Passport to Adventure Exploring the “Costa Azul,” Mexico
The Blue Coast offers a look at the real, undiscovered Mexico. Once a surfer’s hideaway, the beaches and surrounding jungles now provide exciting terrain for horseback trips, kayaking, hiking and mountain biking. Hosts Julie Conover &Mark Jennings explore the cliffs and caves of the Marietas Islands, home of the rare Blue Footed Boobie birds, and meet a character who gives them a taste of the local surf culture. The mystic Huichol tribe represents one of the most intact ancient cultures existing in the world today, and they live high in the mountains beyond the Costa Azul. They create whimsical artwork that documents their spiritual traditions and has become a favorite of collectors around the world. A visit to the picturesque, coastal town of Puerto Vallarta rounds out the Mexican vacation experience.
