No we are not at this RV part right now, but Becky and I just got off of a Skype call with another family who'd like to RV into Mexico and were interested in Clam Beach RV Park, when we dug into our blog posts we found out that we never posted about this great RV park.
So went through the photo archives and down memory lane. Next week we celebrate exactly 365 days since we first came into Mexico as a crew of 6. So for anyone interested in Clam Beach RV Park this should help you, and for those who want to have a conversation about how to live this lifestyle send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
This is the view we woke up to every morning. There's nothing like seeing the ocean out your windows!
The campground has a perfect sized wall to keep the high tides out and define where the campground starts so the beach walkers/runners don't come on in.
To give you a bit of perspective of the wall. Makes it really fun for the kids to play in the (dry) sand right near the RV, so we could get work done inside while knowing our kids were nearby!
The campground itself has no shade and the trees are quite young, however it's got a great set up with smooth streets, paved lots (easy to level on!) and paved patio areas. In this campground it's worth spending the extra 100 pesos or so to get the Ocean front row. -- Also they are able to negotiate on prices, check ioverlander.com for the most current deals people have been receiving.
Here's some context on the size of the park from the ocean. It's actually quite deep, and only half of the park is developed. The whole thing is gated but we were able to park our car hauler trailer in the not-yet-developed part of the park (about 20 trailers away from the beach). This RV Campground is between two cities and so it's not within walking distance (by gringo standards) to anything, it also means that other than the highway it's just the mountains behind you.
The view is quite nice and a great place to celebrate any holiday (we stayed there late November and early December 2015 . (It's been a whole year since!)
One day a hang glider/ultralight showed up, he wanted $30 pesos (about $2USD at the time, now $1.50USD) for a ride... however we could only do one person at a time... not ideal for us, some of our kids would be too scared, and at the time we weren't comfortable handing our kids over to a stranger in a motorized vehicle.
Beautiful waves, fun toys, and sunshine!
Looking South, the beach goes for a couple miles... awesome for runs, frisbee, sunrise walks, etc. Perfect to chill out and unwind in Mexico
Tide pools on the north end of the beach. The waves crash on the rocks and it's hard to know when the tide is coming or going... so be warned!
The beach is clean, but the sand has a lot of dirt in it, so be prepared to use the outdoor shower!
Our Crew at La bufadora (the blowhole) -- it's a fun trip, but be prepared to buy lunch and some souvenirs/christmas gifts. Lots of hawkers/vendors and prices are negotiable.
And a map of the good-to-know stuff there:
Happy Thanksgiving to those of you from the States. We've had a great year in Mexico and we're super blessed to be able to be here!
