La Penita (Day 4)

We rode over to Rincon de Guayabitos today. It is pretty easy and you do not have to ride on the highway. It neighbours La Penita and is divided by a small river/waterway. They, in recent years, built a foot/bike bridge over it. Always nice to be out on the bikes exploring. Plus, it is surprisingly cooler riding with that bit of wind on you.

Saddle up.........


Looking across at Rincon de Guayabitos

Doug coming down on the Rincon de Guayabitos side....
 
Rincon is a very touristy town, even more so than La Penita. It is a more polished town for sure, lots (mostly) pretty good paved streets. On the La Penita side of this bridge, we came off a very old cobblestoned dirt street, onto a paving stone road that went for several kilometers. 

Still, there were odd little walking malls like this. Some were nice but
some were a bit run down and we were surprized by this because there
seems to be tons of tourist dollars spent here.....

The beach was pretty busy. Food stalls galore and vendors a'plenty

Fish on a stick.....
 

 

The pelicans are never very far from the food.
See this cheeky guy trying to steal the garbage bag??

This became the classic stand-off between the dog and the lone pelican.
The dog would dart a bit at him but the pelican couldn't have cared less....

The Over-seer


Every street we rode on was this nicely paved.

Then out pops a beautiful little fruit garden on a corner.
So pretty.....


So, cuidado means "danger". Nothing like marking such with
a Styrofoam cup dangling from a few pieces of plastic stripping.

Missing this huge warning sign would likely result in a broken leg, or
whatever connected with the concrete first. About 2 feet deep.....
But no excuses as it was written in English on the other side of the cup!!!


Heading back towards La Penita....


The perfect sunset drink......


With a perfect sunset!
 
Thus ends the day here. I think we rode about 6 kms (at least). It was very enjoyable but I do not think I would like to stay in Rincon de Guayabitos. Nice enough to visit but too "touristy" for me, too busy. RV parks seem to be either concrete with big rigs or pretty poor shape. Like I say, nice enough......reminded me of somewhere like Osoyoos or Kelowna. Still it was okay for the day to see it. and a pleasant ride there and back.
 
Peace everyone.....
 
Thought for the day:  Enjoy life now. This is not a rehearsal....

  1. We liked the beach at Rincon de Guayabitos. Especially on the weekends when the Mexican families came out to play.

    1. We love, love, love the Mexican families out enjoying their beach, I just enjoy a more tranquil setting, no matter where we are.

  2. Rincon is getting busier and busier and yes the RV parks are really crowded. Nice to visit but not to stay. I always love the multitude of umbrella colors on the beach.

    Love that parrot mural and great sunset shots.
