Last stop before our home base in Lo De Marcos January 18-20, 2023

Heading to Rancho B in La Placita, Michoacán, Mexico 🇲🇽🌴

Our campground in Ixtapa before Larry hitched the trailer up. This place was right on the beach with a pool. The bathroom and showers were a bit yucky though.

Someone’s pig taking a walk on Highway 200.

Colorful town sign along the way.

Our beach in La Placita…. No one to be seen!

This reminded me of the Camino de Santiago.

Black sand

It was Larry’s lucky day! He found 7 sand dollars.

At the south end of the beach, they had these crazy rock formations. I suspect they are lava flows from thousands of years ago.

I found these brilliantly colored rocks.

Deserted and all ours!

Love this!❤️

Me jogging the beach.

This was my favorite rock.

We went into town to see what they had to offer. It was a small village with not much to see.

The river that flows to the ocean in the rainy season.

Volleyball but no one around.

We stopped for a snack by the Pemex station and made a friend! I fed him tortillas and he loved them.

Larry even petted him!

Such a cutie!!!

Then later that day, I found this guy in the trailer bathroom!!! I wasn’t that excited 😩

This is Ranch B RV park which has the best bathrooms and showers on the coast!

Lovely and books too!

This is the common area. Sandy will make pizzas on request here on Sunday nights. Unfortunately we were here Wednesday and Thursday nights. 🥲

It’s beautiful here!

This is the short trail down to our deserted beach.

The wonderful showers.

He even has a papaya tree!! Yum!

Last sunset.

All ready to go. The last big push to Lo De Marcos. It’s going to be at least 8 hours of driving.

There was a road block at the border between Michoacán and Jalisco states. We waited 30 minutes and we were let through. Folks were demanding that some missing activists be located and were blocking the only road to force the government into action. They only blocked one lane of traffic but it definitely had an impact.

It looks like a huge cactus is growing out the top of the truck!

We are getting close.

See the cruise ship in the middle of the road…. Not really. This is in Puerto Vallarta.

Here’s Larry after parking the trailer. It was a very long day but we got to Lo de Marcos by 5:30pm.

The best thing was our friend Deb and her boyfriend Matt brought us pizza and beer shortly after we arrived!!🍕🍕🍺🍺🍺

I am curious about how you went? Straight up the 200? If so did you find an easy way through or around PV?

Replying to

Larry found the right street behind the main 200 that goes through two tunnel.
