Something not right?

Description

We stumbled across this campsite while heading towards 'Cliff outlooking Beach' site not too far ahead, and we are SO glad we did. We only intended on staying for 1 night and ended up staying 4. All on the one property of land there's a huge amount of salt flats, beautiful desert landscape, the most pristine sand dunes we've ever seen and a huge coastline beach with warm waters (and awesome shells!) There's a family that runs the site that are lovely and an abundance of space to camp. We were the only campers there, but a few cars came through to access the beach. It's 100 pesos p/p to camp, and there are cabanas available to rent. There are nice showers and toilets on site. There's no internet here but a short drive into town and you can get some.

We tried to visit but the gate was closed :(

Fabulous spot! The gps coordinates take you to the entrance road - go through the open gates and follow the dirt/sand road less than 1/2 mile to the buildings by the salt flat. There are nature walks, sand dunes, lots of birds, and oases. The owner is very welcoming and his 2 dogs are incredibly social/friendly. A great place to camp!

Was quoted 150p for camping, but then offered room for 250p as an option. Took the room as it saved me the hassle of setting up my tent and sleeping on the ground. The communial bathroom was fine. Cold water shower an option (didn't use, but verify worked). No electricity (or heat or a/c naturally). Bed was fine, only a sheet. Slept in my sleeping bag for hygiene reasons anyway. (Not that it seemed dirty, but who knows if it was really washed anytime recently?)

nice sunset over picacho del Diablo in the distance.

I was the only one there for the night.

nice little eco walk right at the place too.

Actual camp is a little ways off the highway. Coordinates for that: 31.5118817, -114.1360097

(Listing only takes you to the road, it can be a little confusing. You must drive across the salt flat to arrive at camp)

Great spot! You can camp by the cabanas in a large parking lot or down by the beach. The drive to the beach is good but you can only go so far if you aren't 4WD - the sand gets very soft. if you aren't 4WD you can camp near the salt flats on the way to the beach. These salt flats appear to be currently "mined" so it may be noisy with trucks on a work day.

We camped in the parking lot by the cabanas. There is road noise from the highway here so if you want a quieter spot I think you can camp up the hill behind the cabanas. Super nice host. I told the guy I only spoke a little Spanish and he spoke to me in very slow Spanish that I could understand. He also throws in some English when you talk to him.

Bathrooms are very nice but the showers are cold.

The beach is lovely. So many birds. There is a walking path from the parking lot near the cabanas with signs in English and Spanish.

We were charge 150 p fir the two nights we stayed.

We were the only guests here. Only wanted a spot for our tent . But they basically gave us a little house, where we were able to put our bicycles in and sleep in our own sleeping bags.
We only paid 200 pesos for 2 people.
They have cold showers, toilets.
They even offered us coffee at the morning.

Awesome place! We were allowed to set up our tent inside a house to be protected from the wind. They also allowed us to use the kitchen and there are nice BBQ pits. Surprisingly clean and very well maintained. Even the bathrooms had soap, toilet seats and paper.
150 Pesos for the tent and 500 for the cabanas. Make sure to bring some supplies, next town is 50 kilometers away. You can easily spend some time here there is a lot to explore.

Same experience as OP. Showers are nice but not heated. Nice place and hosts.
