We checked into our gorgeous room that overlooked both the pool and the ocean - from BOTH our balconies. Then we decided to go for a walk. We walked up and down the beach, exploring our property and the sister resort next door for families. Because we were at the Adults Only, we had access to both resorts, even though the families did not have access to ours. So there suckers! Although Jon was very jealous of the waterslides they had for the kids.....We dined at the buffet at the family resort and were less than impressed. "Ah well" we thought. "Who cares if the food isn't good, its free and there's plenty of it!" And to ensure we kept this attitude we headed to the bar. Here we met Victor, our bartender for the trip. He poured us some heavy shots of El Jimador tequila and kept them flowing. We also met Alex and Luis, who are from Guadalajara and were in Puerto Vallarta for a boys golf trip. They invited us to join them the next night back at the bar for some Mexican moonshine, Jon quickly agreed. We drank some more tequila and beer before heading back to our rooms for the night.
We spent the entire next day lying by the pool and reading. The hotel would definitely be great for spring breakers because every hour there is some crazy activity like tequila volleyball, or the sun dance. Jon and I didn't participate, but it was fun to watch. We headed back to the bar where Victor introduced us to "Palomas" which are grapefruit juice, tequila, and lime juice. Way better than Margaritas. We met Jason and Jessica who were married the night before and on their honeymoon.
More to come, I promise.
