Powerful Waves
We took a taxi to La Bocana on a tip from one of the waiters at our local beach. Great action! Our taxi driver put the pedal to the medal, and it was like a roller coaster for me in the back seat, for about 10 miles. A huge expanse of beach and killer waves. Too big for us.

We walked up the beach (eastward) to where Rio Copilita dumped into the ocean. While swimming across it, we noticed that the fresh water doesn't float a person as well as saltwater. It was a near miss, almost dumped my pack into the river.

La Bocana is a small place, with a hotel that had 2 rooms. One is $50/night, and the other with kitchen is $80/night (this one was booked). We had some Mexcal and beer on the terrace. Two retired French couples were next to us, so that was a good time to listen to French expressions.

The weather was the same as it is every day, about 92 for a high and 70 for the low.
