North of PV


North of Puerto Vallarta is a string of cool places. Lately we’ve just been popping around from one to another, playing, running errands, and hanging out with friends. Sayulita. I’m not sure what was cooking under there. Lo de Marcos. The kids pick up hundreds of mangos every day, and … Read More

Jumping the Shark
