Description

Beautiful beach with a few sites for small/big RVs and tents. Updated prices : $200p for van and $???p for tent. The guy who collects the money is very friendly and depending on how long you plan to stay you might get an even better deal. There are pit toilets and palapas and at some point during the day a guy comes around and you can rent kajaks or buy fruit or water. We stayed 3 nights but could have stayed 2 weeks without getting bored.

Good enough campsite. Lots of highway noise. Windy and couldn’t paddle board much. Friendly vendors come to sell ceviche, blankets, hats, hammocks, etc. Ceviche was amazing!! Saw bioluminescence here :) Pretty sunrise!

Great place to reset (without service). People come around and sell food (so good) blankets etc. access to water and just such a good spot.

Beautiful views. Easy access to the water. Loved waking up to sunrise view. Traffic noise as we are close to the road and the hill.

All these reviews are accurate. If you are staying a week they'll give you a discount equal to one day free. Vendors come by frequently but they're all cool. Look for the Oxacans for blankets...expect to pay a lot but ask them about how they're made. We didn't negotiate. There's a guy coming by too who'll sell usually shrimp and scallops, and he'll give you the option of making ceviche or aguas chiles right there, on the spot. Personally, the scallops were too good for aguas chiles.

About a third of the spots here are held by long-term RV campers. They're a good source of info I guess. Fishing was terrible, dolphin pods will pop into the bay sometimes, or if you're out early you might see them, ask around about Marcello before you go on a horseback ride. And for god sakes, turn off your lights...the bioluminescent algae when we were there was like lightning on the sand, but I bet most the people there missed it because they had their string lights on on their RVs. Cover all your water and don't leave food out--there are racoons that'll come out and I hear they'll make a big mess everywhere if you leave anything that'll attract them. The pit toilets are fine, no worse than you'd get at a rustic campground...please don't poop in the mangroves. Even if you bury your toilet paper, which most people apparently don't bother to do, eventually it'll get unburied and blown into a nice little brown and white flag that will stay, fluttering in the breeze, commemorating your visit for many weeks or months.

Nightly rate is set at 200mp still. 150mp for day use. Andrés is the caretaker and works hard. Palapas vary in size and quality. Vendors back in force. 200L of well water will set you back 150mp. Stayed a week. Great supping, snorkeling, riding, swimming, and hiking.

Stayed one night here, friendly and safe place with palapas. Paid 200 pesos, they close the gates at 8pm which was reassuring. Great for paddle boarding and some snorkeling. The pit toilets are pretty disgusting, used our own portable. Other than that highly recommend this place.

Nice quiet night. Not too much road noise. Felt safe.

Decent place. 200mx/night with palapas for shade and wind protection. There are some nice walks up to the hill north of the beach and along the shore at low tide all the was to Posada. There is a dump station (no water) at the very south end of campground. There is the remains of a stone structure and if you look around you will find a white pipe coming out which is the dump.

One of our favorite spots on our baja trip, beautiful clear water, white sand beaches, venders bringing by stuff all day and a palapa for some shade. The downsides are bugs and the toilets are pretty gross. Trash is available. Sign up says $200p/night for camping and a gentleman in a green ford explorer came and collected and gave us a official receipt. A lot of locals on the weekend but during the week it clears out. Apparently in the winter time it is full of snowbirds. Stayed 2 nights. Would definitely stay again.

Loved this beach so much that we drove to Loreto, then came all the way back for another few nights at 'our' palapa. Great kayaking (we have our own but I think a guy was renting some). Quiet, only 2 other parties on beach. 200 per night.

If the gate is locked if you roll in late, knock on the big rig BC plated camper opposite the entrance, they have the key.

Quiet in October, only us and one other overlander. This place is amazing for clams on the North side.

Just off the point of Playa Escondido. Followed a trail to get there. Crowded. Way bigger RVs since the access is easier and closer to the highway. Bigger boats too (different crowd). Lots of vendors when I was there, including vegetables.

Report Check-In

The beach is perfect as it is covered from winds.
The give you a rate by the week (stay one week, get a day free). Lots of snowbirds staying here (super friendly).
Paid 200 pesos first night and the following days 150 only after we complained about the current state of the toilets (out of the three we saw, only one was operational but had no door).
Worth it for the beach and neighbors.
Vendors come everyday to try and sell you stuff.

Someone stopped by and asked for $150p but who knows if they really own or run the beach?Just how Mexico is.

Anyhow, tons and tons of sand flys when we stayed at dusk. They weren’t biting but very annoying. Had to stay in the camper when the sun dropped @ 4:30pm behind the hill.

I’m sure the bug thing is hit or miss so this spot is still worth checking out.

Paid 150 pesos with a palapa. This beach is not as windy as Santispac. Some noise from the highway but not bad.

Yes, nice place. 200 for palapa, 150 without palapa. We didn't need one, 100 was also ok for the two of us with car and trailer. Easy access for all rigs. Great views.

Beautiful beach, albeit close to the road. Palapas were 8USD per night. We were here in Christmas Eve and Christmas Day - the spot was full of RV travelers who were very friendly and welcoming. Beautiful sunrise, dolphins in morning and evening, Bikes parked right next to Palapa.

Beautiful beach with a few sites for small/big RVs and tents. We paid 100 pesos for a truck camper, tents should be around 50 pesos. The guy who collects the money is very friendly and depending on how long you plan to stay you might get an even better deal. There are pit toilets and palapas and at some point during the day a guy comes around and you can rent kajaks or buy fruit or water.
