Secure, quiet parking in owner’s walled “front yard.” Flush toilet and shower. Easy walk to town for groceries, laundry, etc.
Zihul is very helpful and knowledgeable about the area. He can also arrange whale watching or trips to see cave paintings. Across the street from the camping area Zihul’s gallery/store with hand made knives, hatchets, jewelry, Excellent Baja Maps, and other things. A great resupply/rest stop.

As mentioned already, Zihul is very friendly and welcoming. Happy to support him and his business with $20/night camping at his backyard. We came on a Friday, and had the whole camp to ourselves. Zihul has chairs, table and shades setup for travelers to use. And the bathroom and shower were very clean. Shower was a trickle, but it did the job.

Zihul totally deserves your business. H.e created a nice place to stay overnight in town. Clean and very friendly. He continues to improve the site so we were happy to support him with the 20$ (400 peso) camp fee.

Super friendly and helpful owner. Clean shower and bathroom. He said laundry available. We did not use. Only stayed 1 night. Perfect for vans but Not really suitable for large rigs. Lot is soft sand. My 24’ class c spun out climbing hill into parking. I was able to back down and take another run. Problem is the gate. I had about 1cm (1/2 inch) clearance on each side of my mirrors. I did drag going up the little hill. I doubt anything longer would make it. Town is built on a sand dune. Sites are soft sand. I sunk over an inch (2cm). Other than the size restrictions I would recommend. Quiet, safe, and usable WiFi. A bit pricy at 400 pesos with no hookups.

A lovely, safe place to stay with basic amenities and a warm welcome with lots of advice for the area (English speakers). They are putting a lot of work into it and I'll definitely return.
I was able to pull in with a 23ft RV towing a 14ft trailer (for the motorcycle). It was tight but doable.

It is a great place for a city stop. The guy’s are nice and the sanitary (shower + toilets) are clean.

Nice spot. Still working on getting the bathrooms set up (no hot water). But the owner is super nice, it’s small, and nice grounds.

Zihul is a good source of info on the area. Ask him about Rancho Chinga and google that (it's not what you think). We might try and roll out there to visit the ranch, but I bet he can tell you all about where to go in Baja.

We stayed here on 12/10/2021. Clean and comfortable. Zihul is super friendly and very knowledgeable about the surrounding area. He gave us some great suggestions for off the beaten path places to visit.

Very comfortable place to camp, away from the noise and the wind. Showers and internet run well. I was also allowed to make a little fire next to my camping spot, which was very nice as the night came on.
