Staying in Ajijic was cold through Christmas and the early part of January. It rained for a few days around Christmas causing us to decide to take a holiday from our holiday. We drove down to Melaque, on the way we had an opportunity to take photos of the the Colima volcano. The first two are on the way down. The other is on the return trip. It is the only time I witnessed a volcano spewing steam. It only lasted a few minutes.
Melaque has at least two different faces. One is the beaches, which stretch for miles, all the way to Barra de Navidad. There are many beach restaurants that serve very good food. There are many peddlers trying to make a living selling wares. Some are carried on their heads. Then there is the other side, just one block of the beach is a street that is vastly different.
The second face of Melaque, the market side. The kaleidoscope of colors and friendly people make this so Mexican. We found little restaurants here that were all as good as the beach but lacked the view.
The street entering the shop area, note the interesting inlays in the concrete.
Melaque has fairly good roads.
Various shops and various items.
The streets have a banquette of colors.
Clothes hang right in the street.
So many choices.
The centro park.
An intersting tree.
I am not certain whether the central park is in Melaque or San Patricio.
