Mazunte.

Mazunte.

Just spend a couple of days in the small beach town Mazunte. Very pleasant place to relax after a few days of cycling through southern Mexico.

I was just about to call Mazunte a two course town. And it probably has two horses. But it also has about a million turtles breeding there every year, so turtle town might be a more appropriate nickname for Mazunte. The turtles are not nesting when I am in town though. But that is ok with me. I was mainly there to relax after a long bicycle ride. And Mazunte is just perfect for that.

It’s a really small town, but just big enough to have a church and a football field. So the two most important things in Mexican social life is covered in Mazunte.

The beach there is very nice and it’s flanked by a few little restaurants and bars. That is my kinda beach. I do not go to the beach to tan, but to walk along the seashore until I am thirsty for a beer.

Mazunte do have a couple of interesting things to visit, despite it’s small size. The turtle reserve is one thing and the other is a project set up by Anita Roddick who founded Body Shop. The locals produce natural cosmetics that are sold in Body Shop. And they have an local outlet in town as well.

The two days I spend in Mazunte was mainly spand on walking along the beach and a little up behind the village. There had been some heavy rains about 3 weeks before I got there. There were still some large natural pools after that rain and that is possible also why there were so many insects around. The amount of flies in Mazunte was quite annoying. That was the only negative side of the place really. But I had a very nice tie there and will happily return again.

Nice local restaurant.
