I owned too many sailboats, including one I lived on in Antigua before moving to Napa Valley. I also was once a contributing editor to Sail magazine.
Of course, I also write about wine all the time.
But let’s be honest: The big draw was Puerto Vallarta itself. I hadn’t been there in almost 30 years, but I remember it as a slightly sleepy fishing town, smaller than Napa and made famous when Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton hung out there when he was making John Huston’s “Night of the Iguana.”
They didn’t have to ask . . .
