Hualtuco

Wah-Tool-Co. This was a much needed surprise.  We could have checked out of Mexico at this place as was the original plan but we decided to delay the checkout until we got to Chiapas, on the other side of the dreaded Gulf of Tihuantepec. The coast here has several nice little bays, one has a…
