My wife and I have spent a month in the Huatulco area. As we had never been here before, every second day was spent exploring a new venue or area. Today we wanted to experience the mud wraps on La Bocana beach. While they were fun and certainly worth trying out at least once. However our real surprise was stumbling upon the La Bocana restaurant and bar locales there. Mayra and Ariana, two of the family members who run this establishment were EXCEEDINGLY kind. We just stopped in just to ask them about things in the area to see. We got a history lesson of the archeological significance of this area and great details about local sight seeing. They permitted us to occupy a table with our beach bags while we explored the area, without any obligation. When we returned back, we decided to have a lemonade before returning to Santa Cruz. This was our mistake! We looked at the menus and saw five fresh fish tacos for 100 pesos ($6.50 Canadian). Well you can't have fish tacos without a beverage or two. After lunch on their beautiful ocean front terrace, we did not want to leave. It was a perfect setting. What to do? I know, let's eat more and drink more.
We had them make us up some nacho chips and three different sauces ( mild, medium and hot) and a couple more drinks.
We spent most of the remainder of day here, even though we had originally only intended to drop in and ask a simple question.
However their genuine kindness and friendliness quickly won us over.
I can't wait to come back.
On a side not, while eating our lunch we watched a local fisherman wade deep into the surf over and over and cast his circular net out into the ocean. He was fishing for sardines and in three hours collected a huge pail of them.
You'll also have to meet their two tame parrots who kept watch over the restaurant from the tree out front. Great for photos.
Next year we plan on visiting the nearby archeological park early in the morning before it gets two hot. Then return to this restaurant (5 minutes away) and have a cool drink or two and another wonderful meal. I'd highly recommend this restaurant but plan to spend the day relaxing here.
