Costa Alegre is filled with little roadside stands, displaying their goods for sale. The photo is of one I found between Barra de Navidad and Cihuatlan. You can find local fruits, breads, candies and more. The smiling propietors will offer you samples of Ponche, a local drink in many different flavors (contains a little alcohol). I also suggest you try Cajeta, a condensed goat milk that makes a caramel-like treat that will make your taste buds dance. The treat is traditionally packaged in a little wooden box that make great gifts for friends back home.
These markets are a perfect way to feel completely immersed in the Mexican culture while not putting a strain on your wallet!


    Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
