Updated March 16: New campsites south of Puerto Vallarta, and into the Mountains..
Our YES friends, Beth and Geoff have decided to settle down from life on the road in their large RV motor coach for a few months. They are settled near a small Mexican community a little over an hour north of Puerto Vallarta with their campsite being located with a waterfront view of the lovely sandy beach to enjoy watching sunsets every day!
The RV campground has a large community of welcoming ex-pats staying there, including many Canadians. They have many daily group centric activities, in addition to great amenities like laundry service, fresh homemade bread, vegetable delivery, bottled water delivery, massage therapist, nails and hair services.
- Water volleyball in the pool
- Pickle ball
- Womens walking group every morning
Here are a of Beths posts as they settled into the RV lifestyle there.
|Ocean water is very warm like a swimming pool. The large RV was a tight fit for the remote cobblestone entrance road, but they made it. Electrical service is generally 15/20 Amp only. Typically MX$250 – 350/night (US$13-20).
