That is one beautiful place. I missed your blog while you were gone. Happy Thanksgiving.

cool sculptures. laughed at the pay phone. sometimes the older hotels have much more 'real' experience and character than the modern places.

I didn't know pay phones still existed! Naked on a sea horse. No thanks. The dolphin one is cool. Great shots. And sounds like the hotel's location and clientele worked in your favor.

The pay phone seems so 1970s to me, but sometimes I swear we need to go back to home phones and throw these dang cell phones in the trash. Have fun, and Happy Thanksgiving!

I LOVE those sculpures; those Flamenco dancers. But the statue of the tourist in the Hawaiian shirt is unbelievably realistic!

It has changed over the years as most things do. Yet it still has its own unique charm. Hope you enjoyed some tequila during your stay and were able to keep montezuma's revenge at bay.

Perhaps you should try being naked on the seahorse statue. You never know what it feels like till you do it. Love, Janie

Puerta Vallarta has always seemed like a great place to visit but I've never managed to get there, so thanks for your photos and commentary! I mean, gracias.

Now that is a nice place to vacation!

I've never been there so enjoyed the pictures. Loved the flamenco dancer sculpture a lot. Gorgeous sunset.

We can make a good tour for ourselves if we get off the beaten track. Have a good Thanksgiving.

Ninety degrees? Dang we got nine inches of snow. Nice pictures. If I ever went to Mexico I'd go to one of those resort towns; everywhere else sounds horrible. So who's the celebrity? Neil Armstrong? Bill Shatner? Alf?

Nice pictures! Happy Thanksgiving to you and Mrs. C.

Looks beautiful and like you had a great time. But, one thing bothers, did that sea horse mind being molested?
By: Al Penwasser on November 25, 2015
I am glad you-all had a good time. Even if we were well enough to travel, news about all of the kidnapping down in Mexico would make us very reluctant to go without well-armed escorts. By the way, my eyesight has improved, but it still has a long way to go.

That's beautiful! The view from your balcony, the sunset, and the sculpture(s). The dolphins were almost upstaged by those parasailors in the background.

Looks like paradise ... and it sure looks like you're having a good time. What a great place to celebrate Thanksgiving!
By: Tom Sightings on November 25, 2015
what a lovely vacation you two had! We have gone to PV several times since 1991 and it has changed and grown- just like a lot of places! The Malecon is one of our favorite places to stroll along- my favorite one is of the flamenco dancers! Have a lovely Thanksgiving!

What a beautiful trip! I've never been to Puerto Vallarta but I've been to some of the Gulfside towns. Happy Thanksgiving - be safe and God bless.
By: Cherdo on November 25, 2015
Oh boy! you certainly stirred up some memories with this post! I'd love to return there one day! :)
By: Ken on November 26, 2015
Yeah, that boy can't be too comfortable. That's my first thought upon seeing The Sea Horse on the Malecon. Glorious photos, though. I hope you and yours had a terrific Thanksgiving, Stephen.

I don't get to blog land as much these days being back at work but when I do I enjoy visiting your blog. Your trip looked lovely. We stayed in a lovely resort about 6 years ago outside of Peurto Vallerto called Grand Pladium. It was situated on a cliff and was stunning. I loved that area of Mexico.

I've never been to Puerto Vallarta. Cozumel was always our Mexico destination. and you did well avoiding american tourists since they can be unpleasant to be around.
By: ellen abbott on November 29, 2015
I loved Puerto Vallarta when we first went there back in the 1970's but once we lived in Mexico we used to avoid it. Too many norteamericano tourists!

Ninety degrees sounds so nice right now. It's barely in the teens here. I wish I hadn't read these posts backwards. I already know who the celebrity is. My bad.
