Los esmaltes o colores del
escudo y las figuras que lleva, aluden al nombre del pueblo a la fecha de su
fundacin, a su Santo Patrono y a las supremas autoridades, bajo cuyo gobierno
se estableci el Municipio de Santa Isabel.
Santa Isabel est
simbolizada por la I latina y su corona de tipo medieval. Los esmaltes plata y
rojo, que son los antiguos colores de Hungra, representan la pureza y la
caridad; virtudes que ms resplandecieron en la indigne princesa, Duquesa de Turingia, por su matrimonio y ejemplo de soberana.
El Apstol Santiago est
simbolizado por las veneras, denominadas tambin en la herldica con los
nombres cristianos de conchas de Santiago o conchas de Peregrino, debido a que
fueron emblema de romeros, peregrinaciones y santuarios en la Edad Media. En
Espaa, llegaron a identificarse tanto con las famosas peregrinaciones a
Compostela, que vinieron a convertirse en insignia de dicho Apstol.
Las conchas recuerdan,
adems, que el territorio de Santa Isabel es rico en yacimientos arqueolgicos
de los indios tanos, habitantes precolombinos de Puerto Rico. Estos
yacimientos, generalmente, son denominados concheros, debido a la abundancia de
conchas y caracoles que en los mismos se hallan. Recuerden, adems, que en el
mar que bana el litoral de Santa Isabel, antiguamente
se pescaban en abundancia conchas de las llamadas perlas.
Los esmaltes oro y rojo del
escudo y de la corona mural, representan los orgenes espaoles de los
fundadores de Santa Isabel, y que el pueblo dependa de la Villa de San Bls de Coamo, cuyo Escudo de Armas tiene como colores
dominantes el oro y el rojo. La corona mural es el timbre propio de los pueblos
Los tallos de la caa de
azcar que rodean el escudo, aluden al principal producto agrcola de Santa
Isabel y a elementos caractersticos de su paisaje.
La Bandera de Santa Isabel
se describe asi: Pao de las proporciones usuales,
dividido horizontalmente en tres franjas del mismo ancho: blanca la superior,
amarilla la central y roja la inferior, con el ornamento de los tallos de caa de
azcar o sin ellos.

7 days| Yacht route in Mexico| Puerto Vallarta-Yepala-Isla La Pena-San Blas-Isla Isabela-Chacala-La Cruz De Huanacaxtle
Description: 7-day itinerary for sailing on the Banderos Bay from Puerto Vallarta
2 240 nautical miles
Berths: Puerto Vallarta — Elapa — La Peña Island — San Blas — Isabel Island — Chacala — Cruz de Huanacaxtle — Puerto Vallarta
Banderos Bay is the largest on the Pacific coast of Mexico and the second largest in North America, after Hudson’s Bay. The elevation changes in the bay area are very contrasting. In some places, looking down on the bay, it may seem that we are looking at it from an airplane. And in just half a mile you can be 3,000 feet deep in blue water. In other words, there is a 5,000-foot change in altitude over one mile. This creates a 45 degree canyon wall forked by crystal blue water. On the one hand, mountains and lush tropical flora and fauna, on the other, a magnificent turquoise bay. The horseshoe-shaped Banderos Bay is surrounded by beautiful sandy beaches all around the bay, offering panoramic views of the Pacific Ocean, the city of Puerto Vallarta and the Sierra Madre. Bandera means «flag» in Spanish. When the Spaniards first arrived here in 1525, they were attacked by various tribes of warlike Indians, over which fluttered flying cotton flags of different colors. Since then, the Spaniards have been referring to this area as the Bay of Flags or Banderos Bay.
Day 1 — Saturday
Puerto Vallarta is a seaside town located on the shores of Banderos Bay. A cozy colonial city with cobbled streets, was founded in 1851 and a few decades ago was a small fishing village, and today it is one of the most popular Mexican resorts that welcomes guests all year round. In Puerto Vallarta, picturesque old buildings with tiled roofs harmoniously coexist with ultra-modern hotels. The atmosphere of this resort is considered unique for today: the charm of old Mexico is preserved here, and the resort itself is one of the friendliest, safest and cleanest in the country. The symbol of Puerto Vallarta is the picturesque Church of the Virgin of Guadeloupe (1951) with a bell tower made of red stone. At the very top of the bell tower rises an exact copy of the crown of Empress Carlota, who ruled Mexico in the 18th century.

This is one of the oldest resorts in this state. It can offer visitors several restaurants and hotels, which use palm leaves as roofs. They are especially popular with surfers.

In 1980, Isabelle was declared a national park, and in 2005 the island was included in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Thousands of frigatebirds have built nests in the trees and since they have no natural predators living on the island, visitors can get quite close even to the young and observe from a close distance. That is why this island is sometimes called the Galapagos Islands of Mexico. There is a covered building on the island where ecotourists are allowed to camp — a favorite habitat for dozens of iguanas, who are also not at all afraid of people.
Day 5 — Wednesday
Crossing to Chacala — 54 miles

History of the country
American Indian tribes lived as agricultural and pastoral communities on these lands long before 1516, when the first European, the Spanish explorer Juan Diaz, arrived in the country. de Solis. In 1516 he landed on the banks of the Rio de la Plata, but the Indians resisted the conquistadors, and the expedition failed. Four years later, Magellan ascended the Rio de la Plata in search of a shipping route linking the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Convinced that such a path did not exist, Magellan continued sailing south and spent the winter on the shores of Patagonia. Magellan later discovered the strait that bears his name and connects the Atlantic Ocean with the Pacific. Centuries of Spanish domination followed. It was the Spaniards who named the country Argentina — from the word `argentum`, which in Latin means `silver`. In 1580, Spanish colonists from Peru crossed the Andes and founded the city of Buenos Aires here. At the beginning of the 19th century, European settlers, dissatisfied with their dependence on Spain, began a war of liberation and in 1816 threw off the colonial oppression. However, then the civil war broke out. Finally, in 1861, a strong government came to power in the country. Argentina became a prosperous country, but at the end of the 20s of the 20th century it experienced a deep economic and political crisis, as a result of which the era of the military regime began. At 19Colonel Juan Peron became president in 1946. He advocated social reforms, but could not cope with economic difficulties, and was overthrown. Peron returned to power in 1973, after his death the government was headed by his wife Isabel, who was also overthrown. In the following years of the military dictatorship, many Argentines died. In 1982, Argentina, which considers the Falkland Islands its territory, tried to take possession of them. This led to war with Britain. Argentina lost the war, but did not give up its claims. The military dictatorship ended at 19In 1983, when democratic elections were held in the country and a new government came to power. And despite certain economic difficulties, Argentina has left behind the dark years of military dictatorship, and now lives in conditions of developed democratic freedoms.

In the northeast, the climate is subtropical, humid, with mild winters. The south of the country is much colder and it rains most of the year.

The city has one of the best historical museums in the country.
On the border of Argentina with Brazil and Paraguay is the famous national park `Iguazu`, covering an area of 55,000 hectares. The park is considered one of the modern wonders of the world — these are 275 waterfalls, overthrowing 5000 cubic meters of water per second from a height of 70 meters. It has preserved thousands of species of exotic birds, butterflies and unique tropical vegetation. Nearby are the ruins of the Jesuit missions, of particular interest is San Ignacio Mini, a church built in the Guarani Baroque style. Above the waterfalls are convenient places for water sports. Argentina has both sea and ski resorts.

The modern flag of Argentina became the national flag in 1812. It consists of three horizontal stripes of equal width — the outer ones are painted light blue, the central one is white. In 1818, the yellow «May sun» (Spanish: Sol de Mayo) was placed in the center of the flag. The full version of the flag, including the image of the sun, is called the “official ceremonial flag” (Spanish: Bandera Oficial de Ceremonia), the flag without the sun is called the “festive flag” (Spanish: Bandera de Ornato). The official version of the flag must always fly above the festive one. Both variants of the national flag are considered full-fledged. According to the most common interpretation of the meaning of the flag, it represents the sky, clouds and the sun. However, there are several folk tales that explain the meaning of the colors of the flag in a different way. According to one of them, the blue color symbolizes the La Plata River (Rio de la Plata — literally «River of Silver»), and white — silver (the name «Argentina» comes from the Latin name for silver, Latin argentum). It is also believed that the colors of the flag are based on the traditional colors of the Bourbon family. According to another version, blue and white are the colors of the robes of the Virgin Mary.
In Argentina it is customary to give a tip, which is 5-10% of the service bill, in expensive establishments it is often already included in the bill.
The official language is Spanish. Also used German, French and Italian
