Border Crossing

Ever since our Mexican Riviera cruise in the spring of '09 we vowed to go back to Pueto Vallarta to pick up some more tequila.  Like alot of folks I've had a love/hate relationship with tequila, mostly hate, until that cruise and the discovery of El TrigueƱo reposado.

Still searching for a replacement
Ever since I've been trying to find a worthy replacement in the states to no avail. The time was right for a quick return trip to PVR to try and round some up. We had some timeshare points to use up as well, so it worked perfectly for a long weekend getaway.  Of course I hadn't considered that most non-food establishments would be closed on Sunday thereby practically nullifying our attempt to pickup a bottle of the desired goods.  We opted to look in town for some good deals.  A few people suggested we venture to La Playa, the tequila superstore.  We settled on a couple of bottles of Don Julio, rolled the dice on a chocolate flavored tequila and had to pick up a super cheap bottle of Kahlua.  Other than that we simply relaxed poolside, had a few wonderful meals and listened to the roar of a severe thunderstorm in the middle of the first night.  Aside from the extremely high humidity the temperature was pleasant, a big change from our arid conditions back home.  Until our next visit down south, adios amigos!
