Mostly it rains at night, but early on Saturday afternoon, my family and I got caught in an enormous downpour at the big, beautiful Palo María waterfall. It cut short the time for jumping off dark grey granite cliffs into the deep, cool pool where fish swim.

The 30-45 minute climb to the waterfall is on an appearing and disappearing trail, clambering over rocks and boulders and stopping to swim in a natural pool in the middle of the jungle before arriving at a perfectly beautiful place for a swim. Bold locals scale the cliff to the first large cascade and jump into the water far below.
On Tuesday, Hurricane Dora was downgraded to a tropical storm for Puerto Vallarta. The night was a drenching rain, sizzles and slices of bright lightning and rolls and booming thumps of thunder almost directly over our heads in centro. Dazzling beauty!
