Mexican Travels Puerto Vallarta

Puerto Vallarta y Punta Sayulita

Puerto VallartaI played a wedding near Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, and had a cool travel experience. First, the venue was picturesque. As you can see in the photos, Punta Sayulita overlooked the gorgeous Sayulita beach. Second, they have a bungalow right on the beach where you can get a massage.

The town of Sayulita itself is known for its charming, authentic atmosphere with its cobblestone streets, a variety of artisan boutiques, open-air cafes, restaurants and friendly locals. It’s also as a fun surf destination that’s suitable for all level of surfers.

Turns out, I had a few hours between sound check and the wedding, so I wandered down the path in my beach clothes. There were so many rocks, cracks and potholes in the road that one of my sandals ended up breaking as I wandered through the cute shops and eateries on the street next to the beach. I decided to just go for a massage, and the ladies next door offered to repair my sandal while I got a massage.

The masseuse was professional, and I could hear the sound of lapping waves. After the massage was over, I went next door to collect my newly repaired sandal and it looked better than ever! I shared some laughs, a fresh coconut from a nearby tree, and my broken Spanish with these kind ladies just trying to make a buck. One thing I love about travel is the random experiences and the people you meet.
