We have returned from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. It was hot and muggy, but the alternative was rain in Portland. In Portland when it rains, there’s no escaping the wet. In Puerto Vallarta when it gets hot, there’s always the Pacific. And the margaritas…
In spite of an army of timeshare salesmen who tried to convince us otherwise, we fell in love with PV. We love the people. We love the weather. We love the ocean. We love the place so much that we booked an apartment for six months in a neighborhood called Los Tules, starting October 1, 2013. That’s a picture of the building (the yellow one) at the top of this post.
Inside, a spiral staircase leads to a soaking tub in the upstairs bedroom. Outside, a wide beach leads to the Pacific. There are two air conditioning units, two baths, two swimming pools, and three beds. It’s Paradise.
Just like Puerto Vallarta itself.
If you’d like to see more – of Puerto Vallarta and of the apartment – there’s a four-minute video below.
holy apartment batman! fabulous.

Safe travels to you both. Bernie and I look forward to welcoming you back to Portland; we look forward to seeing you at our house for dinner on Tuesday, September 17. Ike is wagging his tail at a vigorous pace–he can’t wait to see you.

Hi Tom and Louise
What a fantastic adventure you have had in Italy even with Tom’s surgery etc. Hope all is going well with you Tom. Al, my husband, and I loved Italy and wish we could have stayed longer. Your posts and pictures are great. Have a fabulous winter in Mexico and of course a margarita or two.
