of Jalisco to Bucarias in the state of Nayarit. We have moved from Villa Del Palmar Downtown, as it is referred to now, to Villa Del Palmar Flamingos. This is a much newer resort, opened in 2005, 20 years after they started building VDP Downtown. The rooms are much larger with 2 baths, a laundry room, huge kitchen and dining room and huge deck.
Hard to leave the deck. I do go to water aerobics daily and we go down to the spa at sunset.
Last bit of shopping with Alicia, our favorite beach peddler, before we left VDP Downtown. She has just what you want, as long as it is a sarong or a beach dress. I'm getting very tan. Even William, who stays out of the sun, is getting some color.
Watching for the sunset our first evening at Flamingos.
Not too bad.
The first time in the pool there were iguanas, pretty big ones, on the small grass islands in the pool. Haven't seen them since though.
This is a pretty big resort. We are up on the 6th floor of building one.
Yesterday we had a Tacatzo at this small but highly rated Taco restaurant and then walked a long dusty block to Mega, a huge grocery/super store. We stocked up and took a taxi back. Too far to walk to Mega, unlike Soriana in Plaza Caracol across the street from VDP Downtown.
Tomorrow morning we are heading out early to La Cruz de Huanacaxtle, on beyond Bucarias on the way to Punta Mita, for the Sunday Market and to stroll along the Marina.
