For the flight to photograph the coast of Jalisco, we first flew overland from Manzanillo to Puerto Vallarta. Puerto Vallarta is on the Jalisco/Nayarit border and that is where we began to photograph the coast. Below are the photos I took on the way to that starting point. Note that there are 65 photos displayed on three pages. Links to the other pages are found at the top and bottom of each page.
