Description

Lovely spot. Continue on track past restaurant tinajas to find quiet spot on grass surrounded by trees and the lake with volcano view all for free. Sunset and sunrise. Caution on track as few deep pot holes. Ok if dry for 2wd van.

Latest Check-Ins

We ended up staying here for four nights. And for three of those nights we were joined by other overlanders. It is a popular wildcamp and we can see why. As previously described, beautiful view of the volcano, pleasant warm waters to swim in and even a bin to drop your trash. We were there over the weekend and there were very few locals dropping by- all encounters were friendly.

Stayed 2 nights here, really peaceful and calm. Rainy and windy but just in some moments. Careful for the road if you're not 4x4. We manage but careful.

Nice spot for camping. quiet but during the night a bit windy. really nice restaurant 300m away. a bit expensive but they also have cheaper (from 5000 C) options.

Place as described. Perfect for one night. Very calm, the trees offer shade and a small protection from the rain and wind but since we sleep in the 4x4 it is not a problem. Easily accessible during dry season. We definitely recommend this place for wild camping!

great place by the lake. the short track from the town is easy, it's a bit steep in the town (gravel roads). no protection from wind. water level varies based on dam so watch out for soft edges and don't park too close. a few locals arrive during the day. great views.

Beautiful spot by the water. Place to swim in Arenal and can watch the sunset and sunrise in peace away from the hoards of tourists. A few people drove up to see the sunset but left after. The road to it as mentioned is potholes and steep.

awesome remote spot, could easily fit a few rigs in here. very exposed so we had to leave early in the heavy winds and rains.

Report Check-In

Very isolated little space accessed by continuing past the restaurant. We managed it in our 2WD in rainy season, a few massive pot holes but easily driven around. In order to even get to the restaurant you have to drive up a really steep unsealed hill, would have worries me if it had been raining. Beautiful views of the volcano in the morning.
