Mexican Riviera Stops



Over the Mexican border
In towns and villages stop
Footprints of the pirate hoarder
Still there in the markets you shop
Ixtapa-Zihuatanjo
Where mariachis serenade
Cultural artifacts on show
Place of pre-Columbian trade
Stunning is Puerto Vallarta
Watch whales in The Banderas Bay
Here filmed: ôNight Of The Iguanaö
Glitterati by night and day
Sunbathe on the Mazatlan beaches
Ride horseback at the foothills above
Hear what the Sierra Madre teaches
Brickyards for adobes of love
Escape to Cabo San Lucas
A strategic promontory
Safe refuge from storms and ruckus
Cast lines for the big fish story
