We decided to move the boat to the marina right in central Puerto Vallarta for a few days. There were mostly power boats for charter in this marina and the crews would pull in at the end of the day and make big tubs of ceviche to eat on the docks. From this location we could walk to the largest marine chandlery in the area and take a short taxi ride to Costco, Walmart, and Old Town. We spent two afternoons and early evenings walking areas of Puerto Vallarta. While being in the city was a definite change of pace, it was hot. But, we had a good time and great food two out of three dinners. And the best part was we went to the only craft beer brewery in Puerto Vallarta.

Here are some pictures we’ve taken over the last week.

Church of Our Lady of Guadalupe with its trademark Crown of Angels which were added in 1963.  There is some controversy over whether this is a church or cathedral since there is no bishop.  While construction started in the early 1920’s, it wasn’t finished until the 1940’s.
