Next stop - Cosala.
Cosala was named a "Pueblo Mágico" for its natural beauty, cultural riches, and history - it truly was beautiful! It is about 110 miles North of Maz, but takes about 3 hours to drive it. Maybe a little longer because of some major road construction.
There is actually two paths to Cosala, but one is considered very dangerous - good thing we didn't pick that one!
We stayed in Cosala two nights and did some sightseeing. We even hired a guide, Albert, who took us to through the Museum of Minerology, the macaw sancturary/reserve, around the Royal Mines of Cosala (still active), and a general tour of town. Lots of birds and everything is so green (lots of rain and beetles) We really enjoyed exploring!
Again, not a tourist town, but still found lots to do and lots to eat. My favorite Suizo Enchiladas at Dona Tichi - they were amazing, plus served in her beautiful home - Saturdays and Sunday only.
Just like the States, Saturday night is for seeing and being seen. The young folks drive around town while the older folks sit around the plaza - good people watching!
They are installing a new Zip Line at the reserve (triangle) - it was interesting watching it being built. This guy had to pull himself back - he was exhausted.
We are going to have to return to Cosala - Doug really wants to try the Zip Line - not me!
PS: While exploring the non-existent Valo Honda waterall, we found a cow (Bessie) in the swimming pool. Hope the locals were able to save her!
