For our last few days in Mexico, we will be staying at Casa Tranquila in Bucerias, just 18 kilometers North of the airport.
Casa Tranquila (like Roberto’s Bungalows) consists of several small apartments in an enclosed courtyard.
All the apartments are pretty small. We have, I think, chosen the smallest, called “Suzie Wong” mainly because of the sliding screen-door between the air-conditioned bedroom and the non-airconditioned everywhere-else.
Casa Tranquila (on the left in the next photo) is home to the Gringo Bookstore … the simple red building on the right.
The outside of the bookstore may be plain but the inside looks quite magical and appears to act as a general town meeting place and coffee shop.
And if “working” in the courtyard makes us a bit too warm, we can take a dip in the pool … or walk two blocks to the beach … which stretches for several miles in both directions.
