A Quick Update

In 2010, we moved back to the small town in Colorado that I never stopped missing while we lived in Mexico. Now I sometimes miss Mexico, but I wouldn't travel as freely as we did when we were there, camping out in remote areas and so forth.

Mexico today is in a period of change, and in many ways it is more dangerous now. That said, I have plenty of American friends who still live there very happily, just taking a few more precautions than they did in the past.

Just to say!


Visit Expedia…

Expedia is my favorite place to book airfare, and they handle hotels, car rentals, cruises, etc. I like the organization of the site for figuring out what flights I want. Click on the suitcase to take a look.

I was very pleased to win an award for this blog! Even better for you: click through for lists of all sorts of award-winning travel blogs.

Mazatlan is a favorite RV destination for people from the US and Canada, as well as the occasional adventuresome Europeans. On a recent trip there in our motor home, we met many people who were there for the whole winter. We were just passing through briefly, but it was easy to see the appeal of being there longer.

At first, we went to the Mar-a-Villa, which is probably the northernmost RV park to be right on the beach. It had mature bamboo between the spots, and the shade was welcome even in December!

The view out to the water was lovely as you approached the beach:

Later, we moved to the San Fernando RV Park, as it was closer to the Zona Dorada, where so many of the tourist activities are centered… and it had a laundromat, which we needed at the time! It was somewhat less charming (though it had a gorgeous pool) but very practical. We also appreciated the large empty lot behind it where we could walk our dog.

There are numerous other RV parks in Mazatlan. I highly recommend the book, Traveler’s Guide to Mexican Camping to any RVers. (The link takes you to my review of it.)
