For christmas and new years we had visit from Jonas cousin and husband. Also my sister with family is around. We spent the days before christmas in Guadalajara and for new years we went to the coast of Nayarit. We enjoyed the days at the beach although we weren't lucky with the weather. One day we went whale watching, that was really exciting!
During our days in Guadalajara we made an excursion to visit a Tequila factory and the village of Tequila.

For the 25th we went to the beach and the first two days were really nice and sunny and then the clouds came with rain for the rest of the week :S.

|But the sun came out for a while so we could enjoy a swim right before sunset|
One of the cloudy and rainy days turned out really good anyway on the beach. We had a swim in the ocean right next to a beautiful river and tried lobster for the first time!
|Where is the "sol y mar"?|

The last day with Marie and Joel we went to Tlaquepaque which is a nice area in the metropolitan zone of Guadalajara. They sell a lot of hand crafts and have live mariachi music.
