Next Stop: Puerto Vallarta


This week, I will be traveling to the Mexican state of Jalisco to explore the traditional culture of Puerto Vallarta. This beautiful coastal city is not only famous for its resorts, but it's also where the mariachi musical tradition started and I'm excited about exploring some of that history. I'm also thrilled about the chance to experience a temazcal ritual. A temazcal, pictured above, is an indigenous steam bath and purification ritual. I'll  be visiting the island of Las Caletas and witnessing a traditional dance and musical performance to top it all off. Stay tuned for posts about my Puerto Vallarta experience as well as a round up of my TBEX highlights!
