On my third trip to central Mexico, I discovered this gem of a RV park, and ended up staying 5 days. The first thing I noticed was the abundance of butterflies, which indicates a healthy property. It is now at the top of my "A" list.
They have now started a snowbird club, which, for $33,000 pesos, includes 7 months storage, and a 5 month stay. I have no financial interests, but am just passing on the information for those who might be interested.
A little off topic, but when upgrading to a Residente Permanente, does the remainder of the 10 year permit remain valid, and able to be renewed? I know foreign plated cars must be removed or nationalized. I live in Mexico full time, and nationalizing would not be practical. I have searched, but am not coming up with anything definite.
Russ nails it. For those of us who live full time in Mexico, wanting to do a cruise, and not travel to California or Florida, it’s a no brainer. I live at a beach town, but a cruise would be appealing, and give me a chance to see the Baja without driving. They were supposed to base a ship here in Mazatlan, but it didn’t happpen. Hopefully, Puerto Penasco will. Would work out great for me, as I will get a new RV permit, do some shopping NOB, catch a Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers concert, and the cruise is a bonus. May even do the Copper Canyon again, and make it a killer trip.
The original toilet in my B was a recycling one, which used the contained liquids for flushing, and the stench was oppressive. I replaced it with a cassette toilet, which I use for #2, and can be poured down any toilet. For #1, I use a portable urinal from my kayaking days, and empty it in any toilet. If none is available, I have a grey water tank, so pour it down the bathroom sink. I know that is TMI, but has served me well travelling all over Mexico for the past 7 years.
I have stayed in all of the cities mentioned, but my favorite remains San Miguel de Allende. If you have a smaller rig, you can stay in town, and walk wherever you want. You are a short distance from Guanajuato, probably the most beautiful city in Colonial Mexico, which has a park about 10km out of town. Patzcuaro also has a campground in town. If you have a tow vehicle, any of the cities mentioned will work.
As a single person, with both a RV and auto fulltime in Mexico, I have a driver's license policy. It is written through Qualitas, and the premium is $176.00 for $300,000 coverage, and is for the entire country.
As an RV'er, make sure you are covered for the Mexican states you will be travelling. Many policies, offering low premiums, do not cover you for the high liability ones.
