After an uneventful flight from Canada, we finally arrived at the Manzanillo airport. Our taxi to Melaque which is approximately 30 minutes travel cost 420 pesos which is approximately 40.00 cdn. Our landlord was there to warmly greet us upon our arrival at the bungalow. It felt good to be back.
Once we settled in, we decided to go to Concha del Mar, a beachside restaurant for dinner. We ordered our first margaritas of the trip and then had our favourite dish of 12 breaded prawns, choice of rice, beans or fries and some vegetables. The total cost per person was 130 pesos, approximately 12.00 cdn.
The moon was a brilliant reddish orange colour, reminding us of the colour of the lunar eclipse the previous evening. We were fortunate that we were able to see it so clearly. What an evening it was, to see the colourful moon, hear the waves lapping up on the shore, watch some fireworks and people watch.
There were many happy sighs that evening.
