Lo de Marcos is a small beach community in the state of Nayarit. Most residents are either farmers, fishermen, merchants, or work in the hospitality sectors, (food/lodging). The town swells each fall when more than one thousand expats mostly from Canada arrive to spend October-March. Population falls to under one thousand souls after the Canadians return home to qualify for their annual health care, and most others part time residents escape the torrid rainy season.
Lo de Marcos is a dusty town with a central plaza, a Catholic church, and pristine beach with dramatic waves. Off the beaten track for tourists, it is quiet and friendly. Like the rest of Mexico, its electrical wiring is rather chaotic.
