What I liked about El campo is that the town is very small. It is a small community and everyone knows each other. The school is also a big part on why I enjoy living here.I used to live in a larger city and I did not enjoy it because it was so over populated and had so much crime around it. This place is much safer for my family and i in so many ways. I can leave the house anytime of the days ad know it is a safe place to be. There are ops out all the time making sure everyone is secure.
