Yax Ha Resort 18.56083, -88.24917

We camped on a large grassy field, next to the restaurant, not visible from the street. We can not recommend the food in the restraurant, but it seems they don't expect you to eat there.

Restaurant La Selva 18.54086, -89.92322

Superb location in the Jungle. Great wildlife: The monkeys fed on the mangos above our car, wild boar, deer and other animals close to our site. The shower building is just a wooden shack in the camping area, we didn't dare to have a look at the toilets.

The campground is located 20 minutes from the pedestrian zone of San Cristóbal. Electricity / water / waste water at site. A little run down.

Hotel parking lot. As an RV you get two parking spaces which you can use. For small vehicles there is a great parking space among trees. Mini pool, bathrooms with extremely tight (but clean) toilets and open showers. Great WIFI. Too expensive!

Hotel La Hacienda + RV parking 16.75560, -93.14223

It's a children's home which provides three big sites with water and electricity for free. Sites are on a big grassy field where the sheep are grazing. A very simple shower room (during our stay there was no water) is also provided. The love the idea of making contact between the children and travellers in that way. The director and the kids are very nice, but unfortunately hardly any communication happend which was also our fault.

When we visited the place again five weeks later, unfortunately, there was neither water nor electricity at the sites and the bathroom was very dirty and unusable.

Hogar Infantil 16.77588, -93.38417

If it wasn't summer and rainy season it would be a great place. There were many mosquitoes and it was incredibly humid days and nights The campground is located two blocks from the Pacific Ocean beach and there is a very simple looking bathroom, but very clean, the showers were cold, but with the best water pressure which you can imagine. The place is quite idyllic located at a lagoon with palm trees.

Be careful when you walk along the beach to eat something. Have a look at the menus and the prices. We have eaten anywhere so bad and so expensive in whole Mexico!
