very nice place to stay. Some areas can be a bit muddy after a rain but the views are worth it. Felt very safe. A few minutes after we found our spot a police man came by and took down our info and gave us a camping permit. I saw a sign that they close the gates 11pm to 4am.

Great spot to stop hidden from the road. Very windy but that's just how this hole area is.

Beautiful beach with the sight of a shipwreck and nice spot to go snorkling!

You can only get here coming from the north (Haql). The road along the coast going south is closed because of the NEOM project.

We asked the coast guard for permission to swim here, it is allowed on the beach next to the shipwreck, do not go near the shipwreck. They also told us I was allowed to swim here as a women and that it did not matter what I wore. Nobody was around so we went snorkling in normal bathing suit!

There also is a very new and neat toilet building with showers on the outside (:

Paramos no posto pra comer e descansar um pouco. Boa infraestrutura, banheiros limpos, ducha quente, wi-fi bom. O atendimento da loja de conveniências é ótimo, pessoas educadas. Achamos que seria um bom lugar pra passar a noite, mas como é cedo 13:15h seguiremos viagem até Santa Cruz e depois Rio Gallegos.

Good selection of fresh food and many other items. Perhaps the best location in Colon.

Good parking. good pressure

I stayed overnight in a very large Parking lot next to the tourist train station near the Willets skatepark. Parks surround the area . There were no signs. It was quiet and flat. Public restrooms across the street, open 6am til 10 pm. A couple of cars pulled in , didn’t stay. Felt safe.

Willits Park 39.41195, -123.34695

Municipality park with cafe and restaurant. Drinking water, children playground, WC and park spots. Quiet and safe. There is a guard at night. Free of charge. Nice park for walking. Few friendly stray dogs and cats to feed.

People are friendly like others said space for a few vehicles. Shower is great, toilet is fine. We didn't think it was particularly smelly or dirty. Great base to visit Dakar/stamp your carnet.

The price on 16 Nov 2022 is 2600 (including 2 people and a motorhome). This is still a very reasonable price (about $10US per night) considering inflation and assuming you get your money at Western Union. Many shops nearby. Nice walk along the malecon. Yes, be sure to turn on the cold water FIRST in the shower and then regulate the temperature. Ablutions cleaned daily.

Very nice recreation center with hot showers, indoor pool, hot tubs, and slides for kids. Day pass was $8 last time I went for use of the whole facility, I didn't ask whether or not they have a "shower only" price. Wifi is also available. Open swim is 12-7pm on weekdays and 12-6pm on weekends.

Nice local place to buy authentic artesanales from the region. Not from China, good prices, very friendly woman. Near the entrance tap water.

Casa de artesanales -26.48016, -67.26459

Peaceful place in a nice compound, full of artwork and former home of famous artist Nike Okundaye.
Rooms and bathrooms are spotless and prices range from 7k to 10k. Electricity was on during my whole stay.
A bit far from town, but taxis and okadas are easy to get just out of the gate.
A few shops around for food or warm beer (for cold ones, just go to the hotel next door), or meals can be arranged by the friendly staff on demand. There's also a kitchen for guest's use.
Ended up here after checking other places in town that were either full or awful and no regrets, it's the best place and the best bed I've had in a long time.
Safe parking, but they don't allow camping.

Love the spot. Great sunset views. Cell service. Little rough getting to a good level spot. There are private signs up across the road and public access signs up on the side overlooking the canyon.

Arrive late in the evening on a November night. The established campground appeared to be close so we decided to camp in the parking lot at the trail head adjacent to Lake Sherado. There were absolutely no signs posted that prohibited overnight parking. But I suspect during the summer season the park rangers patrol this area and would probably make you leave. However, in November, there was nobody else around and we had the whole place to ourselves.

Ficamos 8 dias parados nesse local, uma vista linda. Lugar seguro porque tem a polícia, o bebedouro fica de frente a polícia, não tem como colocar mangueira pra encher caixa d’água, tem banheiro no local, mas sem banho. Recomendamos, com certeza voltaríamos. Pessoas muito acolhedoras.

If you are in the area this is a really cool place to check out. Manatees come here during the colder months (dec-march ish) for the warm waters. It is a free park but you do have to pay $1/hr to park. They have short walking paths and picnic areas too, also bathrooms.

Manatee Park 26.69395, -81.77877

On the way form Luxor to Aswan we were stopped at this checkpoint and send back to the east side of the Nile. The police told us that foreigners are not allowed to use the desert road to Aswan on the west side of the Nile. We had to take the much slower and less comfort road on the east side of the Nile. Other Overlanders told me that they were allowed to take the desert road in the same day in the morning. We were there around 14h30. so if you want to give it try better to try in the morning. I think that don't want to have foreigners on the desert road after sunset.
