Description

This place is an oasis on Costa Chica in Guerrero. We have decided to spend a week, as the temps are perfect, and it is a quiet break from being on the road. 300 Pesos per night for Camping (rooms also available). Wifi 70 pesos for 24h. The sign for the turnoff from Rt. 200 says Playa Ventura, the map says Juan Alvarez. There is a pool and a good casual restaurant. From Aug.-Nov. this a prime spot for seeing turtles. The owner is Swiss and fluent in many languages. Also most kind and knowledgable about the area.

Heads up to those planning to stop here soon…. We found out on arrival that they are currently closed! In chatting with a few people around, it is possible maybe just for a week break? Have a back up plan in case!

When first pulled up we were greeted by an aggressive pit bull. we were told to keep our dogs on leashes, cool, no problem, but he lets his dog run free and eventually attacks our dog which is tied up. not freaking cool man. no power or water to hook up at and no wifi. and to top it all off, we sat down for dinner and grabbed a couple of beers. for over an hour he didn't come to take our order or offer more 36 peso coronas. This place is by far the most unfriendly spots we have stayed at in all of Mexico. I can't believe we paid for this experience.

Nice place with nice owners, 300 Pesos per night even if you don't need electricity and it has no free Wifi (you can buy Internet for 24h for 70 pesos), quite expensive. We had the Pool (nice and clean) almost all the time for ourselves and enjoyed our stay.

The detour of the MEX200 to this place on the Playa Ventura is very worthwhile. Ersther and Viktor are Swiss people and run this oasis excellently. There are 4-6 RV sites with electricity, high-speed internet, etc. The menu card offers a large selection. The large pool is very well maintained and clean. Cost MX $ 150 / pers. Highly recommended. It was said in German: “rattenscharf” -
hot as a rat

Great spot as noted above. 150/person + 50 for kids and +50 for elec. per night.
it was 30 amp but our plug didn’t match. Loved the pool & we were able to release leatherback turtles on 2 occasions. Ester and Victor are doing an amazing job here! And Panda, the Great Dane, is adorable!

Yes, some order in Mexico. We loved our 2 day stay here. We got lots of help and had lots of fun with Esther and Victor. We gladly paid the price to enjoy their oasis of order. The food was wonderful too. You could get very lucky with the turtles if the conditions are right. The pool was extremely nice and the wifi even worked well in the evening.

Very beautiful yes, but a little too pricey. $150/pp for sleeping in our van and $400/pp for a cabaña.

Report Check-In

Nice friendly place with high standards. Lovely grassy grounds, right onto a lovely beach. Unfortunately due to power-cut over 3 days, there was no plugin, WiFi or swimming pool available to use. This made the 150pppn a bit steep, but would be good value if everything was working properly (obv not their fault).

Pat & Nic en Rialta: Endroit très agréable et tranquille. Bord de mer, piscine propre, restaurant sur le site et tous les services compris. Wifi faible G3. Tenu par Esther une dame suisse. Section gazonnée pour les tentes ou les campers et section sable.
Sécuritaire et très bien entretenu supérieur à la moyenne des sites où nous avons fréquentés jusqu’à maintenant.
150 pesos par personne et ça vaut le coût.

As described but expensive and completely understandable. Pool 6 bathrooms , bar and restaurant, cabanas. It’s more of a hotel than campground but they are offer everything. Barely 3 G service and very tight for large rigs We stayed 1 night. The place down the road was 50$ per person with pool as well but pool was not full so we opted for this place. Got our moneys worth and headed out

Statement of the owner:
The place is located directly at a endless and lonely sand beach at the Pacific Ocean. It's absolutely quiet and save. You are welcome to have fun in the sea, or enjoy a swim in the pool. You can camp on the grass underneath huge palm trees or on on the sand. I'm as well running a turtle rescue an conservation center (legally - with license) here on my property. If your interested, I can offer lots of information and some activities - just talk to me about it.
Prices
Adults: 150 Pesos p P
Kinds (5 - 15) 80 Pesos
Power for A/ C for your RV will be 50 Pesos per car extra. Power for light, fridge etc is included.

Special offers for long term and bigger groups available. Just contact me (+52 741 101 30 19).

I'm happy if you bring your dog along, but of course it's clear that you take good care of it, and you're responsible for it.

We stopped in here on our way north. Seems like a very nice place to sit and relax for a few nights. The surf was a little too rough for swimming but the beach was beautiful and the campground very tidy. We would have stayed for another night or two but it was much more expensive than we had expected at 540 pesos for the night with our camper van. 300 pesos for two adults plus 240 for our two kids.

La Tortuguita is a beautiful, clean campground run by a Swiss couple. Ester has been there 22 years and has created a magical spot. It is exactly as others have described. There is shade to park under. The bathrooms are very clean. The pool is immaculate. We did not have any hook ups (for aircon) but we were able to sleep with all doors and windows wide open. We were charged 300 pesos/night.

It's a great place with a pleasant atmosphere. You can camp in a very nice garden under the shade of the palm trees. Three lovely dogs and a spacious beach awaits you. Esther is a cordial, super friendly and welcoming person. Highly recommended.

This place is a hidden gem. We stayed one night and wish we could have stayed longer. Turn off Mex 200 and go all the way into the town. When you get to the fork turn right and go until you see the sign, you will feel as you have missed it as you start to get further from town. There is a hotel/site called Tortuga but that is a different place. Look for the full name of La Tortuguita. The owners are very friendly. There is a restaurant, bar and a pool. The owner has three very nice dogs that love to play. They also nest the turtle eggs on property and you can see the release into the ocean. Heads up the coordinates are correct for this post however our gps sent us right at the El Papayo arch, don't go that way stay straight.

Wondefull place, nice owner, pool, restaurant. 190 peso/ person, breakfast included. Large and high rigs cannot enter the premises because of low hanging branches. But you can park your RV alongside the fence, directly at the beach and enjoy all the amenities.

Excellent beach side camping for tents. Owners where polite and helpful. very quiet area.
