By 8 am we had peeled off 20 km in the cool of the morning. We stopped to have our cereal, yogurt and jicama at the side of the road. Two teens were busy trying to catch an elusive iguana, for dinner they said. Wonder what they taste like?
After lunch, Dave checked all the accommodation options along the sand as well as a few on the mountain side of the road. High marks went to Hotel Mexico Lind and we rolled our bicycles a few palapas up the beach, to it. The cold shower takes a bit of getting used to, but once you are in, it is refreshing. We sat on our second floor veranda and watched the waves roll in and reveled in this serene scene. .
Germans, French, and American visitors are here to bask in the warm sun and sand and enjoy the good food. We did the same for 3 days........
Our favorite restaurant is Paraiso del Pescador: Fantastic breakfast, dinner and view! Casa Tío Nerone Italian restaurant and guest house is a small place with no view but has delicious food with potato salad to die for... Restaurant El Sueño de Frida (Kahlo)... simple Mexican style breakfast served by really nice people & wifi.
