    Very nice Island! My favorites are 1, 4, & 6.

    I love the bright colors of the stall (#1), the contrast between the bright reds of the fence and the grey grass of the grass umbrellas (#4), and finally I have always loved interesting doors, windows & gates (#6). Good work!

    BTW, I hope you had a good time!

    @Cayuga Morning I did have a great time. Weather was wonderful 27/28C, lots of beach time and lots of people/tourist watching time too. Food was terrific as well.

    I liked all of your pics. They are interesting and colourful; a good representation of things tourists can look at and buy.
    I lived and travelled in Mexico once and thoroughly enjoyed it. I liked the colour, history and people. We took some language courses when we came to a place where we wanted to stay for a while. We looked for a house to rent and then came the lessons.After leaving Mexico we travelled to Spain. It was all a great adventure.

    Do you expect to return for future vacations?

    I tend to go to Mexico, at least, once a year. Almost always to Puerto Vallarta where the economy is geared to tourists so everything is "easy" for somebody not living there. Locals are used to non-locals, seems to actually like us tourists and are very welcoming and willing to cater to (probably) all the stuff they have to put up with ;)

    I have never been to P.V.; however I have been to Acapulco. I suppose that the infrastructure for tourists may well similar. At the time we were not travelling with a package tour, we were on our own and therefore travelling on a shoestring, so to speak. We stayed away from the expensive tourist quarter and stayed instead in the "old town" in an older hotel that was something right out of the 40's. It was wonderful and there were small shops to buy tourist items that were about the same as what you have shown. It was such a pleasure chatting with the the local folks there and eating in some nice little restaurants. The locals could not understand why we chose the old town instead of the tourist quarter.

    So yeah, your great postings really bring back good memories to me. Cheers.

    Thank you Cayu. It was indeed wonderful.

    I think at some point decades ago a Mexican Entrepreneur bought a boat load of tourist items aka junk to sell, distributed it all throughout Mexico and they're still selling the same stuff! ;) I'm not sure the tourist souvenirs that are sold there have changed at all in all the time I've been going to Mexico.
