was once mainly used to ship coffee, but now it attracts international
surfers, backpackers and many Mexican families and is quite touristy.
And it is HOT here!
We opted for the big, coach-style bus (ADO) which took 11 hours (overnight) …
... saw colors in the water and just went for it. That night we got our laundry back when we walked back into the hotel, luckily I'm not too worried about my cheap white t shirts because they came back a light blue/grey color from obviously being washed in hot water with the other black clothing, we had a laugh about it and was glad it was nothing we really liked, like bobbies newest white top with a tiger face on it she brought.
