Melaque and Dead Hotel #2

Melaque is a typical retiree beach town; cute and lots of not-too-expensive hotels. I've stopped taking pictures of places like this, except Melaque also has a huge dead hotel. Casa Grande, which once hosted 1,000 tourists at a time, was severely damaged in a 1995 earthquake:

Yes, I have some sort of fetish for civic decay.
