Looking Back

2021:
Well, the pandemic continued. And I got cabin fever just sitting around in the US, so found ways to travel as usual.
The big news was that I left the boring bank job and moved to Peru to live for a while.

Well, here's the quick review:

Things that happened in 2021:

Big Travels

Challenges
Didn't get to do any 14er hikes, or trail runs, or any new crazy challenges this year. But I got to enjoy snorkeling in the Indian Ocean in the Maldives, hiking around Machu Picchu in Peru, and visiting more US National Parks. I count that as a win.

Puerto Vallarta 2021 - Mexico

return

overview / intro

I learned to scuba dive and got my certification in Puerto Vallarta Mexico in 2017, but I didn't get to do much else. So I returned in 2021 with Catia and we explored more of the area.

First, we stayed at a AirBnb in the town of Yelapa. You can only get there by an hour long boat ride from Puerto Vallarta marina. There are no roads in or out of the town, so it was quit remote and relaxing. We went on a day boat trip to do some fishing, see Los Arcos National Maritime park, and visit the hidden beach at the Marieta Islands.

We also spent time at the marina in PV at a luxury resort, and did some paddle boarding in the bay. Then we did day trips to San Vincent and Sayulita. We tried several local food joints and the best was Panchos and El Cunado

Recommend:

  • visit Yelapa and walk around the little remote town
  • find Playa de Los Muertos in Sayulita
  • Pacho's Takos in PV
