El Cardonal

I spent the last couple of days of Semana Santa camping at El Cardonal Hide-a-way, a quiet little campground right on the beach. Eddie the owner has a restaurant on location and is an excellent chef so I ate very well during my stay at El Cardonal. I spent two days here and met local people and people visiting from mainland Mexico, California and Canada. Frequently on my trip, I found that Mexican kids were the best Spanish teachers. Veronica, the campground owner's 12-year-old daughter was no exception, as she is fluent in both Spanish and English and was an obliging and charitable coach. She did a great job containing her laughter at my futile attempts to speak her native language.
