La Ticla


Text and photos: Pedro Silva Glass / CANAL235.COM

The hills of the Sierra de Coalcoman and Rio Ostula line the beach of La Ticla, where "surfers" and tourists arrive from around the world to enjoy the waves and the setting of this famous tourist eco hostel. 

La Ticla is located between the ports of Manzanillo, Colima and Lazaro Cardenas, Michoacan, in the coastal zone of Aquila, a few minutes from La Placita and Duin, traveling from the state of Colima. 

You can get a bus leaving from Manzanillo and Tecoman, or private car. Going down highway 200, a battered dirt road leads to the lodge located at the end of the village, inhabited by just a couple of hundred Nahua Indians, mestizos and a minority of foreigners, who are accustomed to the presence of "tourist".

On the beach some huts have been built, and excellent "palapas" that become perfect camping areas for the hundreds of visitors who come each season to participate or enjoy the spectacular surfing tournaments and other activities related to the sea and scenery. 

Nice palapas on the beach

Usually pretty good surf

A river mouth but not always open

Patzcuaro is the ex-capital of Michoacan and before that was Tzintzuntzan, a small town nearby dating to the Purhépecha empire in the 1300's. The museum in Patzcuaro is finding ruins in it's back yard that predates history and they are believed to be earlier than the history of Tzintzuntzan. The Purhépecha were one of the indigenous tribes that were not conquered by the Aztecs
