It’s Day 2 of Semana Santa. The beach in Rincón de Guayabitos was fairly busy this afternoon and the side streets are starting to fill up with buses. And while the entire town seems quieter than in years past, that will likely change over the next few days.
As usual, there were numerous vendors selling everything from fish and shrimp on a stick; wheelbarrows full of oysters and nuts; carts selling tacos, ceviche, fresh mangoes, pineapples and other tropical fruit; coconuts and coconut macaroons; and several ice cream carts playing that infamous jingle. Generations of families arrived with beach gear in tow, as well as water toys, kiddie pools, coolers full of snacks and drinks, chairs and umbrellas in every color. There were bands and dancing… and lots of sunburned youngsters. It is pretty obvious that people were enjoying their time at the beach!
