Hanging Out in Paradise

Camanoe was due for a bath. A good one.  We hadn’t been in a marina with the ability to give her a fresh water bath since we were in Mazatlan at the end of December.  Four months without a bath.  Poor girl looked a wreck.

So last week we took Camanoe and docked her at Paradise Village Marina in Nuevo Vallarta.  It’s fairly cheap (about $26/day) and gives us unlimited water use, (sort of) hot* showers, close proximity to Costco so we could restock the boat and a dozen amenities including use of the resort’s pools, (semi) hot* tubs, beach and games.

Our other incentive was that Bob and Camelia on s/v Navigo were docked in Paradise as well and were only going to be in Mexico for another week before flying home for the summer.  This would be our last chance to hang out and it’s so much nicer to be able to walk down the dock to their boat than have to dinghy over across an anchorage or bus over from La Cruz.

We’ve been having lots of fun checking out the little towns in this area with the Navigos and I’ll touch on them in later posts – just wanted to let ya’ll know where we are and that we’re immensely enjoying our time in Paradise. 🙂

* hot = luke warm at best for both showers and hot tubs. Maybe Mexicans don’t like hot water at their resorts????
