At Faro de Bucerias, we found another gorgeous beach, and took a walk to take a few photos. The waves were quite large, and the surf was unpredictable, so it seemed like a dangerous place to swim, but the views were breathtaking. It was practically deserted, except for a single restaurant and a few people camping in tents on the beach.
There are no hotels at the beach, and no hotels down the road in the small town of Colola, either. So we would have to get a hotel in Maruata, the next town after Colola, which is about a 30 minute drive. Since it is not advisable to drive in Michoacan at night, we had to think about whether we wanted to come back. We decided to take a walk on the beach to see what it looked like, and we could actually see the holes that some turtles had dug to lay their eggs. That was it! We knew we had to come back at night.
When we arrived back at the turtle camp, we were told we would have to have a guide take us to the beach, and they put us in the hands of Gabino for a cost of 70 pesos for the two of us (a little over $5.00). Here I am with Gabino.
Best wishes to you all and Buenas Noches,
