El Chaco RV Park and San Blas

It is cloudy and warm and muggy here in Aticama – hopefully it will rain and get it over with. We haven’t done to much but go into San Blas a couple of times to eat. And just hide out from the humidity. (if there are a lot of typing errors please forgive them - the tape over my broken fingernail finger keeps doing its own thing.) Living in paradise - Bill just asked what day it was and I had to look on the computer to figure it out!
Here is part of the road heading into San Blas. Lots of vegetation around here. Tropical and other wise.
The street leading into San Blas – last time we were here a couple of years ago it was more pothole than pavement. Since then it has been paved. Bill says it's no fun to drive any more - he can't zig zag all over the street. 
The arch leading into the main street of town – the street we drove down in 1978 in the motorhome. There wasn’t near as much town then. – read all about it in our book  All The Way to Argentina! Plug done.
Last time we were here a couple of years ago there was a lot of work going on in town. The arch is newly painted and the street newly paved.
All the wiring on this street was put underground. And ALL the buildings were refaced and painted. Kind of strange that they are all white though. I like the old fashioned street lights.
I wonder if the town is trying to become a Pueblo Magico. One of the things with a Pueblo Magico is all the signs for the businesses have to be the same. And now all the signs are like this one.
Another longer view of the street and a better look at the street light. Neat huh?
More of the signs. Got to love it – the front of the buildings are painted but not the sides.
Stopped to walk around the main plaza – watched this Huichol man doing some beading.
Looking across at the old and new churches – side by side.
See the little lady – she is about 4 ½ feet tall and quite old. Ever since we’ve been coming here she and her equally old, small husband have set up their stand every night in the main plaza.
Lots of bicycle, scooter and pedestrian traffic in San Blas to watch out for.
This is really blurry but is something we see all the time – four people on this scooter.
This morning I took a walk around the campground and took some pictures. Here is the Alfa behind the jeep - lots of grass and flowers around this year. There are four of us here - one open space.
 Looking at the beach and the palapas - very cloudy sky - expecting rain later in day. 
 Part of the campground - all palm trees. 
An area of hammocks by the restaurant. Nice and shady.
 The pool area
 The restaurant
 Inside the restaurant
And in case anyone is wondering - no bug bites so far.
And that’s about it for this time. It is getting darker and darker out – but not cooler – ugh. Still don’t know what the campground is costing us as the owner is in the states and won’t be back until next week. Gotta love Mexico

  1. I was wondering about the bugs. Let us know the cost when you know. Love that pool shot.
