Very nice campground with very friendly hosts and fun dogs! Quite a noisy night in our tent from the highway traffic and passing trains, but woke up to a lovely show of hot air balloons that liftoff nearby. As reported, hot showers are off due to stolen solar water heater 😒.

As described below. $250mxn per night. Omar was completely friendly and hospitable. Stayed 4 nights, saw the piramids but much of the Palacios are closed presumably for the pandemic as are the museums. Drinking water is abundantly available. We filled our 20 gallon tanks three time but had to do it out of garafon bottles he had on site. At first we treated it with chlorine like we do all our water not RO purified but after Omar’s insistence that it is perfectly fine to drink I took his word for it. 3 days and no issues. Since someone stole their solar water heaters from the roof of the baños they have only cold showers but bathrooms are clean and supplied with TP. We stayed over the weekend and many locals came for yoga classes. The volunteer fire dept is doing rescue drills. All the folks are so friendly and kind. Hardly noticed the trains and traffic from the highway at all in the van. Great people. Recommend staying here. Oh and dog friendly too. Super place to stay.
Also Julia, Omar’s mother offered us free dinner she cooked for the yoga group in their comedora.

This place is really beautiful. Quiet at night, with toilets, hot showers, electricity and a place with tables and chairs. Such a welcoming family and a really good place to stay.

This was such a nice place to relax. The road coming in from the main road was great and big rig capable. Nice gravel road to establishment. Got here and was free ain’t Omar and his mom Juliana. Very hospitable and cost was a little high 250p/night but safe, hot showers, generous space. Planning to stay for a couple days and see the pyramids

Great place to stay about a 30min walk to the pyramids (straight line walking basically).
open during the pandemic and great infrastructure
Hot showers and large open area grass area to camp.
Mild highway noise way in the background, birds take the foreground.
Locked gates during the whole day and Omar and Julia are great hosts.

beautiful spot nearish the pyramids. outside of town so fairly quiet except some highway noise. friendly family. hot solar showers perfect for evening use, clean bathrooms and huge flat are that could hold 8-10 rigs. price is 250/rig which is okay for families, since I'm alone I negotiated to get a 3 course dinner included.

We had an incredibly nice time with Omar & Julia. 30 min. walk to the pyramids. We could park our camper during our stay in Mexico City. Highly recommended.

Good place to stop for the night. Near ruins. Omar and his mother took great care of us and even referred us to a mechanic for our car troubles. safe and mostly quiet (there are trains nearby that can be heard at times).

Great place to make a stop. We came for 1 night & stayed 5. Julia & her son Oman were very welcoming & friendly. They helped us navigate our way via public transport for a day in the city. Large, flat cut grass area to camp on. Covered area with tables & chairs for dining. Clean bathrooms, hot showers, fenced & secured. We highly recommend this place. Oman speaks English. The fresh water spring underground filled our tanks. 30 min walk to Pyramids. There is train & highway sounds, but the good outweighed the bad.
We paid 250p p/night. Wifi is free & strength varies.

Really nice place. Very clean bathrooms with HOT showers, large grassy area, super friendly hosts. The wifi isn’t great and the trains were definitely frequent during our five days but it was still peaceful. Will be returning in August to leave our vehicle while we go overseas for a couple months!

we're so happy we decided to go here. the owners are the best hosts we've had in mexico. we were able to get in with a 32' travel trailer and pickup, although it was a little tight in the entrance. the dogs were very friendly and got along with our dog. the showers were super hot, clean, and wonderful. the internet was intermittent and very slow, as usual. but seriously, the hosts make this one of the best places to stay in mexico. A+, 5*, two thumbs up.

Enormous flat lawn enclosed with a locking gate. Campers retain a key. Immaculate showers and restrooms. Descent WiFi at coveted guest terrace. A few friendly dogs on property mostly confined. But the jewel in the crown is Senora Julia she is a very gracious hostess, she assisted us with a ride to the market and a ride to the pyramid. She and her son Omar are very kind and interesting to talk with. They have a spring fed well on the property that provides delicious drinking water. Lastly, the hot air balloons are visible every morning touring the pyramids. Best campground so far.

Good place where to spend some days. The owners are very nice people. We spent here 2 nights, and we went walking to the Piramides .
If you want to go and see the piramides is a very good place where to stay.
Good hot showers and very clean Toilets.

Spending three nights here while we explore a bit. Main reason to stay for us is the beautiful reception we got. juliana and Omar are great. Couldn't be more gracious hosts. the circus space is super fun for kids. Our daughter loves it. Lovely hot showers.

Super endroit pour une nuit ou quelques jours pour visiter les pyramides (proche porte 5) et même Mexico (à 1h, prendre Autobus de Teotihuacan puis Metro). Omar le fils, la maman Julia sont les propriétaires et des personnes adorables, prêts à toujours aider. On se sent comme à la maison. Électricité, eau disponibles. Douches avec eau chaude et WC très propres. Peut vider les eaux sales du camping car. On entend un peu la route et le train n'est pas loin. Nous recommandons 100%. Prix 850 pesos pour 4 nuits

Wonderful spot. Omar and his family are great hosts and Omar even took us to a temazcal ceremony. when we went to the city Omar drove us to the bus stop and gave us a map. definitely would recommend.

The entrance to the ranch was well indicated. We arrived here at sunset and no one was home. The gate to the camping was open though and everything was clean. We installed and the owners came by soon enough to welcome us. Perfect little camping with clean bathrooms. The owners were just sweet and showed us all around the site. They are working on setting up a circus school for kids on site! My kids loved looking around the tent and trying out the rings. 200p including electric for the 4 of us. I'd highly recommend it. We only have a small van, but the entrance looked wide enough for large vehicles. We were at teotihuacan within minutes in the morning.

lovely stop for a few nights. plenty of flat space for tents or rigs. v hot showers! covered dinning area and bbq/ fire area. lovely hosts with pretty good English. lots of dogs, but quiet and friendly. near a main road but not too noisy.

Don't use maps.me to navigate in... unless you want to bring your navigator/ driver relationship to a quick end! the roads don't show up. Google maps is good! essentially it's a 2.5km drive directly away from gate 5 and directions as previously stated. 160 for a rtt & 2 people. had a great dinner home cooked for anextra 100 each. yummy!

We stayed at Rancho Viejo for two nights. The owners are extremely kind, friendly, and gracious, the grounds are immaculately kept, hot water is plentiful, and the well taken care of dogs are delightful. We felt extremely comfortable leaving our motorcycles and gear here while we visited San Juan and the Pyramids. Excellent breakfast if you would like, for a reasonable cost (the guava and tuna (cactus fruit) smoothies were amazing). Clean bathrooms, locked gate to sleep behind, and excellent people.

nice place with wonderful grass. owner are super nice people. this spot us new (2017) and they might have a few kinks to work out but I think they will do well.

showers we're crazy hot but could use some glass in the window to keep the cold air out.

we also had quite a few mosquitos invade our van.

we paid $250 pesos for 4 people for the night but they also charged us another $50 for drinking water. probably a bit much considering the location is a bit far from the pyramids.

overall though a nice relaxing spot.

This is very nice campground with great and friendly owners, Omar and his mom. Toilets are clean and showers are really hot. There are plenty of space for camp on a nice grass. You can also find a shadow. Place is secured and guarded by 5 friendly dogs. Omar's mom is a great cooker and she can cook great meals for you. We paid 160 pesos for camp for 2 people and a tent. You can also have a bonfire with provided wood. Now they have also WiFi close to the house but we also have some signal in the tent.
