A People Day at Tenacatita, Jalisco Mexico

A people day at Tenacatita

Friday June 24th
Denis, my neighbor, had not been to Tenacatita or La Manzanilla and it had been a month for me. Surprisingly busy for a summer Friday with a few bus loads of weekend tourists. Humidity was up as well as the waves. I walked up on the bluff between the main beach and the snorkeling beach (fotos) and noticed huge waves breaking on the beach just north of us. We took a palm grove road on the way out and found an empty and exciting beach - dangerous waves and currents.

Mexicans sure know how to play in the surf

Great photos of our favorite Mexico beach. It's been 2 years since I was last there, there appears to be growing numbers of buildings and restaurants. I watched the beautiful brick wall that supports the bluff, (3rd photo)north of Tenacatita Bay being built, brick by brick, bucket by bucket of mortar raised by hand. It appears to still be under construction. Do you know if it is going to be a building of sorts?

I don't seem to have newer fotos but the place looks to be a restaurant of sorts. There's a pool out on the patio. All is still very unfinished

i was there about two years ago and talked to the two men working there. they said it was a house for a wealthy chicano from the u.s. they said that they didnt have blueprints but that he comes in every so often to tell them what he wants done. they were pouring bed supports while i was inside.

The construction of the house finished in April 2011 and I'm pretty much settled in. As of March 2014 I'm in preparation for rain mode for this coming summer. That includes sealing and painting things and dealing with drainage issues from last year.
