This was quite the trip! We used a certificate from our membership with Holland America and only had to pay taxes for the week at the Grand Mayan Vidanta Nuevo Vallarta Resort. This place was so huge it was like a mini city, complete with lazy river, 10 pools, great beach, great food, and it's own grocery store. The resort had beautiful vegetation all over. We had a great room complete with it's own plunge pool on the balcony and complete kitchen. But with all things in life, when things are too good to be true they usually are. After not even being there 24 hours, we were conned into a breakfast that turned into a 6 hour sales presentation with the most aggressive salesmen I have ever met. It was so awful. We almost cut our trip short and came home, but decided to stick it out. The rest of the week was great until the end. Great weather, pool days, beach days, fishing, great food. It was all great until the last day of our trip, poor Henry got extremely ill and dehydrated, to the point that as soon as we were back in the states we rushed him straight to the ER where he received 4 bags of IV to get his fluids back to a healthy level. I'm happy to report he is doing well and back to his old self again. But it is best to try to remember the good times, as it was nice to get away from the cold and the moving boxes and the stress of work and life. We are grateful we were able to go and spend some good time together.
A night out!
Fishing day! We chartered a boat for just the two of us and these were the first 2 fish we caught that morning! Then caught atleast 10 more fish. We saw humpback whales and dolphins too! We had a great time on the water!
