Vamos a la playa turisticaDecember 25, 2019 in Mexico ⋅ ☀️ 30 °C
As we spent Christmas Eve in the mountains, we wanted to be at the coast on Christmas Day. The route was one of the best we've cycled so far. We passed tiny mountain villages, enjoyed stunning views and curvy downhills. So we stopped quite often to take photos. We also had some steep climbs in between, so in the end, it took us longer than expected to get to the coast. Instead of going to a smaller village further along the coast, we decided to stay in Huatulco. Kind of a bad choice, as it's full of tourists at this time of the year and available hotel rooms are scarce and totally overpriced. It took us quite long to find an adequate room. Also, when we checked out the beach, we didn't feel like swimming anymore because of the crowds. So we just bought some food, cooked dinner and called it a night.
At our hotel, we met Ivan, a Brazilian cyclists who had cycled from Canada to Mexico so far. He gave us some advice about biking in Central America which will for sure be quite useful in the future.Read more
