San Evaristo is a quiet little fishing village. Very calm and beautiful. As it’s late in the season, we were one of three sailboats in the bay, one of which were our friends Michael and Tiki on S/V Marilon, who we met in Isla San Francisco.
There’s a small restaurant on shore, Lupe Sierra’s and Maggie Mae, that caters to cruisers and it’s where we met the folks from S/V Willful Simplicity who actually live full time in San Evaristo. They love the community of people and decided to make a home here. We enjoyed some very cold beer and freshly prepared food by Lupe and painted a seashell to add to the collection that makes up the cruiser’s monument around the restaurant.
The vibe here in San Evaristo is peaceful and we enjoyed just hanging out either at the restaurant or in the cockpit. Despite how hot the days got, the breezes were very cooling. We did do some hiking, accompanied by two local dogs who were eager to turn us into a pack, but the waters were too cold for us to enjoy any swimming.
While we could stay here in San Evaristo for a lot longer, it’s time to get moving north. Next stop, Agua Verde.
