This park is inhabited by a returning crowd of Canadians who highly covet their tenure in this park. Spaces are allocated on seniority and length of stay. There is inadequate power but, if you don't miss air conditioning, you'll be fine. There is a social schedule here which will make even the busiest social butterfly dizzy. Many of the activities focus on fund-raising for different causes and it can start to feel like you are constantly reaching into your wallet. Lots of good causes but, when you are there for R & R, it is a little tiresome at times. Most people here were very kind but as an American, we are often told we can be rude. Let me tell you, that many of the repeat Canadians in this park can be extremely rude, curt and insulting. If you have thick skin, you will do fine here. Don't get me wrong, it is a paradisaic place but, those who regularly inhabit this place, know it. In one case, a new, younger couple who stayed in this park were "run out" due to having a nicer site than many of the older "established" folks. If you like a constant schedule of activities, a nice pool, beach and natural surroundings, you will love it. There are many, many folks in this park and they are all located very close together... keep your space and you will enjoy it. As for pricing, it is completely out of whack for not being a quality rv park. In the US, you could get a wonderful lot in Arizona or Texas for alot less $$$. The couple that run the park are very kind, considerate and helpful... they will bend over backwards to help you with anything you need. Look past the big attitudes of the yearly returning residents and you will be enjoy it! We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We consider this park our winter home, and spend four to six months there. The park is open from 1 November to 1 May. We have gone down for the 05/06 and 06/07 seasons, but missed 2008. We will return next year (2008/09). The park is a little rustic, but the people are great. There is water volleyball daily, hamburger night on Sunday, and taco Tuesdays. Only 15 amp electric service is available. The park has their own well and treats the water so it is safe to drink. The town of La Peñita de Jaltemba has several medium sized grocery stores and if your needs aren't met there, Puerto Vallarta is only 70 kilometers south. The beach is visible from some sites and is accessible from the park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We found this new place 1 week before coming here and we fell in love with the place. We have decided to stay here until the end of our trip in Mexico. The park is clean with a nice swimming pool very secure. Only a distance walk from the market stores restaurants and the beach. Never, was I afraid as a woman to walk alone in the neighborhood. I had the chance to meet many Mexicans around that were kind enough to help me practice my Spanish. Some sites even have their own shower and bathroom. Electricity is reliable. We shall come back for sure. We camped here in a Motorhome.
