We also struggled to find level ground, but carried on the road further down about 10 mins and found a place where the road was wider and flat (we didn’t want to risk leaving the road itself). V quiet night, lovely sunrise. Good for a one night stop.

Much of the information the same as previous post. However, single entry 30 day visa now 60,000 CFA. We dropped off passports in the morning and were told to return the next day in the morning. Wanted yellow fever certificate but not Covid. Did not need passport photos anymore.

The driveway is pretty narrow and steep, not possible to turn around, so you need to back out. Definitely only space for 1 medium vehicle. Owners are really friendly and the shower is super hot, but kind of awkward with smoked-glass doors that you can see inside and face the common areas. The noise from the road is quite loud starting around 6am. Short walk to town, which is nice. $5pp still.

We saw 3-4 (humpback?) whales from the road in march. So keep an eye on the sea if there's not too much swell to see them blowing 🐳

We had a great stay here in our sprinter van. We came mostly for the coffee, and it was great! Fun vibe of people around the camp, and the hosts are very kind.

A new wooden shelter with windows. Next to the road, but very sheltered for wind and rain. It’s not huge, but if fits a tent.

Still the same. No one bothered us at all. The police officer stopped us on our way out of the tiny village. We thought first he would ask us some money but no, he just wanted a lift to the next village... Beautiful site. Very very very beautiful...

Strange experience for us. We parked on the parking lot of the hotel and asked the guy at the reception if we could have a look at the waterfall from here. So friendly, he said "no problem at all", and showed us the way of the terrace where the view is just spectacular. We asked after if we could eat on our truck. "No problem, you can take as much time as you want." Great. After eating, we got out for a cigarette and a random dude showed up, an AK47 hanging on his shoulder. He seemed drunk and started to ask us money quite agressivly. 2000 KZ. We said ok, thats the price on IOverlander, but we would give it to the hotel not you. So we went to see our friend at the reception, had a quick chat with him (only portugese but google translate helped a lot), and he just told us to leave without paying anything, it was ok. So we understood this drunk guy is the guide/escort if you want to take the path how leads to the bottom of the waterfall. No way we were going anywhere with that guy, and the viewpoint from the hotel was already stunning. We were ready to leave a bit of money to the hotel, its normal, but in the confusion of the moment, we just left with a lot of "muito obrigad" and waving. That guy at the reception was very sweet. Too bad that they let drunk armed dudes hanging out in their property.

Gorgeous site anyway. We came here to avoid the hassle in the otherside (we think its the best angle to see the falls anyway). Some people say kids how ask for money are cute. That is definetly not our opinion.

Last 15 km before the hotel are screwed up. Lot of potholes. Worth it.

We stayed here for one night because it’s the only place in Tupiza.
But honestly it’s not a camping, it’s a huge waste disposal all around!

Great place. We felt safe and had a very quiet night. The river is pretty hot but beautiful. Not many people during the week.
