Tropical Musings from Paradise – June 2019 Edition

Posted by AdminGalvan on May 31, 2019

Its official, the year is half over already.  Have you made plans for your next Vacation in Paradise?

Yes, it is warm now however, summer in the Tropics simply cannot be beat.  The afternoon and evening storms that often bring thunder and lightning are a site to behold and will create memories which will last for a lifetime.  This is my favorite time of the year!

This month we would like to bring your attention to another small charming Pueblo located on the Coast of Riviera Nayarit that is called Los Ayala.

Los Ayala is located at the most Southern-most point of Jaltemba Bay and is located less than 5 minutes from Guayabitos. It is a very quiet and peaceful beach community with an amazingly beautiful beach.

Los Ayala on Mexico’s Nayarit Riviera: so special it’s magical 

Los Ayala remains one of Mexico’s best kept secrets. It’s a “real Mexican” town that has kept its quaint ways, a paradisiacal beach town where smiles are abundant and freely passed around. This quaint Mexican town is commonly referred to as a “small town with a big heart,” and a piece of paradise that one is compelled to share with others.

What is so special about Los Ayala? Clearly, it is the splendor of the palm fringed beach and the striking beauty of the lush jungle clad mountains as they struggle to embrace the sea. Is it the abundance and variety of the flora and fauna found in and around this tropical paradise?

Los Ayala is lush and green and adorned with soaring palm trees and an abundance of colossal banana trees…. Flocks of green Mexican parrots sing gloriously sweet as they soar overhead in the immense blue sky.

Is it the shy Mexican chachalacas that hang about in the uppermost portion of the trees where they are well hidden by the foliage and, on rare occasion, can be spotted strutting like peacocks down the street in front of my house? Is it the glorious black-throated magpie jays that are occasionally seen during the early morning hours; the grey hawks and frigate birds who seemingly own the sky or the gregarious brown pelicans that hang out at the beach?

Is it the endearing coatimundi that are frequently seen or the lone grey fox that is glimpsed on the rare occasion during the early morning hours? Could it be the common but equally captivating neighborhood goats, who manage to escape their confines every few days to roam the town streets? Granted, not everyone finds the goats charming, but they serve to provide great weed control, and on occasion a “Keep Fit” program for me when they start straying from the weeds and chomping on the leaves of one of my plants; obliging me to chase them down the street.

Could it be Los Ayala’s star filled sky dominated by a moon that is immense and surely larger than anywhere else in the universe? Or could it be the legend of the Ayala’s — a group alleged of bandits with the surname “Ayala” who lived here during the early part of nineteenth century? Local folklore says that there is a great treasure waiting to be discovered, hidden in a cave behind a golden door, somewhere in Los Ayala. Did I mention that Los Ayala beach was once referred to as the “Beach of the Mermaids?
