Mexican RV parks

(commonly called Trailer Parks) come and go. 2020 was a brutal year for them and many will be gone in 2021. I will keep you advised on trailer parks that are open and parks that close.

The Pacific Coast of Mexico and Baja have more RV parks than any other part of the country. This is a synopsis of the major Mexican Trailer or RV parks in all Mexico.

I am very happy to help promote a few Mexican RV campgrounds as I hear about them.

Yucatan area

The owner of this small ranch, Gabriel Valdes, has made spaces for 3 RVs under 26 feet There are also a few bungalows for rent. This is a very personal experience. There is a pool and well-equiped gym. Two friendly dogs patrol the grounds as well as ducks and other fowl. Cash payments only.

Acamaya Reef, Pto. Morelos, Q. Roo

Gulf Coast

Campeche RV Park (truly handicapped accessible)- Isla Aguada, Campeche

Villas Tepetapan Closed. Have customers looking for alternative spot.

El Rey, Anton Lizardo, Veracruz. Open but apparently overcharging customers per person. Negotiate price before parking.

Colonial area

Minihaus Suites (RV Park) - San Miguel de Allende - the newest addition to this list is very special. It is so classy they probably would not let me in, but you are welcome. This is more of an artist enclave than a traditional RV park, though you can park here without proving your artistic abilities.

It is an eclectic place built to honor the original expats who help with the foundation of the charities San Miguel is famous for and development of San Miguel as the expat haven it is today. There are tiny houses, RV spaces and more all energy efficient and sustainable. Here's what the owners wrote me:

Hi Mike
We have a project in San Miguel de Allende Established by Canadian Women Artists ,St Laurent Gardens, we have created space for 15 RVs. The project has a large guesthouse, Artist Salon. We have lots of parking. Rural setting. Mountain views. We want to offer the project to Canadians. Best wishes, Gene Fisher and Maggi Hutchins.

San Juan del Lago RV Resort on Lake Cuitzeo in the state of Michoacan is a welcome addition to RV parks in colonial Mexico. I was impressed by the philosophy of the owners. Please take a look at what they offer in central colonial Mexico near Morelia, Michoacan.

Roca Azul RV Park and Cabins - Jocotepec, Jalisco. This is a long-time favorite park I visited back in the day I wrote the Sanborn's Travelog. That was many years ago in dog years and it was great then and now. Thermal waters, peaceful all hookups and has cabins for non-RV clients. One of my favorites. Longitude (dec): -103.424167 - Latitude (dec): 20.266667.

Trailer Park Chapala is the newest entrant to the area. It's 6.13 miles (9.9 KM) SE of the Macrolibramiento on the airport highway (Guadalajara - Chapala). Exit for Ixtlahuacan  de los Membrillos. My good friend and astute RV park reviewer, Deena has stayed there and wrote warmly and succinctly of it thusly: This park is a terrific new facility where the folks really try to please. They've done everything right and continue to make improvements.

Trailer Park Chapala is open and has spacious sites each with spectacular unobstructed mountain views and city of Guadalajara. Sanitary dump, 30 or 50 amp service, water and wifi at sites. Big rig friendly, common palapas. Securely gated, 2 large washrooms w hot showers, free laundry. Propane, gas, shopping and markets all nearby. Chapala and Ajijic minutes away.

Pacific Coast

Buganvilias RV Resort - near La Placita, Michoacan has reopened! This lovely park with big lots overlooks virgin beach and has all the amenities. Welcome back!

Rancho Sol y Mar in Mayto, Jalisco is a wonder to behold. They are 100% environmentally sustainable and offer interaction with locals so that foreigners like you and me can understand Mexico. They also have cabins and tents for rent.

Troncones RV Park in Guerrero, north of Ixtapa, GPS coordinates: 17°46'37.7"N 101°43'04.5"W is open. It is not a mega-park, with only 3 spacious sites, so there is plenty of tranquility. New owners took over in 2015. Despite their questionable literary taste (they are, or used to be, fans of mine), they are probably very nice people. Troncones has more to offer than a beach, including lagoons with crocodiles and hundreds of species of birds. The ocean offers up sea turtles and whales.

Koala Bungalows and RV Park in Santa Maria del Oro, Nayarit is a marvelous place with friendly staff. Not only does it have RV and trailer camping, but tent camping is welcome. There are also inexpensive (but very nice bungalows for non-RV'ers.

Cruz Maria RV Park in Lo de Marcos, NAY is a very nice, well-kept small park with 13 spaces with full hookups  for rigs up to 42'. Tropical setting. Has beach houses and RV storage. Staff is bilingual. For reservations or more information, please contact David Jones at: El Paso, TX Office : 915-249-7951 or 915-892-5447. Email : [email protected]

Chiapas & Oaxaca

Hogar Infantil - in Ocozocoautla, Chiapas is not technically an RV park. It is an orphanage with 4 back-in spaces with EW. There is plenty of space for boondockers or caravans to park at their soccer field. They are just outside the town of Ocozocoautla, 21 miles from Tuxtla Gutierrez. See their website for details. Payment is not accepted, but volunteering, gifts for the children and online donations are. GPS coordinates:: N 16* 46' 37.0", W 093* 23' 01.5".

Oaxaca, Oax. - The Oaxaca Campground is now a members only park.
