Concha del Mar - never again

Why that place is popular with gringos I'll never know ..... except the 8 peso Sol and Bingo. I don't even like Sol but they do have Dos XX's

The same lousy service I got last year. Of 4 beers, I had to go to the bar to get 2 while waiters stood around. I ordered burritos because someone said they were good .... my food never came. We were unsure of the beer prices and asked how much for Dos XX's and they said 20 pesos while Sol was 8 pesos. It turns out 'other beers' are 20 pesos but are two for one from 2-6pm (happy hour). You'd think they would mention that.

At least they do have a nice view of the locals fishing around sunset but so do a number of other restaurants in the area. Unable to get fed we headed for Taco Row and good food for 1/3 the price

Laguna de Tules full of Lirio

We just got back from a 5 day visit to Melaque to visit friends and see how the tourist season was coming along this year. It rained for 3 days just before we got there so was very humid but since it's December, still cool at night. Tourist season is slow with lots of rentals available and trailer parks are not full.

I took an early morning walk along the lagoon and this is the first time in over 5 years I have seen it totally covered with vegetation all the way out to the ocean. Supposedly this is due to not having opened the lagoon during the rainy season - not enough rain !! No wonder I tought it was so hot this year.
