I’ve returned from Playa Ventura, which has been our beach vacation of choice since I found the place back in 2005 when Paola, myself and two travelling friends did a big tour of Oaxaca and Guerrero states. I’m not a huge fan of big resorts and prefer tiny little villages that offer non of the creature comforts, little in the way of organized nightlife, and considerably less in the way of litter, pollution and noise. They offer much more in the way of wildlife and natural delights. Turtles come ashore here more frequently than in Acapulco Bay, a couple of hours down the road.
The waves are also a lot bigger and more fun here, although it has to be said swimming is a little riskier. Although, when red flags are flying, there is always the option of a short drive to Chautengo lagoon. The video is short, but gives a brief glimpse into life at Playa Ventura. Photos will come in good time. If you fancy a trip there yourself, you can locate the nearby town of Copala, from which the road to Playa Ventura starts, courtesy of Google Maps by clicking here. The reggae music accompanying my vid, which looks better in HD if you have a decent broadband connection, came courtesy of Screaming ‘Tubes.
