Out & About in Mexico

I'd thought I'd share with you some of our little outings into town for either shopping or dinner.  It's amazing how cheap everything was there.  A nice dinner costs the same as a cheap dinner in the U.S.  The taxi's were always just a couple of dollars and the buses were like 35 cents!  Granted, the taxi/bus drivers were crazy!!  I remember getting on the bus pictured below, and I had just barely stepped onto it before he put the petal to the metal!!  All they care about is getting to the destination as fast as possible so they can get in as many routes as possible.  It was fun though bouncy around on the stone roads and being around the locals.  :)
You can tell how bouncy it was because I couldn't get a clear picture!

Our first dinner out was a Daiquiri Dick's.  Most of the restaurant was outdoor seating and it was the perfect night for it.  I think this was one of my favorite meals and all the employees were so nice!  That was definitely a theme in PV.

This was another night that we all went out when Kelsey got into town the day after us.  This night we went to a place called Pipi's that I didn't get any pictures of.  It's such a fun, vibrant restaurant (also one of my favorites).  Totally recommend this place.  It's definitely a Fuller family favorite.

The next morning, Lindsey wanted us all to have breakfast at her favorite spot in town, but she wanted us all to walk there.  (We did this twice during the week.)  It had to have been over 3 miles or more!  Luckily, it wasn't that hot out and there was a lot to see along the way.

Love the KFC to-go motorcycles.  Why don't we have this in America??  They had these for most of the fast food joints.  Awesome!

This is the beginning of what is called the Malecon.  This is where a lot of the shopping, restaurants and bars are located.  The beach is directly across from it.

Right below the sidewalk are a log of artists displaying their work of sand castles and balancing stones on top of each other.  Everybody is trying to sell something here.  Ha!

Gorgeous work.  I wish I would have gotten a picture of the rock balancing.  It was so neat!

There were statues everywhere.  I thought this picture of the old man sitting was so sweet.

This was a fan favorite.  Everybody climbed up the ladder to get a picture (this is Ryan).  So fun!

Kelsey, what's up there?

This was also a big attraction.  There was a guy on top with a whistle thing playing music while the rope unwound with four men getting lower and lower to the ground.  They were blind folded and apparently they knew when the ground was near from the music the man played.

There were tons of tents setup to display the local artists work all along the ocean.

Then we finally reached our destination and by that time I had worked up an appetite.  It was soooo good!

I can't remember what night this was but we tried out an Italian place for dinner.  It wasn't bad but I should just stick with Mexican food in Mexico. :)  Kelsey is taking a picture with her arm out where her boyfriend, Austin, was supposed to be.

This little girls swim suite shocked us when we pasted by it in a window.  Look at the top!!!

Later that night we decided we wanted to dance a little bit.  All the clubs where trying to get us in, and we decided it was because they knew we would get the dance floor going!

These clubs were like none I've seen before.  They were huge and extravagant.  It's hard to tell from these pictures.

They even busted out a break dancing group for entertainment.  I felt like I was on So You Think You Can Dance. 
There was definitely plenty to do there in PV.
