A new day, full of possibilities!
We took a small bus to Xcalak, a village south of Mahahual.
The road was newly paved for some of the 45 minute ride.
The bus stop was nondescript, and beautiful.
Some of the sights around the village:
Only one place in town was open for breakfast.
Silvia’s is a cute place, with beach decor and a working well inside.
No prices on the menu – only eggs and meat advertised.
But the cook made me (a pescatarian) quesadillas and fries.
Next, a long, hot walk to a beach bar that sells craft brew.
No stores here – people put up signs for what they need to buy.
Eventually, a mirage in the desert for my husband:
And then, finally, the beach bar at Costa de Cocos!
A cold, craft brew – not easy to find in this part of the world.
Next on tap – a porter! Just look at that smile!
I enjoyed cold soda and the view.
The coconut shrimp is highly recommended, and we agree.
We hitched a ride back (thank heavens!) and cooled off on the dock.
Everyone was friendly, even the military.
Gracias por un buen dia, Xcalak!
