Special Guest writer StayAdventurous Craig Zabransky has a few comments about one of our favourite overnight trips from Puerto Vallarta.
The owner of the local Social Club in San Blas told me “if you can make it through three nights in San Blas, then you’ll definitely return.” Well, I spent the better part of four days exploring the town and I don’t doubt his words. I plan to return.
On my decisive third day, I decided to visit the old Spanish Fort on the hill. Just a few kilometers from the main square, it was an easy drive. And with 10 peso entrance fee was good for the entire day, I decided to return at sunset. Good choice.
Among statues, cannons, and history, I enjoyed the sun’s descent. From atop the hill, I took a few photos to mark the memory, but then started to mentally travel back in time.
I wondered what life was like when the Spanish occupied the fort. Their world, that world – so different from mine. But even with so many differences we now shared something in common. We shared the majesty of the sunset from San Blas.
Happy Sunset Sunday.
