We went up to the beach in Arroyo Seco which is not far from Emiliano Zapata. We combined the two last Sunday along with a stop at the Asi Azul restaurant across the street. I've passed by a number of times but never really noticed it but have heard of it. It's about the last place on the north side of town
A great old guy that seems to run it and he'll talk to you about ideas you may have; size, speed of growth, fertilizer, soil, etc. They also have a great garden soil for sale that looks to be mostly shredded coco shells.
I came back with a Carambola (star fruit), a Chico Zapote (Sapote) and an avocado that is supposed to do well on the coast. Also two Sisus vines that are like Ivy. Prices aren't much cheaper than I find in the Melaque area but the place is so large you have a much better selection. There were two pickup trucks filling up with like 40-50 of the same plants making me think they supply the local hotels.
