Mexico, one bite at a time

Pescado Zarandeado, Popotla, BC

Popotla is a smuggling (yes, really) & fishing village near Puerto Nuevo, just south of Tijuana on the Pacific Coast. The fishermen scratch out what they can in the daytime and at night, load up their pangas with pollos and cruise north. Loads are dropped on San Diego beaches; most people get through. But while they wait for their ship to come in, perhaps the smugglees enjoy a nice corvina at one of Popotla’s shacks. This place is what Puerto Nuveo used to be like. Go soon, if you’re going.
