Volkswagon Festival in Guayabitos

WHERE ARE WE? La Penita, Mexico

Oscar and I took a little trip today down the road to Guayabitos.  Its about 3 miles!!  They are having a Volkswagon Festival.  Kenia was already there and had secured us parking right inside the front gate.  She is good friends with all the policia around here so she gets special treatment.  She is also friends with the people who have a large lot right there so they saved me a spot.   Yup thats the yellow Jeep!!

And the policia dropped the barrier for me to pass.

Guayabitos is the tourist town around here.  If ever you are looking for an all inclusive in a quaint little town, check out Rincon Guayabitos.  But because it is a tourist town, it is busy all the time.  Festivals like this attract a lot of people from all around as well as the tourists.

They have some pretty sweet rides on display and I could see that Oscar was dreaming of one day having one of his own.   He was amazed how they could pump up the suspension with air.

Even a VW truck!

This was the only Carmen Gia I saw there.  This lady was doing some sort of professional photo shoot and wouldn't get out of the way so I just included her.  Could have been worse I guess!!!

Oscar and I took a little break from the show and wandered down to the beach to see what was going on.   Like I said, its a little crowded in this town and the beach is no exception.

We had a that weird red tideish thing here for a couple days and some of the eels are still washing up on shore.  Most of the locals don't really care and just work around them.   This one was about 4 ft long.

There were hundreds of VW's so it was hard not to take pictures of some of them at least.  This one was getting a good polish job from a super hero!!

Some of them were really modified.  I don't think this one was factory.

And of course Herbie the Love Bug!!  That was the first movie that I ever saw in a movie theater.  Do you remember it?

Big and little.

And a mini 2 seater bug.

For the evening we had invited Blair and Joanne and Pat and Harold to join us for supper at Sergio's restaurant Las Koritas. 

Sunday is always rib night so I indulged.  Wow!!  they were delicious.

Sergio is a great host and has become a friend of ours.  He is like the King of this whole street and knows where to find any resource you need at any time.  His smile is very genuine and can lift your spirits anytime you talk to him.  

Something that Mexicans like are grilled or fried Platinos.  I won't even get into what the difference is between platino and platino with a squiggly over the a!  These ones are quite chubby, and only good to eat if they are grilled or fried.  The blacker the better!!!

Had a fun day with Oscar and friends and now its time to go home to bed.  Goodnight!


  1. What a fun day you and Oscar must have had, thanks for sharing :-)

    1. Oscar is always fun to be around. It must be boring for him hanging out with an old man!!!

  2. Well that day sounds great with Oscar. Love how he's in the pictures with the VW's. I'm sure he'd love one of his own!
    That plate of food with the ribs looks delicious. You could keep the pasta though. ;)

  3. Great pictures! I think Herbie was my first movie in a theater too lol
