When I visit a highly traveled spot like Puerto Vallarta, it’s fun to explore a unique aspect of the environment that a typical tourist wouldn’t pay attention to. The red adobe brickwork is a key feature of this popular tourist destination. My guide offered to take me to where these bricks are hand made, and I happily agreed. He said with the advent of mass produced bricks and places like home depot, bricks made the traditional way have become more of a novelty and are more expensive for building. He took pride in the fact that he uses these handmade bricks for his own house.
