Only 1 confirmed active case of Covid-19 along the entire Costa Grande of Guerrero, in Petatlán where a case of dengue was also confirmed recently.

Foreigners keep arriving in increasing numbers including many old acquaintances and familiar faces. ¡Bienvenidos!

Cinema Flamingo in Ixtapa is expected to reopen on November 3 after being closed for several months "for renovations". I'll post the cartelera as soon as it's available.

A sea turtle became confused by all the lights on the waterfront and ended up in the canal the other morning. Took it a while to find its way out. I also continue seeing footprints from baby tortugas that almost all go in the wrong direction TOWARDS the extremely brightly lit walkway. I can only hope people are helping them get to the water (which means they are being handled, something that should not be done) or else the beach dogs are eating them. We've already seen the beach dogs dig up their nests. Ecología apparently couldn't care less even though they brag about the numbers of nests they say they've "saved".

The price has come down on the cruise around the bay in lit pangas next Monday to $100, and they depart at 6PM. Get your tickets at the Cooperativa Teniente José Azueta. Tel. (755) 554-2056

Make your reservations now for Thanksgiving Dinner at Deborah's Restaurant. Two seatings: 5:30 and 7:30. She'll have all the trimmings! And save room for dessert!

Thanks for the pic of Playa la Madera. I've read your posts and others about the view-blocking renovations of Madera. If you're in the area, please share a pic of the developments.

Deborah’s is another great restaurant that offers breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Their filete de dorado mojo de ajo appears as a basic plate. However, I believe they use bigger chunks of ajo which allows for greater carmelization which perfectly adds a fine crust to the filete.

Their salsa de Chile de arbol has a great balance of oil and heat which perfectly accompanies a piece of the filete in a tortilla with a slash of limon.

And of course, tasteful margaritas.

They are scheduled to start receiving/serving atun next week. The atun is served over a mango sauce.

They are located in Ixtapa in the corner of the parking lot where Merza is located - far left corner when facing Merza.

Always a good place to eat. Had some mahi-mahi we caught prepared 2 different ways. $80 per person including the sides. Did the Thanksgiving dinner there years ago, it was excellent.
