May 29, 2009 - .FM3 at last

Salado’s (greetings) from hot dry Mexico today is Friday May 29th . I think I said at one time we were going to be here a week ……. Well guess what ….we are still here. and now that summer has arrived it is hot ,hot, hot.. During the day temperatures soar into the 90 beating on docks and decks heating them up enough to fry bare feet. A trip to town must be done early and a snooze around 2 pm has become very acceptable. During late April and early May Puerto Vallarta and the LaCruz areas went through a difficult period. Schools, bars, night...

May 5, 2009 - Things you see In Mexico

Buenos dias from Mexico. At the present time we are still in La Cruz. We have decided to apply for an FM3 that allows you to stay in Mexico for a year , without having to leave every 180 days. The paper work like everything else in Mexico is confusing and as I think its over kill. First you must give them you passport as well as a photo copy of every page even the blank ones. You must produce 3 months of bank statements, an address where you live and a phone bill from the marina ,a copy of the id tag of the person that signed the letter...

Apr 17, 2009 - Were on the road again

Well its been a long time….. Las Hadas was a place I could have stayed forever, with its white Morrish aches, towers, and bougainvillea covered buildings it was truly a sight to behold. I never got tired of watching the sun rise and spreading down the building and cliffs. The Las Hadas hotel is famous for being the film set for the movie “10” I’m sure some of you are old enough to remember Bo Derek’s memorable run along the beach with her beaded hair swing as well as other parts of her body. As cruisers we were welcomed ashore and enjoyed...

Mar 25, 2009 - Manzanillo, Mexico

This area is dedicated to information about the port of Manzanillo, Mexico and any group activities we will plan for in the future at this port. For more info visit: http://www.gomanzanillo.com/ Ann (luv2cruz44) has volunteered to do the research for this port. A tour of some kind is a must as where we dock is an industrial area and far removed from anything of nterest. Ann has a group tour booked in Manzanillo and if you scroll to the bottom, the list of confirmed participants is there. Tour operators: Paco, Chimal Tours....

Nov 16, 2008 - Punta Perula, Jalisco to Manzanillo, Colima

Today we headed to Manzanillo to spend some time with our friends Chris & Kent to have a condominium there. This will be a bit of a milestone for us as we we are about 8 months late. We were supposed to arrive last February but our little setback in Baja last year prevented it. The road from Puerto Vallarta to Manzanillo (Mex 200) is almost all a narrow, paved, winding road with lush tropical forest. It is such a pleasure to ride. We took our time, stopping a couple of times to take in the scenery and drink some water. Hydration is getting...

Nov 15, 2008 - Manzanillo

It was time to leave Guadalajara for our apartment in Manzanillo on the Pacific coast. We left Victoria in August and were looking forward to seeing the ocean again; more than ready to soak up the sun and relish the added humidity after weeks of dry air in Colorado and Guadalajara. But this Saturday morning was like so many of our other days; we couldn’t get out of the hotel much before ‘the crack of noon’, as Audrey so lovingly calls it. We hailed a taxi and struggled to put all our luggage and the three of us into one vehicle and not two....

Apr 18, 2008 - Arroyo Seco

On to Arroyo Seco! This town is only remarkable, because i happened to have visited there on a surf trip a few years ago. Rachel has listened to months of my bemoaning about a certain guy that sold pollo asado on the side of the road that was one of the greatest gastronomical triumphs of all man kind. Not to dissapoint the same guy was there serving whole grilled chickens, with tomatoes, onions, salsa, and cucumbers. Although the prices have increased slightly the meal was as good as ever, and I am already excited for the next time that i...

Dec 25, 2007 - Manzanillo - through Christmas!

December 23, 2007 arrival at Manzanillo resort - Las Hadas Las Hadas resort is beautiful moorish influenced resort, known for its remarkable architecture of spires and arches adorning a nearly vertical maze of white adobe walls and red tile roofs - all overlooking beaufiful Manzanillo bay. With the hillside chocked full of residences and little real estate unused, it reminded me of what I thought a typical Greek hillside must resemble. Las Hadas is a renowned resort, that not only boasts pristine beach front amentities, but also is complete...

Dec 4, 2007 - Mexico Resort (day 1)

Tuesday December 4th...10:15pm Sure enough, the alarm went off at 5am. It didn't take us long to get ourselves ready to head to the airport. Seems like forever that Sherman has been parked at this casino...yet it's really only been 3 days. We made it to the airport by 6:30am...with lots of time to spare for my 8:40am flight. I have very mixed emotions about this trip. On one hand, I look forward to getting into the consistantly warm weather...on the other hand, I wish I were driving down the coast with Ruth. I'm also slightly nervous about...

Apr 17, 2007 - Leaving Ixtapa

April 9 - Left Isla Grande for Caleta de Campos but the boys got on the radio and found that we had high winds coming up later today and they should last at least a few days. We decided to pull into Lazaro Cardenas instead. We're a little apprehensive because this is a major commercial seaport and the power plant stacks spew out a lot of nasty looking smoke. But we have no choice - so we're goin' in. As we get to the breakwater, we can see 20' waves breaking along the coast. Huge walls of waves, but the entrance is smooth and we have no...

Mar 18, 2007 - Good-bye Pacific Ocean!

Today we are hitting the highway and heading to Guadalajara. We will be on the Cuota (toll) road which is rumored to be excellent. The locals here in Malaque/San Patricio have been wonderful, the vacationing Guadalajarans interesting. Loud, drunk and a bit crazy about sums it up. Friday night we put the kids to bed and went downtown for a few hours, leaving the kids with Jaques and Denise next door. Sure enough, it was the one night that Peter woke up half an our after he went to bed. Of course Peter wasn't too happy to wake up and find...

Jan 19, 2007 - The beaches of Manzanillo

We made it manzanillo today, not without a trugggle though. I have started a new entry entitled " The good, the bad and the ugly" read it for the details. Anyways, we have been to manzanillo before about 6 years ago we took all the kids for 2 weeks to an all inclusive here but things have changed and grown of course. It still remains to be old Mexico with no big time resturant chains and only traditional shopping and some sightseeing, mostly lots of R&R and laid back people. We stayed at a mexican hotel called the Santiago but it was really...
