for some reason, all around mexico, and in some parts of south america, mainly in chile, i have seen people sitting in the sand and letting the waves lap over them, with clothes on! this is all new to me, because i want to be comfortable when i swim. i have asked a few locals about this custom. here are the responses i have gotten:
mexican men will look at you and think "easy" if you are walking around with only a bathing suit"
"mexican women don´t think it´s feminine to work out, so they get fat, and cover their bodies because they are embarrassed"
"it´s improper for women to wear only a bathing suit unless they are young teenagers"
i don´t know what the custom is about, but chances are, you will be the only person only wearing a bathingsuit in the water, with the exception of young girls.
Oftentimes I have the question...are there sharks in Puerto Vallarta? I always answer, only the ones that have two legs and stand in a timeshare booth! If you are interested in purchasing a timeshare, do not fall for the line that the presentation will take an hour or so.....not true! Best to go inside the resort, ask to speak to the timeshare manager and go from there. I am definitely not against timeshare....only the way they hook people to go to the presentations! THERE IS NOTHING FREE IN PUERTO VALLARTA! (Well, except for this guide I guess!).
