Photographer's Note

It is nice to be back in San Francisco Bay Area after a short cruise to the Mexican Reviera. I enjoyed the sights of Puerto Vallarta, Mazatlan and Cabo San Lucas.

This picture was taken at a very high vantage point above the residential area of the city. Looking at this photo it looks like Pto. Vallarta has a rugged coastline. This picture is deceiving because this city has 100 miles of of beautiful sandy shorelines. Pto. Vallarta is different from other Mexican cities with past dating back thousand of years. Puerto Vallarta was discovered only a few centuries ago in 1541 and was forgotten for the next 300 years.

It was just a quiet fishing village until Mexico turned it into a weekend resort for nearby city of Guadalajara. Then international attention was drawn to Pto. Vallarta by the scandal sorrounding Houston's film, "Night of the Iquana" The star Richard burton was accompanied by the Elizabeth Taylor, who was then still married to Eddie Fisher. The reporters who covered them fell in love with the quaint and unspoiled area. When they returned to their countries the word was out about thiis place.

Today Puerto Vallarta is is a world class resort community.
