CocoAventura Resort (formerly El Rey RV Park)

CocoAventura CabañasEl Rey, Anton Lizardo, Veracruz RV Park

As of late 2018, I am not sure the resort is taking RV's. The El Rey RV Park closed, but the same people own the hotel CocoAventura, just next door take tent campers, yes. RV's - maybe. CocoAventuras GPS coordinates are: N 19 3 20.7, W 96 0 47.4. The old Mocambo hotel used to offer RV parking but not anymore. Do not stop there. Some people will take your money and then you will be run off by the police. The CocoAventuras is down the road half an hour in Anton Lizardo, past Boca del Rio (with the best seafood in Mexico IMO). CocoAventuras web site is here. The CocoAventura is very pet-friendly, has spaces for tent camping and a hotel / resort. Very nice place, you should stay there for a few days and see a lesser-known part of Mexico. But do call first to confirm they take RV's.

CocoAventuras hotel / El Rey RV park

The El Rey RV / Trailer park in Anton Lizardo, Veracruz is at KM 10.5 Boca del Rio - Anton Lazaro Road (3 Km before arriving to Antón Lizardo Village). The El Rey RV park is about 15-20 minutes from Veracruz city. El Rey is one of the nicest Mexican RV parks on the Gulf Coast of Mexico. El Rey is 25.6 Km from Veracruz downtown. The road is pretty much divided 4-6 lanes from Boca del Rio to Antón Lizardo, its called “the new Veracruz Riviera” where the major residential developments are being built. Boca del Rio is well-known for having the best seafood in Mexico - even better than Veracruz itself.


The owner Jose Barraza operated the El Rey RV Park for 6 years and it was a truly nice-looking RV park with all the facilities and much, much more. There is a rainforest and ecological reserve nearby where you can go to see nature. There are tours, activities and things you don't normally find at an RV park. Please see their web site for yourself. GPS info: 19.054041, -96.02289. And the owner is a pet lover, so that makes him a good guy in my opinion. On the left is "Lady" the mascot of the two locations.

The same owner also have an eco-tourism natural attraction location with cabins set between a beach and a tropical forest. They have all sorts of activities for kids as well as diving and rafting.
