Half the fun of the travel is the aesthetic of lostness.
|"Why Not" (Por Que No)?|
“What will the weather be like for your passage?” Well, let us get our amazing weather crystal ball out and… If we knew the weather that far in advance would we need insurance? If nothing else, we would be zillionaires for having that knowledge, and would have people crewing for us rather than the other way around.

When in the Puerto Vallarta area, we usually stay in the La Cruz Marina or at anchorage. To us it is a friendlier environment. Our nickname for Paradise Village is the Las Vegas of Mexico. What cost $5 in La Cruz, only 20 kilometers away, is $8 here. We only come here when needed. Since the Port Captain where we need to complete our country’s exit papers is located across the way we are spending our last couple of nights at this glitzy location.
Last night, while chatting with a couple of locals, we discovered they call this area ‘God’s Waiting Room’ because they see so many elderly tourists residing here spending their time complaining about the music, the atmosphere, the kids, the noise at the swimming pool, the food, etc. The locals feel these people act as if they are waiting to die rather than enjoy what life has to offer hence their nickname for Paradise Village as God’s Waiting Room.
We would rather see the silver lining than complain but are reminded that you can never replicate someone else’s journey. Each one is unique. We hope we can be an inspiration or a catalyst, but you must seek out your own adventures and experience them yourself.
