Does anyone have any update on Letys restaurant, opening and location? Thx

A previous poster mentioned Lety's new location will be at the intersection of Rio Colorado and Rio Mississippi in La Madera. No info on her opening to date but certainly a welcome addition to the lineup of great eateries in the area.

Thx D for the info. Letys is one of our go to spots when we’re in Z. Hopefully the parrot makes it to the new place. Nice to have the chatter in the background.

I hope the location works for her. For the casual tourist I think it will be hard to find. It looks easy enough to find, but few will wander past spontaneously.

We’ll take a cab first time then take the walk back to restaurant row on the water. I looked on the map at the possible new location and looks a couple blocks inland. How far is the walk from restaurant row on the water?

Lety's to Daniel's 15 minutes max.

Piece of cake walk then. So we’ll cab over from Las Brisas for our first time and walk back to cinco de Mayo area after. Thx for the info.

Lety's new location is definitely not going to draw any casual foot traffic. Although it is only 1 block of the main drag, P.del Palmar. It is going to be taxi drivers who will be delivering the customers. Most Taxi drivers will not know where she has moved to. It will take a lot of word of mouth from faithful customers to help her succeed in her new location. Once again she is "upstairs". I wish her well.

Being an ex cab driver myself from Reno and Lake Tahoe areas, cabbies will know the address and pass it on quickly to the rest. Lety, will rely on past customers and local businesses and hotels to get the word out on new location. We’ve been going to ixtapa and Z for 17 years and she has been a staple in the community and deserves to remain.

Might be nice if she put a sign on the street pole on del Palmar. Passing out business cards with a little map on the back to all the taxis stands in the area would be a big help too.

Getting her location updated in Google maps would be an easy and important way to help customers find her easier.

I don’t believe this address is in La Madera. I believe that l
La Madera ends at Calle el Palmar . I think it that location Is in Colonia Dario.

Thanks for your input. Why not complicate things by making this location a petty inconvenience to your sense of direction.

For Christ sake everyone knows the vicinity of La Madera and Lety's new location is close to La Madera as it could be without actually being there.

Yeah, I don't think that's a good attitude. Doug is correct. It's in a different colonia, Colonia Darío Galeana, and just because you don't know the difference or don't care doesn't mean it doesn't matter. Doug's just trying to be helpful, as I believe you are, too.

Why do you think this distinction matters? The cross streets are listed, that’s all anyone needs.

Knowing the colonia helps locals, if not residents familiar with their names, especially when the street name doesn't ring a bell. Darío is one of our older and more important colonias.

I thought the audience for this board was primarily tourists. Knowing the colonia would not help the average tourist. Knowing the cross street enabled me to see where it was on google maps, and when we are there in a couple of months I will easily be able to find it. In the past when we have been at Lety’s most of the patrons appeared to be tourists.

That's probably why she's having such a hard time staying open in the same place. Winning over locals can make all the difference.

Don't think there was ever a remarkable amount of locals patronizing Lety's. Her original clientele were driven by her brother's who are local fishing captains. Other fishing captain friends of her brother's also brought gringo customers. The fact that her food is fantastic helped too.

In each of her three La Noria locations she was driven out by greedy landlords who thought they needed more of her profit than they deserved. Similarly her sister Chendo had the same problem, although Olga now has a nice location down the street from the Inglesia in centro.

Last season most of Lety's business was from locals at her little taco stand she had in front of her restaurant. Her landlord threw her out this past June.

The tourist fishing business is dead here for the past 16 months thanks to Covid. In my opinion the reality that Covid is just another virus like all the rest of the big name flu's and people don't decide that it's just something more to adapt to, then Zihua as a norte americano destination is dead. Wearing masks and disinfecting my hands is just simply getting old. Any idiot who refuses to vaccinate deserves their fate. Maybe we should bring back Smallpox, Chickenpox, Measles and Polio........oh wait, a vaccine stopped those!

All the tourist driven shops, restaurants and fishing are dying on the vine. Local Mexican tourists don't spend like gringo's. Testament to that is watching Mexican tourists crowd the beaches all summer and rarely spend much money at the businesses on the playa's.

This post is based on my observations here in Zihua and the conversations I have had with friends and locals. As to covid that is just my opinion.

Great info DT. Speaking only as someone like myself that comes down twice a year for many years still think she deserves the supporti by locals and tourists. What an uplifting story it could before all to jump on the bandwagon to lift her up and make her a successful.

You are correct. Across the street from Paseo del Palmar is Colonia Darío Galeana.

I think we should all meet at Letys when she opens and have a few cold ones. Also nice to see Lety is getting this much attention..hopefully this exposure will get word of mouth out to locals, taxi drivers ,and others on this thread. Let’s give her a grand opening and make her feel appreciated and loved. What a great thing we could do for her.

So, will you be in charge of letting us know when? We hope so!

When we first moved here we were sent to her location for the best coconut shrimp ever. It was. I loved her stuffed fish too.

We’re coming down 9/9 to 9/23 and hope she is open by then. When we arrive I would let all know what evening we would go to Letys. Might be interesting to see whom on this thread could show up. One,two or more would be cool. Rob, does Lety look at your web page or has she ever posted?

Great news for Letys. She emailed me last night. She said she should be open October 8th tomorrow. She was pretty consumed with family emergencies and getting ready to open but looks like all is good. I’m waiting for her to tell me if the location is where we all have read on message board. What a great story if we all get the word out and make her a bigger success than before. I’ll be sending a message to TripAdvisor also.

Thought so. Now we’ll get the word out on TripAdvisor. We’ll be in town November 9th to the 23rd. I’ll pop a post out the night before we see her if anyone on this site wants to join in.
