Description

We have not found another place to put a big rig. This place is convenient to everything you want or need. They charged us 100 pesos a person per day for full hookups. There are not hookups but there is one outlet for one cord. You can dump in the open sewer and fill with a hose. This is a place where the tourist and commercial buses rest nightly. They will open up one bus and blare the music on a Monday night (not a holiday) until midnight or later. Not every night but often enough. Also there is a group of locals that meet here in their cars and park in the back of the lot and blare their music and light fireworks. Earplugs needed here. We think the price is high for what you receive but we have not found a another place yet that will hold our big rig. We have not used the shower here. The internet works at an okay speed if it is working. It will go down 4-10 times in an hour.

Dirt lot on the edge of town. They were under construction so the bathroom wasn't always functional. when it was it was a dirty bucket flush. also was ran out by a woman saying we were not allowed to use it. Paid $100 pesos per night, but after the first night the mgr tried to charge us $200 in the morning saying we under paid. the owner spoke great English. no shower we went to a Posada nearby and paid per shower. if you have another option take it. We would not recommend. shame because the town is great. really noisy in mornings. it's not much better than street parking in the end. turns out the bathroom is private and an extra charge.

Do not camp here! They'll try to make as much money out of you as possible. came to us next day to day we didn't say that we're camping and that it costs more to camp. Said no, we clearly said camping, after a while it was ok.
No shower or toilet at all! They'll say you can use the one that's there (which is unbearably disgusting!) but it does not belong to them, you have to pay extra to use that horrible, dirty, tiny bucket flush toilet.
Only positive thing is location. 100 pesos is a complete rip off for staying on a parking lot. This certainly is not a Trailer Park even though they call it that. Also construction work going on so loud noise early in the morning and all day until at night the fireworks start.
Just don't stay here, treat yourself to a hotel or something.

Don't do it. After we settled on 100mxp per night for 6 days, in writing even, they came by and told us the price does not include days, and was only the price for nights. They wanted us to pay another 100mxp for the day time. We told them we would leave if they wanted more money and we asked for a refund. They finally let us stay at the previously agreed upon price because they were not willing to give us any money back. Zoomba classes next door start at 6:00am and end at 10:00pm, very loud. They are building a hotel on-site, so there is a work crew there all day. The 2nd day we were there they began construction on the bathroom and we were left without toilets. Go to Arcotete, or grab an Airbnb. This place is no good.

This place is definitely a NO GO!
Since management changed nothing is working properly:
- Mainly only bucket flush toilet
- No toilet paper
- No shower
- No wifi (did connect, but never worked)
- Loud music from nearby place
- Unfriendly
- 100mex / pers / night

Price update!
100mxn per night, period. not per person, but per night! still has wifi and bathroom, shower has been removed.
we stopped here a few months ago and were charged the 120pp/night. came back to use a mechanic we liked (jose manuel, see mechanic checkin) and were pleasantly surprised with the price change!
it is still just a parking lot, but for 100mxn with wifi, bathrooms, and close to town, we aren't complaining! also, no buses came while we were here. could be time of year, but it was very quiet.

This place is for sale and we think it might be sold as we saw contracts being signed and the surveyors came...but maybe not.

Pretty much a parking lot for busses and auto storage. Also a car wash and maybe a shop?

Wifi is fast(ish) when it works, but is intermittent. Bathroom is tiny, the shower just sticks out of the wall with no extra stall, but it's clean and serviceable. Water like warm.

We were charged $130mex, but they expected us to be out by 7 am. Not entirely sure why, assuming it wouldn't be that way if we were staying multiple days.

It was 100 per person for camping. As it was cold, we decided to look for a hotel room and found one on the same street for the same price - 200 pesos for the room.

Très bien, nous avons payé M440 par nuit pour quatre. Près du parc central, et loin des petites rues.

Still 120 pesos pp. Ok place as close to the main square. Friendly staff. Bathroom is indeed tiny and basic but was clean when we were there. Wifi available but average quality.

No hookups. It is a parking lot. Gates locked around midnight and open before 7. Quiet at night and convenient to Central district. Chedraui within 3 blocks.

Report Check-In

It is just a big gravel parking lot. They charged $120 pesos/person which seems really expensive, especially because the wifi wasn't great and the hot water they offer is in a bathroom the size of a closet with a toilet,urinal, and shower head, which smelled bad. It is a close walk to the square, so was fine for one night.

Parking lot with easy access to town. Price for hookups is 120 pesos per person, 90 pesos per person for no hookups and no use of bathrooms. WiFi and Telcel are solid. Many laundry places nearby for roughly 10 pesos per kg.

We did not camp here but parked for a few weeks while renting an apartment in the center. We paid 760 pesos per month for parking and we were told we would pay 120 pesos per person per night to camp. There is electricity, wifi, and a dump station. Google Maps has this as Trailer Park La Merced. Good location and relatively easy to get to for San Cris center.

Not a pretty place but it Has good wifi, and it Is located not far from the center. The narrow streets and the one-way streets can make it difficult to find it.
