This is an animal rescue center. They also have a veterian clinic. They help injured or ill streetdogs and cats get back to good health and then try to find a home. Every last weekend of the month they do free sterilization for cats and dogs. This helps to get the popolation under control and reduce the suffer from streetdogs and streetcats. If you see animals in a really bad condition, please contact them to see if they have space.

Monday - Friday: 16:00 - 18:00
Saturday: 11:30 - 15:00

You can come during these hours to visit the shelter. If you like, you can go for a walk with the dogs or play and cuddle with the cats. They’re all always happy to get attention. Every saturday you can also help with bathing the dogs, which is pretty funny too! :-)

Please leave a donation here or bring a bag of dog food. They are doing great work and need the support.

If you would like to help at the sterilization weekend or would love to volunteer for a couple days or weeks: please contact the shelter in advance for more informations.

We saw that the welder pinged in this town was abandoned but on the way out of town found this guy. He did some work on our truck's skid plate and charged a more than fair price.

Charged me 950 pesos for me and my dog. I tried to bargain with the guy but he wouldn't budge and I didn't feel like shopping around.

The courtyard is nice and gated at night. The room was decent and the wifi was pretty good.

Had some great tacos down the street but in the end I absolutely hated this town. Sand dunes are over rated and if your going whale watching go to San Ignacio instead. There are stray dogs everywhere and across the hotel was an abandoned building with 20 stray dogs inside that went crazy whenever me and my dog would walk by.

If your reading this, keep going to San Ignacio instead. It's a much better town.

Hotel Kuelap 0.80660, -77.58267

Great place to stay, lots of different spots. We came with a campervan and a small tent. In the evening there were some fisherman, but during the night we were alone!

As mentioned in other comments, turn away from the lake (right turn if coming from Villarrica, left turn if coming from Pucón) onto a dirt road and from there a left turn on a steep road down (take the second one), follow the river to the beach (1 minute only).

Peaje Aeropuerto -19.54708, -65.72360

the coffee machine looks legit, but it was to late in the day to get a coffee. only place in the area that would let us come in with our dogs. tons of gringos in here. I got a pork sandwich and it was pretty lackluster in every way and didn't come with fries.

Cafe La Plata -19.58952, -65.75319

As described. Overlanders pull through gate then 180* to the left, camping in front of Overlanders sign on cistern and around lone shade tree with picnic table. Paul and facilities are a short walk down the road to the east. Staff leave after 2:00 pm. kids still on break so don't know that situation.

Rancho El Camino 24.19528, -110.20224

Great spot. We parked in the back corner of RV lot. Security makes rounds which is great and really quite quiet

Riverwind Casino 35.17747, -97.50301

Typical Walmart lot in a huge retail complex. Spent one night in our Class B with no issues. Good cell service

Walmart 29.54092, -95.01977

I was able to spend a couple of nights here in my van with no issues (besides the parking lot being super packed, which is expected) but on the third night I had a couple of neighbors, including a small RV. That night a cop came around saying he’d been notified about our presence, and graciously said I could stay but that I had to leave the next day. I asked if it was legal to park overnight and he said no. So I’d say you’re probably okay for one or maybe two nights if you’re not an RV, but keep in mind it’s not technically legal.

Small semi-secluded dirt lot with some hiking trials. Pit toilet, recycling & trash cans. One bar Verizon service.

Thacker Creek parking lot 49.38324, -121.42376

We camped in the parking lot of this basic hostel. It’s very quiet and on the edge of the village. WiFi is good at reception and okay in the parking lot. Host Salvatore is a sweet guy and was surprised that we wanted to camp. He offered us the use of extra wool blankets, the bathrooms, and hot showers. Our 3 meter tall VW Westfalia hightop fit in just fine. However, the roads to get here are narrow, steep with very tight turns, so bigger rigs might not make it. We think the price is reasonable.

Small, but nice. Clean pit toilets. Less expensive than the County parks.

Boulder Oaks CG 32.72992, -116.48315

Older, funky, nice location. RV park visitors get free pool privileges, at 5 am pools get filled, at 6 am the pools are great for a dip. 9 am the pools are open to the general public. This is a great location to be based to visit Ajijic and other Pueblo Magicos. Quiet, close by grocery stores, hardware stores, and for us it was 1680 pesos a week for 2 people.

A lovely spot . feel free to use if you don't have animals When I pulled up to my chosen parking space close to dusk, two coyotes were wandering down the sidewalk. NOPE . . not with a 16 lb dog! I moved on.

Rillito River Park Parking Lot 32.28338, -110.94358

We went here today, but it was too expensive, 25000 for two (I think it doesn't depend on what car/tent you are in)

Cascada Salto Chico Camping Y Cabañas -37.21668, -72.36805

Drove past the camp today and there was only a closed ramp, so we also think it's closed.

Camping Playa Hermosa -37.21832, -72.36755

Very large, spacious parking lot attached to a corporate complex. Security patrols the lot near buildings, but I was never hassled while using the park.

Water fountains, tennis court, playgrounds, and lots of picnic tables. Large exercise installment available. The small lake is really very peaceful in the morning and a great spot to walk your dog. I felt like my van was very safe here.
