Last Night at Mahahual



We took a couple of bike rides to the little town and cruise ship docks. Did a little grocery shopping also. Two big ships were in port today but not many people find their way to this end of the beach near the lighthouse. So even though the two ships had 4000 passengers all we saw here was about 20 people. The campground is nice quiet place with nice bathrooms and showers and only cost 100 pesos per night.

When the construction of all the little water bed rooms are done maybe things will be a little quieter in camp. The owner says she is going to rent the little rooms for $25/night.

The day was sunny but cool, we took a bike ride down the bumpy beach road for about 6 miles, lots of little houses, hotels and dive shops are along the way.



Peggy found a skinny friend in one of the stores. It was amazing to see all the stores and trinket stands come to life when the boat people are in town. From the cruise schedule it looks like the locals only have to work 3 or 4 days a week. Yesterday hardly a soul was around. This morning the place was jumping, with everyone getting ready to sell their wares.

So we will pull out early Wednesday morning and head to Xpu-Ha. We need to fill up with LPG so we have enough for the rest of the winter. We may stop at a Super Che or Soriana to pick up some more food.

See Map 7

We expect to be there by early afternoon since it is only about 150 mi of 4 lane divided highway.


  1. wow the locals sure do scramble for the tourists don't they...love the pic of you in shorts..we're in winter duds here...take care drive safe to your next destination...

  2. I like Mom's friend. How does she stay so thin? John says she reminds him of Jack from the Nightmare before Christmas.
