North to Puerto Vallarta

From Melaque we drove north to Puerto Vallarta, a distance of 140 miles (226 km)

Ecocamping Servicios

We had heard that there was a new campground underconstruction inland from La Manzanilla and stopped to take a look. It was easy to find since there was a sign on Mex 15 near the entrance road to La Manzanilla. The place is called Ecocamping Servicios and is in the small village of Los Ingenios. See our Mexico Updates page for more about the park.

Puerto Vallarta

In Puerto Vallarta we picked Tachos for our campground. We found it about 80% full. Pretty good since this is the first year that the RV dealer from Quebec hasn't reserved a large number of sites.

Lo De Marcos

A short drive north of Puerto Vallarta is another world. Little Lo De Marcos is a quiet spot that only RVers seem to know about.
