Getting out of this resort town before the spring breakers arrive in full force. But there is a huge contingen of RV’ers.
There are 3 parks for camping.
Isla Blanca on south side of island, which is a beach w 10 daily access fee. But has 300 plus RV spots. A few tent camping spots (15/night). But it looks like the occupancy rate is pretty high.
Andy Bowie park to north, which a few spots for RV and (15/night and maybe 10/day park fee).
Koa which is right next to isla Blanca on its own pier. It’s a private site, but more amenities than the other two, but more expensive. Worth the cost for a weekend. Pool. Hottub. Clean bathroom, showers. Rec room w ac. Camp site is (50/night) w power and water hookup. RV spots too.
Besides the two parks mentioned, there is the public beach on the gulf side. There is a few parking spots in the streets, w beach access paths hidden between the hotel resorts.
The sea turtle, inc is a rescue. I dunno if they are a non-profit. But it feels good throwing a few dollars at a place taking care of a few of these guys, for a few months. One of these guys keeps mooning me, though, then coming up to look for my reaction. And some get pretty big.
Wifi is available in most places: Koa, Dulce Roma,
There is beach shops everywhere, targeting $10 price point.
In short, it’s a nice place to be. I can see why people come here.
