Eat This Campground!

View of the campground bath house and Mayto Beach…

Well, it’s really happening! We now have our sign up, and Camping Sol y Mar (Camping Sun & Sea – http://www.ranchosolymar.com) is finally launched. Situated 300 yards back from the gorgeous, pristine beach of Mayto, Mexico (state of Jalisco, 2 hours south of Puerto Vallarta) Camping Sol y Mar is to our knowledge, the world’s first 100% off grid campground with solar powered RV hookup sites. And yet another first, thanks to the new herb spiral created by Katy & Alex, Camping Sol y Mar is also now the world’s first “edible campground”. That in addition to the bananas, mangos, coco’s and other plantings, well on their way to fruity fruition. Oh, and did I mention the new clay pizza oven that Alex is working on? Getting hungry yet? well then there’s just one solution – come camp with us in Mayto this winter!
