While my family was visiting, we took a day to visit a few beach communities at the north end of Banderas Bay. We started by taking the bus to Punta de Mita, where we had lunch at the El Coral restaurant. Then we backtracked on the bus to Bucerias to catch another bus to Sayulita. We were a bit overwhelmed by the throngs of people, but we were glad we had a chance to walk around and see the town. Then we took a taxi over to quiet San Pancho for a cocktail on the beach as the sun went down. No one was looking forward to the long bus ride back to Nuevo Vallarta, so we were lucky to talk a taxi driver into taking us back.
