iOverlander 3826.0 Suma Samawi Hostel The signs on the front advertised camping, pizza and a hostel. The bathrooms are a bit dodgy. The water is solar-heated, and the electric shower heads don't supply enough juice to heat water in the morning, so it's only somewhat warm in the afternoon. But the price is right and the Argentinian couple who run the place are very friendly. We opted for a room because it was only US$5 more for the three of us, but you can pitch a tent here as well.

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.

More of a parking lot for overlanding vehicles, it's not the best place to pitch a tent. But it is a great place to meet other travelers and swap notes about Bolivia and Peru. Wifi is decent by Bolivian standards, and there is a kitchen above the campground that may be free to use, but we never bothered to ask. Payed 120.-/2 persons, June 2016, overpriced!

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.

It's not signed, but it is a well-known stop for overlanders. Upon arrival you need to track down the owner, Alberto or his wife Felicidad and have them let you in. Alberto may be in his workshop on the property, knock loudly on the red door number 70, or at their house which can be found around the corner at 416 Arcento Arce. Very friendly people and an excellent (and the only) place to camp in Sucre just a few blocks from the center. They also have a room for rent at the top of the A-frame common area. Update: The entrance gate is now 3.20 meter wide and no height restrictions. Internet is fast and reliable.

This works particularly well at times of year (like in May) when there is no water on the salt flat and therefore it's not as important to get the undercarriage of your vehicle sprayed with the anti-corrosion mixture.

Road 22 from Vallegrande to Ipitá is roughly 200 km but it will take you the better part of two days. It's actually a track for most of the way rather than a road. From Vallegrande you first ascend to 2500 m asl, the it's down to 1600 and up again to 2500, there ate loads of turns and hairpins, fantastic views, lush forests, mud and puddles (depending on the season), shear cliffs, tiny settlements, etc. Be sure to investigate about the conditions before you set out! There are two main obstacles to tackle: crossing the Río Grande on a very small wooden ferry (the call it "ponton") at the location of this marker), and to ford a tributary of said river a few km further on. The key piece of information is that the ferry man is not waiting for you to rock up at the river shore but lives in a settlement some 10 km north of the ferry crossing. He can be contacted by phone to make prior arrangements and negotiate the price (sorry, we don't have the phone number: we actually came up from Ipitá and we're just lucky he was at the ferry anyway …). The ferry itself carries at most 5000 kg. The fording of the tributary further south was no problem for us; the ground was reasonably firm and the water was at most 40 cm deep. After the forfeit it's another 60 km to Ipitá with some narrow bits (we were 2 m wide and 2.8 m high). You will head up to 1100 m before dropping down towards Ipitá. Overall going is slow due to track conditions but feasible even during drizzle like we had it some of the way. Apart from the ferry crossing where you as the vehicle owner assume full responsibility over your vehicle we felt both secure and safe all the way. The reward was to experience a thoroughly unspoilt piece of Bolivia and some beautiful and spectacular landscape.

From here it's 7 km / 20 min. down a sandy track (a 4WD was necessary due to patches of soft sand when we visited) to the bottom of the dunes (the biggest one is maybe 30m high) where you are allowed to camp wherever you like! Ask the guardaparque at the entrance for directions. Easy to find level spots. No shade or useful wind protection. Apart from some picnic shelters at the western foot of the big dune there are absolutely no facilities. However, there is a resort that offers formal camping inside the park, about 500m before you get to the dunes, but it seemed closed that evening. Entrance fee which includes camping by the dunes: 10 Bs per person. iOverlander Parque Regional Lomas de Arena Campground user 400.0 Palmasol Petrol Station They wouldn't fill our tank (not for the locals' and neither for the foreigners' price of 8.80 Bs) but the lady advised me to buy a jerry can at the same street corner (20 liters, 20 Bs.), then she filled that for us 5 times for the local price of 3.72 Bs. This was after being denied diesel at 4 other places on the 4to anillo of Santa Cruz. So it did pay off well to buy a jerry can although it's utterly ridiculous to fill a 300-liter tank from a jerry can right next to the diesel pump! Plus we spilled some and it was back-breaking, too.

They offer expertly guided wildlife, birding and river tours and great food. Accessible by car only in the dry season,The place is a favorite weekend destination of the people from Trinidad but they hardly stay for the night when the park is almost entirely yours.Note that there is an entrance fee to the park, however, there is a special package for overlanders who camp in their own truck (no tents): BOB 50 per person per night if you take the lagoon tour by boat for BOB 100 p.p. during your stay (which lasted 1.5 hours for us and was well worth the money because we saw loads of different birds, crocs, Efrem even tried to find an anaconda for us).We loved to wake up in the mornings and listen to the distant "thunder" of the howler monkeys.

Definitely more aimed at tent camping but we could park the car on the small parking lot in front of the gate at the street (sand path, no traffic) and use the facilities inside. Nice grassy field with sitting area and BBQ, good bathrooms, swimming pool, very friendly family who owns the camping. We could even plug in electricity with our very long extension. Just follow the signs on the highway which say Pasalo Bien San Pedro - camping 10 km (actually it is 13.5 km from the highway). It's a rough road but easy to drive when it's not raining. The first kilometers are flat but "corrugated sheet" (not sure if you can say that in English), the next are tight curves and quite steep slopes, the last are flat but rough terrain. All in all perfectly fine without 4x4 and we think medium to big rigs can also manage when they are adventurous and not too long. Oncoming traffic could be a problem but we didn't meet a single other car. 10 BOB per person. A hidden gem.

We decided to turn around and walk. But with dry weather it is suitable for all kinds of cars (bumby road though) or you go anytime with your 4x4. She has a really nice property in the rainforest. The family has an Amish background but is really open minded and we were surprised to have such a good talk with them. Normally she offers a 4 days stay but you can stay just for one night (like us) or as long as you want. Price is 300 p.P/night including breakfast, lunch and dinner.

You can also visit waterfalls (one way 2,5 hours) or a lake inbetween the mountains. We also went "fisihing" in the fishing ponds to get our fish for breakfast.

Him and his mechanics found (and fixed) things that were previously undetected by many other mechanics (both in Bolivia and Chile). After we left he followed up with us to make sure everything was OK on the road. If it were at all possible, he is the only mechanic we would go to in South America and we cannot recommend highly enough.
