We Finally Made It To Bahia De La Ascension
On our second try, we made it all the way to Bahia De La Ascension and the little town of Punta Allen Mexico on Wednesday January 27 th. We anchored out in the bay when we got there because there was a south wind and the anchorage near Punta Allen is open to the south.
The guide book says that the town is a sleepy little fishing village and there are no restaurants, bars, grocery stores or lodges. Well things have changed since that guide book was written. We saw a couple of small grocery stores, three lodges, four or five Mexican style taco restaurants and six or eight tourist bars and/or restaurants on the beach. We spent Sunday walking around town and eating nachos and drinking cervezas at the Muelle Viejo (Old Dock) Restaurant.
