February out of the snow and into the sunshine was our dream, and we felt fortunate to book with Lisa into the Villas Las Olas, a well-equipped clean 4 unit apartment for a week. New friends we met there booked by the month, finding the Villas comfortable, affordable, and secure. Each morning we found hot gourmet coffee on the deck to help us start the day, and for adventures, both David and Lisa had numerous suggestions -- one favorite was the Saturday guests from each apartment pooled money to hire a friend of David's to boat us over to the Marieta Islands to snorkel, a thrill in itself. But the highlight was watching the humpback whales cavorting in the water on our way to and from the islands! February is the middle of calving season in the Bay of Banderas. Lisa often shops at the colorful market at La Cruz, and sometimes invites her guests to ride along or will gladly explain the local bus system, allowing day trips most anywhere -- we enjoyed a jaunt to Sayulita. Punta de Mita was relaxing, a full choice of good restaurants near-by, sometimes made better by David's vocal and guitar music.
