Terns on the beach
There are several different species of terns in the Bahía de Banderas, probably the most common sea birds I saw while there.

The surf is fairly strong around Puerto Vallarta, but it makes for great photos!

Building castles made of sand and holes to the bottom of the beach.
Snowy egrets winter in Mexico and seem to be another common bird.

These fellows were hauling bags of cement ashore to a small worksite.

Terns, terns, everywhere terns.
Beach riders with dogs
We happened upon these gentlemen riding along the shore with several dogs.
