The Pueblo of Lo De Marcos is a small seaside village just North of Puerto Vallarta. It is mainly a tourist area now with many very reasonably priced seafood restaurants, street taco stands, small hotels and a couple of RV parks. In times past it was known for it’s palm oil production. These golf ball sized oil rich nuts can still be found along the beach.
The RV Park we are in is called El Refugio and is probably one of the nicest parks we have seen in Mexico. It has two pools, spotless showers and a beautiful beach area. On the other side of the coin, at $390 Pesos per night, it is also one of the most expensive we have encountered. Just outside the gate are most of the fine restaurants and taco stands. It is a Mexican Gem!

We decided to stay an extra day so I could watch the Grey Cup Game. Tomorrow we have to find our way through Puerto Vallarta on an elusive bypass road as the main street through town is too narrow and congested for a motorhome to pass.
