Horrible night! After a silent magical sunset nearly every motorbike comes and they drove until 11:30 pm very loud. After that, the first fisherman came with their cars. During the whole night it was very loud. And at 6 am the truck for the fresh fish came and let his motor permanently on. By the way: we didn’t see any dolphins and our skipper seemed to be very bored… better don’t sleep here!!!

We got the recommendation of this place from a friendly inhabitant of the Island and it was very good and tasty. We paid around 17 mn Rials for four persons, which is very affordable for fresh fish!
There is no way to drive to Hidroelectrica at the moment. You have to park up in Santa Teresa, then take a collectivo or taxi to the rope/zip-line where they will pull you over the river. Then a collectivo will drive you to the train station for 7 soles. However, the road to the train station is also under construction and it might happen you have to wait an hour or two before you can continue through

Literally what everyone else has said, just checking in.

Out in the bush between Gagarin landing and capsule landing memorials. You can hear the traffic. At night not to bat. Hidden from the road. 4G. Flat areas.

Slept there for one night. It was quiet but windy. Nearest toilet is in Hotel Bajo Caracoles.
We crossed this border without any problems. We did the salvoconducto 2 days before and it only took 30 minutes to receive it.
BTW, it is the most beautiful and astonishing scenic road we saw in South America.

Did not see anything for camping at this location. We did see a Rhea.

Nor much wind protection unless the wind is blowing from the South.
Nice enough place with a handful of rooms and friendly host. Has a large common area for use and you can use the kitchen for a little extra. Didn't include breakfast and didn't seem to be WiFi, though the shower was nice and hot. Price is $15.000 pesos and an extra $2.000 for use of the kitchen.
wow great camping site very very comfortable for all the facilities. shower kitchen restroom if you are around Ukmal you have to stop here for sure.

wifi average, nice boat, we sleep here
wifi moyenne, joli bateau, nous dormons sur place
Lovely little hotel with bright, clean en suite rooms in doubles, twins triples and quadruples. All excellent value for money. We paid 30AZN for a triple room (double and a single). Super friendly hosts which speak Azeri, Russian and some English but make everyone feel super welcome! They invited us in for tea when we arrived and promptly offered us a home cooked dinner for an extra 5AZN each - well worth it! They grow all their own vegetables on site and have their own chickens for fresh eggs. Breakfast is an extra 3AZN but well worth it. There is secure parking in a large locked courtyard. Space for several vehicles but big rigs wouldn’t get in, that said there is ample parking outside the compound and it’s well off the main road so I am sure it would be safe. Wi-Fi is good, A/C in all the rooms too.
200$ per camper, 50$ extra for shower. Francisco is very nice and shows you around on their property. Kids can speak english. Campsite is nothing special but calm.. toilets are not the cleanest. You can also store your car here for 100$ per day. The 'guard dog' Esperancita is the cutest!! give her some treats if you have ;)
hermoso lugar. la gruta es increíble. perfecto lugar para meditar o rezar con el sonido de las cascadas. o simplemente para disfrutar el lugar. la gente que cuida el lugar es muy amable y servicial. para motorhomes grandes hay dos o tres lugares.

We headed this direction based on the "don't research it, just come here" comments. Had lunch in Causalidad, almost turned around and headed the other direction, tired of bumpy roads and worried about fuel. Boy are we glad we didn't. What an otherworldy scene up here. Definitely worth it if you are wandering around Puna in a capable vehicle.
The isolated paved portion of 27, from Causalidad to Caipe, is a neat vestige of the old mining days, connecting the mine to the nearest rail depot. Unfortunately it is really starting to deteriorate from modern mining traffic.
very peaceful. spent two nights here. Starlink was partially obstructed. some phone signal. I imagine this would be stinky and mosquitoey in other seasons, but it's lovely in late fall. didn't see anyone else. picked up half a bag of trash. Marion national forest allows dispersed camping with a permit.

Couldn’t really believe we could park and camp here but I trusted the reviews and all went well! Tons of space to walk the dog. Did encounter a raccoon that was very curious and wanted to explore my car so watch out for that. You can definitely hear street / city noise but wasn’t too bad. Would definitely recommend!

Ficamos aqui por 2 dias, um grande estacionamento na praça de eventos, acredito que não poderá ficar em período de eventos.

Estación de servicio nos permitieron pasar la noche gratis.
Sites are very basic and amount to little more than a parking space with water and electric. Dogs in nearby homes and apartments bark pretty much continuously
|Hotel Playa de Cortès
Very nice campsite, excellent and clean showers. Water taps only near the toilets. A bit expensive, $3000 pp and $1000 per car
Water is shut off, and probably not just for the season. The spigot is hard to find. It is on the side of the pump machine of leftmost truck fuel lane, which makes it accessible if parked in the rightmost RV fuel lane.

I'd like to comment that the crossing is OPEN again with fresh wooden planks. there was even a huge 10 ton+ construction vehicle that crossed it to enter the building by the bridge, I think they are working around there and they fixed it. HOWEVER, the security guard told me it was 10 soles to cross, I just ignored and crossed. Other vehicles drove by without paying, I am not the one being the idiot around today.
Access not possible anymore, with the pavement on the road apparently they closed it.
No access anymore due to the work on the pavement that was built.

Not far from the main road but enough to sleep without noise. Small place in the middle of the trees to park for a night. A guy came the next morning and just said “bem-vindos”.

Bridge is fixed. Saw a at least 10 ton truck fully loaded pass.
