Description

This is probably the nicest place we've stayed at in a while. It's a big property so you first need to ask at the restaurant about camping. You'll be directed to the area near the pool and hotel rooms where you can camp. Access to the pool is 25 Quetzales per person per day. It gets hot in Chiquimula so the pool is awesome! Clean restrooms, changing rooms and showers. The place is very well kept and has a very nice relaxing vibe. We used an extension cord to access the electric outlets in the restrooms. Camping was free.
Oct 2017: Entrance fee also on 10Q p.p.

We stayed here for one week. As already reported it's one of the nicest places we ever had, very pretty and clean facilities, very relaxing, very friendly and helpful staff, and excellent climate. Ample space for any kind of rig and beautiful view into the nature, but no shade for the camper.

Report Check-In

As described, this is a very nice place. Q50 for the pool, camping free (solo cyclist). Since it's the rainy season and it looked like rain I got permission to camp under a roof once the people left (9pm).
Very friendly folk. shop and fast food restaurant open until 9

Nice place as discribed. Entry from the mainroad is through Finca Los Laureles.

Report Check-In

This really is a great stop! But you have to find the entrance....

Google Maps directions are accurate. You need to turn into the lot with the entry lift gate that has ENTRADA signs on it. The man at this gate will charge you the 10Q pp and give you a receipt. You will drive toward the pool (left). Maps tried to take us on a dirt path, but stay on the gravel road. Keep going. You will see a lovely pool with bushes around it. The camping parking is on the back side of the pool (opposite reception) right next to to the shower bathrooms and a basketball court. Drive past reception and keep going counter clockwise to get there. We checked in with reception as a courtesy and so they knew that WE knew the pools cost extra. Wifi does not reach the camping area.

Pools are still 25Q pp. Electricity is 5q now.

MUST STOP!
10 qtz per person to camp, you drive round the back of the hotel so parked next to the toilets and showers (they have power points inside), we didn't pay to use the pool but it looked really nice! Beautiful grounds in a gated compound.

So happy to be here. Lovely scenic and quiet. I almost drove past and left as the gate was closed. Guy came out and asked if I wanted camping. $10Q entrance and $25Q for the pool. Paid for the pool...but as it was so hot and the pool ended up bieng very warm, I enjoyed the cold shower more. Perfect after 5 hour drive from Antigua. Cold drinks and smoothies available. Easiest place to get to so far. Good for ANY size rig. no lenght or height restrictions. Stayed here in a 25' Class C towing a car.

Keep dogs on a leash as there are farm animals running free.

Wow! The pool looks great and wish we'd gotten there a little earlier to enjoy it! Showers aren't hot (and have had the doors removed?), but truly they felt warmer than most showers with those stupid heater heads on! Enjoyable actually. 20 q entrance fee per vehicle, 25 q/person to use the pool.

Great place. There was an entrancefee also in 10Q pp. So 70 Q in total for 2 persons in a van. No hot water in the showers.

Report Check-In

Great overlanders spot. Free if you want. We arrived late afternoon and didn't want to use the pool, and didn't need electricity and there was no charge. We did eat at the restaurant as it's the right thing to do in order to keep such a great spot open to us overlanders.
This is a very relaxing, safe feeling spot and the wifi is good enough so we decided to stay a couple more night to get some work done. The pool is 25Q per person. Electricity is 50Q a car. The next days we chose to use the giant nice clean pool. It's wide enough to do some laps! There are lots of tables and chairs around the pool under shade to chill or work. This is a large ranch and sheep may pass by:) It's very quite at night. All the staff is very nice.

I spent 24 days here sleeping in my tent while waiting for parts for my motorcycle which was being repaired in Chiquimula. The whole resort area of Los Laureles is gated with 24 hours security. The staff is very friendly and accommodating and the food at restaurant Tono y Lola was excellent. Bathrooms were clean and showers were just a little on the cold side. The pool is a must. Large and refreshing. WiFi speed was a little slow at the hotel but were faster at the restaurant.

Perfect location before, just 1h drive to honduras border. As described, 25Q pp

Our best camp-spot in Guatemala so far. Clean pool (perfect for kids), quite during the week, nice toilets and showers. Internet pretty fast at the reception and the small open air cafe. You can charge your lap on both places. If you use an range-extender you can probably use the internet at your site. They didn't charged us for camping. Only 25 Q per person to use the pool. Perfect climate. Warm and dry. Less mosquitoes.

great place as everybody says
stayed 2 nights and just paid 25Q pP for the pool
would definitely come back!

Report Check-In

Agree with all other comments. Very nice place to stay, beautiful compound, nice pool area, friendly staff and clean bathrooms. Fast wifi when we were there. In the evening the pool area got kind of crowded with young people but the pool closes at 9 pm, so it was quiet in the night.

Report Check-In

Agree with all comments about beauty of the place and good restrooms and showers. Wifi was crapping out at night, but good during the day. We paid nothing for camping (don't need power). Only paid 25Q per person the day that we used the pool. Had diner at on site restaurant Casa de Mama ? y Papa ? (forgot the names of the parents). Concept: eat with your hands. The waiter brought handsanatizer though.

We came back here again for a few nights on our way west again since it was so quiet and well maintained. Only drawback was slow Wi-Fi. Paid 100q per night for two people for camping and pool access (they give you a bracelet).

Report Check-In

Please note: Restaurant told us to go straight to hotel reception. There an hombre took us around to other side of pool area to show us where to park. Camping is no longer free. We paid 25q ea to camp and 25q ea to use pool (you get a bracelet for pool use for each day) so 100q total a night for two people. Agree with comments about bathrooms. Pool is large and clean and has shade with tables and chairs. We plugged into bathroom outlets and power was strong enough to run our AC. On and off Wi-Fi but did not reach campsite without an extender. Tigo reception good.

Report Check-In

As stated this place is excellent. Pretty muddy in the parking area when it's rainy, pick your spot carefully. They now charge 15Q to plug into power. I think that's fair enough for a place that's free otherwise.

Free to camp, excellent food, best place in Guate

perfect place for Overlanders! didn't use the pool (25Q) but the restrooms were amazing. refreshing and clean. huge grassy field to park, under mango-trees.
only CON: sad animals in small cages on the property

Report Check-In

Such an amazing spot! And, yes, it's still free! WIFI, bathrooms, showers, and you can run an extension cord into the bathroom for electricity. To use the pool there is a fee of 25q each day but it's totally worth it. Everyone was super friendly. Just talk to the guys at the restaurant right after you turn onto the property about camping and they'll get you settled.

This is probably the nicest place we've stayed at in a while. It's a big property so you first need to ask at the restaurant about camping. You'll be directed to the area near the pool and cabanas where you can camp. The pool is 25 Quetzales per person per day. We stayed 3 nights and used the pool every day. It gets hot in Chiquimula! Clean restrooms, changing rooms and showers. The place is very well kept and has a very nice relaxing vibe. We used an extension cord to access the electric outlets in the restrooms. Camping was free.

really great place. We are travelling with a toddler so the animals (although in sad cages) and the playground were great. Food yummy but overpriced. Very peaceful campsite, we stayed longer than we planned

Good stop before crossing to Honduras .. Clean showers,toilets ..

Report Check-In

camped here twice on either end of our trip up to Tikal. first time was very quiet and peaceful (Monday/Tuesday nights). second time there were lots of parties at the pool and at the restaurant (Wednesday/Thursday nights) with music late into the evenings... but hey, it was free.

showers at the pool are also FREE. the bathrooms are extremely nice as well, some of the best we had in Guatemala.

the restaurant (Parrillada) is a bit pricey but the shared plates are enormous, we stretched them for 2 meals. the restaurant also does have WiFi. it won't reach your campsite but you can access if you eat there and from the parking lot in front.

the tienda at the pool also has food and drinks for a much more reasonable, normal Guatemalan price.

Report Check-In

Great place!!! Large complex with 2 restaurants, a swimming pool and more. The reason it is free (we asked) it's because the owner likes helping travelers for some reason and it has been welcoming us for years. Workers know and they tell you where to park and won't bother you at all. They don't expect you to pay or use the restaurant. Bathrooms and showers are free, if you want to use swimming pool is 25 quetzals per person. No electricity but we saw some sockets we could have used. We were tempted to stay longer but finally decided to continue our way to Honduras.

Report Check-In

Beautiful location and free camping. The bathrooms are very nice, but showers and use of the pool costs 25Q per person so we didn't use them. They probably want you to eat at the restaurant (looks delicious but expensive), but we didn't and no one said anything to us.

Report Check-In

- free
- ask at the restaurant for camping
- very nice grassy field with a lot of trees, the whole place is quite large
- there is a pool (costs extra) and some cabanas
- the bathrooms were closed when we were there, but we didn't bother to ask if there are others
- others have reported that showers cost extra, we did not ask either

Report Check-In

Very nice place to sleep in the middle of the trees and green. Best of all, FREE! At the gate to the restaurant to ask if you can camp and then they show you where to go. It is just behind the restaurant. It has cabanas and a pool (extra) costs an extra shower also, we have not required. No water or electricity, but super quiet, idyllic and free.

Report Check-In

Good to stay overnight, toilet available, otherwise not (yet) infrastructure. If you stand at the bottom, so it is quiet. Free (ate very well in the restaurant).
