Gracias Queretaro - What a Difference A State Makes

We never got anywhere in the Estado de Mexico with education officials, in fact, the most difficult state to ever work in.  We returned to the rv this morning and asked for an escort to the Arco Norte to Queretaro.   Our escort took us to the border with Tlaxcala and off we went leaving behind a bad memory.  I will be posting in Spanish in the next day or two to demonstrate my inconformity with the most corrupt state in the Republica Mexicana and I dare anyone from Edomex to post a comment or send me an email.

We arrived safely and with open arms to the state of Queretaro.  Doors opened automatically and the wonderful people of Queretaro welcomed us and invited us into their city.  We chose the Hotel Flamingo Inn which is listed on OnTheRoadIn, a website by Bill and Dot.  Only change was an increase in price to 250 pesos a night.  The best part is that it is conveniently located in the center of the city and has room for motorhomes up to 40ft, toad not included.  There are only six sites but it includes the following;  electric and water, dump station, wi-fi, access to all hotel amenities including heated pool, showers, towels, soap and shampoo, gym, and restaurant.  We have a huge garden all to ourselves.  A bit expensive for us, but keep in mind their rooms start at 990 plus tax. 

Considering we already have an answer from the education department, and one that seems eager to help us, we are well-located and have a gym which I need on a daily basis.  So you figure two people at 20 pesos a day each just for the gym our price goes down to 210 pesos and it is right here on the grounds.  


  1. Looks like a nice spot with all the extras and right downtown. Good luck with the research project.

  2. For what you are getting 250 pesos is almost a bargain! What AMP of power, ??15!

  3. I'm assuming it is 15 to 20amp, but I will check with the gardner tomorrow. :)
