Hacienda Contreras RV Park, Jalisco

RV / Trailer Park / House Rentals in Valle de Juarez, Jalisco

RV'ers - Hacienda Contreras Trailer / RV Park is a relatively new RV park (since 2007) just south of Lake Chapala. Now Hacienda Contreras is even more than a trailer park or RV park. The owners, Barb and Sal are working with local people to rent houses to those want to explore the interesting colonial area around Valle de Juarez, Jalisco for a week or a month or longer. House rentals will run about MX$3,000 to $5,000 (pesos) or around USD$240 to $400, depending on the house.

Hacienda Contreras Trailer Park is 80 miles SE of Guadalajara (just below Lake Chapala) near Mazamitla, Jalisco, which is off MEX-110 not too far from the old junction of MEX-110 and MEX-15 at Jiqillpan. The owners are old fans of mine (all my fans are mature) and recently contacted me. Their trailer park has grassy pads, EWS and a serene atmosphere. They are at 6,400 feet elevation so the weather is mild all year. Visit their web site and then visit them.

You could also fly to Guadalajara and take a bus or rent a car if wanted to get there. A taxi would charge about $900 pesos to deliver you. Renting a car and then driving would take about 2 1/2 hours. As with anywhere in Mexico, you could take a bus there, which would be about $100 pesos, but add in the taxi to the bus station for another $100 pesos.
