Description

Here you can park to visit the Zopilote hostel/restaurant up the hill. We stayed for two nights, paying just C$30 per night to the family living here. (and we offered an additional C$20 to use the pit toilet).

Zopilote is a great place to visit! Great vibe, smoothies, juices, (vegan) food all coming from their own (permaculture) grounds. They offer free yoga, communal dinners and many other workshops.

Latest Check-Ins

Don’t stay…. Checked in and where shown camping spots close to kitchen, everything seemed fine then came back to our camp and a dog had eaten our tent, the staff basically told us it was dumb to camp near the kitchen because of the dogs…. Not looking for a handout but a sorry would have been nice…

Good is alright, organic but nothing special. Water jugs where constantly empty, not able to fill our bottles very often.

Report Check-In

We camped here $4 per person per night. We really enjoyed our first night here. The second day we came back to a giant rip in the side of our tent. We are currently talking to staff about compensating of our stay or meals, but it seems unlikely to happen. Another girl who works here said the same thing happened to a volunteer two weeks ago.

I would not recommend camping here. Find somewhere else where your belongings can be better secured. It’s a bummer because we really wanted to like this place but having a rip in your tent will ruin your trip!

DO NOT CAMP HERE

We planned on staying here for three nights, but after the first night a dog or some other creature ate through our tent while we were out during the day. It’s a big problem, since we are on motorcycles and this has been our “home” for the past four months.

The owners won’t offer to cover the cost of camping. But you’ll hear similar horror stories happening to other volunteers that live here.

Find another place to stay if you want to camp. The property is pretty but the restaurant is very pricey. Quite disappointed this happened since we enjoyed our first night here. But a ripped tent will ruin your trip, so avoid this place.

Report Check-In

Stayed here only for lunch. Food seems to be really fresh but not something special. The portions are rather small. Prices are normal. At Tuesday is pizza night. According to an employee it‘s pizza, drinking, dancing and loving each other.
You have to take a short walk to the area (about 10-15 minutes). You can park your bike on a safe place at the entrance for 1$.
