Princess Cruisin’ – Puerto Vallarta, Mexico



  • Mismaloya Beach – don’t go because the water is not that clean and the beach is full of people soliciting for sales (as must as I wanted to support these local artisans, living minimally wins)
  • Downtown Puerto Vallarta
  • Shopping Mall near the port and Christmas Decor in the heat is weird
  • fresh coconuts (coco in spanish) ~$2-4 USD
  • Artisan Markets and fish pedicures ($10 USD)
  • construction and development everywhere

Lessons Learned:

  • Nada, Lo Siento = No, I’m Sorry
  • taxi drivers will become tour guides for $20 USD round trip (tip extra) to the following locations:
    • mismaloya beach – fresh coco stop on the way
    • downtown Puerto Vallarta
    • back to the port

*don’t let these taxi drivers be your tour guide because they will bring you to places where they probably get commission if you buy something from the pushy solicitors – know where you want to go and take the taxi there or sign up for a tour

"Curiosity often leads to trouble" - Alice in Wonderland Partial nomad obsessed with glitter, values laughing, dreams of living behind wild waters and forests. Passion and aspiration for inspiration. This is where I express my inner thoughts, feelings, and concern for society that I can't in real life because it will be too true and offensive. Please feel free to comment and share your stories.
