I know it is in Puerto Vallarta, but not exactly sure - south of the Malecon maybe one of the beaches close to Conchas Chinas.

Yes - it's PV. This is from one of our first trips to PV. I think it's one of the beaches past Playa los Muertos - where you go to the end of the beach, then take the path up and over the rocks. So that would put it in the Conchas Chinas area.

You got it. I knew you would as you go to Mazatlan every year (hope I remember that correctly).
Only three trips so far. I'm more of a PV or Cabo person.

That looks like the pier at Las Animas.

That last time I boarded at that pier was after I had hiked the trail from Boca on a hot afternoon. DW was sick that day, so I was hiking by myself. I went as far as Quimixto, even a bit beyond, but turned back because it was getting late in the day and I was planning to hike back to Boca. When I got back to Las Animas I decided it was too late and opted to have a couple of beers and catch a panga back to Boca.

While I was looking for a boat, I struck up a conversation with a family from Mexico City, who had hired a panga and were waiting. I offered to split the cost and they accepted.

As we were nearing Boca, we spotted a pod of whales, so the skipper diverted, and we had an impromptu 30-minute whale watching tour, with dolphins as well. Finally we headed into shore on Boca.

I tipped him an extra 100 pesos (which was more than the fare just for the ride).

This is the pyramid of the sun in Teotihuacan. One of my favorite places to go! The bus from México City is less than $60 pesos each way, and only takes an hour. I can highly recommend the Villas Teotihuacan Hotel& Spa (they keep changing their name!). Stay for a few days and really explore! La Gruta is a fun restaurant in a cave - they even serve chapulines!

Edit: Almost forgot - There's a FANTASTIC night time light show on the pyramid of the sun! More than enough reason to book a hotel and stay a few days. Make sure you bring ID with you as they give you an ipod (many different languages to pick from) that describes things and want the ID as a deposit. Hotel concierge can usually get you tickets for a little premium, or you can order through ticketmaster.mx.

I'll post an easy one! I'll preface by saying that there is nothing like seeing it in person, and that your brain will be swimming by the time you leave.

Yup, those waves on Divorce Beach are pretty big. I remember a newlywed couple was washed out and drowned off Divorce Beach one year.

We were at Sunset Beach and the resort has a person watching guests that get too close to the Ocean. I was fishing in front of PBSB and had multiple resort people come tell me about the wave until one guy stood behind me until I decided to go farther down the beach. I did manage to hook a large Sierra which I gave to the people fishing near me.

Bill, Glad to see another fisherman posting. If you went on the other side of the Arch, you'd have probably gotten into some roosterfish, like I did. :)
Good luck again next trip.
