that's a nice article about la penita, guayabitos and chacala. I have friends that live and work in the first two places and feel for guayabitos years ago and used to visit every to or three months - the long beach there is great to walk on and it's a good long walk. I haven't been to hawaii but per...

though i haven't done it myself a number of my clients and acquaintences have and found it enjoyable. recommended.

no activity there as of 10 days ago. except for the new Oxxo going up right in front of it in the lot along the highway at the pulpito corner. I certainly hope they never build, unless they totally revamp and make the building fit in with the rest of the neighborhood, meaning 4-5 stories at most. wh...

headed in the right direction but need to speed it up even more so that most of these drugs are not only decriminalized but treated as controlled substances by the governments, and taxed. there has to be another way besides this endless war on drugs; plus far too many mexicans are becoming addicted ...

what do local people and visitors think of the place?
It does seem quite modern, hip and of course rather loud but that seems to have become the thing these days with the new places, and Mandala takes first prize there.
