This wonderful stretch of deserted beach lies just south of Rincon de Guayabitos on the "Nayarit Riviera". The whole area has been bought up by developers who are working very slowly to put together resorts and vacation properties. It is fenced off and there are guards, who let us gringos in for a hike. The whole situation is sad as it is displacing locals and unnecessarily depriving access to recreation areas for all of us. In the small town of Monteon, locals can no longer take their families to the town beach, just 2 km. from the village even though there is no construction happening.

Un magnifique endroit que tu as bien su mettre en valeur. Dommage que des constructions immobiliŤres viennent g‚cher ce paradis et que les locaux ne puissent plus en profiter.

I only noticed this after reading your remark on the forum, and now I wonder how I could have missed this one.
I guess that on the thumbnail it looks like just another tree-on-the-beach shot, not bad, but not that special either.
It isn't until you see it on full scale that you notice the car in the corner, and that's what makes this shot stand out. Strange how this pov makes the tree really big and the car so small.
Great wide view of the bay. This shot confirms: Mexico is too big for one trip. This looks like a another great place I'd love to discover...although judging from your note, it might be too late already?
Tourism is not a blessing, but sometimes people are.

its funny how the simple things mean so much...for example i didn't realize how large that tree was until i looked at the car along the road - thats a pretty darm big tree! size perspective is crucial in this photo.
elegant tones and colours in the BG.
