Something not right?

Description

One of the best campgrounds of our trip to date. Lots of grassy areas to pitch a tent plus a fire pit that we used nearly every night. Very friendly English-speaking staff. The camping area's kitchen was wood-fire only. We used the oven half a dozen times with great success. Internet is available in the restaurant, which serves great food at reasonable prices, but only worked a couple hours during our six night stay. Big rigs be careful on the drive in. The road is narrow and there aren't places to turn around.

Latest Check-Ins

Quite the oasis!! Super friendly owners (with such a diverse family!), beautiful grounds, and much-appreciated weather after spending many cold nights at high altitude. 30B /person, still no wifi. Take note of what others have said about the road - we're in a 4Runner so didn't have any problems. We also left our car here one day while we hiked to Laguna Glaciar. (See "tourist info" post pinned in Sorata for more info about doing the hike in one day as opposed to 3)

This is a wonderful and relaxed place to stay when you come with a tent or when you rent a room. If you come with a vehicle/campervan it should be really a small one. Either you stay around the entrance our if it is small enough (like our VW T5 Kombi, 5m long, 2m with, just fitted) you can go one level down but it is tricky to drive.
There is a track up to the village after crossing the river but you should ask for the key (gated entrance).
The owners are really friendly and helpful, the shower is hot and the food is excellent. After 5 days of driving coming from Rurrenabaque via Mapiri it is like paradise.
But: There is no WiFi and it is also not available at the close by Café Illampu. You have to go to town for that. But there WiFi is difficult to find as well.

El camino de Copacabana a Sorata es de asfalto, pero, desde la entrada del pueblo hasta el camping todo es de tierra con profundos socavones no aptos para autocaravanas ni vehículos que no sean altos. Solo llegan a la zona de camping vehículos pequeños 4x4 porque hay una gran pendiente en curva y si llueve todo es barro. Los vehículos medianos tipo van pueden quedarse a la entrada -solo hay sitio para uno-. No hay WIFI

Nice setting on the river, but rather expensive. No space for big sized overlanders. Swimming pool and beautiful garden.

Also, if you are in need of a Toyota mechanic, ask the owners here. Highly recommended! Electricity available in the kitchen. Internet was sketchy.

This is a lovely little campground. Access is however very difficult and absolutely not recommended in a larger vehicle. Even in smaller vehicles you must back down into the car park area as the turn into the drive is not possible. However this is a beautiful place to spend some time. We couldn’t stay because it was fully booked by competitors in a bicycle race – and we would have struggled to get in anyway !

Water / elec / english / hot shower / restaurant / no internet. Hike to the San Pedro cave if you have a free day
