Pie de la Cuesta Waves

Pie de la Cuesta Waves
The waves of Pie de la Cuesta are crashing, banging, and fighting the shoreline, making one hell amount of noise. I am about 50 meters from the ocean with a huge set of building separating me from the waves, still it invades my space.

I know this beach, I know most every hotel on the beach, and I have been laughing at the evolution of this beach. I think I have one of the cheapest rooms on the beach, yet one of the best.

I could talk for days about the rooms on this beach, however after traveling for 10 years, I think the best rooms are probably on the Lagoon side, not on the Ocean side, still on the freshwater lagoon, however the noise is less, more shade, and more quiet.

Funny, they have paved the road, now the cars fly by so fast it now is like Acapulco, maybe I move there. Ok, this beach has outlived it shelf life, it has evolved from a nice Mom and Dad beach to something else, time to find the next one. I will stay a couple of weeks until Easter passes and the price of hotels go from some sort of high season crap, back down to,
“we are empty all the time, yet say we are full.”

My room has two 4 x 8 window with screens, the overall size of the room on the second floor is about 20 x 20, this is a huge room, the cross flow ventilation is great and the sun never shines on my room, there is always shade. The room was designed correctly; the price is just cheaper because he has not finished the hotel, a few things outside look awkward and under construction.
