March 9th, 2015 Las Palmas Midway Inn & Trailer Park

Waiters in bow ties, mini golf, and a big neon sign. A quirky throwback stop. Parking area is pretty basic, and the prices are on the high end ($360 for parking/camping and ~$900 for a room), but there is something charming about it. Also, there is a pool.

March 6th, 2015 Malintzi Centro Vacacional

Tried to camp for free in a lovely, well trodden spot outside the main cabaƱa/ camping area. Main camping area seemed nice, built out, but parking lot was a bit too far from tent area for our liking. Then the police came and told us isn't wasn't safe and that we should go back to the main area. Oh well. The drive through the park is great. 10,000ft!

March 5th, 2015 Hierve el Agua

There is large, ungainly, partially finished palapa that has lot's of bird poop in it. Better to stay outside. That said, they do have running water in them. We pulled around the right of the Palapas for some wind shelter and great views. Cost for two people, including two entrance fee, camping and a toll in the town before: $150 p. Hierve is beautiful.

February 9th, 2015 Isla de Piedra

There are many little Palapas and restaurants and families living along the beach. We just parked and asked a local if there was any place we could pitch a tent for a night. He led us to his place and let us camp free for a couple nights. It's about a 40 min drive from Mazatlan (or a five minute ferry). Great swimming. Town also boasts a pretty cool botanical garden.

February 2nd, 2015 Punta Baja

Beautiful camping at the edge. A little fishing village down a rough road from El Rosario. Take a right off the 1 in Rosario when it turns a hard left. Go straight and then make another left a little ways down the dirt road. Follow the signs to Punta Baja. It's about 10 miles on the dirt road until you reach the town and then a small point. Eat a meal at Don Chuy's house/restaurant. Both Chuy and his wife, Beti, are great. Free to camp.
