Manzanillo and Puerta Vallarta

Mexico is famous for its beautiful towns on the Pacific Ocean. On her journey to find love Selena travels to these two resorts.

While Selena doesn't visit the state of Sinaloa, some of its singers are in the story, like Sheyla with her powerful voice. She is also an actress in Telenovas, that Selena's mother and brother like to watch on TV.

Mexico was under the rule of Spain for 290 years, so the two countires and their music are connected.

  1. Manzanillo looks like the port is very busy indeed, but everything else about it and Peurta Vallarta looks so beautiful! What a fantastic setting for your story.

  2. Thanks for visiting, Bonnee, and Mexico seems like a great country to visit. My novel is completed now and Jonno from Australia decided to settle down in Southern Mexico with his new Mexican wife and opened a surfing school to teach the locals.

    1. That sounds super cool--learning to surf is still on my bucket list.
