    Long sandy beach

    December 1, 2019 in Mexico ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C

    We left El Tuito early this morning to get as far as possible before the heat. And as El Tuito is located in the mountains, the temperature was indeed very pleasant when we started. However, the closer we came to sea level again, the hotter it got. So we cycled the 100km pretty fast in order to jump in the ocean. We arrived in Punta Perula just after noon, so had half a day to relax at this chilled out beach town with its 13km sandy beach.Read more

    Crocodile Bar

    December 2, 2019 in Mexico ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    The route for today was relatively short: 68km. However, it was all rolling, plus heat and humidity. So we really had to fight, although we were on the road with the first daylight at 7am. Views were nice though, green hills everywhere, and only few traffic.
    When we arrived at our hotel in La Manzanilla, the breakfast buffet was still on. So when Mateo, who runs the bar/hotel said that we should finish it up, we didn't think twice. He also gave us an upgrade on the room, as he was enthusiastic about our trip. So we had a nice, bright and breezy room with sea view for the night. The rest of the day, we relaxed at the bar, observed the pelicans diving and the fisherman waiting for fish, had the best iced cappuccino ever, went swimming and watched the amazing sunset.
    We really enjoyed La Manzanilla, a cosy little beach town with a great and friendly community of Americans, Canadians and local Mexicans.

    Beaches in Paradise

    January 15, 2016 in Mexico ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    Holly was set on having lunch on a beach, and with the help of our offline maps found a short detour to a beach at Xametla in Perula Bay. We were all a little skeptical as the road was a bit rough and sandy but it turned out to be one of our nicest lunch breaks of the trip. We pulled out our snorkels and swam with some little fish and rays before enjoying lunch in the sun. We all wondered about staying the night, but felt the pressure to make some more distance since there was still half a day to ride. A couple more big climbs in the mid-day heat, and another dirt road short cut got us to Boca de Iguanas in time to buy pineapple, shrimp and coconuts on the beach and swim in the shallow bay. The only warning we were given was to avoid going too far up the fresh water stream that flowed through the beach to the ocean as that was crocodile habitat - a little unnerving given that we set up our tents within 100 m of the stream!Read more
