Default The cruise port in Puerto Vallarta

When I was recording in Puerto Vallarta I filmed a guy take down the flag at the back of the ship - any idea why they do that?

In the Navy, it's referred to as Shifting Colors. The flag of the ship's country of registration is flown on the back of the ship when underway. When in port, it's customary to fly the flag of the country it's visiting, as a show of respect.
