Description

Fantastic finding downtown Loreto! It's small, simple but a block away from the beach and the main square. M$200 with water, electricity, dump and sometimes internet.

Advice 1 : Take shower middle of the day, it was hot. In evening, I tried at 7pm and 10pm, it was cold. I waited until midnight, it was super hot.
Advice 2 : Don't rely on internet.

Latest Check-Ins

Great location in downtown Loreto. Small but has hot showers and clean bathrooms. Parked under a huge palapa, very dark, probably nice and cool in the summer. Wifi virtually nonexistent except in office. Easy walk to malecon or town square. 2 small grocery stores heading north out of town.

when I die, if I go to hell, I'll be haunted by this shower. in 2 years being a nomad, this one was at the bottom of the list. the drain backed up instantly, dingy, and not clean. skip this one and hit Romanita instead. they're both centrally located, but Romanita is on the nice pedestrian road and looked much nicer as we walked by. the staff is very apathetic as well, definitely not kind at all. also, their office can be heard from the mens toilet and vice versa, which adds to that hellish shower vibe. plus the sink is outside the bathroom so theres no way you're gonna shave your face. I'm not usually negative. sorry. it's safe I guess. they lock the gate at 9 and give you a key. definitely hit up La Michoacana for their self made ice cream and popsicles. loreto is nice!

The place is clean and safe. No TP in the bathrooms, so carry yours with you. I dint understand the “too hot” statements about the showers?? They have cold water here, just add cold as needed to get a really nice temp!! 200 pesos. No laundry. The internet is OK by the office and fades fast 10 meters away! Nice spot for a couple of nights for a fair price. They could use some benches by the office to make catching up via WiFi a little more comfortable.

Stayed in the empty vacated 5th wheel front yard on the SE corner. Wasn’t offered until we asked Best spot in town! Too hot shower, quiet, walk to the brewery.

Simple parking lot with a few palapas. Really long rigs may be difficult to park. Showers were really hot! Toilets had seats. Charged 200 pesos a night. Nice location near town center, beach, and lots of restaurants. We were only planning on staying one night but ended up staying 2 because we enjoyed the area so much! they lock the gate at night around 9.

As described. You are also competing with visitors who bring their fishing boats. 200 pesos for secure boat parking is pretty reasonable. Boats are nice quiet neighbors.

We were the only guests on the campsite as described by others .
Wifi going on and off all the time . Shower was too hot .
Staff at reception is most interested in the big TV screen in the office .
Gate is locked at 21.00h , so we didn't need a key for the night .
But next morning , nobody to open the gate . Staff only arrived at 14.00h
We stayed a extra day , because too late to drive to our next destination.
So , ask for the key when you book in .

Small RV park 1/2 block from the water. Has wifi and hot showers.

$200mxp full hookup with cover.
Same price for dry camping or just water and electricity in the sun.
Parking lot gets filled with hotel guests. Close to everything in town. Quiet.
Showers are not hot during rush hours. Internet crashed and did not come back before morning. Locked gate at night.

excelente ubicación, A una cuadra de l playa y cercano a bar y restaurante caminando. el lugar cuenta con luz, agua, baños y duchas. pagamos 200 pesos el día. La señora de la recepción es muy amable.

Palapas and open air spaces are the same price which is pretty lame. We asked to pay less (jeep camper, no palapas) and were initially denied but then later they refunded us 50p so only paid 150p for the night. Great location a short walk to town/water. There is a craft brewery about 3 min walk away. Shower was warm enough to bear but not ‘warm’ or ‘hot’ by any means. Internet worked really good, between 5-10MB down speed but you have to be close to the office. Gate gets locked at night around 9-10pm. Had a relatively quiet night.

Reasonably priced and great location. However, every time we’ve stayed here something isn’t working (ie no hot water, no internet, etc). None of this is ever relayed to us when we arrive. The last time we stayed a woman from the office came asking us to pay when we had already paid another woman for two nights. Not a big deal except that she seemed pretty angry, spoke no English, and we had a tough time explaining that we had already paid.

Still as johnandmandi said. Dirt spots in the parking lot aren't attractive for roof-top tenters. No privacy.

NOT RECOMMENDED!!! Staff is very unfriendly and the internet connection is a joke as it barely works.

perfect spot right in town. frindly helpfull staff, slow internet, hot showers.

Stayed one night, we liked being in the heart of the town and at a reasonable rate. Shower was hot for a while.

Perfect place to stay in town. Water was hot. $200 per night.

As described. 200 pesos a night for two people. Felt really safe. Nothing fancy but the town is nice. Showers reasonably clean. Wifi worked well.

Convenient place inside the city. Got charged the same $200 pesos rate even though they gave us an uncovered open spot, unlike the rest of the area which only has covered palapa-style RV spots

Unbeatable location in the middle of Loreto. One minute walking distance to the entral plaza. We paid 200 Pesos for two people.

We didn't stay here, it was the first place we checked out in Loreto. Most campsites are permanently occupied, the few available for travelers were open dirt parking spaces, cost quoted was 100 pesos per person. The campground has a gated entrance. We checked the showers and the water was lukewarm, as expected according to management.

Fantastic finding downtown Loreto! It's small, simple but a block away from the beach and the main square. M$200 with water, electricity and internet.
