Got here while driving O5. 2 mtrs down washed away. Tried to make a ramp for 2 hours but too risky so had to turn around. can't believe no one put a warning here. So for now we think the O5 is impossible to drive

Huge parking lot at Walmart. If you park close to University Dr, nobody was there. A bit noisy from the street, not so much at night. Didn't ask permission at Walmart as I normally do and didn't get a knock on the door in the middle of the night.

Very close to town, but LOUD music next door till around 2:00am (there is a club). It's 20 pesos parking per hour till 8 pm, plus 150 pesos for the night. Gate closes at 8 so you have to be there before eight.

we arrived in Tequila on Sunday and it was PACKED. Navigating trough the small streets and crowds of people was a bit stressful after a long drive. The entrance was TIGHT with our camper truck and cars parked in the street making the corner more tight.

Beautiful lake and green nature around. Lots of cool birds if you look for them! In the weekend crowds from Guadalajara come to camp and party, we found them all very nice!

You are not allowed to park next to the lake (only tents can). Instead you have to park in the back of the campsite. Price for 2 persons is 300 pesos per night. Cold showers and restaurant (didn't try).

I can only confirm: food prices at the restaurants are too expensive for what you get. I just had lunch here and I cannot recommend. Atmosphere is really nice though and great for a break. Did not stay over night.

Camping maravilhoso! Estrutura rústica, mas muito bem organizada. Lugar o lindo em meio à Mata Atlântica com cachoeira e piscinas naturais. É necessário agendamento para pernoitar. Os donos são pessoas incríveis, cheios de histórias para contar por horas em frete uma fogueira! Preço por pessoa R$50,00 por noite. Vale muito a pena! O GPS vai marca localização errada, mas siga em frete na estrada que logo aparecerão placas de localização, quando chegar na igrejinha, siga a estrada a direita e que dará na porteira do Ecco Park.

Official campsite, but still in the process of being built. They have a kitchen, bar, fire pit - even chalets. However, it is not officially open so it wasn’t fully operational during our stay.

No running water yet, only from a hand pump & bucket nearby. They put a bucket by the toilet for us to flush (everything was clean).

There is electricity, but not at the campsites. Only at the common areas. They even provided firewood for us.

The manager was very friendly, and gave us a tour. Hopefully the place will be finished soon - they have some really cool ideas.

No fixed price for camping, so it depends on your negotiating skills. Expect anywhere between MT500-1,000.

You can still hear some hustle and bustle from the town, but not too much. Probably the best (and only) campsite in Lichinga that we could find.

The Google maps directions are wrong - follow the trail on iOverlander or Tracks4Africa. Both take you to the right place.

Bruno is the manager and speaks good english.

Large parking lot with plenty of space! Pretty quiet throughout the night and a small view of the ocean! 1-2 bars Verizon (not very reliable).

Easy access street where you can park easily as well (29 feet RV). A bit noisy il the evening and morning due to the avenue but calm in the night. We stayed 3 nights and felt safe. Walmart express and Soriana are very close. 10 min with a taxi to the centre.

Lots of spaces here- some in full view, but some that are tucked away and hidden. Some trash, clearly well used sites. Good Entel signal. At 4am (on a Monday) a group of cars drove to the adjoining road and blasted music for 10 minutes before driving off. (Not with car stereos, but with full-on, high volume, high bass sound systems- at least their choice of music was OK). Why???

Like said above, several half moon turn outs. We found one that was parallel parking, which was nice because we could open our side van door right to the beach. Traffic was noisy during the day. Had the beach to ourselves though. Beautiful place to park and work
