After having an amazing time exploring the remote island of Isla Isabel, we head for the relative ease of the La Cruz, Puerto Vallarta area. With everything a voyaging cruiser could ask for we decide to take advantage of the relaxed atmosphere, friendly people, and easy life to complete a few boat projects and explore what the area has to offer. Our prep list for the passage to Hawaii becomes one item shorter after we get our solar panel, the lifeblood of Resolute’s power system, lifted out of the way of danger from boarding waves.
Taking advantage of some great sailing weather we head to nearby Punta de Mita and soak in the warmth and hospitality this small destination has to offer. Besides having some pretty legendary surf breaks, the area may have some of the best fish tacos we have ever tasted. Uh Oh, watch out Baja!!
