" Is Under New Ownership"
You will start seeing a couple of lovely ladies here on this site and around our bay. You folks are the lucky ones, for now instead of the ramblings of an ole fart(me), you will hear from 2 young ladies who, I think, will have altogether new thoughts and possibly directions for this well known and popular site.

The new owners are:

Rosy Martinez - Arquitecta, Director of Sales
Rosy Camacho - Lic. de Administracion, Office Administration
Norman K. Lutgen - Director of Management

You have all put up with me long enough. It is time for us all to move on to new and better, what ever that means in our lives. Nothing much will change in the operation or usefulness of the site, so don't fret.  And I will be around for questions and assistance for as long as I am needed or wanted. You will also be able to find the new owners at a physical location in La Peñita, Oceano Pacifico # 30.

Welcome to all 3988 newsletter subscribers!  We hope that some of you enjoy watching our numbers grow, as much as we enjoy sharing them with you. There is not much growth this time of year, though!

It almost looked like the rainy season was coming to an end. Then along came hurricane Willa. The threats and the forecasts proved to be much worse than her bite. All is still well in Jaltemba Bay and there are no new storms on the horizon.

Reservations continue coming in for this coming season and many of the hoteliers are telling me that they are already booked. It is definitely time to get yourself booked in to your favorite spot.  If you have a choice, please consider patronizing one of our advertisers, if they aren't full already. Due to a technical glitch, one of the favorite rentals, Los Compadres Resort still has a couple openings. Please contact them via this link to their web page.

EPN is leaving a very violent Mexico

Resultado de imagen para epn

Last year of government was the most violent of which it was registered. with 28 thousand murders. It is a level that was not reached even in the years 2011 and 2012, the most violent of the six years of Felipe Calderón.
The crime incidence statistics of the Executive Secretariat of the National Public Security System (SESNSP) show that this year at least 95 women and men are murdered every day in Mexico, that is, an average of almost 4 victims per hour. It is a level that was not reached even in the years 2011 and 2012, the most violent of the six years of Felipe Calderón.
Another noteworthy fact is that of the total homicides recorded so far this year, 70 percent have been committed with firearms.

Regarding the specific victims of femicide, official data show that in October 76 more cases were registered, with the figure reaching 728 murdered women. If compared to what was registered in 2015, it is practically double the growth although, not three years ago, not all the states had classified this illicit act.

 After 32 years of technocrats Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador will mark a turning point in one of the world’s most radical experiments in opening markets and privatization.

His predecessor, Enrique Pena Nieto, leaves office with a historically low approval rating, which in several polls ranged from 20 percent to 24 percent. Pena Nieto failed to rein in Mexico’s rising homicide rate or deal with thousands of Central American migrants camped out on the border, leaving both intractable issues as the biggest immediate challenges facing Lopez Obrador.

There is a new president in Mexico

Andrés Manuel López Obrador


There were people of all ages and social strata: 160,000 people according to official figures.

When Mr. AMLO went up to the shrine, ready for the celebration with which he began his government, a group of representatives of 68 indigenous peoples and the Afro-Mexican performed a purification ritual.

They gave him the baton, as a sign that the indigenous peoples recognize him as a leader. It is the first time that a president of Mexico receives it.

"Here is the baton, the symbol with which you will lead our people, we want to remind you that we want to be taken into account in your plans for these 6 years," said one of the Indians.

The atmosphere in the zocalo and in the streets of downtown Mexico City was festive.
People waved flags of Mexico and others with the image of AMLO.

He also asked the new president, the first left in 70 years in Mexico, to "command obeying the people."

Federal police invest 23 thousand mp for the prevention of crime, but violence continues

Imagen relacionada

The Federal Police allocated 23 billion pesos in 2017 to "operatives for the prevention and deterrence of crime", and although it met the planned goals such as the development of criminal files or biometric databases, this did not translate into less violence or improve the security conditions in the country, that is, it did not have a social effect.

This is the conclusion of the performance audit 22-GB to the Federal Police, regarding the component "Operatives for the Prevention and Deterrence of Crime", carried out as part of the second Public Account report of 2017.

The Federal Police program established goals that met 100%, such as 481 institutional operations based on scientific inquiries, 575 criminal files, 52 risk agendas, and entered 10,520 biometric and ballistic data into the databases, in addition to executing 7,447 operations in response to requests submitted by local authorities.


The second caravan of Central American migrants is approaching Jalisco

Resultado de imagen para The second caravan of Central American migrants is approaching Jalisco

Jalisco prepares for a second wave of migrants During the past week, just over 6,000 migrants arrived in Jalisco to the Benito Juarez shelter in Zapopan, which was closed by the governor of Jalisco, Aristóteles Sandoval Díaz, on the grounds that they no longer expected mass arrivals.

Last week the migrants who arrived were of 12 nationalities, especially Guatemala, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, and Belize.

A total of 612 members of a fraction of the second caravan of migrants departed at 6:30 am on Sunday from the La Corregidora stadium and headed towards Guanajuato.

Civil Protection of the state, through its official Twitter account, reported that migrants who stayed overnight Saturday at the stadium continued their journey to Tijuana, Baja California.

Through the inter-institutional group that headed the state government, 1,669 people were served in different groups since their arrival on Friday, Saturday and Sunday where they received medical attention and food

US federal judge blocks President Trump's order to deny migrants asylum

A federal judge in the United States temporarily blocked a new order from the Donald Trump government that denies the possibility of obtaining asylum for people who enter the country illegally.

President Trump signed a decree this month to automatically reject asylum applications filed by people who illegally crossed the border into Mexico.

District Judge John Tigar, in San Francisco, issued this temporary ruling against the decree, in response to the lawsuit filed by civil rights organizations.

The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) states that the law stipulates that anyone entering the country, regardless of whether they do so legally or illegally, can file an asylum application.

Judge Tigar indicated that the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) of 1965 establishes that any foreigner who arrives in the United States, "whether or not through a port of entry," may request asylum.

The decree "that prohibits giving asylum to immigrants who enter the country by evading a port of entry is in irreconcilable conflict with the INA and the express intention of Congress", is Tigar's ruling.

"Whatever the extent of the presidential authority, it can not rewrite immigration laws to impose a condition that Congress expressly prohibited," he added.

Migrants overwhelm Tijuana;
Mayor declares humanitarian crisis

Resultado de imagen para Migrants at the sports complex-shelter in Tijuana.

The mayor of Tijuana has declared a humanitarian crisis due to the massive number of Central American migrants who have swamped the city.

Juan Manuel Gastélum, who has been labelled Tijuana’s Trump because of anti-migrant rhetoric last week, told a press conference yesterday that the declaration is in accordance with articles in the federal Migration and Refugee laws. Attending to the thousands of mainly Honduran caravan members is costing the city more than 500,000 pesos (US $25,000) a day, he declared.

The mayor urged President Peña Nieto and Interior Secretary Alfonso Navarrete to assume responsibility for the migrants, taking particular aim at the latter’s department (Segob) for leaving municipal authorities to deal with the situation on their own.

“Mexican laws establish that [Segob] is the department responsible for dealing with the issue from the beginning,” Gastélum said.

“I’m not going to compromise public services, I’m not going to spend the money of the people of Tijuana, I’m not going to put Tijuana into debt . . .” he declared.

Tres Raíces 
It is not another fancy winery in the Bajío 

Resultado de imagen para tres raíces bajio

Incorporating parts of Guanajuato, Querétaro, Jalisco, Zacatecas, San Luis Potosí and Aguascalientes, the region actually has a long history of winemaking. Guanajuato state is reported to have been the first place in the Americas were wine grapes were grown, particularly encouraged by priest, winemaker and revolutionary Miguel Hidalgo.


San Miguel would seem ripe to become the next mini-Napa Valley. With lots of money flowing into what was once a quaint Mexican backwater, the town has exploded with gourmet restaurants, high-end boutique hotels and a mix of culture and art that attracts a substantial expat population and streams of national tourists.

Just outside of town several of the region’s winemakers have decided to set up shop. One of them is the Tres Raíces project, opened this past August on the road between Dolores Hidalgo and San Miguel. As you approach the turnoff in the road, there is just a simple sign, almost hidden, that says Tres Raíces.

 Christmas Stocking Campaign 2018

Imagen relacionada

With December just around the corner, it´s time to kick off our annual Christmas Stocking Campaign, but this year there´s a difference.


All of us in the Jaltemba Bay Area dodged a bullet when Hurricane Willa missed us, but unfortunately there was a great deal of damage done in the Northern part of Nayarit. There have been several caravans of aid collected in our area and delivered to the areas hardest hit, but these have focused on basic needs like food and shelter. Now, it’s time to look at other needs.


With that in mind, we decided that the proceeds from this year´s Christmas Stocking Campaign will be sent to the schools most affected by the Hurricane. They are Centro de Atención, Múltiple Nu. 3 in Tecuala, Primaria Surco Nuevo in Huajuquilla, Municipio de Tecuala, and Primaria Miguel Hidalgo y Costilla, in Agua Verde, Municipio de Tecuala. Community members and other volunteers are working hard to get the schools ready to re-open as you can see in the photos below. Once the physical facilites are ready, teachers and students will need supplies.

So, what can you give? The short answer is ANY SCHOOL SUPPLY will be appreciated - whether it be basics like notebooks, crayons, pens and pencils, or more ‘exotic’ items such as markers, glue, colored paper, scissors, teaching aids, or craft items. And of course, PESOS would be greatly appreciated to ‘fill the gaps’.

The stockings will be hung at the following locations, from November 29 (Thursday) until December 21 (Friday):


In La Penita: Armando’s Joyería, Chasite Cafe, Petra’s Community Cultural Centre, Única

In Rincon de Guayabitos: Las Tres Banderas (George’s Coffee Shop), Pina Colada


To get the ball rolling, we will have a Kick-off this coming Thursday, November 29 at 10 am at Chasite Cafe. When you are finished shopping in tianguis, drop in and drop off whatever you can offer, and enjoy some of their wares while you are there.


This year in particular, we encourage you to be generous. THE NEED IS GREAT.


With our thanks,

Helma and Nora (Las Tres Amigas)

Los Compadres Resort
We stayed here a while ago for four weeks. What a joy it was to get up and drink our coffee every morning on our balcony with the incredible view of Jaltemba Bay. The suites are a great size, have everything that you need and George and Loretta are the most wonderful hosts. It is a ten minute walk into the town and an easy twenty five minute walk to Guayabitos. Don't forget to visit George and Loretta's Hilltop Refugio as well and see the incredible facility they've built to help rescue and treat all kinds of animals. We highly recommend Los Compadres.

Hamaca Maya
This is your one stop shop for the largest and most beautiful selection of hammocks in all of Mexico. Don't bother wasting time elsewhere. If you're looking for a hammock-THIS is the place. If you're looking for a lame Tshirt or trinket that can be found anywhere else in Mexico, then move on. If you want unique and fun take home prezzies for friends, family and yourself... then don't miss this amazing little gem in La Penita. And the bonus is the owner is as colourful and vibrant as the cool stuff she carries. We love it and never miss an opportunity to check it out when we're there. Absolutely FIVE star worthy.

Buhardilla Restaurant - Guayabitos
My wife and I ate here Saturday night Feb 10, and it was great. Our table wasn't the best but I was late making the reservation and it was the only table for 2 left so you take what you can get. My wife had the raviolis and they were excellent although a very small serving. If it would have been me who ordered them I would have been left hungry and upset. For her, it was barely enough and she ate several pieces of the delicious bread they served with the meal to fill up. I had the fettuchini carbonarra and it was delicious and almost more than I could eat. The sauce was excellent and the pasta was cooked to perfection. Service was prompt and courteous from a waitress who spoke perfect English, and prices were certainly not out of line. All in all a very enjoyable evening!   Murray Dryburgh
