Melaque

We were fortunate to be able to spend three days at the Pacific coast beach village of Melaque (pronounced May-la-kay).  Located approximately 4 hours southwest of  Guadalajara, this little village of 4000 inhabitants, residing just north of the resort city of Manzanillo, has a lovely 3-mile beach.  The temperatures were in the mid to upper 70’s and the water temp was just about perfect, very refreshing.  This was a very clean beach, with small hotels and restaurants dotting the landscape.  We were grateful to be able to find a room right on the beach.

Fortified with banana pancakes and eggs Mexicana, compliments of El Patio Restaurante, we headed to the beach for a day of sun and surf.  A few cervezas on the beach rounded out the day beautifully!

At the northern end of the Melaque beach lies the sleepy little fishing village of Barra de Navidad, which we visited on our way out of town.  A very colorful mural was being created by a local artist as we passed by.

We are excited about the prospects of returning to this area in May for a yoga retreat.
