Once back we ate lunch at a restaurant in the port and then again did a little shopping in the flea market.
We then took a taxi to do some shopping in the Golden Zone. This "Golden Zone" puzzled me because there were very little shops and the prices were all considerably higher then Puerto Vallarta or even the big market right there at the port! The prices at that market at the port are actually quite reasonable but as always you will need to negotiate the pricing there.
We then walked out of the port, took a left and then walked a few blocks to the end of the street where we were able to purchase water taxi tickets for $2 per person, round trip to Stone Island. Once we reached the island we hopped in the back of a truck and took a short ride for $1 per person to arrive at Victors. This is a restaurant/bar on the beach. You can have them set up tables/chairs/umbrellas out in the sun and the Pacifico beers are only $1.50 each. The margaritas are considerably more but very large. We also ordered the garlic shrimp and guacamole which were fabulous.
Once we got back to the port we stopped at the little bar set up right before you get back on the boat. More cheap beer and quite a wild crowd. Eventually we had pull ourselves away and get back on the ship. Wonderful beach day and great for anyone on a budget!
Once we got to the canopy site we got geared up and climbed up the stairs to the first zip line. Let me warn you...if you are in tough physical condition, do not do this tour because there are A LOT of stairs. The zip lining was such a blast and the employees were funny and very nice. Although we did take our own pictures we did purchase some pictures and video from them. After we had a mango margarita with chips and guacamole at their bar. We fed tortillas to these cute little critters that they had in cages in the bar. I forget what they were called but they were related to raccoons. Then they had a couple of rooms with little monkeys and a huge iguana. They would put strawberry yogurt on your hand and let you walk into their large cage where the monkeys would jump on your shoulder and eat the yogurt.
On the way back we stopped at the flea market for a bit. The vendors are aggressive, just as they are at all of the ports in Mexico. If you are interested in something you really have to haggle with them to get a decent price. We walked along the ocean for quite a long time and enjoyed the various beach art. There were sand sculptures and a guy that stacked these long rocks on their ends. We eventually took a taxi back since it was getting quite late.
