    Tierbeobachtung

    March 23, 2021 in Mexico ⋅ ☀️ 24 °C

    Ein Tümpel in der Nähe von San Blas beherbergt Ungeahntes.
    🐊 Krokodile haben anscheinend eine wichtige Funktion im Ökosystem. Durch ihre Bewegungen im Wasser reinigen sie die Wasserflüsse. Ich hoffe, sie bewegen sich hier fleissig!Read more

    Es sieht aus, als würde es Euch anlachen... gab es da auch eine „Krokodildusche“? LG Petra

    🤣Du bist eine Optimistin! Ich dachte eher, hoffentlich hat es schon gefrühstückt, diesen Zähnen möchte ich nicht zu Nahe kommen.

    Islas Marietas

    November 29, 2019 in Mexico ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    As the music in the hostel didn't stop before 3am, we decided to have a late start and leave after breakfast (which they served from 8:30am). Usually, we try to be on the road at 7am in order to avoid most the midday heat.
    From Sayulita, we took a small road with less traffic to Punta Mita. Irene had recommended to go to Islas Marietas, so we checked out the offers. As we got a good deal and people seemed to be very knowledgable, we went on a boat trip to the islands. Definitely a good decision! The islands were formed by volcanic activity and are under government protection, so there's many species of seabirds as well as abundant marine life. On the way there, we saw a humpback whale and some dolphines. We observed the birds, among them some blue (and yellow) footed boobies, got wet from the water of the blowhole, checked out some caves and the stone bridge, snorkelled to sea the tropical fish and discovered a hidden beach.
    As the tour took longer than expected (Mexican times...), we booked an AirBnB some 30km away to be able to make ot before dark. When we arrived at the address, noone was there. We called the owner and he told us that it's actually not available at the moment because the light is not working and he has been waiting for someone to fix it for some time (Mexican time again...). We were both a little frustrated and hungry, as it was getting dark already and there weren't many options for accommodation. However, Google helped us this time and led us to a cosy hostal with friendly people and a fresh fruit and vegetable store next door 😊

    Too many tourists

    November 28, 2019 in Mexico ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    Some days are not as good as others... We left our campspot pretty tired, as we didn't sleep well. Plus, our tent was totally wet due to the humidity. Anyways, the first 50km of today's ride were very scenic: a bit rolling through green rainforest, beautiful views of the coast and not much traffic on the road.
    However, this changed once we turned on the 200 towards Puerto Vallarta. Heavy traffic, speeding cars and buses cutting us pretty closely and construction work - no fun riding at all!
    We stopped in La Penita for our lunch stop and to dry our tent. We tried to get Internet to research hotels nearby, but neither our local SIM nor the restaurants in town had working wifi. So we continued to San Francisco, a surfer town. We were overwhelmed by the amount of tourists here and couldn't find a decent hotel, so went on to Sayulita. It's actually very popular among surfers and backpackers, so we faced similar issues and ended up in a hostel. We were the only ones cooking dinner while the others made extensive use of the happy hour. Feeling pretty old lieing in bed while they are playing YMCA and Macarena downstairs 😥

    In Mexiko scheint ja jeder Ort seinen Namen in großen, bunten Lettern zu haben. Gut für die Amis, damit sie wissen wo sie sind. 😉

    Das stimmt. Nach eurer Reise wart ihr dann in so vielen Städten, da hilft es den Überblick zu behalten. 😅

    Pedaling with the crocodiles

    November 27, 2019 in Mexico ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Today's ride passed by some small villages and more agricultural land. As we are coming closer to the sea again, we saw huge fish hatcheries as well.
    We had an extended lunch stop in San Blas. Herbert had to fix his tyre (again), but we also went for a swim in the Pacific, had a look around in the centre and did some fresh fruit and banana bread shopping.
    In the afternoon, we continued a little further and passed a lagune. When we stopped to do bird watching, a crocodile was sunbathing right in front of us (luckily, there was a fence). When looking across the lagune, we saw more crocodiles, one even opening his mouth - would have been a great shot if we had taken out the camera in time).
    After a few nights indoors, we decided to camp again, as we saw a nice looking camping ranch. The night didn't turn out to be too good: first, we were eaten up by mosquitoes during dinner. When hiding in the tent, we were immediately soaked in sweat due to the heat and humidity. Plus, the animals on the ranch (mainly the dogs and the rooster) obviously heard of any quiet times during sleeping hours 😏 back to hotels I guess...

    Mainland of Mexico

    November 26, 2019 in Mexico ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

    Today was quite a tough day, 149 km, to a town called Santiago Ixcuintla. We want to get back to the coast as soon as possible, that's why we need to do a couple of long days on the inland roads. The road today was pretty diverse though, which we enjoyed. We passed a lagune and watched the birds and the fisherman. We also saw more agriculture, mountains and green trees which almost made us feel as if we'd go through a rainforest.
    Cycling on the mainland of Mexico actually feels like being in a different country again. Compared to Baja California, it's way more humid. This means that we are soaked in sweat as soon as we move. We also haven't camped so far as there's not really good spots in the densed trees. Plus, there's way to many people which makes it less safe. The hotels are alright though: they are cheap, we can take our bikes into the room, we have a shower and can wash our cloths - and sometimes even cook like today.

    Sayulita

    November 11, 2021 in Mexico ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    Nice place. Too much parties. I’m done with it. No more parties please.

    Plenty of beach time. Plenty of parties. Too many Canadians and Americans in this place. The locals don’t even response in Spanish they go straight for English.

    A cute thing: Campamento Tortuguero, a voluntary community project. The goal is to relocate the Olive Ridley Sea Turtle nests the mothers lay all over the beaches into the Nursery to protect them from poaching. The suprise was in the sunset releasing of the hatchlings when many families bring children to help. Educating that protecting the beach helps the little babies get a chance at life has become an important goal.

    Playa Las Islitas

    October 30, 2021 in Mexico ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    Las Islitas se localiza a solo diez minutos de la comunidad de San Blas. Estamos ante una de las zonas costeras más bellas de la región, un refugio para el descanso y la práctica de amenos deportes náuticos.

    Playa Las Islitas tiene arena tersa y grisácea, propicia para los baños de sol. Esta playa nayarita tiene una longitud de dos kilómetros y una anchura de treinta metros.

    Tantas y tan buenas zonas costeras se ubican en esa parte del territorio nacional que hay alternativas para todas las preferencias turísticas: desde playas solitarias excelentes para el romance y la intimidad hasta zonas costeras con numerosos hoteles de exclusiva categoría.

    Vale la pena conocer a fondo las características principales de las playas de la Riviera Nayarit para elegir las mejores para visitar.

    La Tovara

    October 30, 2021 in Mexico ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    La Tovara es un manantial ubicado en el municipio de San Blas Nayarit en el estado de Nayarit (México), que da origen a un estanque natural de agua dulce en medio de un estero en la base de una serranía. El área es muy extensa y está llena de canales naturales entre la jungla que desembocan a la bahía de Matanchén en el océano Pacífico. La vegetación es frondosa y llena de plantas tropicales entre las que destacan los helechos gigantes y los manglares, y una fauna diversa que incluye cocodrilos, tortugas, jaguares, ocelotes, armadillos, y una gran variedad de aves y peces.

    Se puede visitar el lugar por lancha en un viaje a través de dichos canales embarcándose ya sea en un sitio llamado "La Aguada" aledaño al puerto de San Blas (viaje largo) o en el embarcadero turístico de La Tovara (viaje corto). Una vez en los canales se puede ir, siempre por agua, a un cocodrilario cercano y al set donde se filmó la película "Cabeza de Vaca". La Tovara se encuentra en tierras denominadas de humedales, importante para la biodiversidad de México especialmente en aves acuáticas (garza blanca, garza rosada "pico de espátula", garza canela pico de bote", garza tigre, flamingos, Luisvienteveos, entre otros). Este sitio ha sido reconocido como un sitio RAMSAR de México, por lo que es un buen lugar para iniciarse en la observación de animales.

    La Tovara tiene un pequeño restaurante que ofrece los platillos típicos de la gastronomía local que incluye el pescado zarandeado y tatemado, y que da también el servicio de vestidores y servicios sanitarios al público que acostumbra ir a nadar a este lugar.
