iOverlander 0.0 La Posada A small camping area is the only downside to this place. It has all the amenities we've come to appreciate, and it's only a short five minute walk into town and to the beach. Basic kitchen with a grill, although finding fresh meat in town can be difficult (except chicken). Contrary to reviews you may read online, we found management to be most helpful and friendly, and they were very upfront about pricing. Their pool is clean we, went in every day.

There is a grassy place to pitch your tents, a well-stocked kitchen and a very rustic outdoor shower. Lots of animals; cows, dogs, chickens, ducks, but it's the horses that make this place famous. The owner offers full or half-day horseback tours to the nearby nature reserve and ancient ruins. Electricity in the kitchen.

It got very cold at night, but the fire pit and absolutely amazing stars more than made up for it. The restaurant will serve meals upon reservation, don't show up expecting to be fed. Several trails, from 30 minutes to 6 days, start within a 15-minute walk of the lodge. Rooms are very expensive, owing to the remote location and the fact three meals are included.

The kitchen is basic, just a stove and a sink, bring your own pots, pans and plates. It's cold at night, but the fire pit helps. 12 soles per person + 12 soles for the RV. If you want to use the electricity, that's more 4 soles per day of use. Internet is inclused in the main price.

Your Navi should find the new way to the campground. Take care when you leave the aspahlt to the last 200m to QuintaLala. The Street has a deep water supply on the right, use the left side to the unpaved way! [Website hasn't been updated for a fair while and contact email address is incorrect.

The lamb in red wine sauce was delicious and accompanied by lots of vegetables. All the main dishes were 30 soles or less. I think their lunch time menu is an even better deal.
