Viva Mexico {part 3}

9.15.2011

This is the last Mexico post, I swear!  I just couldn't let the week end without telling you about our zip lining tour and the dinner show we saw.

We decided to do a tour called Canopy River, where you basically zip line starting at about 250 meters above the river and make your way all the way down to the water.  It was awesome!  The Boyfriend and I both went backwards/upside down at least once.  And, btw, I was the only girl in our group to do it!  I don't know if that makes me really brave or really stupid but either way, it was amazing!

Taking off

 We were so high!!
The Boyfriend, flying backwards

And me backwards - look, Ma, no hands!!!


I also rode a mule for the first time.  I had never ridden on any kind of animal before this so I had no idea what to do.  My little guy kept stopping to eat along the way and it took me a while to figure out how to get his attention and keep him going.


The main area also had a restaurant and tequila distillery.  We had free tequila tastings while waiting for our shuttle back to the hotel.  Did you know there are coffee, chocolate, and almond flavored tequilas out there in that big wide world??



Isn't he handsome? ♡ ♡

Another highly recommended activity was something called Rhythms of the Night.  It's basically the Mexican version of a luau.  We had a delicious candlelit dinner on the beach followed by an awesome show but we weren't allowed to take pictures of it!!  There were acrobats, dancers, contortionists, and flame throwers.  I snuck my camera out during the flame throwing segment and clicked a few shots for ya!!  (Luckily I had my trusty 50mm, which works great in low light).





Alright, that's it for Mexico!  I'm sure you're sick of hearing about it by now but hopefully I've inspired you to take a trip down to Puerto Vallarta some time.  I promise you'll have a wonderful time!!

(*The zip lining photos were taken by the tour company.  I didn't take my camera with me so all we had was The Boyfriend's iPhone for photos afterwards.)

  1. I've always wanted to go to Mexico. I want to go there for the food. I love Mexican food. Oh and the culture just seems to be so colorful. A couple friends of mine went on a zip lining tour a couple months ago, I never went with them. I have a major fear of heights! I love your pictures, looks like you guys had a lot of fun. =)

  10. :-))) I really like these adventure photos! That's so awesome that you went on the zip liner. They have something similar like that here. However, it's called the Devil's run or something like that. My husband wanted to do it this past summer before it closed but we never got there. It'll have to wait until next summer.

    p.s. how's Molly? wishing you both a fantastic week!
    xoxo
