Agua Dulce appeared to be not much more than a stop on the way home. The campground is ok, but they ask too much money for it. They initially asked for 300 pesos, we were going to leave so they dropped it down to 250 pesos. We decided to stay, not because 250 pesos was a good price, but because we really didn't want to drive any further. We were both very tired and our bodies need a rest.
The last update on the Rolling Homes website was from John Kobak a couple of years ago. He had said they were charging 250 pesos, water was not working in the bathrooms, the electricity was only available for a few sites and there was an alligator in the pool.The bathrooms are now working with hot water, there are still only a few outlets for electricity, and the alligator is no longer in the swimming pool. The swimming pool is full of very dirty water, and I think they are using it for a water hole for the cows that roam freely in and around the campground.
It is however more than just a stop on the way home. The nearby town of La Venta houses an Olmec archaeological site of the same name that is well worth the trip. It is thought that the big hill here is the first major pyramid ever built in the Americas. Much of the site has been destroyed to to oil extraction in the 60's.

Walking through the field I was uneasy thinking of snakes,so I was on top alert. Sure enough I saw one! Is that a coral snake?
I don't know what kind of bird this is, but they had us entertained for some time. They were either bringing back food, or bringing back materials for the nests. It was very hard to tell. The tree had dozens of nests hanging from it.
