Club Nautica Palapa and Beach

Feb. 12-13 - Feb. 12th was a short drive day, from Isla Aguada to Campeche, where we stayed at Club Nautico. This drive was one of the nicest yet, because for most of it is right along the coast. There were lots of sea birds, and bright sunny skies. The further we traveled, the bluer the water seemed.

Club Nautico is the first RV Park where we have had actual 30 amp power, and it’s nice to be able to turn on the air conditioning. This park has tennis courts, a volleyball court, a fair little beach (but not with fabulous right on the beach camping like in Isla Aguada). It is located about 8-10 miles outside Campeche.

Feb. 13th - Toured one of the “Bastions” that protected the city from pirates in the early years. There are some fabulous artifacts displayed here, including ancient pottery in perfect condition, some ancient tools of war, and the contents of a couple of burial sites. Since Campeche is not a real tourist town, there are no English speaking guides, and all the explanations of the exhibits are in Spanish, making it difficult to fully understand the significance of each piece - but fabulous none-the-less.
