Spent one night here. We asked for permission first. A little noisy as there are lots of trucks coming and going all night. It was okay for one night.

It's true. Probably the best mechanic on the continent, but definitely the most dedicated we've met on our travels.

Wr were up on 3800m in San Antonio when we got a leak in break fluid pipe down by the wheel. Local mechanic up there couldn't fix it and even made it worse. We found Guillermo on iOverlander and called him. He talked with the local guy up there and suggested how to close off that leaking pipe at the ABS system and it worked. We safely got to the valley. Without that we'd have to get ourselves towed down.

Then, even though he was very busy, saw us the very next morning and with his brother worked the whole day just on our brakes and got it fixed.

We're still in touch and check up if everything is in order.

I'd really recommend Guillermo for really anything that you have to get done, as he speaks English, is very friendly and dedicated and will fix but any gear you might have (check his Instagram, it's cool)!

Do note that he charges by an hour (not per job). For my opinion, it's a fair price.

This is a compact and free campground along route 15 on the way to Gila Cliff Dwellings National Monument. There are about 8 sites. There are fire rings with grills attached, picnic tables, pit privies, and bear-proof trash containers. You have to cross a shallow rocky stream to get to the campground. We had no trouble crossing it in our Promaster van with AT tires. The stream also makes lovely sounds. There is ample firewood around. Rather shady among tall pines, so you may not be able to get a good solar charge. Excellent place to stop on the way to or from the cliff dwellings.

Small clean rooms with fan and AC from 6k to 10k Naira. The cheaper ones have running water, but only bucket shower. Generator is on 6pm to 6am.
No food, but cold beers and soft drinks available.
Centrally located, with food places and money changers as well as a supermarket in the area.

We stayed here for one night without a problem. Police patrolled during the night but didn‘t seem to bother.
We had a quiet night even though it was a friday:)

Nice place with a great view over Magellan Street and an amazing sun rise if the weather is good. Few pit toilets - are very dirty and a lot of barbecue spots. For one night close to Punta Arenas it’s a very good option.

Really nice campground and a friendly owner. The only downside is that we were not allowed to fill the watertank in our camper. Wifi is only in front of the reception but there is good seating. It is in walking distance from a big supermarket.

The road was "blocked" by water, so we stayed right at the entrance. At night a crazy guy came by in his car shouting while he was passing.

The place looks really nice - behind the YPF, an closed area with barbecues, tables, water and energy. But now they are charging 1500 pesos 😳
We parked on the other side of the station, in the parking lot itself - we fuel our tanks and consume at the station, and yet the owner of the station came to “charge” us for spending the night there and said if we didn't leave would call the police 😒

O lugar parece realmente agradável - atrás do YPF, uma área cercada com churrasqueiras, mesas, água e energia. Porém agora estão cobrando 1500 pesos 😳
Nós estacionamos do outro lado do posto, no próprio estacionamento - abastecemos e consumimos no posto, e mesmo assim o dono do posto veio nos “cobrar” por termos passado a noite ali e disse que se não saíssemos iria chamar a polícia 😒

This spot is along a MapsMe track/tracks leading to the big dunes. It begins at the same point as the track to the Kaluts. You drive on a flat gravel plain, like the one to the beginning of the kaluts, till you reach the dunes. There is not always a clear track to follow, but just follow the same direction as the track on MapsMe and you will get there. It is a rather dull drive for about 90 km but it is a possibility if you just want to make a dune loop or wish to shorten your loop back from the Kaluts and Luts Eye.

definitely a coll place to camp for a night or two... especially if you are on an adventure bike. though I didn't see anything a car couldn't make it through if you went slow. if you take the spot right by the creek and it storms, keep an eye on the water levels. I had about 2 feet of bank height before I would have had to move my camp in the middle of the night.(;

I don't understand why there are so many bad reviews about this hotel. The price/quality is fine. Bloom Star is a real overlander Hotel. If you're on your way from Taftan, you've probably already slept in police stations with appalling sanitation. Bloom star is really a relief. Motorcycles or cars are safely parked in the private parking lot and they do not make it difficult to make a (delicious) meal late at night.

The rooms are dated, the beds dusty and the sanitary facilities basic. But much better than a police station and most travelers bring their own sleeping gear anyway. I slept in the room with 2 other motorcyclists and paid less than €5 p.p.

Staff is friendly and helpful. The owner tries to help you where he can. The garden is a lovely peaceful oasis in the city. Are you hesitating between police station or Bloom Star? Choose Bloom Star.

Street parking at the park, rather quiet at night, horses grazing in the park, some dogs barking, little traffic. No amenities. Had to stay here after a construction site and a broken down truck cost us almost 2 hours and it was dark. Felt safe, slept well.

Our camper was too big for the museum parking lot, so they sent us here. Could park for free all day, hotel and pool look very nice and clean, didn’t use any amenities though, left late afternoon after completing the archeological round trip. Lady at the reception very nice and friendly.

Had a run in with 5 armed guys blocking the street between Guadalejo and the bridge, on the way back from Tierradentro direction Puerto Valencia and La Plata. They claimed to be part of FARC. They didn’t ask for money, but asked for „tarjetas“ (don’t know if they meant credit cards or ID). Didn’t give them anything, and managed to escape unharmed with some minor damage on our camper including three holes from their pistols. Police told us that there are some dissident left-overs from FARC still active in Dept. Cauca. Be careful and if possible travel in groups of several cars.

Tomato red water lake next to a mud beige lake, all surrounded by small mountains and orange canyon dug by water. Just beautiful. The access road is marked closed because the rains have damaged the track. But the locals pass with their car. Only downside there are many horseflies. Here they call this place the Valley of the Moon. We spent the night there.

lac d’eau rouge tomate à côté d’un lac beige de boue, le tout entouré de petites montagnes et canyon orangé creusés par l’eau. juste magnifique. la route d’accès est marquée fermée car les pluies ont abîmé la piste. mais les locaux passent avec leur voiture. seul bémol il y a beaucoup de taons. ici ils appellent cet endroit la vallée de la lune. nous avons passé la nuit là.

Cerro Chenque. You can park on a large parking lot with a view of the city. Then there is a path that goes to the top of Cerro. 15 minute walk, easy which gives you a magnificent 360-degree viewpoint.

Small island near the coast which rises vertically with its steep cliffs, about 60 m high. Very narrow and long, its top is covered with cormorant which nests there. Visible from the coast at the top of a cliff, you can photograph the birds and spend the night there. Very beautiful.
