After getting a small group of us together, we headed out for Masunte. This was of course another place I hadn't heard of before. Zipolite was another option known for it's big drug scene, but we opted for this town instead. After being dropped off at the nearest bus station, we found the nearest taxi, which turned out to be someone's truck. We rode in the back for about 30 minutes before being dropped off at a dirt road. We took their word for it and walked down it. At the end we walked onto the sandy beaches of Masunte. This place was amazing, and looked like we had just stepped into a hidden paradise. There were only a few restaurants there, and 2 guest houses to choose from.
Just a side note...a guy in our group tried to buy some peyote from a local. He ended up getting ripped off and left waiting inside some random house. Bummer for him, but the rest of us found it pretty amusing.
