Exploring the Town of Puerto Vallarta

Puerto-Vallarta-9

Before getting to our final destination of the Majahuitas Resort, we spent our first day in the heart of Puerto Vallarta. As our plane was about to land, we were already captivated by the magic of Puerto Vallarta when seeing the beautiful green lush land below through our small airplane windows.

We checked into the Westin, and immediately jumped into a cab to explore.

After a day of traveling, and three hungry children, we took the recommendation of our friends and had lunch together at Pipi’s. Known for their flaming fajitas and massive margaritas, our family spent hours talking over dinner, while the children played together at a playground across the street. After dinner, we all met-up together at the playground to share our excitement about the upcoming days at the Majahuitas Resort.

The clouds were starting to gather in the skies above as we walked along the cobblestone steps to the shoreline.

The children admired the beautiful sculptures while my husband and I fell in love with the culture of the town. As we neared the church in the center of the town, a large flock of birds took flight, just before the rain started to come down.

Our family took shelter under an awning while savoring every moment of the beautiful music floating in the air.

Soaked from the rain, we finally made our way to our destination to attend Sunday Mass at the Church of Our Lady Guadalupe. Since the unexpected rain caused us to arrive late to service, we took our seats in the back of the church. Tears rolled down the cheeks of my son as the music from the service created a deep emotion inside of all of our hearts that none of us will ever forget.

As the Sunday service came to an end, so did the rain. As we walked along the streets of Puerto Vallarta, the friendliest young cab driver tooted his horn at us to give us a ride.

As we drove through the wet streets inside of the tiny cab, the driver blared our kids favorite American songs. We all sang together with our cab driver to the songs as he zipped around town to bring us back to the Westin Hotel.

We ended the evening with swimming in the pool before heading to bed for our family adventure to begin the next day in Majahutias.
