Oaxaca, Mexico. Part III (3/3)

Lagunas de Chacahua National Park
We tried to get away for a day to Lagunas de Chacahua National Park. American nature lovers beware (!) – a Mexican National Park does not equal an American National Park. In fact, it’s as far away from it as you can imagine.

The Roads, Cars & Driving
We wanted to see the area, the nature and also to drive out to Puerto Escondido, so we rented a car. This process was full of frustration.
Renting a car in Mexico is something that you have to research beforehand. Mexico has an obligatory requirement…

Continuing straight East, the road was taking us through Arkansas. The first night we found a pretty spot right on Arkansas river, in Ridge River Campground which was free. The park area was quite beautiful.

Somewhere in Northern Texas
We found an official free campsite on Lake Meredith, which was a rare occurrence. Moreover, that…

Disappointments started rolling in when we…
