Passamos uma noite no local para descansar pós fronteira. Pagamos $5 dólares por pessoa. Estávamos em uma barraca de teto e gostamos bastante do lugar. A música fica até as 18h e há pessoas aproveitando piscina e o complexo, mas logo após as 18h ficamos sozinhos no local. Há piscina, banheiro ok porém as duchas são abertas e frias então tem que tomar banho de biquíni. Ha bastante espaço, redes para descanso e mesas com guarda sol. Para nós, o único ponto negativo foram os mosquitos. Havia muitos mosquitos.

Great place to stay a night before crossing the border to Peru. On a sunny day you can enjoy the pool. The owner is very kind, he gave us also some bananas for breakfast. There is a lot of space to put a tent. Only prepare for the mosquitos at evening/night. There were plenty because of the lakeside. Enjoy your stay!

very nice owner. If you come with a dog, be careful, some huskies are not friendly to strange dogs. Ours was immediately tried to bite, so it was very difficult to move around the property with a dog. Pool is ok, there are no guests after 6 p.m. We couldn't test the restaurant because it was closed from 5 p.m.

We stayed here for 24h and paid 5$ pp. Pool was okay, owner very friendly, let us fill our watertank 240 liters for free. Also gave our daughter lits If bananas. We liked the Hammock Areas! Not many Moskitos and WiFi Signal till the Truck. ☀️

Spent 1 night here and to be honest we wouldn’t have stayed longer. It was not too bad but the mosquitoes ate us alive and the toilets/showers were not too clean.
Ok for a stopover and if you don’t have to leave the Van/Motorhomes for toilet or something else. Because everytime you open the door you let 20-30 mosquitos in. We both collected ~200 bites together.
Our dog wasn’t too happy either because their dogs just had puppies and were really aggressive towards our male dog.

Payed 10$ per 1 night with 2 persons, 1 van and 1 dog.

the main road is currently under construction. To enter the property there is a big speed bump that we could not pass with our 24 foot RV because the chassis touched. so we slept at the border.

We agree with all descriptions below, still $5pppn (only adults, our 3 kids were free). Royer and his family are very kind, they do their utmost to make you feel at home. Royer now wants to build spots with shade for rigs and plugs with 220V electricity. Be careful if you park your car near the unfinished concrete building. There are tons of nails on the ground (I kindly asked Royer to remove them as soon as possible).

Balneario avec emplacement plat et un peu d’ombre. 5$ pppn avec électricité, douches, toilettes et wifi. Tuyau d’eau à disposition pour remplir le tank. Piscine pour les plus courageux. Propriétaire très sympathique. Bar avec cervezas abordables. Endroit fermé. Chiens acceptés. Les chiens du propriétaire sont (hélas) enchaînés toutes la journée, et libérés la nuit. Ils sont gentils. Présence de petits chatons. Endroit parfait pour s’apprêter à passer la frontière.

Holy Shitte!
Do not, I repeat DO NOT, leave your vehicle unless you’re wearing minimum 2” of skeeter repellant! This public service announcement comes from us - who have been living on a mosquito marsh in South Carolina for 30 years!
Someone please check on us tomorrow LOL

Good place to rest some days. Be carefull, the energy sometimes less then 90 V (especially on the beginning of the nigth). To plug energy you need at least 40m cable. Owners very friendly. No problem to Big Rigs. 5 US$p/p.

As others have said, nice friendly place. We would have stayed more than one night, but very loud music non-stop from about 11 am to 6 pm is more that we want to expose ourselves to.

$5PP for tent camping. We pitched our tent under a palapa with electricity sockets. The pool closes at 6 so after that it is quiet. Very nice owner, made us fresh passion fruit juice. His wife was away so the restaurant wasn't open but he let us use the kitchen. Wi-Fi available. Cold shower. Bathrooms clean.

Excellent place to relax. Big pool. Nice food. The owners are a really nice people, you will feel like in family. Only usd 5 per person per nigth. Very secure place.

We were travelling two up and stayed here for one night. the owner was very welcoming and as per the other comments, the toilets were clean and the pool a great relief after a long days riding. One note.... the showers, mens are an open cubicle that looks onto the pool..... lucky for us there were no kids to scare while they swam and I had a shower! Women's shower is similar but there is an attempt to place a cover over the shower, but my wife also place her towel across as again some might find it to open ..... just a note. Also be aware that there are not allot of shops/ mini markets in the area so best to buy some food before stopping there

Awesome place! Really quiet. Everything you need is there: swimming pool, shower, kitchen with gas, dinning area, hammock, shade, free wifi, .... Highly recommended. And friendly owner. Tent friendly.

A solid option for where to stay before crossing into Peru from Ecuador. The host went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed. The wifi worked well, there was a kitchen area to use including strong propane ranges, and the cold showers were clean. There are a lot of rooster calls in the morning and it seems to be a hang out for local youth (at the pool) in the afternoons.

Make sure to check out the freaky ostriches at the back of the place. Weirdos.
