Playa La Ticla - Surfing the Michoacan Coast

We Just got back from an 8 day trip down the coast of Michoacan to Playa Azul and up to the Patzcuaro area. I'll put the La Ticla and Playa Azul sections here since I don't really have a blog for coastal Michoacan.

La Ticla is off highway 200 between San Juan de Alima and El Faro (the light-house). It has a very interesting new road in from the highway not suggested for large motor homes or 5th wheels. The road is narrow and has a few very tight turns. The beach was full of camping surfers in mid-January so there would be safety in numbers against thieves and trouble makers. Not a real pretty beach but regularly good for surfing.

Life on the beach

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.
