Christmas at Coconutz

Posted by on January 3, 2015

I have heard since we came to Mexico, that the Mexicans flock to the beaches for Christmas and Easter Holidays.  But this was the first time that I witnessed it first hand.  I have also heard to avoid these holidays for your beach visits.

I guess that would depend on the individual.  It is not something I would want to experience on a routine basis, but it was sort of exciting, because it was such a change of pace from the normal sleepy, laid back beach town atmosphere.

People came by the bus loads, by the  truck loads, on bicycles.  There were almost no rooms available at any of the hotels.  The campers on the public beaches were by the most part very polite, quiet, and neat and tidy campers.  I have heard that the Easter Holiday scene at the beach is a lot more rowdy group of people.  We will have to wait and see what that is like next.

But rest assured, the other 48 weeks of the year, it is still a sleepy, laid back, friendly, little beach town.

Mentioning bicyclists, we met a nice young couple traveling from Alaska to Colombia.  Billy & Anna.  They have a website, bike2brewery.tumblr.com   I remained amazed at how many of these trans-continental bicyclists are out there on the road at any given time.  And most people still think that Mexico is such a dangerous place to travel.

    I am buying a 1974 Travco 270 rear bath with floor plan like yours. I hope to pick up this weekend. Needs lots of work but I am real excited. Yours seems to have a really nice paint job. Did you repaint it?

      The previous owner re-painted the stripe. It was avocado originally. The rest is just the natural original fiberglass, and it could use another wax job. It still will shine up nicely with a wax job.
