While in San Blas, our wonderful fleet got together to enjoy the La Tovara jungle tour - and what fun it was! We saw all kinds of birds, crocodiles, iguanas, etc while zipping through the mangroves in a hired panga. We did apres jungle tour at a local restaurant, and scored freshly baked bread from the 'bread guy' who drove by on his bicycle for $30 pesos (about $2.50 per fresh loaf). We also had fabulously fresh oysters, and good food and drink!

From Chacala, we headed for a quick overnight to Punta de Mita (we hope to spend more time there soon!). From there, we went to La Cruz, in Banderas Bay, north of Puerto Vallarta, where we have been busy busy busy!
