Almost Free RV Camping Caravan to Mexico Offered

New RV travelers to Mexico will now get a chance to drive with experienced rv’ers south of the border without spending thousands of dollars on the services of professional caravans.

La Penita, Nayarit, Mexico (PRWEB) April 15, 2006 — New RV travelers to Mexico will now get a chance to drive with experienced RV’ers south of the border without spending thousands of dollars on the services of professional caravans. Bill and Dorothy Bell who have extensively traveled to over 400 RV and camping locations throughout Mexico and have the largest web site on camping in Mexico will lead the caravan starting in late October of 2006 from Nogales Arizona to La Peñita Nayarit Mexico.

“Many first time road travelers to Mexico are a little nervous” says Dorothy Bell, “but with this Caravan, they will receive assistance on the proper documentation needed to cross the border plus they will receive an extensive four hour course on traveling in Mexico before they start.” Included is a Mexico On The Road In Camping directory CD and Highway 15 Road Log.

The caravan meets up on October 25th and leaves for San Carlos Sonora Mexico on the 26th where they will stay one night at the Hotel Cortez RV Park. Then it’s off to Huatambampo,Sonora where they will camp on the beach at the El Mirador RV park for 2 nights. Followed by two nights in Mazatlan. The final destination is the La Peñita RV Park.

La Penita is one of the best RV Parks in Mexico. It is one if not the most active parks in terms of events and activities. Situated on a bluff over overlooking the Pacific Ocean the views are considered magnificent.

Although the caravan portion of the trip is free, those wishing to participate must guarantee a month stay at the La Peñita RV Park and pay a $100 registration fee to pay for the course and course materials. The Caravan is limited to 30 Recreational Vehicles and is on a “first come basis.”

“Last year we had to turn away over 100 requests,” say Bell.

The RV Park is situated on a small hill and only a few hundred feet from the water’s edge. It has 110 full hookups as well as lots of tent spots. The resort boasts excellent drinking water at no additional cost and offers all the extras such as pool, wireless Internet and hot tub cable or satellite TV. Reasonably priced at $450 per month, It is open from November 1st to May 1st.

At La Penita there is a lot to love. The town of La Penita is on the Pacific, less than an hour drive from Puerto Vallarta and just North across the river from Rincon de Guayabitos. The weather is fantastic and the people lack the pretentious airs found at many resort communities.

RV travel is one of the fastest-growing recreational activities in North America and in Mexico RVers are discovering that they can realize the wonders of Mexico for a fraction of the cost of resorts. Camping is also a great alternative to hotels.

Bell and her family have been traveling by RV to Mexico since 1988, first making the trek in a Volkswagen Westphalia, then a 28-foot-trailer. Most recently they are currently traveling throughout Mexico in a 28 foot-foot class-C recreational vehicle.

“We have taken pictures and GPS readings of virtually every RV and camp site in Mexico and now people can look them up on the Internet by name or by clicking on the various maps that show where every site is located,” Bell said.

The Bell’s also produce th most extensive Road Logs for Driving in Mexico, including the Baja.

The web site also prepares the traveler to make travel in Mexico as enjoyable as it is in the rest of North America. It lists the requirements of documentation, insurance and driving tips, etc., as well as specific site and park recommendations.

The Bell’s write a bi-weekly Mexico travel column for RV Travel, the leading E-Newsletter on RVing in North America.
