Museum and community Centre

This spot is as described. The museum has lots of interesting information about the area and lots of brochures for other nearby attractions.
The spot is great if you like walking as there is a really cool local walking tour you can easily do from the museum, they have a guide.


A great place to stop, gas, food, wifi, picnic area and dump station conveniently located just off the 400 highway south of Barrie.
Not far from here is a Cabella’s and they allow overnight camping on their parking lot. There is shopping and lots of food choices there.

Freeway Tavern

What a gem of a place to stop for an inexpensive meal and a beer 🍻. Just off the highway, doesn’t look like much, but don’t let its looks fool you. We had a fabulous meal of chicken and chips with beer for $23. Fast, friendly service, highly recommended.

Lathrop State Park (Walsenburg)

Tried to stay, but by reservation only, either on line or in person. The rates are considerably higher than in 2016, $36 for a non-electrical site. The non-electric sites are a fair way from the powered sites. It does look nice and was t dull, but no reservation😳.

Restaurante Palmitos

Newly opened establishment, locally sourced food and excellent flavours! Run by a mother and son team, Lennie and Tia. Walking distance from either campground down the road. Very clean and fast service.

Casa Blanca Hotel, Restaurant and Bar

Lovely property with good restaurant, bar and rooms available. Big yard for campers, please inquire in restaurant about camping, but you should be self contained. We had dinner and breakfast. Service was very good. Food was good value and good portions.

Texaco Station

Great gas station with hotel, tienda, car wash and restaurant. Food in the restaurant is very good and service is fast and pleasant.
We asked the armed attendant at the gas bar if we could park the night and he directed us to a spot. There was some night noise, but not continual. It is close to the road, but we were safe and never felt anything but safe.

Captain Hooks Shrimp Restaurant

A fabulous restaurant situated among the shrimp ponds just outside Belize City. We had a fantastic meal, curried shrimp for one of us and coconut shrimp with mango chutney which was to die for. Lovely view of the area, a greatgvcr t FTF r txt r breeze to cool you down and outstanding staff. They also have a swimming pool, which is open on weekends.

Crooked Tree Lodge

Great location for a quiet night, lots of birds in the water and in the trees.
Mick the owner has a great setup, nice cabins and grounds for campers.
Mick does great meals, but you need to book ahead for dinner, which we did and had a fabulous meal. Internet was great in the parking lot where we stayed.
20BD a night

Agua Y Hielo

Not many places in Cancun to get water to fill the tank with a hose, but this is one we found. You can also buy ice here.

El Balneario Chiquilá

Stayed the night, was a great spot and night lights of the town were beautiful. For a out of town area, extremely clean and no noise at night. Clean because it is owned by the city and they pick up the garbage and quiet as it is patrolled hourly by the local police.
We found out the restaurant is also owned by the city, ate they, as we do if planning to stay the night in the parking lot. Tried to order beer, but none to be had, seems their liquor license has expired and not sure when or if they will get a new one. Got our own beer. Ordered chevicie, was extreme disappointed ☹️, the small that I ordered was barely noticeable on the plate, I suggested to the waiter there should be more, but not according to him. Paid the bill, 140 MP for the small chevicie, which I always order and is usually 80-100 MP.....gave him 200 and he brought back change of 40! So I asked for the rest of my change and he seemed put out! I would recommend the restaurant.
Bathrooms were left open all night, very clean, brand new I was told, still no toilet seats though.

Lavanderia Splash

Great place for laundry, wash, dry and fold with same day service. 14 MP a kilo, so very reasonable.

Gaby’s/Villa Del Mar

Great spot at the end of the street, Gaby’s on the left Villa Del Mar on the right. We ate at Gaby’s. The fried fish and ceviche were fantastic. Asked if it was ok to camp for the night and they said yes. The beach is impeccably clean and cleaned by the restaurant owners. Very quiet at night even though the pier is only steps away. NO loud music and no roosters in the morning.
Great cell reception, but no wifi.

Lavanderia Alesandra

Wonderfully clean laundromat, do it yourself or drop off services. Drop off service is 12 MP a kilo, otherwise 35 MP wash and dry.
Open Monday to Saturday 8-8, Sundays 9-2, closed on holidays.

Luisa and Daves Poolside Casa w Nature tours

This is the correct location for Luisa and Dave’s, not the other location, the corner of Calle 21 and 42.
Dave offers flat driveway parking for up to 3 small to medium rigs, tents can be pitched in the yard or on the driveway. There is a bathroom with shower for campers, electricity, non-potable water and great wifi. There is also a very large yard where large Rv s can park . It has a private access to this yard. He also has one to two rentable rooms with double beds in each room and private bathrooms.

Grutas de X'Tacumbilzuna'an

Arrived after the gates were closed for the night, so decided to park to the side of the road on the bike path. We are fully self contained. It was a full moon so the sky was well lit. The gates weren’t open until 10 am on the Saturday morning. After paying the entrance fee the kind gentleman offered us headlights and proceeded to give us a guided tour. Well worth the time spent.

Ruine Edzna

Visited here and had to pay 60 MP per person. If you keep to the left of the visitor centre building to the right you can most probably enter for free. Wifi was not working when we visited, but a worthwhile stop on the libre to Merida.

Walmart Campeche

We stayed one night with the blessing of Walmart security, too bad they forgot to mention the over the top loud bar that started up about 10pm and partied on until 3:30 in the morning, that was a Wednesday, I’m sure weekends are worse.

Commercial parking lot

Moved over here from the Walmart, a great spot with lovely lot attendants. Paid 100 MP for the night. Even with all the Christmas festivities going on all was quiet be 11 pm. A quick walk to the malacon or into the old walled city for restaurants shopping and sightseeing. All night security was peace of mind.

Restaurante MAR Y CRUZ

Had a great dinner here, Dary our host and waiter was fantastic, made happy hour for us. We stayed the night as camping was included with dinner. The beach is fantastic and nobody was on it. The facilities are a little sparse, but if you are fully contained unit a great lace to stop for a few days. We would have stayed but Dary told us there would be a 15 year old party the next day 😲🤪.

Escudo Jaguar

Nice place to stay before going up the river to see the ruins. Camping is nothing special, but close to the boats in the morning. We were 4 Overlanders and we were able to negotiate 1000 MP for all four of us up to the ruins. Make sure to also purchase your ticket to the ruins across the street from the hotel.
We had dinner and breakfast at the hotel restaurant and were not asked to pay for camping. The ride up the river was cool in the morning, so you might want to take a jacket. These ruins are not to be missed.

Parking lot of Coppel/Chedraui

Quiet and safe place to park for a night, park on the far side of Coppel, parking lot lights are turned off at night, but still enough light from the street. A quick walk to the town centre.

Dirt Busters, inside the Chedraui

Great place for full service or do it yourself laundry. They accept Visa and MC, open from 9 am to 9 pm.

Hotel restaurante la isla bonita

We stayed here 5 nights, it was a great safe spot on the beach. We had meals from the restaurant, they make a great fish soup. Enjoyed beer with some of the locals and were treated very well. When we inquired about a car wash, Mary the owner had one of her locals wash our rig, took some time, but they did a fantastic job.
Mary is the owner/operator and speaks a little English, but is very helpful and accommodating.
This location is just half a block from the Main Street, so shopping is readily available along with dinning options if you want.
We paid 100 MP per night which was fair. The Banos in the yard are less then desirable , but there are other facilities in the hotel lobby, you just need to ask. A great place on the beach if you have your own bathroom facilities.

BG Energie Tecnologias Alternas

We were in need of a large amp fuse and not able to find it anywhere else, we got Miguel’s name from another business and in less than 24 hours he was able to source our fuse and have it for pick up, but he was also prepared to ship it to us in another part of Mexico. Very helpful and resourceful and speaks perfect English.
Phone number (33)39689805

Physical address is 247 Ave Miguel Angel

Home Depot

Very helpful staff at this location. We had electrical issues and the staff pointed us in the direction of other stores with a bigger variety of supplies. They also allowed us to park while shopping next door at Soriana.
They have some camping/outdoor supplies.

Agua Caliente

Spent two nights here, it was ok, like many formal camp grounds in MX in need of TLC. We were charged 250 a night for dry camping, may also have been cheaper due to low season.
We were safe and able to walk to the town for dinner and supplies.

Purificadora H2O

Easy place to find, not sure the operator had a hose, but we carry an extra long one just in case. Very friendly and eager to help.

playa piedra pintas

A very nice beach to spend a few days to catch your breath and reorganize. Go the the far left as you drive in as main beach area is very dirty. Be aware of glass buried in the sand. Great for swimming and snorkeling.

Rainbow Laundry

Wonderfully clean laundromat, machines all clean and in working order. They offer do it your self or wash and fold service. Various sized machines and very reasonably priced. Attendant on site to help and make change.
