Alberto's Beach Bar Restaurant
casual beach side restaurant. Seafood is the feature here: Lobster, crab, fish tacos, etc. Enjoy a full meal or just snacks and drinks as you enjoy the ocean view.

Costa Brava:
open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Menu choices include seafood, chicken and beef. My husband loves, among other things, the sopa de lima (soup).

Fat Tuesdays:

Drinks are the highlight here, especially the frozen ones. Get 'em by the gallon! Snacks are also served to go along with their specialty frozen drinks. Take a seat or a stool and enjoy a refreshing drink and watch the people as they stroll by on the plaza.

Panaderia La Cozumeleña:
This is a bakery and cafe. We often stop at the bakery, but we haven't tried their restaurant. It seems busy all the time with many local diners, so it must be good and reasonably priced.


The climate in Mexico can vary depending on the location.

•Along the coasts, it is mainly hot and humid, and during the summer, it is unbearably hot. However, in the inner areas where the elevation is higher, the climate is dryer and more temperate.

•During the winter times, some cities, such as Mexico City can experience freezing temperatures.

Local tradition

The Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, which is celebrated on Dec. 12, is a major Mexican holiday celebrating of the appearance of the Virgin Mary to an Indian man in the first years of Spanish rule. She is the patron saint of the country.

The Day of the Dead, which is actually celebrated over two days (Nov. 1 and 2) combines Catholic and indigenous rituals to honor the deceased and is a national holiday.

Carnival is also celebrated in many communities throughout Mexico to mark the period before Lent.
