Isla Aguada to Campeche

This morning I felt much more ready to travel than I did yesterday. We hit the road at 10:00 and followed the Gulf of Mexico to Campeche’s Club Nautico RV park. It was about three hours of slow paced driving on narrow secondary roads. We made one little unplanned detour through a small beach front fishing village but ran into no problem. We found a great little seaside restaurant where they were happy to pull out the breakfast menus even though it was actually lunch time. This is very common in Mexico, unlike in the States where you cannot order breakfast at 11:02 AM.

Club Nautico is a private tennis club with a beautiful infinity swimming pool and beach. There is a gate and guardhouse at the entrance where we paid for three nights. We parked in the same space we parked in two years ago and set up the dish. It took a while but we have all the standard definition channels but no high definition channels. I would be curious to hear if anyone is getting the HD channels at these latitudes (even with the larger dish).

We drove the ten KM or so into Campeche for dinner and stopped at the group of six or seven palapa roofed restaurants at the far east end of the malacon. The waiters are very aggressive in trying to get you into their place but we resisted until we found the right combination of white tablecloths, live music and menu. Norma ordered Paella Mariscos and I had Pescado Veracruzana. It was probably the best meal I have had so far in Mexico this year! Norma really enjoyed hers as well and actually ate 3/4 of it. It was that good and for only $280 pesos with beer and wine. It was dark when we got home. The end of a great day.



  1. Hi Croft. We are only at Puerto Penasco so no where near as South as you and are getting all regular channels but cannot get all of the HD channels. I'm just using the eliptical dish and have no idea why some HD and not others. Sure love this HDPVR and so far no more difficult to set up than our old receiver.

  2. Yay for lots of updates with pictures. :)

    I have been to some places in the States where you can't get breakfast past 10:30!

  3. Love the photos. Makes me happy to see you both having such a great time.

  4. excellent pictures :) ditto on what Contessa said :) enjoy
