Parque Natural Mexiquillo


Travel Day Interrupted

The plan was an early, cool 7:30 start, an easy 110 miles and lunch on the beach. Best laid plans and all that...  In Mexico, especially in the states of Chiapas and Oaxaca, citizens will protest by blocking the highway. The highway workers union had blocked the road ahead.

We came to a dead stop. Better in an RV than a car. I started the generator and turned on the AC and made the lunch I had planned for the beach.

 The protesters were focused on stopping commercial traffic and let passenger cars and luckily us through after one hour and fifty minutes.

There was a continuous stream of bus passengers from the other side of the blockade walking past. I don't know where they were going.

The blockade. We are through.

Buses on the other side. How long they remained there I do not know. It could have been hours.

 We are at Casa Rayo de Sol Campground, 17.412178, -101.182262. It a small very nice campground run by a wonderful Canadian couple. Mark's father bought the property back in the 50s. A hurricane demolished the buildings in 2013. Ever since Mark and his wife Lorrine have been transforming the property into a great campground.

Watching the sunset

Another great day on the road.
