Potrero Chico Rest Day

Potrero Chico Rest Day

Let’s face it at some point you’ll need a rest. A Potrero Chico rest day doesn’t need to be boring. Here are some points of interest as well as a map with all of these suggestions marked.

Tuesday Market

Don’t miss it. You can buy fresh fruits and vegetables, second hand clothes (thrift store style) and a lot of other useful and useless knick knacks. It usually starts around 10:30 and ends early afternoon sometime, it varies. This one isn’t on the map but it’s easy to find, just walk downhill with Potrero Chico at your back.

Tuseday Market

El Buho

Most people go to El Buho after they finish with the market. There you can find a very climber friendly environment with free wifi and awesome coffee. El Buho roast their own beans in house and I highly recommend checking them out.

Leos Tacos

Leos Tacos is at the little store close to La Posada. His deal is one price and you eat until you’re full. His food is North Mexican style, which means meat on the grill with rice, beans and empalmes. He has some options for vegetarians as well. Oh, he has a karaoke machine and it goes late into the night.

El Aguaje

This is where you can get a clamato, its a basically a Mexican style bloody mary with a few twist. Try one… Also he has the best margaritas in town. A few things to keep in mind, he closes on Sunday around 7:00pm and is closed on Mondays.

Carniceria La Mexicana

This is the little grocery store in town. They don’t have much but it’s enough. If you use our Airport Shuttle service we stop here so you can pick up some groceries.

ATM

Its next to the police station. If you need pesos this is a good option. Your bank will use the current exchange rate. It’s on the map I shared below.

Farmacia Benavides

The local pharmacy. Pretty much the same as home. It’s on the map I shared below.
