And they're so tiny that you won't even see it coming.
This whole area (San Blas and the Matanchen Bay) is targeted for tourist expansion, and with a new toll highway being completed between Tepic and the bay itself, it's well on it's way to attracting beach goers by the hundreds. That should make the noseeums very happy!
It's too bad about the bugs. The beach and bay are really pretty and the water is shallow for 100 yards and easy to swim in.
The beach sand is so hard that you can easily drive on it. This ice cream guy drives up and down the beach all day long on weekends.
Umm. Don't get too close to the water though! This dummy drove right through where there's a river emptying into the bay. Expect it to be a little soft in those area! Returning from our walk, a tow truck had just finished pulling him out.
You can walk for miles!
We started on the far side across the bay!
This is Playa las Islitas. (Small Islands Beach).
But, the bugs are horrible. We can't figure out why anybody would come here. Or buy property here. The beachside restaurants have a few people at them on weekends. We stopped for a cold drink and they actually supplied us with bug repellent!
Heading further north this morning. No idea where we're stopping for the night.
