San Patricio Melaque and Villa Obregón are the two adjacent beachfront villages that come together at the street Alvaro Obregón and make up the community referred to on this web page as Melaque. The village of San Patricio Melaque is to the west of Calle Alvaro Obregón and has been a vacation retreat for generations of Mexicans and more recently by Canadians. San Patricio Melaque is the larger of the two villages and contains the town square and most of the retail shops. Villa Obregón is to the east of Calle Alvaro Obregón and is more residential in character. The two villages form the largest coastal community between Puerto Vallarta and Manzanillo.

Regional Map

Melaque is located only 2 miles northwest of Barra de Navidad and shares the same long curving beach. Melaque does have numerous accommodations along the beachfront road which goes by Avenida Las Palmas to the west, Gómez Farías downtown, and Abel Salgado Velasco in the more residential area on the eastern end. Las Palmas terminates into an informal trailer park area that marks the end of the beach. A hiking trail, Andador Punta Melaque extends further along the coast. Unfortunately, there is no place for boats to dock since the beach is not suitable for this and the lagoon does not extend to the ocean.

There are a couple of bus stations downtown and across the street is a bank (Banamex) with an ATM machine GPS 19°13.427'N 104°42.456'W, which is the best place to get your pesos. Note that the Banamex bank in Melaque will not change US or Canadian travellers cheques or cash to pesos unless you have an account with the bank! Four blocks back from the beach is the central plaza (GPS 19°13.53'N 104°41.31'W) where you will find a pharmacy, newsstand, post office and municipal building. Between the plaza and the beach is a large market. The traveling market comes to Melaque on Wednesdays.

While I was there in early March 2000, they were having their Fiesta del Torros which included rodeo events and nightly fireworks.
