Fishing nets on the beach north of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico
Fishing nets are piled on the beach. A few men stand around the edges. The nets are rimmed with rope and small buoys. Puerto Vallarta is a port town on Mexico's west coast. It is a popular port of call for cruise ships and has developed a vibrant tourism industry. The town is celebrated for its constant tropical weather as well as its beaches and adjoining islands. Recently, pollution from inadequate city sewage capabilities has caused health problems with its coastal waters, leading to a downturn in tourism.
