Another friends visit :)

After christmas and new years we had another visit from two friends from Sweden. We took them to places in Guadalajara and one day we went to Chapala, the biggest lake in Mexico which is about 1 hour outside of Guadalajara. We also went to the coast again (:D) and we stayed 3 days in Puerto Vallarta and another 3 days at my grandparents house in Nayarit.

We found these parrots eating in a tree close to our apartment in Guadalajara

This looked like the stork with a baby delivery by its side.

Puerto Vallarta

In Puerto Vallarta we had about two and a half days. One day we spent the whole day at a beautiful beach (I don't remember the name unfortunately) that is empty from restaurants and hotels.  You find the beach south of the center of Vallarta almost where the city ends.

The other day we took a boat tour to the Islas Marietas, which are protected eco islands. There are nothing else than wild animal life on the islands, a lot of birds. In one of the islands there is a hole where the water comes in and inside there is a small beach, really nice. The only way to get in is by swimming, so we did that. We also got to see dolphins and whales on the way to the islands, the whales were jumping everywhere and really close. So that was really nice!

The Pacific Coast in Nayarit

Simply our favorite place to go to on the coast.

You can't watch the sunset without some snacks :P!

We also went to see some wild crocodiles close to San Blas.

We got to see him catching something to eat, that was scary but exciting!

We found an injured baby crocodile on the road and we didn't dare to move it but luckily this brave man did. We hope he made it. Photography: Alexander Eriksson
