Latest Check-Ins

I do not recommend this place to anyone!! From the road we saw a sign that said "Hidden Beach", we went to look, it was 6 pm and we got to the beach after passing an open gate, we parked, we didn't see anyone and we went to see the beach. Suddenly a man appeared out of nowhere, and asked us if the van was ours, and then told us that we had to pay him 50mxs just for entering his property. We told him that we only wanted to see the site and very aggressively he insisted that we had to pay. We told him that we were not going to stay and it did not seem fair to us to pay just to look. He threatened us that in the US it is allowed to shoot if an intruder enters your property and because we were Spanish he insinuated that we were complicit in killing the Mayans, and that he was Mayan and resisted.
In Cuyo there are good options to camp near the beach.

Report Check-In

This place is called Playa Escondida. There’s a hand-painted sign indicating this place when you first some time the gate at the Cuyo/Colorados dirt road. Then, about 10 mins slowly down the bumpy dirt road (4wd not necessary), the diets turn off to the right you’ll see another hand-painted sign. Then come to a small parking area. There’s a rag-tag bar and a few palapas.

The was a sign playa el culo at the turnoff and the place itself (200m down the road) is fenced off. Nobody was there and all the buildings are run down, but we didn't try to camp here as you would have needed to open the gate yourself and let yourself in. didn't look like people want you to do so.

Report Check-In

Narrow road. Drove down from Las Coloradas and the road was extremely tiny, even for our small RV. Wouldn't recommend a big rig through here. Sandy and rocky.

Report Check-In

Gate was locked when we past, kept going to El Cuyo. Plenty of other spots a further down heading to las Colorado’s

Report Check-In

We wanted to stay here for the night, but the gate was locked at 4pm when we arrived. Don‘t know why and how long it will be closed.

Drove further to los colorados on the narrow road, not very fun but duable in our sprinter.

Report Check-In

the first two descriptions are total correct.
the road ends here, we removed the soft sand and made us a way to the two palapas even for our heavy e350 2wd.
there's a lot of garbage at the end of the road. but the beach is ok.
the Marine waited at the beach in the morning. very friendly. they just said hello, it's no problem to stay here for a few nights.

the road is narrow, but definitely doable with a no highclearance 2wd. the bushes made no scratches. the Marine was even with a way bigger truck here.

Report Check-In

Forget it with a car wider than 1,70m. The bumpy track is very narrow and you will have a lot of scratches from the branches. We had to return half way and it was no fun with our sprinter!!

Best place to camp in El Cuyo! Turquoise water, nobody around, we felt back in Baja California! A bit trashy but mostly plastic. You can have some shade from the trees and there is a palapa on the beach. We saw dolphins twice really close from shore. We stayed 3 peaceful nights here!
