Sun, Golf, Friends
Why would you go anywhere else?
This website is to share the seasonal adventures of Gary and Vicki Cox who have been spending winters in the Rio Grande Valley since retiring in 2000. Prior to retiring, we came to the park to visit friends who talked of a rural area, hidden among the palm trees, where the same group of people came year after year, to form a close family atmosphere where they could golf, gather for happy hours, cross easily into Mexico for shopping and fun, and spend weeks or months just enjoying being in the sun and relaxing. It is amazing how the common interests of people from all over the United States and Canada are drawn to and love the same things and have so much in common. It is truly a family. We never had any desire to go anywhere else. So for 15 years now, from Oct to March, we go South, almost to the Mexico border. and we want this site to show you why we do so.
The website has been online for 10 years and so this summer I am undertaking the task of updating it to reflext the changes in the park. An example: the residences which were once all motor homes, fifth wheels, and pull trailers but now, though there are sites available for those types of units, we have mostly permanent park models with Texas rooms, or screened areas, and updated amenities. We have changed with the times - but have managed to keep the small town family feeling, yet located within 10 miles of a huge outlet mall, every chain restaurant, retail store, as well as airports, and big city attractions. People still come through the park and comment that they had no idea we were located just outside of Mercedes.
While the site is being updated, you can check the Contact Me page for current information on units For Sale or Rent. The 2015-16 season is going to be an exciting time and plans are underway for a Dancing with the Stars and Mardi Gras events. The photo album has been updated with pictures of lots of other events that were fun last season. Check them out and see what you are missing.
Please contact Tommie Brixey, park owner, for specific information or brochures at LaFloresta@sbcglobal.net or 956-565-6314 and check back here soon for the new website.
