We took our first RV trip in Mexico in January of 2009 in a 1999 Fleetwood Storm. It was 34 feet long. We crossed the border at Pharr, TX after many scary warnings from the Americans camped in the park in McAllen. We quickly managed to get lost in Matamoros and headed down the coast to one of Mexico's newest designated beach resorts, La Pesca. Fontour (Mexican Tourism) has it in their sights.

We drove a seriously under construction road about 20 miles from the main road to the beach town of La Pesca. A beautiful town on a beautiful beach with an amazing river meandering inland. We parked in a hotel/RV park. There was one other RV there. A gentleman from an RV club scoping out the place for caravan trips. Guess they will wait until that scary road is finished.

FOND MEMORIES OF LA PESCA
We stayed there two days, plugged into a simple 110 volt plug. It was chilly and we ventured out only to look around. The hotel was built by Americans and sold to Mexico when no one came...sad. La Pesca is about 200 miles from Brownsville, TX. I read the blogs of air friends who are currently traveling South of the Border and have tinges of jealousy for the many things (cosas) in MX that are marvelous, and the many things that are frustrating. Topes for example. You can follow a couple of our favorite blogs written by folks who are currently traveling in Mexico.. www.travelwithkevinandruth.com Also www.abuelolovo.blogspot.com I know there are many others. We also faithfully follow www.vagabonders-supreme.net That is Goerge and Ms Tioga. He has many followers and really loves Mexico.
