February 22nd, 2022 Restaurant Parking Lot

The last parking space, coming from Escondido, is meant for overlanders. It has a sign 'RV Parking' with electricity plugs and a water hose. We spent a night there in our 7m motorhome - free - and had huge dishes (Hamburger, Ribeye) and Hefeweizen beers in the restaurant, delicious. Wifi from restaurant reaches parking.

February 17th, 2022 Sirenito Macho Campamento Tortuguero

We did threee squat tours with Javier to find nests of turtles (22.30-01.00, 23.00-04.00, 20.00-22.00) on the 18km long beach for rescuing eggs. Saw four large turtles, laying eggs and were able to rescue an other nest. Unfortunately, two nests had been plundered just before we arrived, by locals. Two turtles had to turn back to sea (lack of suitable nesting places; rubbish, plastic). In the morning, we released baby turtles into the water. Its an amazing experience and hard work :o) We stayed four nights with a 7m motorhome (400p/night). Seafood in the restaurant is from the local fishermen, delicious.

It's there, as indicated by the icon. Go around the building. They sell water canisters or fill your own container with drinking water.

December 20th, 2021 Charly's Restaurant and Bungalows

Once you have passed the fence gate, go up the dirt ramp after 50m at the right hand side - before the yellow house - to reach the RV park. Tranquil place, delicious food and Erdinger Weissbier.
Charly is a very welcoming, generous and helpful guy. He organized a tour to the 7 Leguas tequila destillery, a raclette in front of a fireplace and bakes the best bread we had so far in the Americas. Highly recommended.

A car drove into the back of our motorhome and damaged some of the plastic parts.

Novoyuki did a good job, our stay and the interaction with the locals was a special experience. Call/WhatsApp him if you are in a desperate need of a talented young guy +52 228 363 0666

December 2nd, 2021 Gaia alternativa solar

We went there to replace the solar batteries in our motorhome. Dario, who speaks English well, and his team are very professional. Because we needed a special size of battery, they had non on stock but could organize them quickly. Fair price, recommended.

December 2nd, 2021 Hotel Rolovi

We paid for our double room 430P/night, breakfast and IVA included. Because this is the cheapest room (no.101), it's close to the guest car port and therefore can be noisy.

We had a delicious fish soup at one of the restaurants overlooking the river and a quiet night here.
