Mexico Travel Journal Winter 2017 p4

Lo de Marcos is a small beach community in the state of Nayarit.  Most residents are either farmers, fishermen, merchants, or work in the hospitality sectors, (food/lodging).  The town swells each fall when more than one thousand expats mostly from Canada arrive to spend October-March.  Population falls to under one thousand souls after the Canadians return home to qualify for their annual health care, and most others part time residents escape the torrid rainy season.

Lo de Marcos is a dusty town with a central plaza, a Catholic church, and pristine beach with dramatic waves.  Off the beaten track for tourists, it is quiet and friendly.  Like the rest of Mexico, its electrical wiring is rather chaotic.

I have been a lifelong rider and horse lover. I got my first "horse" at a yard sale; it was a pony actually. It was sometime in the early 60's. I was in 3rd or 4th grade. The pony was perhaps $10. My sister, brother, and I pooled our money and led him home. At the time my parents were traveling, and my Uncle Bill promptly made us return it. (stay tuned...more to come...)

  1. I’m enjoying learning about this part of Mexico. I got to see Cheri’s entire travel journal for her tip. She does a fantastic job with architectural drawings! Very intimate.
