In this photo essay, we present the remaining pics from Puerto Vallarta (taken from 30 August to 2 September 2014).

This is a view of water aerobics.

Here we see the hotel and grounds with the ocean nearby.  This appears to have been taken from a top floor or roof viewing area.

On the balcony of the hotel room, we see our photographer and a view of nearby palm trees.  A popular Mexican beer is at hand, Corona.

Here is a view of the nearby grounds.  Sky, sea and land are all major components of the local, tropical scene.  And, all these present interesting and sometimes changing views.

The sky can change frequently, especially in the tropics.  We present some views of a cloudy sky.  This photo was taken at midday.

A little earlier, this view was captured.  We see a low hanging cloudy (dark) sky over the Pacific Ocean and one of the swimming pools at the hotel.

At a different time, the sky is not so dark.




A fairly clear sky can be seen here.

A few final pictures.  The hotel room’s balcony had a small “jacuzzi” for guests to use and enjoy.  In this view, it is not in operation.
