June 15th, 2021 safe neighborhood

This is just a street, and not helpful to have as a location since it’s no different than any other street

July 2nd, 2017 Rancho Acosta (RV Park & B&B)

Worth the drive to visit the charming town and the pool at the hotel was a welcome respite after a hot day of driving. We had the place to ourselves and would recommend a visit to the UNESCO site nearby

February 20th, 2017 Upper Burnt Corral NF CG

Situated on Apache Lake in the Tonto Natl Forest. Approximately 80 sites, several with privacy. Very pretty. Great stopping point along the Apache Trail drive.

December 30th, 2016 Campo Mosqueda

Campsites are on the Rio Hardy. This is a gringo community that is popular for water skiing and wake boarding. campsites have palapas and grills. Clean/nice bathrooms but no wifi. Nice stop for bird watching. Restaurant is open on Friday-Sunday.

December 29th, 2016 La Jolla Beach RV

Bring a shovel to the beach at low tide and make your own hot tub as the water that seeps from the sand can be almost too hot to touch! Hot showers are available in the bathroom near the office. Large area, security all night, on the beach.

December 28th, 2016 Playa Salamando

a couple campsites on the beach, down the cliff from the road. paid 306 pesos. they were working on regrading the road after some washouts, so I expect more sites to be open soon. Also, the caretaker was friendly.

December 5th, 2016 Overland The World's Home - will host Overlanders with advanced notice

This is not a business, nor open to the public, but near this spot (3 km radius) is our home. We are happy to host overlanders for short stays in our guest bedroom or parking outside. We can also help find repair shops or other logistic issues on your travels. Please note that you must contact us on social media (Instagram or Facebook) with your details (people, pets, etc) and advanced notice (as much as a traveler can!). If we don't get back to you in time, maybe we can recommend some activities to do in the Scottsdale area; it is a great place. We accept payment in stories and libations. Cheers - Jeff & Monica

September 18th, 2016 Playa La Pesca

From Mex 180, you can take the road due east from Soto La Marina for 30 miles to La Pesca. There's many hotels and 1or 2 RV parks along the way, and many nice seafood stops. At the very end of the road, you'll find hundreds of palapas on the beach. They cost money during the day but no problem to sleep over night. On weekends this place can get busy and loud.

September 17th, 2016 Neptuno Trailer Park

simple camping and trailer park right on the beach. paid 60p/person for camping on the water. they have a pool and bar, no WiFi. the bathrooms are ok, but the place next door has better bathrooms. grass area on the water perfect for RTTs. the camp spots do have power hook-ups

August 14th, 2016 Playa Las Malvinas

nice beach and beautiful water, but toilets weren't working and there are industrial plants next door to the campground

August 13th, 2016 Taganga Paradise Hostal & Diving

You can camp in your vehicle in the parking lot here. They'll give you a key to access the bathrooms at night. Chopper, the owner, is around usually and is friendly. He likes having overlanders stay here. 30,000 for 2 people and a Landcruiser. Sprinter sized vans may fit, but nothing larger. For car camping options, Taganga doesn't offer much. Camping El Coral has closed and Ocean Reef Hostel, we were told, just closed last month. It didn't appear as though you could camp at Mr. Wilson's with a vehicle, unless you park out front.

July 31st, 2016 Tacuara Camping

There are two gates to get here. There are several posted private property signs. The first gate is not locked so we passed, but the next gate is bolted locked and barbed wire on the fences make it difficult to pass. I could see lights on above at the house and loud music. We tried to get their attention but was not possible. I messaged and called the number also, but no answer. If you are planning on going here, I would keep a backup option.

July 29th, 2016 Finca El Mocambo / Villa de Venecia

18k/p camping, they also have tent and cabana sites. very beautiful view overlooking the valley. washer and dryer 7k/kilo

July 26th, 2016 Tecnomotriz - Professional Auto Shop

Large professional mechanic shop with multiple lifts and equipment. Specialist in 4x4s. Owner is Henry Moller, speaks English, and is also a moto enthusiast.+57 24438112

this area also has a lot of car repair and part shops nearby

July 21st, 2016 Tepel

this location is irrelevant

July 21st, 2016 Lago Yahuarcocha

you are better off paying the $5 and camping at the very nice Finca Sommerwind on the other side of the lake.

July 20th, 2016 Termas de Papallacta

The last entrance to the Termas is at 9p. However people were swimming in them up till 11p, possibly later, but that's when we left. The parking area is large and there is a nice bathroom with a sink and toilet that stays open all night. Shower only inside the Termas. There is an area for tent camping as well.

July 18th, 2016 Caiman Lodge - Cuyabeno Reserve

Eco-lodge in the Amazon rainforest of Ecuador's Cuyabeno Reserve. Park in Lago Agrio take a shuttle for 2hrs to the reserve entrance and then take 2 hour river boat ride to this pristine ecosystem. Highlights include black & white caiman, anacondas, pink Dolphins, and tons of birds and frogs. Paid $540 for 2 people for three days in a private room. We also saw 2 large scorpions fighting, incredible.

July 11th, 2016 Forum Hotel

We arrived in Cuenca on a Sunday evening. Knowing that most garages (and most businesses) were going to be closed, we headed strait to the Forum. Beautiful hotel in an excellent location and parking was easy. They accompanied us to the parking area. $65 for 2 people, but worth it. Excellent breakfast buffet included.

July 7th, 2016 Hostal Casa Amelia

Welcoming and friendly staff. It's cheaper to camp here than the RV park and appears to be much nicer. I'd check here before heading to other options to see if Paul has space.

July 5th, 2016 Camping Guadelupe Jaime Veliz Caraz

15s/p, warm showers, flat, decent wifi. Nice facilities. Definitely recommended after hiking in the Cordilleras. The owner is building additional baños, kitchen, washing facilities. It's going to be very nice when done. Owner is okay with late night arrivals.

July 4th, 2016 Trailhead Laguna 69

No longer possible to park on the road, guards only let you park for the hike at the lower parking lot about 1.4km away

July 3rd, 2016 Repsol Gas Station

Re-classify as gas station, not campground

July 1st, 2016 Larco Museo

Fantastic museum with a special erotic gallery

July 1st, 2016 Playa Mendieta

On the southern side of the bay. There are several tracks leaving the main road. We saw sea otters, sea lions, whales and lots of birds. The sand is hard packed along the tracks. We only saw fisherman, much less crowded than areas in the north.

June 28th, 2016 Hotel Tampumayu

very nice hotel with area allowed for camping. they have llamas, Peruvian hairless dogs, horses, and a pet deer. very cool reception area. no WiFi and no showers for campers, but the place is definitely worth 20s.

June 26th, 2016 Rainbow Mountain/Cerro de Siete Colores/Winicunca-Vininkunka

3hr hike to and from this spot. 10s entry and most tours are 100s including guide, transportation, simple breakfast and lunch. check your receipt for all details as the tour operators in Cusco sell your package to a third party
