Day one in San Pancho, Mexico brought us THIS sunset. Needless to say that we fell in love with the place straight away. We eventually lived in this wonderful little town for two months and every night we would head to the beach with all the other locals and watch spectacular sunsets whilst drinking the world’s greatest margarita’s. When the sunsets were extra special we would all stand up and applaud the magic of nature.
San Pancho is on Mexico’s pacific coast about an hour’s drive north from Puerto Vallarta. It is one of the most memorable places we have ever visited for many reasons. I will describe the town in more detail in an upcoming blog post, but to give you a feel of the place in the two months we lived there, we witnessed humpback whales breaching every morning from the beach, we volunteered with a local children’s organisation to help them put on a children’s circus (with the help of the founder of Cirque du Soleil!) and more importantly, we made lifelong friends.
Plus, we visited the above beach every day. It is one of the most spectacular beaches we have seen. Karen described it as “Alive” and she is spot on. Apart from the whales, there were many types of birds dive bombing the ocean to catch fish and the large waves would create a crashing soundtrack, which at night you could hear half way up the town. San Pancho will always live in our hearts.
