Sylvia and David with romantic sunset...
On the 13th I slept in while David entertained himself reading and looking out the balcony. I was horrified to see the time and also very sad that I didn't feel better. My doctor had given me a Zpack RX medicine that I had been saving in case David got my bronchitis... but he didn't get sick so I took it.
We could tell it was going to be a down day so we went out to the beach and watched the waves. There was a beach house that had snacks and we got juice and pizza for lunch/breakfast. We relaxed but suddenly large machenery began working near by..... I turned around and saw the motel was planting palm trees on the beach. It was very interesting to watch them dig holes and carry the huge 20 foot palms over.
Setting in the tree
The palms had rootballs but no dangling roots. A man with a machete trimmed the tops and the coconuts off. Then they carefully balanced the root ball over the hole. Then they deftly lowered in in over the hole and dropped it neatly in. The root was about 6 feet down. The rope was retied further up the tree and it was stood up. Many of the employees stood around and directed until it was straight then the sand was pushed into the hole. They transplanted and planted 10 or so... David loved it because boys love machinery and I loved it because it was gardening....
It was the first time we had been to an all inclusive motel.
Hola Puerto Vallarta Motel
We were amazed that they brought us beer and fruit although we did not ask for it. We had missed breakfast but we made up for it with brunch. There was a beautiful beach, pool and deck. We hung out on the beach as we aren´t really pool people. ... It was fun seeing the families .... We really love how the Mexican men are so devoted to their children. It was sweet seeing them walking holding infants and helping their kids swim. The families stayed together as a group swimming, building sand castles, wading or sitting under the umbrellas. It was heartwarming to see how much they interacted and enjoyed each other.

All Inclusive motel ~ central, ocean front and friendly
Hola Puerto Vallarta was not a luxury motel. It was, however, a good motel for casual people who did not require the 5 star pampering. We thought th… read entire review
