Am heading down this Saturday for a few good (and I hear probably soggy) days of R and R. Have decided at the last minute to rent a car and was just wondering if the road construction on Melgar in front of Mega (if memory serves me right) is completed? We were down last February and had a near head-on one evening with a dune buggy. I'm just trying to be prepared...=)

Any updates would be appreciated. Thanks!

No construction on Melgar. That doesn't mean that you won't have any more close calls though....

Right on, Pecas! =) Also think I heard somewhere that Melgar parking has changed since our last visit? 8 pm to 8 am and all day Sunday no worries? There are meters now? Still "red" zones? Again, any help would be appreciated. I like surprises, just not in the form of a booted tire on vacation.

Hi Christie,
Yes, there are meters on Melgar. They are the ones that you put your pesos in and get a ticket for the amount of time that you purchased which goes on the dash of your car. I have heard that the fellows with the boots are pretty vigilant so you need to make sure you get back to your car before the allotted time is up. Also, some of the meters appear to take only 1 or 2 peso coins, at 12 pesos per hour, that can get pretty tedious!

On the upside, there are usually lots of parking spaces available except on Sunday, when the parking is free.

Make sure to lock the doors of your car if you have a ticket on the dashboard so it doesn't get swiped. It is very easy to park on Melgar now and the few machines that we used did take 10 peso coins. We did stay at Vista del Mar and we regularly saw a pair of guys with a box full of boots looking for expired tickets.

parking is free on sundays, as mentioned, and after 8pm. so if you are parking at 7pm and plan on staying til 9 or 10, you only need to pay for one hour.
