Puerto Vallarta, Mexico Recap

I'm going to break this Mexico recap down into days within this post.  It's really not too crazy on the number of pictures, I promise.

As I mentioned yesterday, we went to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico last Saturday until this past Tuesday night late.  It's on the Pacific side.

Saturday:  When we arrive...we usually see coach buses.  We never carry our luggage when we are with Kevin's company.  They transport it on trucks and it appears in our hotel rooms right when we get there.

We went straight to the pool and hung out with friends until it was time to shower up for the night.  We walked down to the marina with a group of 15.

And had dinner at Bacha's.  Wow, yum.

Fresh guac.

 And tequila shots chased by a shot of pineapple juice.  Ever heard of that?   It was actually really good.

The margaritas were HUGE.  This picture doesn't do it justice.  I had to get a Corona because I couldn't drink it.  Fish tacos - yum.

Tamela & Kevin, Kevin & I, Tom, Jennifer, TMark & Brooke

Sunday:  Pool.

then dinner out with friends.  Best avocado soup.

Our group that night...

The water was so glassy.  Check out the reflection of these boats.

Monday:  Girls hung by the pool.  Guys went fishing at 5:30am.

They caught two sailfish and one amberjack.

Nice group of guys and agent friends.  Benjy, my Kevin, Kevin, Mike, TMark.

Monday night we had the gala.  TMark and Brooke are from Alabama.  We hung with them a lot last year in Paris and Monte Carlo.  Wish they lived closer!

Our crazy table.

The fishermen all cleaned up.

It was quite the party.

Lots of seersucker, colored pants, Southern Tide, costa del mars, southern accents etc.  It was the Southeast region afterall.  

Kevin and Collin.

Tuesday we came back to Charlotte with more fond memories and great friends!  Another great trip!


  1. Can I have your life? K thanks! Hate to be one of "those" girls, but I totally would have jumped on the boat with the guys and gone fishing. :)

  2. Those were the biggest tequila shots I've ever seen! Haha. Glad you all had a blast!

  3. It's official. I need to get a job with Allstate!! ;0

  4. Your life is just incredible! All of these trips!!! I love hearing about each trip. I look forward to your trip posts every day.

  5. So cool! Laughing about the clothes and the SE region...would love to see the difference in the NE!

  6. I mean!! It has NOT been a bad a month for you two!! How Fun!

  7. What a fun trip! Those fish look so huge. Also, the food delicious!

  8. So fun! Never heard of chasing tequila with pineapple juice but it sounds good. Love your dresses!

  9. Oh my goodness this looks perfect!! Love the idea of pineapple juice after tequila shots - genius!

  10. Looks like this was more relaxing than your previous trip-what a nice balance. Do most of the other spouses work? I would think it would be hard to get that much time off or that it would eat up a year's worth of vacation (totally worth it for once in a lifetime experiences, of course), but hard with other obligations.
