Do not miss the bags of unadulterated sea salt.

Playa LArga
A deserted beach closer to our Zihua home is Playa Larga. Currently, you have to take a taxi all the way around the barn to get there but a road is being carved through the mountain on the other side of La Ropa .  Bonnie took Karen and I over there to her favorite restaurant called Four Brothers.  We had a very unusual dish of Camerones de Coco that included a delicious baked potato. Sometimes that gringo food really hits the sentimental spot!
