Spent a couple of nights here: 2 people + 1 dog in a Ford Transit van.
Awesome vibes at this place. Marcos is super kind and you can tell this place is only going to keep improving.
We thought it was great for the price. We paid Q50 per night. I would recommend messaging Marcos ahead of time to make sure there is space to park. There is only enough space for 2-3 vehicles. Anything longer than a Ford Transit/Sprinter type van will probably not fit.
There are loads of organic foods being grown, and we hope some day soon Marcos can offer whatever is in season for purchase 👍🏼 I saw loads of kale that I wanted to eat!
Marcos also does hiking tours, but we didn’t do any.
If you want to explore San Juan and San Pedro, I recommend stopping here and walking or taking a tuktuk into San Pedro. I drove all throughout San Pedro and one wrong turn puts you down the tightest roads I’ve ever driven. Plus you have to pay a Q5-10 town tax for each town, so you may as well leave your car and take a tuktuk.
San Juan has an amazing energy to it. Really friendly people all around the city. I felt like a local for the 2 days I was there.
Note: the parking area isn’t totally flat, but we leveled out easy enough with two maxtrax boards and angling at a 45 degree angle towards the hostel.

This place was a bit easy to miss from the road, and I ended up having to backtrack. I got there about 5 pm, and the first spot already had someone there. I was nervous about going up to the higher spots because I had like 0 offroading experience, but I ended up getting to the top spot with very little difficulty in my nissan rogue. Slept peacefully and had no one else around me. When I came back down the next morning at around 5 am, I noticed a total of 3 different car campers were all crammed into the spot at the bottom and no one else tried to come up the hill. Glad I went for it despite my nerves. I was a bit surprised so many people were there, even on a random Wednesday in May. Seems to be a very popular camping spot with the limited availability in the area and the proximity to the AMR parking area a couple minutes down the road. Definitely some road noise all throughout the night since it is right next to the road, but it wasn't bad. Absolutely no T-Mobile service.
Agriturismo that offers camping for campers. it has a decent playground for kids. offseason we paid 15 euro per night for 2 adults and 2 kids. unsure what electricity costs.

Beautiful free campsite! It was so nice we ended up extending our stay here. Around 20 sites with pit toilets, bins, picnic tables and fire rings. We arrived on Wednesday ahead of the long weekend and manage to grab one of the last sites - first come first serve.

A 100% German hospitality experience in Ecuador. It was so nice to be here!
Hans is a very hard working German guy and well-known and appreciated host by everyone. The site has everything an overlander dreams of and a beergarten exactly like you’ll find in Germany. Mark our words - You’ll be deeply impressed by the German specility beer offerings and the food menu.
Many overlanders come here as you can see in the reviews and we’ve met some awesome fellow travellers. Definitely worth the stay if you are in the area.

Entrance height closer to 9 ft as our promaster van with max air vent fan fit underneath. Cleanest, most welcoming option of the open campgrounds near the beach here, but still not great. Asked 50 per person for motorhome. Tent camping 40 pp. Bathrooms with warm suicide showers. 110v in parking area. Wi-Fi very weak in camp area for vans. Better in tent zone. Street dogs barked off and on all night and random thumping music from cars.

Most friendly and comfortable Hotel in Quime I would say!
|Hotel Melody||-16.97998, -67.21657|
a popular hotel and restaurant with many of the expats and wealthier crowd. the owner is a super lovely dude and the food here is incredible for the price. dishes hovered around 8000-12000. We had fish carpaccio, Cray fish and rolled beef in cheese. (we did feel very fancy) it was some of the best sea food and meat dishes we have had on the trip. perfect for a special treat or reflexed evening!

Nice big level Cracker Barrel lot. There were at least 10 vans, campers etc when I got there. Quiet enough to get a good rest.
|Cracker Barrel||35.45766, -97.59596|
Very skilled and friendly garage which was willing to help us with our European registered car and own parts. We had an issue with the engine of our VW Crafter. After visiting quite some garages which were not able or willing to help, Craig was happy to help out. He is a very skilled mechanic, super friendly person and asked for a very fair price.
