So Blue Agave is for Tequila (in the barrels below), and Green Agave is for Raicilla alcohol (in the big tank). This tequila is made right there in this place, and they seem not to use any chemicals. Also the person there mentioned that they only use Agave alcohol , as opposed to cheap tequilas that can use quite a bit of sugar cane alcohol. Still the bottle was only 350 pesos for an aged tequila.
Beach time. That's what we've been up to. And the beaches are real nice here. You take a table in the shade at the beach restaurant, and sip on cervezas y tequilas until you drop. The water is perfect temperature to hang out all day, weather at a constant 28ºC and perfect waves. We've been comparing it to going to Hawaii... and it's much more enjoyable down here. Much less touristy, especially right now for us, during the french kids' vacation, there's almost no white people (i know I keep saying it, but it makes a real difference to be away from the silly resort loving herds). And of course the kids love the place, they spend their whole time in the water. They could live here.. it's made for that. Time is much less stressful down here.
Tenacatita is a beach 30km north of Melaque mostly used by locals. The place is really clean and beautiful, on one end there are a few restaurant but the rest is not so touched, unlike most of the beaches in this area. But behind the restaurants, you're quickly reminded of the conditions people live in here. And of course they still have it better than the poor people in the city, but life is rough for most mexicans.
I've been cooking most nights at home in Cuastecomate, but we took one night out in Barra De Navidad, where the white folks fauna concentrate during the high season, to avoid seeing the mexicano misery. So we thought we'd do the same, and indulge good food in a good restaurant. Food nevertheless is cheap, but somewhat has a little bit of authenticity. And it was margarita happy hour, which produced some happy driving afterwards.
