The hidden beach Las Caletas is about 12 miles south of Puerto Vallarta. The only way to get there is by boat as there are no roads and only open to the Vallarta Adventures tour.The peaceful and scenic ride to the beach only lasted about an hour. The boat was a double decker and I road on the top where it was a little more peaceful and less crowded. On the bottom level they had a bar, live entertainment and gave you the opportunity to sign up for activities. They offered snorkeling, scuba diving, kayaking, paddle boarding and hiking just to name a few. I took advantage of the hiking trail, the zoo and the mountain top spa over looking the water.
This is one of the shots I took of the coastline from the boat. I really enjoyed the ride and made me think about the first time I’d been on a boat. It was my 9th birthday and my family and I went on a fishing trip off the Atlantic coast of North Carolina. I remember catching more than anyone else(some fish I caught 2 at a time) for a total of 14 fish. The greatest memory I have of that trip is my dad struggling to pull in a large Mahi Mahi, then finally getting it on board. I just remember it looking as big as me, the biggest fish I’d ever seen. We ended the day with so much fish it lasted us about 6 months. The only part of the trip I disliked was towards the end when I got sea sick. I can’t drink orange soda to this day because of that. Ugh I can still taste it thinking about it…
This was such a peaceful way to relax by the water, before and after my spa treatments. I prefer a hammock over a plain towel any day!
I didn’t expect the claws on the parrot to feel the way that they did, it caught me off guard!
I got the hang of it now!
An authentic Mariachi band serenaded my table during our lunch
