Puerto Vallarta, Mexico (4/6/09) - A “Palapa day” on a remote beach in Puerto Vallarta was a great way to unwind and start our 2-year round-the-world world trek helping us to ‘Unhook Now’.

We went to Playa Los Animas (in English: Zombie Beach) accessible only by boat. We took a taxi to the end of the road and then a small fishing boat to this Playa Los Animas. Fun day in the sand and ocean with Mexican beer, margaritas, shrimps, and guacamole.

Puerto Vallarta has made famous by John Huston’s movie Night of the Iguana and the affair between Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. 

Stretching from the south end of Puerto Vallarta's Old Town to central downtown, a newly extended and refurbished boardwalk along the ocean, called the Malecon, passes by any number of shops, restaurants, and hotels, and often plays host to mimes, breakdancers, clowns and artists.

The residents of Puerto Vallarta are very friendly and generally willing to help with directions and other requests. Old Town Vallarta (or the Zona Romantica district) south of the River Cuale is more like a Mexican town and less like a tourist trap. English is widely spoken, and as a tourist destination prices are higher than many other places in Mexico.
