Rancho Buganvilias RV Resort, La Placita, Michoacan

RV'ers who the drive the southern Pacific coast will be happy to hear that an old favorite RV resort is back in business. Rancho Buganvilias RV Resort was on hiatus for a few years but is back under the same management.

This is a gorgeous location with access to a virgin flat, 8 mile beach in front. Rancho Buganvilias has all the facilities of any good RV park. Plus they have cell service and Internet. It is operated by Sandy and Cynthia who will make you feel right at home. Their prices are reasonable and they have a "quiet time" between 10 PM and 8 AM when generators must be turned off. That is welcome news for many. Pets are, of course, welcome if well-behaved. That should be said for humans too.

Their GPS coordinates are N- 18.51139, W -103.58417 or 18°30' 41" N by 103°35'3"W.

Their new website is working its way to completion. Should you want to contact them now, the phone is 619-385-1133 or 619-458-5947. Email is ranchobmexico -- AT -- gmail.com. Their FaceBook page is here.
