The Club Nautico RV Park just West of Campeche has fifty amp service! There is a standard RV type 30 amp connector and a separate 20 amp grounded outlet in the pedestal. Most Mexican RV Parks that boast “30 amp service” have simply placed a regular household grounded outlet on their 30 amp cable. This requires the use of a 15 / 30 amp adaptor which usually heats up almost to the melting point if you use your air conditioning extensively.
With the setup in this park, I can run my ten gauge extension cord from the 20 amp outlet, through the front door of the motorhome where I connect the TV, DVD, VCR, StarChoice, computer, external hard drive and our myriad of battery chargers (cell phones, walkie-talkies, cameras) to that circuit, leaving the 30 amp service available for the rest of the motorhome. This means we can actually run the AC, microwave and coffee maker all at the same time! The fridge can also be switched to electric instead of being left on propane. Only those of you who have RV’d in Mexico will appreciate the luxury of this (properly wired to boot!) arrangement.
The clubhouse has very clean showers with tons of hot water and a steam room to boot. We may just move in here for good! Even at the full daily rate of $250 Pesos per day it would cost less than $700 CAN per month for full hookups (electric, water & sewer), gate security, private beach, pool, WIFI, exercise room and steam room! I am sure a much better monthly rate could be negotiated. Being right on the Gulf, it would be nice and cool here in the summer as well.
All is not perfect however. The slow WIFI needs some serious work and the water pressure is typical for Mexico – almost nonexistent, forcing us to keep refilling the holding tank and using the water pump.
