Rob’s Ramblings: Semana Santa 2013 Update

Talking to a few locals over the past few days, the overall opinion is that the crowds are the heaviest in anywhere from 3-10 years. What a wonderful holiday to be at the beach with a few thousand of your best friends. The mid and south end of Rincón de Guayabitos had a great combination of car alarms, loud speaker trucks for GAZ and mariscos, as well as dueling mariachi bands. Sorry, ear plugs won’t cut it.

The crowds in the water and full accommodation in town bring one phrase to mind: coliform count.

Buses lined up along the lateral from Guayabitos to the Los Ayala road.

La Peñita beach still had a fair amount of beach space available. Las Brisas Restaurant is making use of the work stoppage to set up beach-side tables.

In the distance, La Colonia beach looks fairly quiet.
