Latest Check-Ins

This is a good place. We really appreciated the large screened in common room with stocked kitchen, and really good wifi. Shower was hot, how nice! Everything was clean. We paid 20blz for two to camp and extra 5blz for electricity.

This place is great, give it a chance. The owner, Nathalie is so accommodating. We had a power hookup, she set up a router close to our camp area (we were three rigs together) so we could get better wifi - which was awesome. The bathroom and shower were clean and has hot water, toilet seat, toilet paper and a mirror. they offer coffee and breakfast for sale in the mornings. It's a short and easy walk to the ocean and grocery store. Awesome restaurant in town - no frills but SOOO good...something del mar. This is a small town, you can find it. As a bonus, place is 420 friendly and helpful. We loved this place. Horses and dogs that live here are sweet and friendly.

We spent one night in town of sartenejo then wanted Wi-Fi so we came here before continuing south. Paid 12bzd pp and 10bzd to use our AC that night. Wi-Fi was pretty good. Bathrooms were clean but men's required a bucket flush. no Wi-Fi in common room. Natalie very nice. she actually gave us a mosquito coil for the flies. They have bikes and horses for rent.

Quiet and clean campground in the middle of the jungle! She has cabanas, as well. Wifi, bathrooms, showers (w hot water!), kitchen, screened-in communal room w hammocks. Serves breakfast and dinner for extra charge. Only a mile or so from the ferry that takes you to San Pedro where you can catch a water taxi to Caye Caulker. You can leave your car on her property for only 5B/day. Excellent place!

We are not sure we found the same place, because it was awful. Rotting fruit all over was attracting tons of bugs. I got bit more in 10 minutes than in a weeks camping elsewhere. The restaurant is permanently closed. The screens in the common room have lots of holes. The place was a mess. We opted to camp at the nearby "On the Cove".

Nice kitchen and dining area, decent internet, all you can eat mangos. 10min walk to beach.

Cost: 12BZD per person per night
Dates stayed: 30 December 2014-1 January 2015
The mosquito-screened common area was a good place to relax with hammocks, tables and chairs as well as a common kitchen. There is a dedicated modem in the common area as well. The staff were very friendly and introduced us to a local guide for a tour into the jungle. They also have small cabins with and without en suite toilets. It is quiet campground and is an easy walk into town.
Internet: Yes in the common area (dedicated modem) and restaurant

Wifi in the common area now too, we parked our van right next to it and had no problems connecting from our vehicle. Price is 12bze/6us per person. Great showers, nice owners, abundant fruit trees, Mosquitos are a bummer, but the common areas are nicely screened in & have hammocks.

After a needlessly long border crossing and an even longer drive over the worst road we’ve been on yet, watching the sun set behind us, we were super excited to arrive at this beautiful hostel/campground (dry camping) – PROS: restaurant on site (we didn’t eat there), short walk into town, screened in common room with camp kitchen, hot showers, fast free wifi in restaurant and common area (was a bit slow in our rig), plenty of outlets in common area to charge your electronics – CONS: very buggy, the road out to Sarteneja is a disaster (you know it’s bad when the border agent advises you against driving on it), bathrooms are pretty grimy – 6USD/person/night

Beautiful hostel/hotel set on organic farm. Camping area next to screened in common room. Clean bathrooms, hot showers, wifi in restaurant, no electricity. 7B (3.50 USD)/person.

Price: 7B (3.50 USD)/person.

Excellent mosquito-screened common area with tables, hammocks, power and a kitchen. Super friendly owners. Wifi in the restaurant, but doesn't reach the camping or common areas.
