We walked in with out dog and a couple of very aggressive dogs bite him. so be careful !!!

Description

200p for camping.
50p per shower (propane).

Good restaurant with close to US prices. Friendly staff.

There's a small sandy patch near the restaurant or a larger beach in front of an empty hotel across the streambed from the restaurant. Beach isn't super nice - rocky with sand mainly above the high tide line. Highway dips down in this bay and truckers use air brakes both ways, internet near the restaurant and flushing toilet with tap.

Super cool place to camp with Starlink, cold beer, and good food. Flush toilet and hot shower.

As others have mentioned, not the best beach and noisy trucks. That said, internet has been almost flawless so I spend a few days and knock out some work. I paid 200.00 in Feb 2024.

Fantastic spot , new gringo owner Matt is a great guy. Note that previous issues with dog attacks are not true anymore with new ownership no longer a problem. FAST starlink internet, was able to work remotely on video meetings without any issue at all. Less people then other beaches which is nice, mountains on the west protect from much of the wind which affects the Bahia. Good restaurant right on the beach, 200p. highly recommend!

Everything north and south of here was super busy but only a couple other truck campers overnight. There's a small sandy patch near the restaurant or a larger beach in front of an empty hotel across the stream from the restaurant. Beach isn't super nice as it's pretty rocky with sand mainly above the high tide line but it was nice and quiet, internet near the restaurant and and flushing toilet with tap.

Otherwise there wasn't much to see from the staff.

Stayed here for a night. 200 pesos to sleep in my 4runner. Restaurant looked nice. I went in to get food at 5:30p but the kitchen was closed for the evening. The road noise at night from the semis was a bit loud because the campground is down in a bowl from the highway.

Free wifi, although it worked then didn't.

200 pesos and we had the beach to ourselves.

Restaurant/Bar on the beach. Could probably camp as well.

Seems like a regular spot for some of the long term RV folk in the area.

Lovely quiet spot to camp. Dog friendly. 100 pesos/person. Great place for a margarita and the owner Marco cooked us up an amazing dinner of sea bass and shrimp. He, Miguel and Olivia were so friendly and fun to hang out with. In the morning we got to watch dolphins and whales frolicking in the sea.

Love this place! Was on my way from “last free beach” camp spot south to another free one further down from here, when I decided to turn in here and check it out. So glad I did! FAST Wi-Fi at restaurant that I can use from camp spot directly on the beach. Perfect location for kayaking, saw tons of little fish and a big ray, so I bet the snorkeling would be awesome. There are way less flies, fleas, bugs etc here and smells way better(not like the beach has been used as a toilet) than north at my last four camp spots coming down the peninsula. Perfect clean white sand w some shells and rocks. Great view of mountains all around. 200 pesos to camp in my van. Worth every penny!!! Flushing toilet. Shower was weak but honestly I couldn’t be happier after the dirty trek down these last several days so I made due w the cold water/crappy pressure and thoroughly enjoyed it. Super happy to be here and def recommend!! Oh, and everyone is so nice!!! Just a few locals working, and one other tent camper by me, really quiet and peaceful. Great warm vibe.

Nice mellow spot with a great restaurant/bar. Tent camped for 200mx under a palapa in front of the old hotel. (Bring earplugs, truck noise)
Shower and bathroom were great. Will be back!

Had delicious burgers and fries, a marg and a beer for 570 pesos. Definitely pricier but worth it. Nathan was there and we purchased WiFi for 50 pesos. Showers seemed to be cold while we were there so we didn't try.

Veryy Very friendly Staff, owner Nathan grew up there and is very friendly and kind. Let us pay with PayPal or selle so I didn’t have to get cash. he also gave our kids toys and didn’t mind our noise. Delicious fresh fish burger, a little pricey but super yummy! Pool table at restaurant and beautiful beach access. Thanks guys enjoyed the conversation with expats at the bar

Friendly and quiet. One other couple staying here. Fresh yellowfin tuna at the restaurant. No hot showers

Charming place to camp and very friendly company. Hot showers were readily available and we even had a piece of frozen key lime pie at the restaurant. The cove is so beautiful but the highway noises echo at night, so bring some ear plugs. 200mex

I was the only one out there with the owner, american guy, very nice. He cooked me some fish he had caught earlier. Some food on the fly, perfect. Cool restaurant, I can tell it's usually full of life.
No wifi. Shower is 50 pesos I recall. The dog on site was super friendly, we played fetch in the water, my dog and her went along well. Slept by my van and kept an eye out for me, super cute.
Not too much wind compared to other places.

Report Check-In

Super friendly place. Felt safe and welcome. Dinner was great...el pescado a la plancha and special cucumber margarita for my bday. Wind was a welcome change after being swarmed by mosquitos and heat at El Coyote up the way. 200mex to camp. Didn’t pay for showers. Clean bathroom. Dogs are allowed but be careful of the owner’s younger dog. He fought with ours. Luckily no major damage but maybe keep eye on your four-leggeds

Really beautiful beach with great swimming and warm water. The owners were friendly and the permanent residents seemed to keep to themselves. They have really good food at the restaurant and fresh fish dishes.
There is a house for rent and rooms for rent in addition to camping. We opted for the hotel room for $50 usd but probably wouldn’t do it again.
The room was nice but the plumbing didn’t work correctly and we ended up having to use our own water to flush and wash. My partner is a contractor and offered to help fix the problem but was quickly dismissed by the maintenance man.
The electric went out in the middle of the night and didn’t come back on.
I was happy to have a break from the van so I didn’t mind really but the price was a steep for faulty amenities.
Almost everyone is an American.
They have several loose dogs on the property and one is very dominant and vocal so be aware with your pups.
She was sweet with us and our older male dog though.

The aargh bar is a nice little spot here. I got a shower for 50 pesos and hit up taco Tuesday for 40 peso tacos. They have free Wi-Fi which was OK. I camped here as well which was only 100 pesos instead of 200 because I had eaten at the restaurant. I returned the next week for a good old American style hamburger with fries and was not disappointed; it was a fresh Patty instead of some flat frozen junk.

There was no one there when we arrived late morning, just 1 lady behind the bar. She told us 60pesos each just to shower, didn’t ask how much to camp. She told us the water is imported that’s why it’s expensive. We didn’t take but later we wished we did- it’s about the last hot shower on the Bahia.

Super friendly folks who sold us some beer to go when we ran out. We paddled over from El Requeson and bought a 6 pack of Tecate and a 10 back of flour tortillas for 215 pesos. It was expensive compared to tiendas or markets but worth it when it’s the only option within walking or paddling distance from these beaches. The son was super friendly and chatted with us while we were being helped. He told us about Taco Tuesday’s 20 peso tequila shots and said it’s a super popular place to be, having over 100 people show up to party every Tuesday night. He offered us hot showers for 40 pesos and told us they have a little Inn too, though we didn’t catch the price.

Place was ok.
1 toilet stall.
Pay extra for a shower, which was essentially a hose attached to an on demand water heater but it had good pressure.
They have a bar & restaurant on site. Pretty much paying US prices.
We were the only people staying there.

Hands down the best place we have ever stayed at!! $8.50 US or 140 pesos for one night of dry camping. The area is owned by an American family who set up a hotel and restaurant with a campground. All food in the restaurant was freshly hand caught by the son who was also our waiter and chef. $17 US for 2 beers and a giant plate of fresh caught octopus, clams, scallops, stir fry veggies and rice. More than 2 people could eat! The absolute best customer service and such a breath of fresh air to find other groups of tourists doing the same drive we are! We were told we could park our Skoolie anywhere so we went down by the water next to a palapa. Water is so warm, and clean we had to go snorkeling and wow!! Incredible tropical fish and corals! Not very many waves and practically no swell so it was perfect and soooo warm! 87 degrees F. Super quiet and comfortable at night even though the highway isnt very far away. Thought it's a lot warmer than being on the pacific side, it wasn't unbearably bad, just a sticky heat. Even though there's no cell service (which is to be expected) there is WiFi that I think you need to ask or pay to use it. There are toilets that come with the price of the campsite and showers that I think were 30pesos. We felt so safe and secure here and hands down absolutely worth the $8!!!! No trash anywhere, and the restaurant is well maintained and American-tummy friendly! Can't say enough good things!Best campsite ever!!

Nice place with a causal relaxing atmosphere. The owner is very nice and friendly.

There are two places, one at each side of the river. After the season it's officially closed for construction and improvements, but I asked Olivia at the restaurant (which is closed too) and she let me camp anyway. Dry camping to the right at the restaurant is 100 Pesos. At the other side in front of the Hotel it's 200 with palapas. Payed 40 pesos extra for the hot Shower.

Nice place for small rigs. They don’t take big rigs. Had a nice semi private beach across a small inlet from the restaurant and bar. Taco Tuesday was great. Clean bathroom and a hot shower available.

The owner complains, that the campground is too cheap and there are not enough guests. Well, the meals are expensive, there is only one Toilet and you have to pay extra for the shower. There is WiFi, but you may not use it. But the place is not so crowded like the other places in this region.

Only stopped for lunch. Great fresh fish, nice view, and friendly owner from California, but it was pricey. 415mxn for two plates of fresh fish with rice and veggies, and a beer. Didn't ask about camping but the owner quoted 100mxn per night for the few rooms he has available to some Mexican tourists...not sure what the inflated prices are for gringos.

This is a great Packer bar on Baja Consepcion. Great hamburgers, taco Tuesday, and a huge party when Packers are playing. Camping is 60 pesos per person, hot showers extra, no wifi.
The resort is closed but the restaurant and camping area are fine.
Gate locks at night for security.

This place is permanently closed.

Loved this place, although it's definitely a "gringo" owned establishment. That being said, the owners definitely show the travelers a good time. Whether it be throwing an impromptu bonfire, feasting at Taco Tuesday, or just relaxing on a secluded part of the beach, I'd highly recommend Playa BV.

Camping just by the beach. Nice spot. Can be a bit windy. Internet is via Satellite and is very slow - don't think about siting on beach and checking Facebook. 60 pesos or ~5USD per person. 10 pesos per device for using internet. 25 pesos per shower. Restaurant has great food, however prices are close to what you would pay in US.

Report Check-In

we stayed here because we needed internet for Jason to work, which ultimately was why we left – PROS: Beautiful camping right on the bay, hot (solar) showers – CONS: the owners obviously hate their jobs and aren’t afraid to let the campers know it, we decided to leave when we were being blamed for crashing the super-slow internet (not to our faces, just loudly enough for us to hear) – 7 USD/night
