Puerto Vallarta, Mexico was a beautiful place to spend our leisure time. The day was a perfect mix of ecological discovery, natural beauty and spirited entertainment. We were greeted by Jaime, our tour leader for the Sea Lion Encounter tour, at the pier. Then a private catamaran sailed us to a private resort where sea lions live. Marina and Marta, the sea lions we played with, are big, cute and absolutely hilarious when they waved their hands to welcome us. We got nose to nose, kisses and hugs with our sea lions. They jumped over us for a comical and entertaining encounter like no other in the world. After enjoying fun activities with the sea lions, we had lunch and then met and greeted some parrots and iguanas. Also, our physician took his family on the tour, of course with his little cute kiddos, Aryn and Ryan. We really enjoyed the tour. Believe me, this is truly a unique and magical experience full of unique interaction and fun water activities.
