By Cathie Arquilla (titled red shirt people) - Puerto Vallarta

Puerto Vallarta is 200 miles south of Guadalajara on the Pacific Coast of Mexico. A sweaty affair between Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton in 1963 on the set of John Huston's film The Night of the Iguana put it on the map for many Americans. Today the city attracts all types of vacationers and a fair amount of retirees.

Most New York City children aren't allowed to walk alone from their apartments to a deli — even in daylight — until they are 12, or older. But, just-aced-second-grade Bella earned her liberty on this boat and ran with it on 12 floors of baffling variety, human and otherwise.
