200p per night for a car and two people. Very basic facilities, but nice and secluded grassy area. Lovely howler monkey sounds are included.

Report Check-In

Other accounts accurate as reported. Very nice spot! Lots of ticks and mosquitoes so take necessary precautions. If 200 pesos for a camper van is too much then stay at the Pemex down the road as this is the only decent spot around. You get what you pay for.

Great place! It is exactly what we would expect when camping in a “nature reserve.” Large grassy area cleared for tents and campers surrounded by the reserve. Simple clean outdoor shower. Toilet has paper. We would come back. Arrived at 4:30. No one was at the metal gate so rang bell and waited. A little boy on bike came down on bicycle and we followed him about 5 minutes into the reserve. Great family. Beautiful camp. Hope to return.

we arrived early afternoon and had the same strange experience as mentioned before, someone in the house near gate we couldnt see asked directly for 200peso. As we found out the daughter and not yet ready for a career in hospitality. Her father however made up for her, and did all to make us feel welcome. spend 2 nights here. unfortunately our dog got attacked by the owner s pitbull the morning we left. this very agressive dog wouldnt let go of our labrador Luna. i managed to get Luna loose by hitting the pitbull. the owner apoligized and we didnt have to pay for camping. however we wont return here on our way back

Nice place! Very basic and perhaps a little strange at first but had a good and safe night sleep. Was a little hard to find. the location marked on iOverlander is actually a restaurant right at the main road. To the right of this restaurant is a dirt road leading back up to a closed gate. Just open the gate, turn right and you will see signs for camping. 200pesos/night for a campervan with two people.

simple campsite with cold showers and toilets. very basic but safe place to spend the night. 200mxn / night for 2 people in a camper.

Report Check-In

Spent 2 night here for 200 peso pero night with two persons. Met very friendly volunteers who camped there as well with their kids. We had fresh coconuts together and howler monkey were all around us. One day a family of howlers got really close to the campsite and did some posing for some great pictures. Close to the campsite are some small stores and an elderly couple selling tortillas, eggs and some snacks. Very friendly locals.

Trails in the forest are also in good condition. We loved this place after the tourists filled Palenque, if you like nature come here and enjoy the place.

Report Check-In

Grassy ground, enough space for several Camper, RV, tents. In our opinion nice campground, but bit pricey for what you get, couldn't negotiate, paid 200 pesos, no electricity, no wifi, no telcel signal, little noise from the road, water didn't work until we found someone who came to fill the tank. Very basic toilet and shower, bad maintenanced. Strange situation at the entrance gate. Someone behind the door (which we couldn't see) asked us to pay for the Campground before entering the front gate. She accepted that we're going to pay later at the campsite.

Lazaro was very welcoming. Set up the water for us as we were the only ones there. Road noise is there, but not too bad. Safe for pets even though close to the road which was our main reason for choosing it. Great stop off if passing through. 200p for us for the night. 3G signal.

A natural area that conserves part of the jungle in its more than 25 hectares. It has ample space for large caravans, they charged us $ 250 pesos per night but we negotiated volunteer work and decreased the price per night, the UMA environmental management unit is dedicated to the preservation of white-tailed deer, peccary and beekeeping, it has trails that can be walked, the owner allowed us to enter with our pet on the condition that it be kept on a leash so as not to interfere with wildlife, you can see birds, sarahuato monkeys, iguanas and some larger reptiles, the family is very nice and we feel very integrated and safe.

We stayed at this places for one night. There is a sign on the road you can’t miss. Nice secluded place with water and dump station but not easy to get to it. Electricity is available. Highly recommend. Monkeys are noisy in the morning and evening only. Be aware of ants. We bought honey from the owner which was very good.

Report Check-In

We spend a night here on our way South. More than grateful to have had the pleasure to be there, camp is run by a family and it was great to support them in these tuff times. Also they have bees, so you might ask for some honey, we didn’t as we left early before we see them... The place is great and silent and you can use the WhatsApp number, we did.

Nice place in jungle setting as described. You can hear road noise however it’s very quiet at night. Friendly hosts. There are multiple entrances however the main entrance now is a little east of the location provided at 18.60196, -90.70121. Here they have a red sign that says “camp” and as you approach the gate there is bell you can ring for assistance on the side of the building. You can also use the WhatsApp number for Don.

Don Lázaro +52 1 982 104 2959 wpp! He was so kind and helpful with us and the place is just magnificent, a real jungle camping! Bathroom&shower very basic but clean.

Report Check-In

This place is indeed currently open;) Its a bit deceptive from the road- there is an austere black gate with wooden shack next to it which all looks a bit derelict.... Turns out this is the gate leading to an entire community that lives down the road. Luckily for us someone was in the shack when we banged on the gate, and they let us in and directed us to camping. The chap that runs the campsite followed us down on his motorbike and checked us in. 200 pesos for two in a camper. We rang to check if they were open and got an answer machine message that the mailbox is full.
Place is magical- just take care if you go walking on the tracks. i got nipped by a dog near the cabanas so suggest you take a stick!!

We agree with the other comments on here. Beautiful location in the jungle, and we had some great wildlife sightings. Beautiful flowers as well and lovely little nature trails to explore.

But it is definitely buggy as one would expect. And if you shine your flashlight on the grass at night and see a bunch of sparkles, those are wolf spider eyes. (They won’t hurt you, but if you have some arachnophobia beware).

Bathroom is clean but basic. Shower is a shack with no real curtain or door. Was told Low level electric - only good for laptop and cell phone charging - but there is a dump station.

We planned to stay two days but only did one as we were ready for some laundry and electric hookups.

As I’m a solo traveler I felt a bit weired arriving at the gate... no-one there and I didn’t felt the urge to enter alone so I looked for another camping...

Convenient place on the road to Calakmul. beautifull except that the camp is very close to the road, and there is many passing truck at night.

they charge us 150 pesos per night for two person in a van. a little bit expansive.

Report Check-In

Nice spot, arrived at a gate with a phone number to call so beware if you don’t carry one.

The price was fine (100 pesos for 2 in a van plus 2 dogs). Toilet viable (seat and paper included, seat too small for toilet though).

The only problem was the ticks. I found two crawling on my arm after being here about an hour sitting under a tree which prompted a very thorough checking of the dogs and turned up 8. Some are very small, about the size of a pin head.

Nice place with trees around a lawn. Raining heavily when we arrived so did not have the chance to use the shower. Toilets are very clean. Very quiet at night. Paid 100 pesos for 2 people sleeping in car

150 pesos pour 2 nuits (en négociant) en Van pour 2 personnes. En pleine jungle, arbres fruitiers, de l’ombre et du calme, il y a une dump station et de l’eau. Toilettes et douches extérieures en pleine nature !
Possibilité de faire un feu de camp, on peut se promener le long du « coin détente » et observer les singes hurleurs, les iguanes, beaucoup d’espèces d’oiseaux et au fond au point d’eau des crocodiles.
Le long de la route, tournez au panneau blanc Camping écrit en rouge, une petite piste s’engouffre sur 200 mètres dans la jungle. Ouvrez vous même le portail, les hôtes passeront plus tard s’il ne sont pas là.

Surprising and wonderfull spot on the jungle. Own by a very friendly family. Don't know how to change for the real name that is: "Casados Ranch, camping and UMA". Watch for the camping signs. There is 2 entrances. Basic but very clean bathroom (with paper and seat) and shower. Cheap: 150 pesos for our camper truck (2 adultes, 3 children). Owner said that the second night is free (2x1). He also said that he can make special price (cheaper) for backpackers with just a tent. Howling monkeys, wild life and even small crocodille. We love it!

Very rustic campground. Easy access when it's dry, I won't try if it's a rainy day. Cheap : 150 pesos for a family of 4 but there's nothing ! No water when we came.
Noise from road trafic and many mosquitoes here.

This place is actually sign-posted as Casados Rancho Cabanas and Camping. The facilities are basic: one electric pole, one water site and a dump station which require moving your rig if you needed all three. The jungle setting is very pleasant and the host/family were helpful and friendly. This place is good for a break in driving across the Yucatan peninsula. The price is right too - 100 pesos per night. Be very careful with the entrance as one leads only to the cabanas. If you go in the wrong one you may have trouble backing out. Perhaps best to recce on foot.

we turned into a place a few hundred meters further on the road which also said camping but turns out to have a special going for 120 per 2 hours. the gate attendant just looked at us and pointed us to the plot down the road. we paid 150 for family of 4.

Basic camping. However my rig is 32 feet. And easy access to the camping. Payed 100,- pesos for rig and 2 persons incl electr.

Report Check-In

We stopped in to check this place out and it's not big rig friendly. There was a van in there but for a big rig the entrance is problematic with a telephone pole leaning over the driveway with a palm tree on the other side. Also halfway down the driveway there is a 90 degree turn which might be fine up to 20' long but any longer and you're not going to make the turn due to trees and fence posts.

Great camp spot. Lots of little trails to walk around and get into nature which was great for our pup. Paid $150 pesos for 2 adults. We heard the howling monkeys just as the sun set. Unfortunately, no other animals were seen but still a wonderful place.

Report Check-In

200 pesos for two adults, two kids in our VW Bus. Paid one gentleman and later in the evening another guy came asking for money, when I told him we already paid there was no problem.

Good cell reception with data. Heard the monkeys, lots of birds, hawks, but we didn't see boars or deer. Lots of biting ants everywhere, maybe survey before you setup camp.

Note that, if headed West, you'll see the ranch others are referring to here. The entrance to this wildlife refuge is very shortly after, with a white sign and red letters reading CAMPING. Follow that to a closed gate and you'll see the sign with the Centeo Conservación de la Vida Silvestre written on it. Bathrooms were very clean, though basic. Even had toilet paper, but safest to bring your own. Didn't try showers but, though rustic, they were clean, too.

Nice jungle-garden with banana, orange and lime trees. Toilets and primitive showers did not work because there was not water. We saw some monkeys in the trees after sunset. There is some noise from the near highway all night.

Schöner Platz für eine Nacht, viele Brüllaffen zu hören. Die Besitzerin wollte zunächst 150 Peso. Wir fragten für was (WC dreckig, kalte Dusche im Freien, keine Elektrik...)? O.k. Wir sollten jetzt nur 100 Peso wie die Anderen bezahlen.

Very quiet camp for 150mx. Follow dirt road off highway until you reach a closed gate. Open and follow signs for camping. A nice lady showed up a few minutes later to show us electrical plugs and collect $. Bathrooms aren't so bad, the lady cleaned up a little before leaving us for the night. Didn't try the showers.

Report Check-In

Appears to be the same place as the ranch next door on iOverlander. Nice mowed grassy area. Toilets are so bad you might as well use the surrounding woods. Noone was here when we arrived, so we opened the gate and let ourselves in. A nice lady came by an hour later to ask for 100 pesos per vehicle, we had two vehicles/4 people. Wee bit of road noise but not bad.

Superb location in the Jungle. Great wildlife: The monkeys fed on the mangos above our car, wild boar, deer and other animals close to our site. The shower building is just a wooden shack in the camping area, we didn't dare to have a look at the toilets.
