Our Ports of Call... Cruise Trip Part 2...

In case you missed my previous post.... And to make sense to this post... Please check the previous post below...

So as a part of this cruise we had 3 ports of call. This post is for the 1st Port Of Call:

Puerto Vallarta:

Start of the most amazing day by getting on a speed boat for a ride along the beautiful coastline...
Away from the "mass tourism" of the city towards the jungles and remote villages
We saw these huge rocks in the middle of the ocean... These rocks are home to these "blue footed birds"
These birds are found only at 3 places in the world and Puerto Vallarta is one of them... 

1st Stop... A small village... population: less than 300... no access by road.... It reminded me of some of the Indian villages....  Similar homes and similar life style....

We got on our horses for a 1 hour ride to the middle of  the deep jungle.... You can see the jungle in the photo above...
This one is my horseeee....

The journey took us to this beautiful waterfall in the middle of the jungle....

After the horse ride back to the village, we got on our boats for a ride to a nice cove where we went snorkeling.... 

We ran in to some biiiiiiiiig fish along the way...... a.k.a  The Blue Whale.. WE even tried talking in whale.. remember Nemo?? We tried the same way!!

Then our guide took us to another remote village....
Population: less than 85.... To reach here by road from the city is 4 - 5 hours.... boat ride is approximately 45 - 60 minutes.
The local community had prepared a feast for us... Yummy yummy....

The secluded beach by the village... The feast was served along the beach...

Our very funny and entertaining guide... Poncho... If you go to Puerto Vallarta.... Go for "Vallarta Adventures" for your excursions and search for Poncho..... 

The day ended with a refreshing freshly harvested coconuts followed by a high speed ride back to the cruise ship....

Next Post: The Anniversary day and what we did... Part 3 of this post.... Stay tuned....
