They wouldn't allow camera's past a certain point and the cost of buying the pictures they took were more than the excursion itself so I'll just have to write what was in this excursion and you can use your imagination for the rest (replace our faces with the faces from the website here).
More is more fun when it comes to adventure, and this tour offers the most activities packed into one fun-filled day of adventure. Enjoy thrilling rides on a series of zip lines, including Mexico's longest and fastest, an exhilarating off road ride in a Polaris® UTV and much, much more.
Located in a protected tropical forest just outside of Puerto Vallarta, you will zip through a stunning treetop canopy on a series of thrilling zip lines - include Mexico's longest and fastest zip line at over 1,200 meters (nearly 4,000 feet) in length and reaching speeds of up to 100 kph (or 60 mph)!
In addition to exploring the jungle canopy from the zip lines, you'll also experience many other exciting activities. Like two amazing rappels off of elevated treetop platforms, a wobbly climb up the 15-meter (50 ft) high Crazy Ladder, fun ride on the Tarzan Swings, plus suspended walkways and hanging bridges. This tour provides endless excitement.
Hop into some of the coolest vehicles around, Polaris RZR UTVs, and test your off road driving skills as you explore the jungle floor on our specially designed off road course. Sit side-by-side having a blast as you drop down steep grades, cross rocky river beds, climb up hills and more.
What sounds better, after crossing the jungle in the Mexico sun, than a refreshing dip in cool water? How about a refreshing dip that also includes a fun and thrilling hillside waterslide? You'll twist and turn as you slide down the hill coming to a splashing stop before continuing your adventure.
Parts of this excursion you could skip because they were pretty challenging but EVERYONE in our family was able to complete it all. The obstacle course up in the trees sounded intense. They sounded like they had such a blast! I'll just have to live vicariously through their descriptions of their jammed packed adventure.
Here are the pictures Taylor was able to take on the trip up the jungle.
When they came home they were pooped.
While they were gone my mom and I went on a walk on the beach, had a delicious big breakfast, and then went shopping.
We took the bus and walked a few blocks to the flea market.
Downtown these apartments are just stacked on top of each other.
The flea market was a maze of shops. I would get lost walking around the place. So the whole haggling business, getting a sweet deal, I thought I would be all about this type of shopping but I really wasn't. I appreciate a good deal as much as any other person, I get a high off of it, I LOVE getting a good deal. Walking around all the vendors were trying to get me to buy something, to look in their shop, just offer a price, etc. I felt like if I talked them down in price I was taking food off their table or something and I felt so bad not buying things in their shops and just walking by. I've done the whole shopping/bartering thing in Mexico before but I've just come to the conclusion that it's not my favorite.
Also I have the hardest time making a choice on what I want to get and I know it would have driven the guys crazy, I am so indecisive! My mom is so sweet and was willing to do the bartering for me. I was so bad at it I kept apologizing to the people selling and my mom had to tell me, "Nicole, you have to stop saying your sorry". You know when my mom says that, I'm bad. I picked out some knit swim suit covers, bracelets, and earrings for the girls, these animal pens for all the kids, a cool wooden crocodile, and a hat for Kesler.
The best part of shopping was definitely the company. My mom and I were having so much fun, I just love talking with her.
We went along the boardwalk shops and looked at all the fun things along the beach. It was such a fun day!
That night Kent and Kathleen got everyone dinner. They bought tamales from this lady that makes them everyday, they were delicious.
I don't know which night it was but I think it was this night where after the sunset that night we turned up the music on our deck and just danced. I think my grandparents think were crazy, we get so silly when were together! I didn't get any pictures, we got video where we did a Michael Jackson dance off but I still don't know how to upload videos.
