I first came to Puerto Vallarta in 1980 and fell in love with the people and their culture. Puerto Vallarta was a small fishing village then and the biggest hotel was El Tropicana where I stayed for 10 days located on Playa Los Muertos. 3 years later I literally packed my bag and backpacked around Mexico, I explored the Yucatan peninsula, Chiapas, Oaxaca, and the coastline of the Pacific ocean.
I spent 1983 and 1984 living in a hammock and teaching English as a second language in Tapachula, Chiapas. I returned back to Canada knowing one day I was going to live here...
But I had to make a plan ... ask me how I did it? A house and a condo later in Mexico!
As an avid runner I successfully ran and finished over 30 races; 2 ultra marathons, 18 marathons (3 Boston), trail races, 2009 Canadian Champion 50 k Ultramarathon title holder for Female 50 + category, 2013 First place Female 55+ Half Marathon Nuevo Vallarta and second place in 2016. In celbration of Puerto Vallarta 100 anniversary, I just ran and finished the first Puerto Vallarta marathon on April 15, 2018. Walked and completed "El Camino de Santiago de Compostela"; the north route 867 km, summer 2015.
