Puerto Vallarta was packed. I escaped for most of the day to a hippie beach town nearby called Sayulita. If I ever come back here that’s where I’ll be staying. It was full of surfers, art, restaurants and gringos as well but with a different vibe than Vallarta.
I took a local but as well, I always feel somewhat accomplished using local transportation with my limited Spanish but this area is so touristy I could almost speak English everywhere.
Note to self, learn Spanish and come back to Sayulita.
