The Day of the Dead celebration is November 1. As we strolled the friendly streets of Puerto Vallarta, families and merchants were preparing for a holiday that predates our Halloween. Appropriately, we sunned, dined, drank and relaxed on PV's most popular stretch of sand - La Playa de Los Muertos, the beach of the dead. Indeed, our condo overlooks the beach. In the photo above, our white "piano building" is visible above the craggy rock and beneath the overhanging trees.
In case all this should sound morbid, you must not have seen the lively depictions of the dearly departed enjoying themselves in the afterlife. The dead apparently get up to all of the tricks of the living. And they have no use for timeshares either!
