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.
