Description

MODERATOR NOTE: No camping!

In front of the entrance of the National Park. Quiet during day and night. With visits of deer, birds, rabbits in the evenings and nights.
I spent three nights and two days because the Park has very good trails to cover. Trail Pailas and Waterfalls in one day and to the Santa Maria sector on another day, passing on the hot springs.
The parking is free.
Bring supplies because there is nothing to buy.
The entrance of the NP is U$15 pp.

En frente a la entrada del PN. Tranquilo por el dia y por la noche. con visitas de venados, pajaros, conejos a las tardes y noches
Pasé tres noches y dos dias porque el Parque tiene muy buenos senderos a recorrer. Sendero las Pailas y Cataratas en un dia y hasta el sector Santa Maria en otro dia, con derecho a las aguas termales.
Acá no se paga nada para parquear. Traer provisiones porque no hay nada para comprar.
La entrada del PN custa U$15 pp.

We arrived late afternoon and wanted to hike the park the next morning. We were not allowed to stay overnight in our motorhome and had to drive down to Curubandé - this place is not available anymore.

Nice place to stay, lot's of animals: deers, all kinds of bird's, rabbits.

Absolutely recommended!
It‘s actually the parking lot to the left before you enter the parking lot of the NP. We stayed for 3 nights as we felt very safe here and enjoyed nature and silence here. There were not a lot of tourist and the parking lot was completely empty after 4pm and no one showed up before 8am in the morning. There is also a security guard from 8:30 am to 4 pm and the small restaurant opens at 9am (you can use the bathrooms there but water is not drinkable from there). The NP opens at 8am and they also let you use the bathrooms and you can get drinking water from there. Bring supplies as there is nothing to buy there.
The waterfall (private property, $10 entrance fee) was closed due to Restauration work on the bridge. But the security guard told us we could anyway go for free after 4:30 pm ;) We also did Rio Negro waterfalls but think it‘s not worth the $10 pp entrance fee. We enjoyed a lot the long hike to the waterfalls in the NP as there were very few people. The main Sendero was also very interesting due to all the volcanic activities.
Highly recommended to stay here!

Report Check-In

Perfect spot to camp for the night. No facilities (and no cell service) but we were the only ones. We asked the desk if we could stay beforehand, they said it was fine and that the night guard would be aware and would watch the van for us. Felt safe and free! We parked longways but in the morning they asked us to straighten the van bc the parking lot gets so full. Definitely recommend

We camped here after enjoying the day at the park. No problems at all. We were the only ones. Cooler weather and a quiet night. No facilities or WiFi. FREE. We were able to set up for cooking as well. Recommended!
