One of our incredible sunsets - from TUMTAH - the beachside restaurant at Mayan Palace, Nuevo Vallarta.

My sister Roberta accompanied me on this trip to Mexico. We stayed at the Mayan Palace in Nuevo Vallarta, about 20 minutes N. of Puerto Vallarta, a quaint city with stucco homes and red tile roofs.. It's a beautiful hotel, with Mexico's largest pool! We had a wonderful time, with a jungle tour and a sunset cruise on a sailboat and many pleasant hours in the beachside pool. One of the most special parts of our visit was spending time with Lois & Tirso Serrano - she is our father's cousin. Here are some really nice pictures I took on my new Pentax Optio S4i. Enjoy the photos and I can highly recommend visiting Puerto Vallarta. Buenos dias, Teresa Kasner.

BAKAL - a beautifully designed restaurant - all thatched, open-air, great cuisine, sunset views.

A great place for dinner, eh?

My favorite photo! A 6 foot long Iquana crawled up a tree at the River Cafe and posed for me! :-)

The view from our room at the Mayan Palace, Nuevo Vallarta. Mexico's largest pool! (Ocean is behind palms)

The adult end of the pool, next to TUMTAH, our favorite alfresco restaurant at our hotel.

Just another day in paradise - a lovely sunset... *grin* ~*:-)

The "Malecon" - a famed beach walk in old town Puerto Vallarta, right along the beach.

Los Arcos - The arched rock south of the old town, we stopped on our way to the jungle.

The craft cabanas on the turn-out to see Los Arcos. I got my woven bag and tie-dye pareo here!

El Eden - The destination on our jungle tour, the set of "Predator" - we went swimming in the cool waters here.

El Eden - see the burned out helicopter used in the film? This is a restaurant, bar, crafts & swimming hole.

This is a view from the restaurant we dined at on the tour, I had steak & lobster, yum!

Heading out on our Sunset Sail - we passed by this huge cruise ship.

Our sunset sail - all the pina coladas you could drink, plus fantastic hors d'oeuvres.
The boat was a 44 foot Nelson, flush deck, racing design - ca. 1978. My sis or I was at the helm 90% of the cruise!

Our cousin's condo on the right, at the end of the Malecon, next to the Rio Cuale, 9th floor, GREAT VIEW!

Our last sunset... ::sigh:: We leave tomorrow afternoon. It was a wonderful week.

This is the fantastic shot of Mt. Hood - I took it from the airplane window. We are home.
A side note - Mt. St. Helens began eruption this week!
