Puerto Vallarta – Healthy Options by the Sea

Puerto Vallarta may have been crowded at Christmas, but my boyfriend and I had a great time walking along the vibrant malecon, exploring nearby beaches by bus, and cafe-hopping. This was my first Puerto Vallarta vacation, but I have been to Mexico several times, slowly discovering more of the beauty and inexpensive travel not far […]
