Old fotos of Cihuatlan

Similar fotos are sometimes shown at the Cihuatlan cultural center at the main intersection but the last time I saw them they were covered with "Saran Wrap" which gave them an uneven glare making fotos impossible. Not sure where the majority are stored but there are a few more in the municiple building. Below is a web site with a few more.

Privatization of Jalisco beaches

Despite federal regulations against privatization of beaches in Mexico more and more are being closed for private resort developments. This is not only happening in Jalisco but all up and down the west coast.

Here is one persons response to a private property sign posted in El Tecuan

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
