Another TT refugee here. Nice to meet you all! My husband and I are going to the Jalisco/Nayarit coast for a week in February. We're going for a friend's wedding in Sayulita but want to spend most of our time in quieter towns where I can birdwatch, and where we can walk around, eat, and chill.
Initially, I thought we should bus everywhere, but now I'm not sure based on the distance between a couple of our possible destinations. I would be grateful for any feedback on two main things:
1. Are we trying to pack in too much?
2. Should we bus or rent a car? (Rental car recommendations would be appreciated...)
Here's the rough itinerary based on my research, TT recommendations, and the things I know we'd like to do. Our last major trip together involved two weeks busing around Croatia, where our favorite places were some of the very remote islands.
Sun: fly into PV, arrive in early evening
Mon-Wed a.m.: San Blas (for birding and being bitten by jejenes)
Wed: San Pancho (friends recommended great place to stay, gives us the requisite beach experience)
Thu: Sayulita for wedding
Fri-Sun: Yelapa (if renting car, drop it off first)
Your thoughts, feedback, or cries of "Oh god, not that!" will be much appreciated. Thanks, everyone!
