las animas

las animas hike, Mexico

While visiting friends in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, we had the opportunity to take a quiet two hour jungle hike along the coast south of the city. It can be fairly arduous at times and the air was moist and hot. The aim of this hike is to reach beaches with no road access where small restaurants have set shop. Ninety nine percent of their customers come by water taxis, during the entire hike we only met 2 other hikers (Canadians). At the end of the path a long beach named Las Animas fills with day visitors (mostly locals). There we took a water taxi back to Boca de Tomatlan, the village where the hike starts from. Finn found and brought back a sprouted coconut to which he had become very attached. While looking carefully at the ground I could find leaves and fragments of tillandsia but I was never able to spot one in the tree canopy despite near “constant vigilance”. Below are some photographic highlights:
