There's a new live webcam up and running for Playa La Madera, though I believe it may still be in its experimental stages. Check it out on my webpage linked below.

That's a great cam! Hearing the waves roll in is a big bonus.

That's a great webcam. I hope nobody messes with it because I can't think of anything that would make it better.

Oh my gosh, I LOVE the webcam! Now I can go to my happy place in more than just my mind. Even hear the waves and the birds. The only problem is, I can hardly tear myself away. Thanks so much Rob for posting this.

Aaah, brings back pleasant memories of being lulled to sleep every night by the susurration of the surf during the years we spent at Loma Bonita, which can clearly be seen just above the white structure closest to the water, past the main beach. Unfortunately, that "new" structure hasn't been an improvement, either esthetically or unless one enjoys being blasted by the usual unholy mix of techno/rapcrap of what passes for music these days. When the "music" drowns out the surf, it's time to shout "¡Basta!"

Rob!
Thank you so much for the Madera live web cam!! What a glorious treat. Transportation back to Zihua! I love it. There are few techno things about the 21st century that I like but this is very cool.
Thanks again.

I’m here to echo what everyone else said, especially Maggie!
I confess I spent far too long glued to my screen...just made my day. We will return. ‘Once the dust of Mexico has settled on your shoulders, you will alway return’ Carl Franz, if I’m not mistaken.

I kind of doubt it was Carl Franz.

I have:
"He upon whose heart the dust of Mexico has lain, will find no peace in any other land."
- Malcom Lowry, Under the Volcano

But today I found this, from "Your Mexican Holiday", by Anita Brenner:
"Once the dust of Mexico has settled on your heart, you have no rest in any other land. So goes the proverb."

So, whether you get the dust on your shoulders or on your heart, the saying probably comes from an old proverb. Either way, I think I understand the sentiment, or more accurately, have felt it.

Hi, HolyMole, and yes, all kinds Mexican fairy dust. I’m pretty sure it was inside the frontispiece of my old and battered 1970 copy of a people’s giude to Mexico, so maybe he was using the quote...as you say, we can all agree on the sentiment, we all keep coming back!

¡Por Fin!
That is just too damn sweet, very reminiscent of the view from Hotel Irma, although it looks to be from somewhere a bit farther up the beach towards town.
Thanks for posting this Rob, and thanks to whoever has decided to provide this much needed dose of paradise for those of us so far away. It's been safely bookmarked and added to my bookmarks toolbar for ready access. I hope it is on 24/7, so we can see the lights, too!

It is just me or is the new webcam not working? I was sure enjoying it, but the past few days it says video not available.

Apparently the code for the feed changed. Not sure why. I've updated the link and it's working fine now. Thanks for letting me know.

Over the last few days, the webcam appears to be just a recording. Am I doing something wrong?

Not sure why the code keeps changing. Maybe they're in some kind of experimental mode. All fixed again.

Thanks for letting me know!

Thanks for the heads up.

Apparently it's turned off each night and reset each morning so the code keeps changing and I have to update it each morning.
