Comala and Colima Mexico

Comala and Colima Mexico

We left Chapala in the afternoon after the girls’s school let out. About 40 minutes after pulling away from Chapala on our road trip to Guatemala, I realized I had forgotten to pack our Melaleuca essential oil. UGH!! It is an oil I use often for cuts, sore throats, and skin irritations. I was bummed—but losing 1 hour and 20 minutes turning around was not an option. I would have to wait nearly 2 weeks...

Guachimontones pyramids in Jalisco Mexico

Guachimontones pyramids in Jalisco Mexico

We met up with some gringo friends and drove 3 hours to the Guachimontones pyramids near the quaint town of Teuchitlán. We weren’t sure where to go when we reached the town, but convenient signs pointed us the right away. These pyramids are unique because of their unique round structures. There are 3 major pyramids, with platforms surrounding them, supposedly to allow VIPS a better view of the rituals...

First we spent a day at the beach in...

Puerto Vallarta Mexico Malecon

Puerto Vallarta Mexico Malecon

Nicholle visited from Alaska to escape the dreary winter and see some SUN. Unfortunately, her arrival coincided with a hurricane storm that had hit the Pacific Mexican coast, bringing with it loads of unseasonal cold rain for us!  Normally we can go an entire winter (“dry season”) without more than 1 or 2 rain episodes…but instead we had rain for nearly a week! In an effort to see some sun...

Tonala Tianguis in Guadalajara

Tonala Tianguis in Guadalajara

Remember how I said I love the Tonala Friday market?  Most Lake Chapalans balk at the idea of going to Tonala on the busiest day of the week…but we LOVE it! So, with our friend, Nicholle, from Alaska in tow…we first headed out and did a quick sweep of Tlaquepaque before taking her to the Tonala market!  The pigeons in Tlaquepaque were again out in full force… We found some grub to eat....
