not the best. you are visible from the road and directly next to it. loud. we did not stay. if your car can do very steep and rocky paths, take the path down to the riverbed. there are lots of trees, less noise and you are hidden from the road.

Chongwe top river crossing. We were told at Woods Camp that this is a “year round” crossing and the river should be good to cross here despite being in rainy season (it had been unseasonably dry). The road to here was tough in sections. We attempted to cross in a landrover defender but abandoned as the river was too fast flowing. Water level approx 80-90cm deep. The current was strong. Wouldn’t recommend at this time of year. Turned into a pretty spot for a picnic though!

We checked this place out and the river was wide, deep and muddy and absolutely not crossable at this time of year (March).

Corrupt police - but was easy to handle. They wanted to write me a ticket for driving without light on which is not possible with a modern motorbike from europe. I explained and showed this fact. After explaning I was allowed to go, took 3 minutes in summary. But obviously they try to charge you from any stupid reason.

This place is right off of St Charles rd. Just go inside the building to check in with the staff. They’ll have you pull behind the gate. Fill station is just behind the fence at the ladder on the concrete wall. Quick, easy, decent price for the area.

Amazing place and value, probably the best we've seen throughout the Huasteca!
Still 70$ per person per night, which is a very good value when you consider that you are just in front of your own piece of river and waterfalls, where you can swim and chill, the place is very well maintained and beautiful, and there are flush toilets and showers (cold, but considering the temperature its actually a plus 🤣)
Nacho the manager is a wonderful and attentive host...and has a lot of recomendations on cool hikes and off the beaten path things in the area - so practice your Spanish because its truly worth it to chat with him! His partner Carla is also very sweet...
All in all, great great place. We were going to stay 1 night and ended up staying 5...

Super nice community spot with activities and shows for both kids and adults. We participated in a free circus workshop. Check the sandwich board on the street or their Instagram to know what's up. They also have a little library and play area for kids, and welcome people to drop in anytime.

Very nice farmers owners. Beautiful environment in the red dunes.
Campsite at 600 meters from the farm. 4 pitches with water tap, shadow, braai, sink and garbage bins. salty but drinkable water. rustic donkey showers and flushing toilets. no toilet paper and you had to switch on the donkey :-(
free and slow wifi only at the farm.
120 pppn. for us, not the best, not the worst : 3/5.

There is a water faucet right besides the building. You have to step up the stairs to find it. A woman who works at tourism center told us where to find it.

A Usina de Arte é um museu a céu aberto com grandes instalações, em uma área de uma antiga usina de açúcar. A visitação é gratuita, o lugar é lindo e bem cuidado. Passamos a noite no estacionamento da usina e foi uma noite tranquila, mas não vimos vigilância, então não dá pra afirmar que é 100% seguro. Um detalhe sobre a visitação é que a vegetação ainda está de pequeno porte ,e portanto tem pouca sombra. Aconselho visitar nas primeiras horas do dia ou no final da tarde.

Good parking to stop after border crossing if it’s too late to go further. Huge parking lot with a restaurant and a pool (didn’t use it). Quite noisy with the truck coming and going but felt really safe.
It was 40c a night (we didn’t eat at the restaurant)
