Description

500Q pppn
Camping El Paraiso is actually a hostel but has some place to let one or two Campers stay overnight The owner, Juan is super friendly and loves to talk about his money-collection and mayan history. We payed 25Q.p.p. The restrooms are clean and you have cold showers. If you have some foreign bills that Juan likes, you can pay with them! In the morning, before we left, he climbed up the palm-tree and got us some coconuts which he opened immediately! We liked that place because of its friendly owner, the fact that it's cheaper than El muelle and because of the beautiful garden with a mirador on top! No Wifi but a internet-cafe close by!

Report Check-In

My girlfriend and I stayed a night before driving up to Tikal early the next morning.

The host and his daughters were incredibly nice, and he was stoked to show us his collection of currencies and other interesting items. However, he doesn't speak English.

It's close to Tikal and the lake which is nice, and has rustic toilets (with toilet seats) and showers. Though if you're camping in your vehicle, the bathrooms are a short walk up the hill.

We paid Q50/night with no electricity or water. I'd probably stay again or would stay free at the lake as others have mentioned they've done.

Report Check-In

His lot is a small patch of fenced-in lawn about 200m from the lake. He wanted 50Q (one van, one guy, no holiday, no weekend). Didn't stay.
Stayed right by the lake instead (free, very scenic, great sunsets and fireflies afterwards, perfect swimming, public toilets and showers on weekends, during the week toilets "for rent" in tiendas next door).

nice two/three spot for small campers in the garden of the hostel. we paid Q75 for two persons night but it was Easter week end so may be that is why! two electric input on spot but be aware where you park....we had coconut fall on our van!the hostel and outside bathroom are 4/set of stair up. cold but refreshing shower. some hamoc too and free coconut. Juan is really nice and you need approximately 45min to access the temple of tikal. a good vegetarian 500 m on the road

nice place on grass under the coconut. Juan got crazy about some Japan bills we had :-)

We talked him about the coconuts and next morning he was waiting us with the leader for pick them up, enough for breakfast and take away.

Good spot and top friendly family!!
