Overnight

Camp Pedro– big pull thru sites this is a perfect place to stop along your route

South of the Border Motor Inn– With a indoor heated pool and an outdoor pool and a Mexican themed hotel. Sounds perfect and the price is right.

With so much to do in this small area this is a must do. If it fits to stay overnight you could stay at this little resort type town and have all the fun you want or if your just passing thru you can fill up on gas take a couple pictures and move on. Either way if you are driving by, South of the Border is worth a stop!
