Little place right at the off ramp with amazing food. I had the Denver omlette, it came with home made refried beans, potatoes, and toast but ask for the tortillas, they are home made and perfect. The green sauce is deceptive, it will sneak up on you, cleared my sinuses and made me sweat but I couldn't stop eating it. My wife had chicken chiliquiles and my daughter had ham and eggs, along with 3 drinks and 6 extra tortillas to go, the bill was only $34 We were camped about 1 mile away at Alamo River Rv campground and the recommended the breakfast here.

Alamo River RV Resort 29.29918, -98.65136

Too much noise from the atvs zooming all day around camp, up and down the roads with lots of dust. It is the weekend, but really? It’s every 10 minutes snd theres a big group. There’s a popular bar in a container down the road and they all come through. Last night was quiet, waiting to see how long it lasts. Sites are pretty unlevel, it is crowded.

The good part is there is a great view to the south. It’s close to shopping on the north side of town. Easy access.

Small petrol station. Slightly higher rates than normal, but it's the only one in between Puerto Natales and Esperanza. No 'Diesel comun', just the supreme one 😬

Don't take this road. It's gravel. The one via Esperanza is longer, but faster. Also recommended by the locals 😊

Bad gravel road -50.88212, -71.54825

Quite good coffee, cakes and free WiFi. No bad for a stop in the middle of nowhere ☺️

Restaurante confitería La Esperanza -51.03025, -70.77918

Normal prices. And they have, Diesel comun'. Bar with WiFi attached. But for good coffee go to the hotel/ restaurant across the road.

Esperanza -51.02996, -70.77782

Nice campsite, with a lot of green and some privacy. Clean bathrooms and showers. They have a heated bathroom (haven't had that for months 😃). WiFi available, but not on site. Unfortunately the community room is temporarily closed. Price is 2.000 pesos ppn plus 500 for the car.

Walmart parking very quiet. There is sign "no overnights rv parking" but some rv stay for the night. We have a van and nobody come.

Parking Walmart calme. Il y a des panneaux qui interdit les cc mais il y en a qui sont restés toute la nuit. On a un van et personne n'est venu

There is a few better spots along the road on the way there, imo. This actual spot at the gate is not bad, until they unlock the gate at 5am and then trucks traffic starts... even on Dec 31.

Pulled up this afternoon with a few spots still available. Gorgeous lake view and final sunset of 2022. Might try a dip in the lake in the morning. Happy new year all.

Governor’s Landing 29.47893, -101.02849

This eastern road off Highway 1 is not nearly as well travelled as the one directly across the road to the west, as it’s a two track with some mild sandy rocky sections, but any 4x4 or motorcycle with clearance can handle. It was a perfect spot for my motorcycle and I felt very safe and secluded.

I rebuilt the fire ring and there are boulders to climb for sunrise/sunset views among all the cacti and Boojum trees. Also, the large boulders shield you and your fire from being seen from the highway to avoid any unwanted attention. It also eliminates any noise from the truckers passing by.

I hid my bags behind some boulders and then went into town for supplies. Abarrotes Tonche is the place to get firewood (leña). It’s on the east side, 1000’ north of the mini mart. The mini mart has anything else you need: made to order food, beer, ice and much more. 1 hour of WiFi was like $130 MX.

Pro tip: be prepared for the chance of a lot of condensation. This spot is higher ground but this morning I could see the surrounding areas enveloped in fog, which could be super cool too! Just be ready to dry your tent in the morning.

This whole are is magical! If it’s on your radar and you’re passing through, don’t miss it. There are lots of roads and sites in the area to choose from. Happy travels…

Valle de Los Cirios - East of Hwy 1 29.81315, -114.79595

This is a great spot to park overnight for off grid rigs that requires sky clearance for both Solar charging and Starlink satellite internet! Its close to an industrial park, so could be busy during the business hours. It’s super quiet after 5. Only 7 minutes away from grocery stores and restaurants. Stayed here a few days at a time for several times no problem

Shell Rd and Dyke Rd 49.11692, -123.10362
