Photos From Puerto Vallarta, Part 1
We took our fifth trip to Puerto Vallarta in April, 2016. Arriving a week or so after the Semana Santa crowds left, we found the city to be calmer than past visits. It was a balmy 80+ degrees every day, plenty of sun, and lots of good food. After so many trips, I didn’t think I’d find much to photograph. But, there is always something new. This is the first of four or so posts of Puerto Vallarta photos — enjoy!

Great photos, Peter! I especially loved the animal shots that you took.
Hi Peter, I’ll be in PV for a few months and I admired your photos. Is it safe to carry a big camera around the city? I would love to have mine with me but I worry about safety. Did you have any problems?
Hi Teresa! All my PV photos were taken with point and shoot cameras, not a larger DSLR. I wouldn’t worry about carrying a DSLR camera in Puerto Vallarta, though. I’ve seen many people doing so and I don’t think there’s a huge risk involved.
Thanks Peter. I really appreciate your quick answer. What kind of point and shoot are you using? Your photos are amazing.
Most of the photos on this site are from a Sony RX100. I did recently buy a used Sony A7R mirrorless DSLR, and the photos from Iceland were taken with that. I actually just returned Sunday from a week in Mexico (San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, Cholula, Puebla) and carried my A7R there, with no issues. Those photos are probably a couple months away from hitting the blog, though, as I’m really behind!
Thanks again. You’ll be very happy with A7R. I just bought A6000 which is a lot smaller than my Canon 7D. I’m getting older and it’s too heavy for me especially with big lenses attached to it. I came back from Europe a month ago and my shoulder and right hand still hurts, lol!
I’ll be watching the blog for your images from your recent trip.
Do you have a blog or online portfolio to share? I waffled between the A6000 and the A7 series — in the end, I decided to go for the full frame and more megapixels, I like to print large images and figured it might be a better fit for me.
I don’t have a blog but you can look through my website here: https://1-teresa-zieba.pixels.com I didn’t want to put it there as it might be taken as advertising. Btw do you have a favorite place to stay in PV? Oh, I was suppose to post it as a reply but posted as new comment. Can you delete the previous one?
I enjoyed looking through your galleries — beautiful shots! We have always stayed at one of the Los Arcos properties in PV — usually Los Arcos Suites, but a couple times at Casa Dona Susana. Enjoy your trip!
I’m glad you enjoyed my pics. I will try to take good ones during my stay in PV. Can’t wait.
