Tecomate Fruit

I was out in Ranchito the other day getting a trailer hitch made and this fruit tree was in the front yard. I asked what it was and he said, Cuastecomate. Now I learn that Cuastecomate means coastal Tecomate trees ... not much difference either way.

The fruit is not to eat but rather is medicinal. When it turns brown the top is cut like a bowl and alcohol is inserted. After sitting a few weeks the brew is supposed to be good for asthma and other breathing problems

Tecomate fruit about the size of a large grapefruit

New watersport option for Melaque

There's a new shop on the west end that rents and gives lessons on Laser Sailing and Sailboards. They say they rent Hobie Cats but I've not seen them yet. Prices are still in Dollars indicating that they are new here and not yet part of the community (we use pesos here) ... but maybe they will catch on after awhile. Their web site also needs a lot of work to be user friendly. Vamos a ver!

Web site could use some work .... but!
