Idiots on the Playa Blanca

Yes, I tried that. It took a few minutes for find someone who could speak English. A few more minutes to communicate the Problem (ATV, Moto, on the beach). But the person to whom I was talking did not know where La Barra de Potosi or Playa Blanca or Los Achotes is located. I think, not sure, the person to whom I was speaking did not know the area very well.

All the more reason to (a) speak Spanish, and (b) speak clearly and concisely. The emergency number goes to the state's central command and control office. There are no local emergency operators operating banks of telephones like in the U.S. and Canadian TV shows or movies.

For future reference we don't say "ATVs" in Spanish. We call them "cuatrimotos". But all you really have to say are keywords like "vehículos motorizados en la playa" because THAT is what the law prohibits.

Thank you for calling the authorities to report the problem. It behooves folks at La Barra to get involved policing their own area and especially helping keep all the damn sleezy riders off the beach.
