Something not right?

Description

Hotel and campsite. One of the best tent camping spots we found in Bolivia. Grass, a fire ring and a covered common area with power. Vehicles have a "reasonly flat" spot available close to the hostel area, just within wifi coverage, but right at the entrance of the hostel and kind a walktrough your camper van. Not to recommend for overlanders.
Lots of bugs, but blissfully warm temperatures relative to La Paz. The restaurant is reasonably priced and has a good reputation for German food. The surrounding property is huge, and is dotted with cabins that sleep 3-8 people. At the end of a narrow dirt road with no good turn arounds. Big rigs may have trouble. When wet, you probably need 4x4.

Latest Check-Ins

Checked out the place today.

It is not easy to reach, don't try with big rigs or old vans without a lot of horsepower. Not really 4x4 needed but steep and narrow as well as a bit muddy.

There is only one parking which is more or less leveled but directly at the entrance and at a quite shady place.
Restaurant and pool area looked relaxing. Bathrooms were ok but not great.
For overlanders with cars I wouldn't recommend this place.

45bob per person for camping, there is just one (with the help of a nearby rock) flat spot for parking though. A bit tight, but we managed to open our rooftop tent, no problem with that.
Wifi works 30% of the time, but I would not expect too much - it's yungas after all. Showers nice and hot. Overall a good stay for a night or two :)

We would not call this a level parking spot. It is VERY hard to level out a car. We can not recommend this hotel for overlanders who want to sleep in their car. (But the hotel is beautiful)

Friendly hostel with a lawn for tents (not accessible by car) and a few parking spaces juist outside for vehicles. No level places. Extremely steep access road: we had to use low range to climb up. BOB 90 (2 adults, camper).

Not worth driving up this steep road, to find this place what is not recommendable for overlanders sleeping in their own car. Not level, guests walking almost trough your car...
90 Bol for the two of us is by the side much to much for Bolivia.
We can not recommend!

As others say... Fantastic place. They even got a small pool at the edge of a plateaux and a yoga studio :)

But yeah, the WiFi is next to useless and gets turned off in the evening when the reception closes.

And the mattresses in the dorm rooms where a bit worn out.

And no bugs to speak of when I was here.

Edit: Ok, do the last night I was there, I got a bit bitten :-/

Very nice place indeed.
Road up here can be a bit slippy after rain.
45B
Wifi available but doesn't really work.

Share room 70bol, good although pricey food. Wifi ends at 8pm, it's not very good anyway. No level parking really . Good beds

Lovely campsite. Parked in bay one but as we were out of season, not too many people passed the van. 80 Bob a night for three or more nights.

We stayed in a room here, the Verde room, for 120 bol per person with private outdoor bathroom and hot shower. The grounds and views are gorgeous! Restaurant is very good. We opted not to camp in our rooftop tent because there is only one level parking spot (spot #1) which is not private - it's right next to the entryway to reception and the restaurant. We felt we'd be in the way here, but enclosed rigs would be ok. While we were there (2 nights), Wifi was very slow. Water is potable since its from a spring. Great for filling up water tanks.

Just one flat spot for parking- end with an wildcamp on the way back 2 town

Just checking in again to be able to edit details...

We stayed in a cabin, but the upper park ground is a nice spot for smaller rigs. No height restrictions though. It's quite steep in some places.

Nice place to rest for a few days or walk around. Space for bikes and carpark, swimingpool and internet.

Top place for moto travelers with tents. Two nights was not enough. Recommended.

- 40 BOB per person
- nice hosteria offering rooms and tent camping (unfortunately far from the parking lot and not accesible by vehicle)
- good restaurant serving local and German food (pretty good, but expensive for Bolivia)
- slow wifi (3G powered) and for some reason available only between 9am-8pm
- hot showers
- large tropical garden on a hill
- two nice pools
- common area with seating and hammocks
- campers have to stay at the parking lot - we were on the top one, parking spot #1, right next to the entrance - almost level, you can catch wifi here
- only for smaller vehicles, very limited space, would be hard (or impossible) to turn around here with a larger truck and the access road is long and rough

One of the best camping spots we found in Bolivia. Grass, a fire ring, a covered common area with power and the best wifi we found in Bolivia. Lots of bugs, but blissfully warm temperatures relative to La Paz. The restaurant was reasonably priced, but we never tried the food.
