So we booked another hotel room.
The same one we had found a couple of weeks ago on Priceline wasn't available. But I found one on booking.com a twenty minute walk from the central plaza. And it's only 260 pesos ($22.10) for the night! Sounds too good to be true, but their website makes it look not bad...
I guess we'll find out because we booked it. It's only for one night, so even if it's less than stellar, we'll survive!
And, it's located right on the subway line we need the next morning to get to the bus station to Toluca.
Yesterday, we invited our friends to the beach for lunch. Mary had the day off (but she's working this Sunday) and Alfredo was able to leave work at noon, but had to be back for 4:00pm.
It didn't take Ruth long to get in the water.
She was having fun with Nataly.
And they were soon joined by Mary and Gael.

We ordered a platter for lunch. It's called Mariscada...a bunch of different seafood...fish fillet, octopus, squid, crab, shrimp, and shellfish. Enough for the six of us, and salad and a couple of plates of rice. With drinks and tip, the bill was 600 pesos ($51.00). A little pricey, but the beach restaurants in Puerto usually are.

There were no gringos at this beach. No idea why, but the gringos tend to stay on Playa Zicatela, the surfing beach. Something else I noticed. Because there are no gringos, there is hardly anybody lying on the beach. The Mexicans go to the beach and sit in the shade at the beachside restaurants. And they spend a lot of time in the water. Hours, just sitting in the water.

Busy day in the water.
