Fun puzzle with great design
Puerto Vallarta is one of my favorite places to be -- and have spent many wonderful vacation days there, staying on the south side of the city. This particular view of Vallarta, while a *bit* stylized, is actually a really good representation of many of the landmarks you'd see in some of the most visited places -- the Malecon boardwalk along the water, sand sculptures, mariachis, the Guadalupe church, the arches, and may sculptures along the water. The Sierra Madres and their foothills rising sharply up the hills and the way the dappled sunlight through the clouds casts shadows on the jungle mountains... really took me back there!
This was my first Dowdle puzzle -- the details in the art made the puzzle fun but not overly challenging. The piece shapes were interesting -- some of them quite unusual. The quality of the box, printing, and piece stamping was top-notch.
