......What are these crazy Puerto Vallartans doing!  They swing around a pole upside down for ..........the amusement --and loose change-- from the tourists.  I shoot this from a moving bus

Let the TROPICAL JUNGLE PARADISE Tour begin

Caged, but nonetheless impressive
--You think we'll ever get out of here, Claude--

We were warned beforehand there was a river we had to cross --with shoes and socks in hand. Hey, my barefeet aren't conditioned for rocky river bottoms!  Oh, all sand, eh.
The water temperature?  A little cooler than I expected

Several of our tour group didn't want to come on the hour hike through the jungle; including the woman wearing only sandals.  Good Thinking.  I may regret having only brought sneakers.
I also suspected that several of the larger members of the group would either not make it all the way, or slow the group to a crawl.  But this wasn't the case.  Except for different scenery, it was a "1A" hike with the Sierra Club
