Our honeymoon was heaven on earth :) I loved every minute of it! There was constant sunshine and instant access to the beach. We stayed in a huge resort that was all inclusive, so it was a little like being on a cruise just without the sailing part. It was a four diamond resort, and we highly recommend it! Every meal was a buffet, and every single time we left our room that felt like a suite, I swear someone came and tidied it. There were seven pools, a swim up bar, and free kayaks for use in the bay the hotel was in. Brad ordered a virgin something or other at every opportunity. Also, we now love Mexican cheese.
Besides pool lounging and eating, we went out on several adventures: a jungle zip-line tour, a whale watching tour, a trek through the downtown area, and our own kayaking expedition. Also each taxi ride to and from our hotel was a death defying experience. Traffic laws there are nothing like they are here...
Anyway, our stay in Puerto Vallarta has now become my happy place that I go to when Provo is bleak because of snow and lack of daylight. I loved it so much! But enough of me saying that over and over, and on to the pictures.
|There were flower petals on the bed when we arrived, along with a basket of fruit and wine, just because they knew it was our honeymoon!|
|This is the view from our room's balcony. The picture doesn't show the ocean very well, but it was right there!|
|We had this ocean view pretty much every meal.|
|We took a kayak out into the bay and paddled around for a little bit of exploring.|
|This is the start of our zip-line tour. We look like bugs with our huge glasses.|
|He told me to lean back and then he grabbed my feet and this is the result! It was funny and very surprising.|
|Brad started out going backwards, but then started spinning :)|
|Yes I look like a very pale monkey.|
|We loved our tour guides! They cracked jokes about us being on our honeymoon the whole time and let us go backwards and upside down (as seen in the pictures above).|
|This one took a glamor shot of himself when we handed him our camera. Ha ha!|
|Next we visited the petting zoo. We didn't pet this one though. Just looked.|
|We then went for a very cold swim in a river. You have to do things like that when you are young ya know?|
|This picture doesn't do justice to how big the whales were.|
|How many pictures do I now have of Brad and I on a boat? I think this is number 10 billion. But I love it! Being on water is the best.|
|We saw a bunch of other sea creatures on our excursion, including this turtle who didn't notice us until we were right on top of him because his head was stuck in the water. This is him swimming away.|
