Very nice place with very nice people! we spent three nights with our family, enjoyed the pool and the hospitality of Heraldo and his family. We had a nice barbeque with Heraldo's and the other families on the campground and a little concert from our new ecuadorian motorcyclist friends who camped there, too.
Absolutely recommended!

Parada obrigada cerca de Lima. Cuenta con wifi, baños limpios, ducha caliente y piscina. El barrio es muy tranquilo. Nos recibió la familia de viajeros argentinos @teaguantohastaalaska que en ausencia del dueño Heraldo cuidan y atienden el refugio con la mejor onda (esperando solucionar los problemas con su motorhome y continuar su viaje). Estuvimos varios dias colaborando en algunas tareas necesarias en el refugio.
Gracias Flavia, Maxi e hijos.

Refugio Lima Is a great base to explore Lima. The current host Flavia is absolutely great! She helped us find a mechanic, organised the driver to Lima for us and we even got Popcorn as a welcome gift. We can definitely recommend coming here.

Report Check-In

We had a good time at the refugio. Stayed 4 days. Flavia organized a trip to Lima with the driver/guide Jonathan, which was perfect. Place highly recomended.

Report Check-In

We stayed there for a couple of days and left our car at the Refugio for three weeks. Flavia and her family, who are running the place right now, made our stay there special. We loved the great company and Flavias Popcorn. In the evenings we cooked together and spent such a great time with Flavia, Maxi and the children. Their energy makes this place special and we already miss them very much. Thank you Flavia, Maxi, Valentin, Santi and Agatha for this amazing time. We even celebrated Manuels birthday with them and it couldn‘t have been better. If you want to park your car safely near Lima (1.5 hours to Miraflores/Barranco), go there and ask Flavia about the great Taxidriver Jonathan, who will bring you anywhere for a good price. He was a tourguide, so knows a lot about Lima and Peru.

After a 2.5 months storage here, Heraldo welcomed us again with a Pizza party. How nice it was to come back to this family run place.
Far away from city center (1h 30 min), but the village offers a few supermarkets and restaurants and an ATM
Heraldo will help you with whatever you ask for.
A nice place not to miss for a rest and the nice atmosphere.

Excelente lugar para descansar y pasar unos días en la naturaleza. Sara, Heraldo y Hernán nos recibieron en su refugio. Nos dieron agua un baño y nos recomendaron un taller mecánico para reparar el vehículo. Pasamos 4 noches geniales. Muy recomendable

Un muy buen lugar para descansar, alejado de Lima pero con buses y colectivos a 1 cuadra económicos y frecuentes. Cieneguilla es un hermoso barrio para conocer.
El espacio tiene todo lo necesario (agua caliente, baños, lugar para descarga de aguas grises y negras, pileta, parrilla, etc.
Heraldo, Sara y Hernán están siempre disponibles para consultas o inquietudes. Existe la opción de hacer voluntariado o pagar un costo accesible por los días que uno esté ahí.
Recomendamos este lugar para quienes pasen por Lima!!!

good and safe place. we stood here during the demonstration in Lima and Peru. here everything quiet. nice family, they help with any informations and let us feel very comfortable and pleasant. everything expediential and clean. to recommend. 20s p/car +10s by using electricity.

Report Check-In

Quiet and safe place to stay, with hot shower, bathrooms and good Wifi.
We left our Campervan here for 2 nights to go to Lima with public transportation and stayed 2 nights in the city. If you want to leave your car here and go to the city, talk to them in advance, so there is no confusion. There are some regulations about when to use big amounts of water because it's a place in a dry area. And there are some dogs and cats at the refugio. One night for 2 people in the camper costs 40 Soles or 10 Dollars.

This is the place to be when around Lima. You can conveniently leave the truck there to explore the city or even go back to your home country. Not only a meeting point for fellow overlanders, Heraldo and Sarah are the nicest persons and will do their best to accomodate your needs in the best atmosphere.

Had a wonderful, relaxed 4 days here. Highly recommended. Everything an overlander needs.

Great people, great spot! Heraldo and Sara are amazing hosts who will help you with anything you need. Showers, bathrooms, wifi, pool, and bbq area. Beautiful place, close to the river and nearby restaurants. They helped us extend our SOAT on a Sunday and are always available to consult for help while traveling. Great advise and connections. Amazing people :)

we stayed ten days at the refuge with our 24 feet. Great welcome and great atmosphere both with Heraldo and his family and with other travellers. Heraldo helped us a lot to complete the TIP suspension file for one year and we left our motorhome in storage for a few months. ideal for quietly visiting Lima. many basic shops not far from the refuge. 30 soles per day with electricity and US$80 per month for storage. Great address…

Report Check-In

It really is a great refuge just outside of Lima! We got in just after dark and without internet. Unfortunately, we were unable to get the attention of the overlanders there, so we just street camped. The second day we found wifi and contacted Heraldo. He was not at the refuge, but he happily coordinated with the overlanders there, gave us their phone numbers, and ensured we had the refuge’s internet connection so we could contact people on-site when we arrived. Once inside, we stayed two nights! Very relaxing time with everyone there. Played pool, had a movie night, and took a swim in the pool. Even the local black kitten made an appearance and took to our van. No issues with him - he was really cute. Highly recommend! Reach out before arriving!

We highly recommend this place! Discovered due to Covid, we had to find a safe place to leave our truck to go back to France...lovely family which makes you feel at home, Heraldo took care of our motorhome for nearly 1,5 year!! And help us for all papers required to it ship back, even to drive it to the pear. The campsite is really pleasant, nice to relax out of the crazy Lima ;-)

Report Check-In

Heraldo and his family are truly incredible! We spent more than 3 weeks here during the infamous Covid19 quarantines. Peru locked down their roads, borders, etc and had some of the strictest responses to covid19. Heraldo went out of his way to help us and the other overlanders by going to the supermarkets, atms, and wherever else we needed. He truly cares and is a genuinely nice guy.

He bakes delicious bread and is a great chef! Their is a pool as well as a common space to chill. The prices are excellent!

Our van is currently parked at his lot as we wait until the quarantines are over. Heraldo even helps with the paperwork to suspend the import permits.

Thanks again Heraldo and Sara! :)

We were looking for a place to rest and fix some problems in the camper. Here we were warmly welcomed by Heraldo and his family! There is all that overlanders need, wifi, warm shower, water and electricity. But also you will encounter what makes the site special: other travellers collaborating and exchanging in a very friendly atmosphere! They are currently improving the garden, planting fruit trees... Our children were also happy to play with the boys and do Halloween party together! Best to contact Heraldo before arriving (whatsapp below). If no work exchange, cost is 20s/night/vehicule, +10s for electricity.

If you're going to do something in Lima or you have to fix something at your car, caravan,motorhome, whatever.. This is a wonderful place to be at. We came here to stay 2 days and we spend 8..
