This is a Earth friendly place. They have built this place to conserve 80 hectres of land for the Puma and other animals. On the land they have Eco friendly "glamping". There are 2 places. An A frame cabin (900 pesos/nite) and a lovely place for 1500/nite with flush toilet and jacuzzi tub. They also have a place to just car camp or tent with use of a shower and composting toilet. They are just getting started so please support their efforts.
Know as anywhere in this forest are really rotten black flies. bring bug spray and long protective clothing. It's worth it to experience this beautiful forest. It's cooler up here than down at the beach.

Nos gustó tanto el lugar que nos quedamos 2 noches! El sonido de las olas y la vista.. está increíble! Algunas personas aparcan aquí por el día para tomarse fotos, pero el lugar permanece muy tranquilo. La playa Punta de Tralca está a 15min caminando para ir a pasear. La segunda noche (viernes) a las 4h hubo un carro con música, pero avisamos a los jóvenes y bajaron la música sin problema, se fueron poco tiempo después.

Seguro, mas barulhento durante à noite.
Pode ser que estava pior por ser na sexta-feira.

Jones Street is free parking all day. A tad noisy with traffic but there is a church and empty lot surrounding so nobody will bother you

Nice waterfall, BUT: way too expensive! Paid 84.000 GS / US$ 12 per Person just for entry, the elevator would have been another 30.000 GS. And there is no other way to the bottom level of the falls, you’d have to take the elevator. Our camper is too high for the gate at the parking- fortunately, otherwise we would have paid for that, too. Just parked a bit up the street.

While parking in the city is pretty reasonable overall, this is the cheapest lot we found. Feel free to move the pin if you find cheaper.

Mon to Fri: 5a-5p $2 (total, not per hour)
Sat and Sun: 5a-5p $5
5p-5a $5

A typical Walmart parking lot, but very busy throughout the day. Wi-fi is available in the parking lot if you are close to the store. I saw a pig wandering the lot this morning.

Wonderful place, highly recommended. Clean, friendly, beautiful, gorgeous beach, tiny fishing town, super laid back vibe. 300 for 30 amp, 250 for 15 amp. Spaces would be tricky to get anything very big into. If your rig is large, I would double check before coming. This place does fill up, so you may want to confirm availability.

Wifi coming soon. We did not see any sani dump capability, but maybe it's only in some sites.

Ground not very level but good enough for a one-night stop. Beware the ground near the cliff edge is not very firm, so don't park too close to it. Everything else as described.

We parked in the spaces to the far south/east section of parking lot next to the opening to an open lot. I’d advise NOT driving into that lot to turn around. It is saturated with water and very muddy. There was a pickup blocking the entrance probably because of that reason. A little noisy because of the I-12 freeway running next to it, but the price is right. Thank you CB for allowing us to spend the night

Beautiful spot and it is EMPTY this time of year! I had unlimited choice in campsites and chose one with a gorgeous backdrop of the mountains. Heard only two other vehicles and saw one person walking a dog, other than that, just me and the coyotes for a few days. The snow has left some deep & soft mud ruts at certain sites. The main road is fine but I needed 4x4 to go back a bit.

As others have said, I’m sure this place is madness in the spring and summer. Definitely worth it to check out, though. I surprisingly didn’t see any trash.

We stayed at the bottom of the sand dunes. We drove about 5 minutes passed this location and found a flat spot sheltered from the wind. You can access the beach about 5 minute up the hill. You can get some cell service

Nice rest area. In Minnesota parking at a highway rest area is limited to 4 hours, but I have stayed overnight a few times at this particular rest stop.

Signage can be a bit confusing here, so I have included a picture confirming $6 for camping and petroglyphs with the "America the Beautiful" pass. That is the normal pass people under 62 have.
There is no signage about this discount at the campground, only at the day use area. I only looked around for it because other overlanders indicated this discount.

Wide open desert campground, but well spaced and not very busy on a Friday.
Looks like there is some BLM free camping across the main road, although with 4x4 entrances.

They stopped us but no problem at all. Just few minutes of random but very nice and kind conversation. We didn't need to show any document.

Great tourguides with perfect english speaking crew.
You can book online, really easy and was a great snorkeling with the whale sharks. They have a choice of different tours, the sealions snorkeling is possible, too. We booked three days in advance, but they have a lot of slots. Visit their page:
