More Progress at Coconutz RV Park.

Posted by on February 23, 2015

I just wanted to get out a new update on recent progress at Coconutz RV Park.

We have brought in some fine gravel to help solidify the sandy areas where vehicle travel was a little on the “iffy” side.  This is a product that packs down well, and should help eliminate any problems driving into and around the park.

There are new concrete steps from the park onto the beach.

We built a gate out of locally cut palm wood pickets, which were cut to order right in Cuyutlán.  At the advice of the lumber yard, we then treated the palm wood with motor oil for a finish.  The color is a rich reddish brown.  I suspect that it will grey with age, and sun exposure.  We will see.

We also put the new gravel on the walkway to the beach gate.  This helps define where the path to the beach is.

In an effort to discourage foot traffic through the park and out to the beach, we have constructed a simple rail fence along the boundary lines  We have planted many new plants, including cannas and oleanders.

And while we have gotten rave reviews on the bathrooms and showers, we were not really happy with the hot water pressure, so we installed an “on demand” electric water pump on the hot water intake pipe to the water heater.  Now there is much better pressure, for an even more enjoyable hot shower in each of the bathrooms.

    You’ve both been very busy and productive, by the sound of it.. Lovely new plantings. Wondering if there’s a problem with the leafcutter ants down there because they love oleanders, ours here in Ajijic anyway! Must be getting quite hot down there. We’re busy enjoying the music festival, it’s been great. Take care, hugs…

    Looks good. Where are all the RVs? We’re enjoying the weather up here in Puerto Peñasco, our new home. Cooler and drier than Cuyutlán and, so far, not so many mosquitoes. Plus, being a mere 60 miles from the US border makes getting things we just can’t find locally pretty darn easy. Keep up the good work. See ya next trip south.

      That has been my question as well! Where are the RV’s? I hope the season is not already over this year.
      Maybe next year? We did have some folks from Vancouver Island that just drove down from where they were camping in their “toad” to check it out this week. We had two days of great ocean breezes, and then….. no mosquitos. I guess they were “blown away”
