Montepio, again

Montepio Beach, about an hour north of beautiful downtown Catemaco is the most visited beach in Los Tuxtlas and southern Veracruz.
The village of  Montepio sits at the edge of a valley surrounded by low hills on the shore of the Gulf of Mexico and is edged by two cold running streams. 
290 days of the year the resort is godforsaken and an idyll for beachcombers, the rest of the year you would have to pay me to go there.

I recently revisited and updated the beach's webpage with some new photos and comments.
