There is never a dull moment along the Malecon (boardwalk) of Puerto Vallarta. It was my lucky day today - finally saw the Voladores de Papantla (Papantla Flyers) performing their show which is filled with symbolism. More in a future post on this.
These ‘bird men’, as they’re also known as, perform by slowly twirling downwards from a tall pole secured only by a rope around their waist as they slowly circle the pole and gently fall to the earth below.
