    Looks like I know where I'm going now...thank you! And hopefully the water levels are decent since it's been raining up in that area quite a bit this year.

    Yes, yes it is. There's also a ridiculously good place called Cocina Oaxaquenia next to the baseball stadium...it's hard to find but wow...the food is absolutely amazing. 3 people eating costs $15...with some of the best authentic mexican food you could have.

    Go kayaking and come back when it's starting to become low tide, and you'll see dozens and dozens of sting rays 2 feet below you...it's a little sketchy lol

    thats terrible. I love to swim in the ocean but last time we were there (A few weeks ago) i didnt bother because of similar information. I may have to keep the kids from swimming in it too and then...what the point of being there! its like 95 degrees, humid as hell and I cant swim in the water..

    Not only is it hot, but it's humid as a mojo. You can swim around just fine...all you have to do is walk out a little bit and shuffle your feet and clear out an area...if there are any rays there they will scatter and not come back until it's calm. They don't want to be around you, and won't come near if you guys are just messing around. If you really want to avoid them, then stay in Las Conchas area where it's a bit more rocky and there are no rays where there are rocks.

    The whole gulf is like that from what I know. My buddy is handling all the lodging as renting the houses is nearly impossible online due to people trying to avoid taxes, he knows people down there and its a private community so its really nice, its just not the best swimming water I guess.

    PS it is seashell heaven and thats what the wife cares about. Ill just drink in the shade :)

    I have hiked West Fork and Devil's Bridge. Neither were very challenging and I would recommend both. West Fork has water crossings and great scenery along the way. Devil's Bridge has a great view and picture opportunity at the end.

    Ha, that reminds me of some of the worst pain ever.

    A few summers back my son got stung by a stingray in California. He kept going on and on because the pain wouldn't stop. We gave him a hard time because he doesn't handle pain well. (he was probably 13 or 14)

    Then the next day I got stung. Hurt like heck for 2 hours! I had to apologize and he enjoyed his schadenfreude.

    Needless to say, we did not know about the feet shuffling rule :)

    I think it's just a myth...you're really supposed to rinse it off with the salt water and then get in hot water right after lol
