|Cópec- fill up propane||
Filled up propane in our RV tank for cooking. Had the right hookup.
|Puno (Lake Titicaca)||
DANGEROUS- multiple robberies (passports, electronics, luggage) in tourist areas in mid-day; car break-ins as well. Beware of all of Puno, robbers know tourist activity schedules.
|Stealth Spot On The Malecon||
ROBBED IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DAY. don't stay here. Police reported it's a dangerous spot. They broke into our RV around lunchtime and took tech.
|B Hotel Nasca Suites||
No height restrictions, there's a pool, nice lot to park for the night. They helped book a flight for the nasca lines. But the road it's on is... whatever...
|Hostal casa Cino Fabiani||
This place is permanently closed.
|Backpacker Great Hostel||
Great place, lovely hosts. The wifi was a bit slow at times but that happens in Baños in general I've heard. It was a tight squeeze for our rv to get in/out but we slowly made it and are happy we did.
Breakfast included in the price. And a short walk to the center plaza & hot baths. Recommended.
|Parking at the entrance to the Grutas de la Paz||
Parking lot by restaurant, church and caves entrance. We found 3 free wifi signals. Quiet, clean. Playground for kids right by lot. Recommended.
We planned to stay for one night and stayed in Casa Blanca for 8 days. The campground is beautiful with lush grass and amazing views. The owners Guy and Nurit were extremely helpful with everything we needed and Guy even helped to fix couple of items in the RV.
Great Wifi, water connection and electric hookup. Very safe and close to Mediin. Highly recommended !
|Parking supermarket Rey||
Very loud well lit parking lot at an intersection. Open 24 hrs. McDonald's has wifi if you're inside (open till midnight).
Not a bad little hotel on the way through panama. Clean room, hot shower, ok wifi and a roomy parking lot (our 25 ft rv cleared it). Paid about 45$ for a room for the 4 of us (2 twin beds and 1 full)
A nice place to park the (25 ft) rv for the night. The lot is right by the road and you hear cars driving by but it's fine. The let us plug in and we paid 20$ for 4 people. There is a bar upstairs with a pool table and coffee/breakfast in the morning. We got the wifi password at the bar. Recommended for a bit of a more organized space close to Manuel Antonio.
Propane refill at gas station. Open 24 hrs. Maxi Pali supermarket very close as well.
|Casa Playa Sol y Arena||
Kind and friendly hosts of a small, simple hotel. Nothing's fancy; A/C, good wifi, pool, cable, cool shower and they offered us use of a roomy communal kitchen. Our 25 ft RV fit into their parking area which was locked for the night. We paid 50$ for two adults and two kids. Good enough stop for the night.
|Restaurante Turin - Camping & Jardines||
***update to below. We got stuck here during the most intense storms CR has seen in a while. This family was incredible in helping us during the storm (food, water, shelter) and took us with them to higher ground when the river nearby looked as if it were getting too high. Fabulous people!!
Friendly and helpful hosts. They run a restaurant with amazing food (especially the fish they get out of their ponds). They can book tours and provide lots of info. When we came there was so much rain so we didn't get to see the grounds. Bathroom and showers were offered but we didn't use them. No wifi. Tv on at the restaurant. Pricey considering there is no water or electrical hookup for our RV (8$ per adult and 4$ per kid). Buts it's quiet and we felt secure.
|San Juan del sur||
A parking lot at the end of the beach front street. Some simple restaurants that were mostly empty nearby. No amenities but the police truck was parked and open all day/night. Showers and bathrooms are available at the hostels next door for 10 Córdoba. There is also a bodega with the basics next door. This lot is right on the beach and quiet; about a 5 minute walk to the action. Recommended as we couldn't find places with secure parking lots here (i.e. We asked and they didn't want us to stay). Other overlanders landed here at the same time.
Parked in an informal lot ($10 for two people); quiet, shady and they ran a line for electricity from us. There is a restaurant, wifi, pool table, ping pong, paddle boards and kayaks...
|Villas vista Masaya plus camping||
Fabulous, quiet, beautiful views. Pool and very helpful hosts. Did our own laundry, water source and plug for electricity. The road to get there from town is a bit tough (bumpy, narrow, unpaved) but we made it with our 24 foot rv.
|Olas Clandestinas - restaurant||
We spent 1 night at this restaurant's grassy parking lot on the beach with our 25 foot RV. There are water points and a spot to plug in. Owner said he can happily accommodate 1 vehicle at a time (we provided a generous tip after eating a tasty fish dinner).
|Road to El Transito, Nica||
Bumpy and unpaved road, but doable (min potholes).
Nice, central, hotel with secure parking for our RV. They didn't let us stay in the RV (not even sure if they had anywhere to plug in) so we had to get a room (this town is $$). We searched high and low for other options (parking or sleeping in the RV) and there were none.
|Hotel Casa Real||
Nice secure little hotel with a friendly guard. We parked our rv (along with some other overlanders) for the night. The pool and wifi were great. We plugged in outside the rooms and filled up water from their hose. A great stop between border crossings. Cost us about 9$.
This property belongs to the la tortuga owner (tom). It's about a 10 min walk down the road. It has cold showers, bathrooms, 10 amp electricity and water (but not at organized sites). There's a tienda between la tortuga and rio mar with enough food/supplies. La tortuga has great activities, restaurant, pool, wifi etc. we stayed for several days and really enjoyed it.
Great family run spot a step from a quiet beach. Electricity available (run a line from their place) but it's not strong. They can give you water in a bucket. They were super helpful e.g. Bought us fish. Wild and nice. Shady, quiet. You can also walk down the beach to a restaurant.
|Pasaj cap - Lago Atitlan||
Great accommodations in a beautiful spot. Electricity at the spots with water hookup close by (they let us borrow an extra hose to reach the water). There are showers and sink for dishes (never used but look good), wifi, the boats for San Pedro stop at their private dock. They provide 5 gallons of water free and have frozen fish in stock. The space is beautifully landscaped and everyone is very helpful.
|Hotel Fuente Real||
Great hotel with attached restaurant (breakfast/lunch/dinner) and great wifi at hotel and restaurant. Hotel was very accommodating and let us stay at the nice lot with water and electricity. There is a small store across the street for basics and other restaurants you can walk to. It was quiet at night. Great overall.
*a family of 4 traveling around the world*
Nice 2 floor hotel with garden/yard they let us park our 25 foot Rv in. It looks new and was empty except for us. All was quiet, clean, great AC, wifi, TV/cable in the room. The only thing that went wrong for me was the barely warm water. They give coffee in the morning. We loved it on our way from Mexico to Guatemala.
**update- no hot water as the boiler wasn't on... just ask and they'll turn it on.

Fabulous hosts that give great tips and suggestions, quiet, great wifi, hot/clean shower, electric and water.
|Trailer Park Las Americas||
This was a grassy lot with plenty of space. Very well kept. A pool, 24 hr guard, hot showers, full hook up available (15 amps electric). Very quiet street and we were able to walk to the sites in cholula (30 min walk). 250 pesos/nt.
|Trailer Park Teotihuacan||
Nice location by town. Yes I can hear activity but I don't mind it.
