Waves crash rapidly on the yellow sand, blowing away layers of gold over the lush green Pacific. I have known this ocean all my life and yet never felt it so warm and inviting. It is like Sol, and the soul to has spent a little more time here.
I spend my day under palm trees and trying to pluck yellow coconuts out of my mind completely. I haven’t been successful yet, but when I find away, I’ll let you know.
There are neither high-end hotels nor dazzling lights. The cell signal barely works, even in the city, although there are charming shops and delicious restaurants to keep you busy. What is your wish The perfect cheesecake, cactus tacos, or maybe fancy fish for under a dollar?
Just take a walk, it feels like anything can be discovered here.
There is only one important thing to do, and that is to relax. Nowhere, no schedule to maintain, no alarm to set.
It was by chance that I ended up here. I was originally looking at Sayulita, but found nothing on the sand, cast a wide net and found a bungalow, which is a ten-minute walk from the nearest town of San Francisco and Playa San Pancho. It stepped like fate because it is a city with a dancing, happy and healthy dogs, running in free-range, and surprising the turtles in the sea.
Can you think of a more perfect place to do nothing?
Nothing but sleep, wake up the beautiful ocean, plunge into the pool when it feels right, make a banana strawberry smoothie because all the fruits in Mexico somehow seem to be fully ripened, and the form of pelicans, frigates and some I see Other yellow birds I cannot name announce the late afternoon arrival. Then the sun turns orange, extinguishes in the ocean until another day comes and goes, and I rinse and repeat.
I wish I could write a list of ‘things to do’ here – or in fact, I’m not doing that – not doing things was a perfectly good thing. It is a place like nature that begs you to slow down. The beach is not very long, there are no signs in the advertising day tours of the city, no one is in the shop calling you to book an excursion. San Pancho is designed to be laid back and is a delicious perfection.
How often are we busy in life that we rarely notice when our health starts to go away or our relationships suffer? How often are we on vacation, really just slow down, sleep, and have no agenda? For me, this is a constant situation to do, and I just did a lot in San Pancho, and this is what I needed.
If this is what you need as well, I hope you will investigate it. But don’t let the word come out too much, okay? Let’s just keep this little secret between you and me.
