“Build it and they will come.” Well, we will see about that!
So we have started down the path to an new kind of adventure. We have been disappointed in the lack of RV parks anywhere south of Melaque, and Barra de Navidad along the Pacific Coast of Mexico. Those cities are, at the least, a 5 hour drive in the motorhome from Ajijic, where we live. At somewhere around three hours, and almost totally four lane highway, is the quaint and cute little beach village of Cuyutlán. In the 1940’s it was a major beach destination for Guadalajara, as the train ran here daily.
We have found a location for a RV Park, right on the beach, and right in town. Two blocks from restaurants, hotels, and lots of cute little beach front restaurants. They call them “puestos”.
There is no “fine dining” here. This is just a sleepy little beach front village. Very laid back. If you want a tourist destination, then head towards Puerto Vallarta. If you want to chill out on the beach, enjoy the sound of the surf, and a cold beverage, in a village of very friendly and welcoming people, with no high pressure time share salesmen, and no “barkers” on every corner trying to sell you a fishing trip, boat ride, parasail, etc. then come on down.
The beach here is “black sand” from volcanic rock. The Colima volcano is just a few miles from here.
Cuyutlán is also a major sea salt production area. Originally salt was used by the Spanish in the silver mines to refine the silver. Today the sea salt is available for a very low price, and is chock full of natural minerals from the sea, and we think that it is very healthy for you. Be sure to pick up at least one bag while you are here, and I bet you will want to stock up before you leave.
