Description

Off the hwy 190 on the road towards Puebla, 1 mile on a dirt road towards the tourist complex. Take the first right just before the underpass. It is a disused carpark with level parking with a few cows wandering past. Super quiet and far away from any habitations. Road is dirt and slightly undulating with one tight corner.

Would not recommend. First gate you come to, go right through, shut it behind you. Take dirt road to the right, that's where the eco-camp is/was. 2nd gate to the camp was locked with no signs of life. Pool looked half drained and not taken care of. Did not appear to have been in use recently. There's an OK spot to park just before the first gate. We were warned by a guy on a bike that it might not be safe there. We headed down the road to a nice Pemex.

We just left here. It is now an nice eco camp with hot showers and clean toilets. at first the caretaker did not want to let us camp, saying they were fully booked. there was just one couple there, lounging in the pool. In the end, we could stay for $90 MX. There is not much flat or level room - I assume they built on these spots- but in the far back we found a spot. The dirt road to there is still bumpy with low hanging branches. If you don't mind scratches, you can get a medium sized camper there.
You might be able to camp for free outside the gate on the patch of level grass, but there you will probably hear dogs barking all might
