  • Melaque taco stand

Melaque taco standThat's right we eat tacos for breakfast, and I'm not talking about egg and cheese in flour tortilla type of tacos.  Oh no, I'm talking about the real deal; asada (grilled beef), pollo (chicken), adobada (spicy pork), and chorizo, lengua (tongue), cabeza (head), and labio (lips).  We pile on the beans and salsas and enjoy our culinary delights at street side taco stands.  Pedro's has always been our favorite it's located just off the main jardin, this family-run taco stand offers up generous tacos and friendly service. 

Summertime in Melaque, Mexico and that means everyone and everything is hot, hot, hot! It also means the rains have arrived and turned the hillsides lush, tropical, and green. Temperatures my rise but not to worry, remember El Palmar Beach & Tennis Resort is across the street from the beautiful Melaque beach so when it's hot we do what locals do, have an ice cold coco, or Margarita, and take dip in the ocean.

  • Ceviche

CevicheWho would guess that a tiny Mexican town a few miles from the Costalegra is where you'll find the area's best ceviche? Sure the palapa beach restaurants in Melaque serve up great ceviche but the best in the area is found between Melaque and the Manzanillo airport in a little town called Cihuatlan.  They go through almost a half a ton of ceviche each week! Here is a Mexico Vacation video of our last trip to this hidden treasure.   


  • Melaque bird watching

Melaque bird watchingMany people pick vacation destinations to complement their hobbies or passions. The Melaque, Barra de Navidad area of Mexico is a BIRD WATCHER`S PARADISE! We have the oceaBird watching Melaquen, two major lagoons, several minor ones, a nearby lake created by a dam, and the water spots in the jungles of the mountains.

  • Solar powered Melaque hotel

El Palmar Beach & Tennis Resort goes green! And why not, the Mexican sunshine in Melaque is a powerful and reliable commodity so I thought I'd try my hand at installing some solar panels on the roof. Guests in our Melaque hotel appreciate a nice hot shower in the morning before heading off for the day, but because of concrete construction and non-insulated pipes the water loses several degrees from the roof to shower, keeping it hot requires a lot of energy. So solar seemed like a the perfect solution to augment our traditional heating system.
