Surfing Calechosa

Also known as Ranchito Beach, Costalegre Jalisco

Surf was large here in Melaque and I thought I'd take a chance on going to Ranchito beach to see what was up and check out the new development called Calechosa Bay.  The road has been improved a bit and three buildings on the property have been started but have a long way to go.  Roy's house is looking good beyond the development and I remember when he was just living in a trailer waiting for the Ejido to let him build.

The surf was pretty good but the wind was starting to come up from offshore around noon.  Probably better in the mornings.  This is the first time I've seen any surfers there.  The beach is rocky and difficult to exit and enter.  That's why the one guy shown is entering off the rocks on the point.   Took him quite awhile to decide when to jump.

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
