Description

Parking lot directly on the river and Mex 175. 5 Minutes walk to wonderful city center. Swimming access in the river - no Krokodiles!
Good for staying overnight so we did. Relatively quiet at night - some dogs...

Went to Tlacotalpan for their huge festival. Was able to sleep here a few nights (the next door clubs were pretty loud in the evening) . Then the festival started and the police needed the parking . So we moved to another spot

Place still available.
We had a delicious fish soup at one of the restaurants overlooking the river and a quiet night here.

Strongly recommend to visit this beautiful small UNESCO town and stay over night at this place.

As described, a good option for overnight. We stayed with our roof tent and had no problem. Although the place looks safe, the police pass by during the night some times. Water available on the building beside the Secretaria de Marina. We ask the locals and they said we can use the tap.

Good free spot, next to the river and very nice village. There is a small market, with everything you need : fruits, veggies and meat... Please note that there is no shade on this spot, so can be tough when it’s hot.

grand stationnement en pierres sur la rivière. 5 minutes de marche pour visiter la magnifique petite ville bons restaurants et la place bien décorée. Demandez Victor en ville super sympa parle anglais. Nous avons été ici pour 4 nuits. Un peu bruyant le jour à cause de la route 175 mais ok durant la nuit.

Well established fair size parking spot for travelers. Nicely leveled, close to the center. We parked there in the afternoon with the intent to stay overnight. However, local farmers started around 19.00 to swim 120+ cows across the river, accessing the river right where the parking area is.....4 at one time tied to the guiding boat..... Whole venture was promissing busy night. So, after first two runs of very reluctant huge bulls, we packed up and headed for Pemex.

Great spot. Secure, quiet (Monday), breezy, friendly locals, beautiful architcutre and history. Only word of caution is the grassy area between this parking spot and the river front. I walked through this and got a nasty attack of sand flies. Turns out I'm allergic. Healing it with Gelmicin. My partner walked in the same thing with no problem. Also, we preferred this to the other iOverlander spots in town.

Tlacotalpan un pueblo fantastico, parking a 5" al centro, al lado de la comandancia de marina.

Tlacotalpan, pueblo magico, patrimonio cultural por la unesco, totalmente parecido con pueblos cubanos, una maravilla.
El parking fantàstic, gratis y sus gentes muy amigables, la comida estupenda.
