Great place to stop and listen to the stories of Javier and his wife who are both amazing hosts trying to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
Campground and park , with motocross tracks and children playground. Backpackers, RVs, bikers, welcome! We have fresh water showers, toilets, place to park big enough for big rigs and food service available. Close to border with El Salvador and warm weather all year. Right outside of Chiquimuñilla Km 117

Can't say enough good things about these guys, they were fabulous. the place was so welcoming and so much to take in, activities everywhere. facilities were fab, nice toilet and shower. They allowed us top up our water before departing and WiFi was decent enough. donations stillReport Check-In
The owners were absolutely wonderful people, they went out of their way to help us in every way possible. Clean bathrooms and showers. Highly recommend this place as a stop before or after the border crossingReport Check-In
The best place to stay before crossing the border to El Salvador. All amenities are provided by Javier and his wife Isabel. A lot of crafted things for the Kids there! zip line, quads, mini football field and so many things to discover... For free. You can donate or simply help them to work in their place. For the night, owners leave the place and close the gate, you feel secured because it is caméra checked. definitly à place to stay!Report Check-In
Fantastic place just before (or after) the border.
Javier is an incredible guy. Went out of his way to get us water, he gave us electricity which meant he had to get out two extension cables.
Ha didn’t ask for money, we gave 50qtz for one night.
Look no further, this is the place to camp in the area.
Wonderful place to stay, Javier is a real gem and a really nice project to support.
Camping with power, showers and wifi. Hammocks. Close to road but wasn’t too loud at night, 40km to Salvador border. Really great spot to stay. Just be aware of lots of ants if leaving food out.
Also, the owner said it’s donation based. Give as you feel led. He’s super kind and brought us banana apples.Report Check-In
Made it in my 13 m, 41 foot Skoolie. See pictures. TIGHT but doable. Also there’s a large spot for 2-3 rigs in the front by the road. Safe there too but more noise. Insist on here if you aren’t excited about the tight turns. We made it howeverReport Check-In
If you drive from or to the border Guatemala / El Salvador at Hachadura it is a must to stay one night at Javier!
The very large camping site is charming with its strange constructions and playgrounds. Big enough for any camper.
There are showers and toilets and many abandoned vehicles in which you can sleep.
And all on a donation basis.
It was a very nice stayover - I highly recommend!Report Check-In
Great place close to El Salvador. Xavier is fantastic and just a great host. Large area for kids to play, he gave us his 4 wheeler to cruise around his compound with the kids and they loved it. Has WiFi and toilet and shower.Report Check-In
Super friendly Place. Good spot before or after border crossing. Good shower and clean toilet.Report Check-In
Nice place, just of the road. Good showers and nice owner. Did leave in the afternoon so I am pretty sure that we were alone on the property. Also the gate was closed when we arrived, but owner opened it after a couple of minutes.Report Check-In
Another great recommendation for this place! Javier and Isabel are wonderful and helpful people. Super relaxed place.

Great spot to spend a night on the way to the Guatemala / El Salvador border. Hugely friendly owners and nice facilities, especially if you have a family. Payment is by donation. We have 50Q for two people for one night. Great cheese shop across the road too!Report Check-In
like its already writtend, really wonderfull people and nice campround. we wish we would have stayed longer. our kid enjoyed the place. you park around the field with the animals, its quiet. just wow !!Report Check-In
Descansamos aquí 4 noches antes de cruzar la frontera.
Este lugar es súper tranquilo y seguro para descansar.
En el camping hay para realizar varias actividades, como cuatrimoto, tirolesa, juegos para niños y animalitos con los que puedes interactuar.
Don Javier y su esposa fueron muy atentos con nosotros y les gusta recibir viajeros.
El camping no tiene costo, es a voluntad.
We stopped here after reading all the wonderful reviews and iam so grateful we did. An issue with my trailer was alot bigger than I thought and Javier has all the tools and the knowledge to get the job done. iam so happy we landed here and are not stranded on a hwy somewhere!!Report Check-In
Believe the reviews. Quite possibly the nicest people in the world. Paying is by donation; we went for a walk and when we came back they had put a doormat outside our van to help with the mud; my girlfriend went to the washroom building just after dark and couldn't find the light switch, and without being asked someone just walked across the whole property and turned on the lights for her. There's a workshop to fix your vehicles, they have a little snack restaurant with reasonable prices, and about 1000 things for kids to play on/with.
Absolutely incredible travel spot.Report Check-In
Fantastic place just as everyone described!! Love it!Report Check-In
This place is amazing ! The owner and his wife are so nice … I ve no word for describe them…. They are so helpful, welcoming people !
This place is paradise for kids! They have football playground, trampolin, kart… they have a place for repair your van … shower …
It’s perfect place for relax and prepare your departure for Salvador.
Everything has been said about this nice place and the incredibly kind owners! We actually just wanted to stay a quick nights on our way to El Salvador but ended up staying two. Please make this a stop along your route and support the project with a donation. These are the places/people why we travel in the first place...Report Check-In
Great spot, we stayed one night before we went to El Salvador. There is a lot to do on the campground, especially for kids. The campsite has cold showers, a place to work in your car, a cinema inside an old car (with aircon!), a BBQ, fire pit, fitness area, playground for kids, and more. The couple that owns the place all made it themselves and have tons of projects more to finish.
They take donations and we gave them 75Q for the night.Report Check-In
Such nice people. Showers, toilet, fitness area, wifi, cooking space and a lot of space to park with your van. Directly next to the road but convenient if you are heading to the border. Few animals around (goats, chicken and a cute little Chihuahua). Loved the place.Report Check-In
Absolutely blown away by Javier and his wife's hospitality. Everything as described below - great bathrooms, great food, lots of animals, he lets you use the quads and bicycles and has a big property to explore!Report Check-In
Excessively good people. This couple is incredible. They offer so much to travelers, they have been traveler as well and "know what are the needs". The owner let you use his quad for whatever you need, we had to go buy some food and water in town, was easy and fun that way ! The bathroom is large and with light.
We recommend this place.
There is place to rest hidden from the sun.
Large terrain, goats, chicken, quad with circuit.
An absolutely lovely stop. We stayed here for 4 nights before crossing into El Salvador, and the owners were extremely welcoming. They offer good food and drinks (non alcoholic) at all hours of the day, and medium speed wifi. We were welcomed to use their quads and air-conditioned "movie room" (a converted van) all for free. Cold showers and clean bathrooms. The gates are closed at night so it feels very safe. Make sure to give them a donation at the end to thank them for their hospitality, and say hi to their adorable mini chihuahua Todo (Toto?), he's so so sweet.Report Check-In
Javier and his wife are really nice and helpful. We spent a night in their campground, nearby the road, but noise was not a problem for us. Food is also good after a day of driving. Excellent place to stay and hope to be back in a few years when everything will be perfect.Report Check-In
The perfect stop off to the border. The owners are lovely people. We were offered free showers, tools, water, coffee and quad biking, which is great fun. Javier is possible the nicest person I’ve ever met. We stayed three nights doing some work on our kombi, which he helped us with too. They didn’t want any money but we wanted to give a donation as they had been so good to us. Highly recommend before crossing into El Salvador.Report Check-In
As described, great owners, great place! We ended up staying two nights as we had a blast riding the quad/ dirt bike, ziplining, etc with our kids.
Javier also offered us to help store our car for two months, they are supportive with just about anything!
Absolutely amazing stay and friendly people.
This place is in wrong location - it is located at 14.06266, -90.37141Report Check-In
This place is great. Run by a couple who makes you feel welcome and safe. They don’t charge for camping but we advise giving them a donation because they are such great hosts. The campsite is simple. Doesn’t have any hookups but a place to park vans and concrete pads for tents. Bathrooms and showers are clean and well maintained. They have a small snack bar with café, agua fresca, burritos, hamburguesas and other light meals. Please stop by if it’s on your way a support a great small business.Report Check-In
Really fun place. Totally self made by friendly and happy couple who runs the place. They have a playing garden, quads, a climbing area and lots more. Also they serve cold fruit drinks and hamburgers.
Toilet building with cold shower and running toilets. We offered us to camp for free but we gave them some money afyerwards.
The place is located at the southside of the road!Report Check-In
Un lugar de aventura (para adultos y niños) donde se pasa super alegre. Las vistas son bellas y los anfitriones super amables y buena onda. Super cerca de la ciudad de Guatemala viajando por Carretera a El Salvador.Report Check-In
Awesome place with the nicest owners. We could camp here for free and use the showers, toilets, wifi and even their quad bikes! They have alot of cute animals and even a little racoon! There is also a big self made playground so it will be great for kids. A little foodtruck is present aswell. Really one of the best spots to camp at!!Report Check-In
Humble campground owner offered us to stay for free. Place is just starting up. Showers, place to park big enough for big rigs. Close to border with El Salvador. Flat spots for tent camping as well. Right outside of Chiqui Km 117Report Check-In
