    After staying at the Lotus Belle at the Reeds and getting to know the hosts, Deadra and Zen, we couldn’t say no to helping them test out their new listing for RV and self-contained hipcampers - Mexican Sunsets through the Reeds. Additionally, it gave us a chance to see more of this border town. The property sits on the Rio Grande with access to a creek and a small island, and, most importantly, breathtaking views of Mexico. As the property is actually on the Mexican border, be aware that border patrol may drive by several times a day. Feel free to reach out to the hosts should you, or the BP, have questions.

    The hosts have built a pull-through driveway, which is perfect for small RVs, 5th wheels, and van/bus campers. Since the driveway is at street level, you can enjoy sunsets every evening with nothing to block your view, and star-filled skies every night from anywhere. There is a bit of ambient light coming from Mexico across the river, but it never impeded our stargazing. Considering the property, as well as the surrounding land, is covered in very flammable reeds, fires are not allowed at this time. In the future, the hosts hope to build a permanent fire pit that will be safe for the land. A few minutes drive up the road is direct access to the Rio Grande, where during the warmer months you can enjoy swimming and floating down the river.

    At Mexican Sunsets through the Reeds you’re only 20 minutes from the downtown area. A definite must do activity in Del Rio is walking along San Felipe Creek. With its clear blue, spring-fed water and waterfalls, this hidden gem is unlike any city park you’ve seen before. Keep an eye out for beautiful murals under some of the bridges. If you’re interested in some really good BBQ, ask around about Rad Dawg’s Grill - a tasty, homecooked, family-run food truck just on the edge of town. Trust us, it’s worth the stop if you’re a meat eater. And if you’re more interested in making your own homecooked meals, swing by the Del Rio Farmers Market on the 3rd Saturday every month at the Community Garden.

    Just outside of town going west on US-90 is the Amistad National Recreation Area, which is filled with scenic views and places to camp or just hang out for the day. Governors Landing alone is worth the 25-minute trip out of town.

    Deadra and Zen are open to all walks of life and all kinds of people, and plan to host hipcampers whether they are on the property or not. While their other listings are mostly available while they are on the property, Mexican Sunsets through the Reeds is ideal for hipcampers who are self-contained. There is no potable water, no trash receptacle, and hipcampers are required to pack it out. In the future the hosts plan to add a composting toilet on the property for hipcampers.

    Directions provided by the hosts are straightforward and simple to follow; and although Google Maps provides somewhat accurate directions, it leads you to a location a few lots past their property. We would encourage anyone looking to disconnect from devices (there is very little service) and reconnect to nature and their deeper selves to visit Mexican Sunsets through the Reeds. We've already returned once, so you know we'll be back :)

    Cheers,
    Niki, Lil, and Starla 💫

    We are so glad Team Starla stayed with us again. As before, they were a great resource in making suggestions for the sites to be what we hope to share in the future. Zen and I wish Niki and Lil much love and light... as they travel and discover the world wide in Starla.
