Puerto Vallarta - 9 Nights at Casa Corazon

On Saturday March 24th, the others left to fly back home so we moved to a smaller condo closer to the beach.  It was a studio in a B&B called Casa Corazon.  It was a nice little place, but it took us a few days to get used to it after all the space we had at Casa Benjamin.  Here are a few photos of the place.

The kitchen & dining area were actually out on the covered balcony.

Here's the view from our new place.  The orange umbrellas on the beach are at Ritmo's, the place we always hung out at when we went to the beach.  When we weren't there, we were at the pool on the right side of the photo.

Here we are enjoying a glass of wine and the sunset from our balcony.

In the absence of our friends from Antarctica, we were fortunate enough to make some new friends.  Here's James, from Toronto with Dave.

Here's Kelly at The Swedes with Keith & Mark from NYC.  They also own a home in PV.

Our favorite PV Bartender, Manuel who works at The Swedes.

We went to a couple of shows at the Palms. Here we are with Miss Conception, a hilarious drag queen aka Kevin also from Toronto.

Here we are at CC Slaughter's with Brendan & Svetlana from Jersey City.

We went to two other shows this year, both put on by Kim Kuzma.  This photo is from her acoustic show.

As we said before, if we weren't at Ritmo's on the beach during the day we were hanging out at our pool.

Here's Kelly enjoying some pool time.

Here's the view of our place from the pool.  It's the white building with the pink balconies and we're the third one from the top on the left.

Here we are, both enjoying some sun.

Yet another beautiful sunset from our balcony.

Some beautiful Buganvilias

One of the two Iguanas we would see each day on the property.

We came across this wonderful market while walking around Zona Romantica one day.  It had a specialty wine shop, a deli, bakery and a fruit & vegetable shop.

The fountain in the middle of The Mercado, with nice outside seating to enjoy a meal from the bakery or deli.
