Day 8: along the Costa Esmeralda to the Costa de Oro (487 kms)
Encouraged by our ride out to Tamiahua, we took another detour at the end of a long day of riding through Veracruz state: out along a tertiary road to a town called Roca Partida. We spoke to a few locals and determined it would be fine to camp on the beach. Neither of us was particularly hungry, but a cerveza was nice. As night was falling, it looked as though it would rain, but it was only the sea moisture piling up against San Martin volcano. We stayed dry all night.
