A cool article with fotos and a video. It's in Spanish but translates pretty well with Google.

Then what are we going? -a red truck loaded with surfboards, kiteboards, tents and photographic equipment should not leave much doubt, but either way was right answer. Mau is one of the national champions of kiteboarding, and also very good surfer. As we said we were headed to Arroyo Seco we were above the car, but never explained anything.

We just buy the housing and we are trying to photograph the sea strength from within, what we seek is a wave. It is not what is, but what can have- replied explaining the plan, or what we would do in the absence of this. A tide was coming and could bring big waves with her. Arroyo Seco is a secret gem of the surfer community of Jalisco and was a good place to try to find her.

According to Alfonso Espinoza Estrada, delegate for the Secretary of Tourism for the State of Jalisco, "The fist step for the new airport will be to receive the permission from the Civil Aviation department to operate the airport. In the beginning we are looking for private airplanes to land for vacation travel because we already have various exclusive hotels in the area. Included in the Costalegre zone are Polo Tournaments in November and March. In order to participate in events like this you need to be able to bring in world class horses, have training spaces for them, and areas for the horses to rest so they can compete. This type of activity requires a large investment and for this we are working towards having the new airport open before this administration leaves office."

The governor has earmarked $21,000,000 USD to start the project of the new airport, highway expansion, utility services and infrastructure.

The Costalegre

I have long thought that Costalegre was an agreed upon catch word for the Costa Alegre. Now I'm finding there is another long time standard, Coastecomates. This is about that area as well.

The stretch of coastline located between Costa Majahuas and Cihuatlán is the Costalegre or “happy coast.” Others describe the Costalegre as the area between Puerto Vallarta and Manzanillo. Either way it is still "the happy coast". Pacific Coast of Mexico
