Something not right?

Description

A drive through the town of Pixvae leads you to the end of the road where you'll find this free campsite. Completely wild camping. No bathrooms, water, electricity or wifi. Great place to unwind and unplug and enjoy the sound of the ocean. You park on the beachfront. There are not a lot of provisions in the town and very few restaurants. The locals are very kind and welcoming. There's a dive shop nearby and this area is supposed to be the best diving in all of Panama. Within a 25 minute boat ride you'll enter the Coiba National Park that is home to large whale sharks and tons of big marine life. The town is one road, practically on the beach. There are hostels around and the road to the town is currently being paved. Eventually it will be a smooth drive, albeit really steep and windy. 4WD is necessary if you want to leave the town to help you get up the steep terrain, it may not be as much of an issue once the road is paved bit eight now, low gear is a must.

we slept here one night, the road is now completed paved, but it's very steep l, a trucks/ big rig wouldn't be able to get here. We parked at the end of the city, but I wouldn't call it super wild, there is a house on the side, a parking lot on the other side and a restaurant at the end so you cannot go any further.

Some trash, but not too much, the river is really close and there are boats that goes to better beaches close by, the boat costs 60 dollars, we waited to come more people to share a boat, so we paid for 2 people 15 dolar, it went to la cueva and doña juana.

I believe it is only worth to come here if you're going to do a boat trip. A guy told us that it is possible to reach the peach doña juana by trail, don't know if it does exist.

We also saw a camping site at the begging of the beach very nice sunset!

Don't miss the view point on the road!

no +movil here (internet)
