A Taste of Puetro Vallarta - bus ride to the older part of the city. A trip to the "Opal Mine," tourist shop that sells expensive fire opals, a bit more walking, back on the bus, a walk through another area with nothing much of interest except a bad sculpture of Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton. Then to the restaurant for a cooking lesson. Highlight of the trip! Small (but free) Margarita. You learned to make salsa (with great chips!), guacamole, a tostada with shredded pork, and a chicken enchilada with mole sauce. Much more food than we expected and it was very good.
