Beautiful beach campground. Clear blue water and amazing landscape view! Friendly vendors will offer you non-potable water in giant blue tubs as well as an array of food. You won’t have to leave if you don’t want to. M250 per Night, negotiated to 500 Pesos for 3 Nights.
Why? By checking in after you’ve visited a place you let others know this place is still functional. You can also add or correct any information.
Slept here last night, and it was ok. Worst bathrooms of all of the conception spots so far.$250 pesos, nice palapas, and a pretty view. Lots of bugs and bees. The road is also so close to the camping spots, and it is a hill so there are semi trucks using extremely loud compression breaks coming down, or flooring it to make it up the hill which kept me up all night. Wouldn’t stay here again.Report Check-In
most beautiful beach yet. very narrow but quiet, and turquoise waters
they charge between 150 and 250 pesos per day, depending on... who knows
plenty of space
Lovely beach for swimming and paddling. Many palapas and vendors. The bathrooms were clean enough. Super loud campers/partiers at night on the beach…though we’ve had that at every beach this trip, sadly. Great restaurant up the road at Playa El Burro!Report Check-In
When the waters are calm this place is paradise. Dolphins in the mornings. I caution swimming when it’s not calm as there are a fair amount of stingrays in these waters.
You can spot them easier when it’s calmer but mostly they don’t want to be near you. Saw a local and a dog get stung yesterday. $200 pesos per night. $250 if you’re lucky to get a palapa but I’ve heard they are prone to roaches and even scorpions (spoke with a couple who had one for 6 weeks). Don’t leave trash out. Lots of local vendors come buy with delicious food items.
Great camping spot! Last review is correct: follow the signs on the road to Playa El Coyote. Don’t take the other turn off!
Still charge $250 for camping with a palapa. Southeast end of the beach is the greatest: road noise minimal, some trees here and there, sun until later in the day (end of the day sun is not super hot, rather nice), you can hike up the rocks and a lot of pit toilets that were clean enough. Long term guests there (snowbirds from Canada and US), but we got lucky (probably because some already went home?). All super nice people and even though it was full we felt like there was a lot of privacy: as each site has an (mostly enclosed) palapa you are standing between two palapas.
Be aware: in March there’s A LOT of stingrays here (because of mating season we’ve been told?). The water is very shallow for a while and they burry in the sand. We were taught by the friendly snowbirds staying here long term to enter the water on a paddle board or kayak and then you can swim. Someone even let us use their paddle board! Some people also walked with sticks into the water. Shuffle at the very least.
Otherwise amazingly peaceful. Amazing starry skies at night, the sound of calm waves (in the morning completely still water, no wind. Afternoon bring varying degrees of wind).
If in need of internet (absolutely no reception here) you can get fast WiFi at Restaurante JCs. Oh and local vendors come once or twice a day to sell some stuff like camarones, drinking water etc, but also if you want to rent a kayak. The guy comes pick up the camping fee at the end of the day.
Maps me and Google will tell you the entrance is down from where it actually is. Enter at the sign for playa coyote, this will take you to the first option and if you continue through the camp the road will go around a cliff wall to the other beach. The area is busy so bargaining for camping won’t get you far unless you are staying long term. With a palapa it’s $250p and without it is $200p. Vendors come around to sell everything, you can bargain here and if you don’t want anything it’s easy to say no. We rented a double and single kayak for 48hours for $2000 which we got him down to from $3000. The site is pretty protected from the wind but wind waves start picking up around 11am most days. The camp host collects garbage from the bins each day. Toilets are composting with three walls facing the cliff. The camp host can bring non-potable water for showers if you need and somebody brings potable water in the morning as well. The long termers are concentrated at the end of the beach and are all super friendlyReport Check-In
Very nice beach, coarse white sand. Very dog friendly. There are several palapas. Great spot from which to paddle to Isla Coyote and other nearby islands. Very clean and well maintained.
The highway is close behind and traffic noise is a thing.
Paid 200mx per night with no palapa.
Pit toilets, no other services.Report Check-In
Really clean beautiful beach with calm blue waters - just about warm enough to swim! We tent camped with our motorcycle and the guy came by at 07:30am the next morning to collect the money (200 pesos). Plenty of vendors passed by offering food, non-potable water and kayak rental. No-one selling drinking water but there is a shop about 300 metres north of the entrance to the beach which does. As others have said, this is next to the road but we weren't too disturbed by noise at night. There is one vault toilet which is really not too bad. It only has 3 sides but is very private and there is a sign asking you to knock so you dont disturb anyone 🤣 Remember to bring your own toilet paper too.Report Check-In
Nice beach. No hilarious/abusive horse guy .Report Check-In
250 pesos for one night. Not many people around at this time of year (early November). Clean beach, friendly locals and lots of vendors throughout the day selling food, water and kayak rentals. We rented two double kayaks for US$70 and paddled around Isla Coyote to the beautiful beach for some snorkeling.
The road in had a tricky tight corner around a rocky outcrop and I am not sure how the larger rigs made it in. Our truck and 24 ft trailer managed to get through.
Open but nobody ever came to take my money. Sign says it’s $150 for day use or $200 camping. I left early in the morning and only spent one night so maybe I just missed the auditor. Easily accessible in small 2WD car. Late September so very off season and ridiculously hot. A few local families used the beach during the day but everyone else was gone by sunset, there may have been some people far down the beach but not sure if that’s the same campground. There are palapas but most got pretty beat up by the hurricane and haven’t been repaired yet. Some mosquitos and flies. I tent camped and it was an ok place to spend the night. No vendors nor creepy horse guy present in off season.Report Check-In
Very nice beach. 200 pesos for Camper and 2P. Very busy at weekend and holidays!!Report Check-In
Really loved our five night stay here. $200 MX per night. We were the second palapa from the very end and never noticed the road noise. On the weekends a lot of people come and use the palapas just for the day. If you wait until the evening you can easily snag one. Worst thing about this place are the flies, sometimes they bite, sometimes they don't, but bug dope didn't seem to help. This is probably our favorite beach in Bahia de Conception, as it is great for swimming, beautiful sandy beach, and scenic landscape, but I agree to be cautious of the horse guy. He has creeped us out for years and can be seen at many beaches in this area.Report Check-In
Beautiful spot to spend a couple of days. Most of the comments are right on.Report Check-In
Beautiful beach, like all the beaches south of Mulege. I’ve been here a few times the past couple of years. Enjoyed the beach, and took the horseback ride with local guide Marcelo two years in a row. It’s a great way to spend half a day.Report Check-In
Really great beach. Beautiful water. A mountain you can hike up.
200pesos/night- quite a few pit toilets- no service.
Fantastic beach camping. Be there before 3 pm otherwise there will be no spot available. We got the last Palapa and it’s December.
Bring your own amenities as the pit toilets are just 3 wooden boards without any door.
Local People deliver food right to your spot.
At night it gets sometimes noisy as trucks use their engine breaks running down the hill in the backside of the beach.
All the comments are accurate. 200 a bit noisy but more than bearable. RecommendReport Check-In
As I mentioned before, this is a beautiful site but I will have to agree, the road noise is a bit loud especially at night. There is a big hill coming into the area and the the trucks often use their Jake brakes to slow down. The sound echoes off the surrounding cliffs and can be loud at times. Other than that, it's great swimming and beautiful views.Report Check-In
Great sand beach and well protected bay with calm water. Fair amount of day users and we were left to Beach all to ourselves on a Monday night.Report Check-In
absolutely beautiful nice little palapa, gorgeous view.Report Check-In
Beautiful area of la Bahia Concepción, we saw a gorgeous sunrise and the sting rays jumping early in the morning. Easy access of the highway and garage cans to get rid of trash. That being said, very crowded and noisy. The trucks often use their Jake brakes so bring ear plugs and people like to party late. Not a place for a quiet getaway but it’s good to get a change of pace from our normal choice of spots. Seriously bring ear plugs and watch out for TP left all over the beach. If you have dogs, there are a ton of cats or something on the cliffs so maybe keep los perros on a leashReport Check-In
Beautiful beach camping spots with palapas. Pit toilets and garbage cans provided. Clean and well maintained. No cell coverage on Verizon.Report Check-In
I spent three nights here last week and came back for two more nights this week. It is 200 pesos a night, but I managed to get three nights for 500. the vendors will come by and you can usually get a palapa. the road noise was a little bad, camping at the south/east end of the beach you’re right below the highway, but you’re at the bottom of a little bay which makes the water the calmest. The Biolumes are great down here and I recommend a night paddle/kayak/canoe trip to fully enjoy them.
There a garbage cans and the open pit toilets weren’t too bad.
Great spot. 200 per night. A guy came by and took money from us and gave us a receipt. Calm water for snorkeling and kayakingReport Check-In
Beautiful azure waters and uncrowded. We rented a kayak from a vendor and paddled out to the nearby islands. Gorgeous landscape and sunsets. 200 pesos per night. Nice stop on our way south. Our last day was really windy!Report Check-In
Great place. Some noise from the road when the trucks drive down the hills using their engine brakes. Short wake up the hill on the west side provides a great sunset.Report Check-In
Stayed here two nights before moving somewhere with fewer RVs. Beautiful spot but the big rig culture has taken over.Report Check-In
Very beautiful beach on Bahia Concepcion. We stayed for 3 nights and paid 200 pesos per night. Did not pay all at once so we don't know about a different rate if you pay up front. Apparently Los Coyotes and Cocos beaches are run by the same concessionaire. A long term resident told me that a percentage of the fees are given to the government. We felt very safe at this location.Report Check-In
Lovely Beach, well maintained. Recycling bins for glass, aluminum, cans and so on. Pit toilets clean. Food, water, propane etc. is delivered to the sites from local businesses every day. Well worth the 200 Pesos a day.Report Check-In
Fabulous! 200 pesos per night with palapa. We stayed 3 nights. We could have spent our entire trip here.Report Check-In
we parked-up for 24hrs on a weekday out of season and nobody came from any money. The entrance gate is open and un-staffed. Beautiful beach/bay. Park at the very furthest corner to minimise road noise. It's worth getting out to waters around the largest island if you want to snorkel. water is clearer and there are more fish. we have our own kayak but they have kayaks for rent on the beach some days. very peaceful night.Report Check-In
dont follow gps from this app. you can type playa el coyote on google map. the sign is pretty small so dont miss it. we chose the site after you passed tiny road along the shores. it is a nice beach when it is not windy. there are so many vendors that come and go to offer you their stuff. ice cream every other day in the evening. clams everyday. and etc. we paid 200 pesos a night with palapa dont know if it would be the same without palapa. no signal no atm near by.Report Check-In
beach was amazing! quiet neighbors. went for a swim in the morning. a few vendors, no one asked me to payReport Check-In
Good place, no Sun After 5pm
Prendre les places tout au bout de la plage pour ne pas être dérangé la nuit par le bruit de la circulation, pas de point d'eau et 200 pesos la nuit. La plage est superbe et l'eau très claire
Bahia Concepcion is absolutely stunning with great sea life and incredible kayaking. This site was a good choice to enjoy it. The vendors will come and offer you anything... our neighbor rented kayaks for very little! Hot springs to the south are decent. Usually try to collect fees around noon or four, I was never there and didnt pay for three days. Technically they don't own the beach, so no hard feelings. Only facilities are outhouse to the south. Fantastic beach.
Island to the west has camping, caves, and so much life! Biolumones on the beach at night. Restaurant and market north on the road are pretty solid. Concepcion is one of the best bays in Baja, and you'll have to play the game to get access but it is very worth it.Report Check-In
Just stayed one night. A lot of truck noise though out the night. Had many sand flies- had about 20 red spots all over after leaving here.Report Check-In
As expected, it qualifies as the noisiest beach among the 4 or 5 around, but the noise is not constant : only when a truck comes by, you need to pause your conversation for 2 or 3 seconds. Why do people come here ? Long term'ers for the community. Short term'ers for the length of beach (easier to get a spot along the water).
Lots of services offered for extra fees : potable water, non-potable water, sewage truck on Sunday, laundry on Saturday (comes back on Monday), fruit and veggies, meals (tamales, shrimp cocktail, etc.), firewood, etc.
Restaurant in El Burro at walking distance. Social activities in same area, movie night, pig roast, etc.
We were expecting to pay $150mxp after the last reviews, but the guy made us pay 200 and he was a bit difficult about it (he stopped us on the way out).Report Check-In
Great beach, great people, great services.
Trucks are loud but they get quiet at night as only a few drive at night.
We stayed without palapa and paid $150mxn.
Ended up staying a second night after hiking over the mountain to a secluded bay and beach (well marked trail at south end of beach)
We might stop on our way north to try the hot springs.
Buen lugar, playa de arena blanca y agua azul turquesa.
perfecto para snorkel, paddle surf o kayak.
150 $ mex. la noche.
Super crowded; too crowded for us. Lots of long term seasonal gringos. The library was nice, we left a few books and took a few. Vendors came by offering food and horseback rides. Pit toilets were functional. We stayed one night only because it was bumper to bumper RVs and vans. We went north and found way less crowded beaches, which are all nice (the beaches that is)Report Check-In
Absolutely splendid on the northern edge, RV city at the southern most.Report Check-In
This is a wonderful beach especially for those with watercraft like kayaks and paddleboards. It is absolutely gorgeous and the small community of annual return campers are friendly. There's even a little outdoor "library." Camping is right next to the water, but be careful to not park too close a low tide or the tide could come in and you could find yourself in the water!Report Check-In
lots of months long residents, but very nice. plenty of pit toilets to choose from, but generally very unpleasant. there are hot springs on the right side of the bay.Report Check-In
Many others have commented on this really amazing place, so I will be brief. Arrived mid afternoon and found a nice spot with palapa (tiki house) for 200 pesos (a man will collect around 4:00pm). Enjoyed the sun and had a swim in the warm (not hot) water until about 3:30 when the sun went behind the mountain, so it got cool quick. The only real negative I can say about the place is the noise (all day and night) from the trucks and their motor brakes. Only stayed one night because of this noise.Report Check-In
Beautiful plates for camping snorkeling kayaking swimming and just playing having fun at the beach, The bathroom is terrible it’s a hole in the ground and it’s full of flies and there’s no shower,,,, besides that it is a perfect beach setting ,,, I definitely recommend itReport Check-In
Great spot. Lots of snowbirds but plenty of space to park our van. Right on the beach. We left earlier in the am and the high tide washed out the road a bit, we went slow and made it out fine. It’s close to the highway so a little loud at night. Highly recommend overall!Report Check-In
Wonderful place ! Paid 200 pesos for a night with palabras. We met others travelers it was very cool! No cell service.Report Check-In
Beautiful beach, drive past the rock to get to the far side. It’s further from the road, and a bit less crowded. People tended to come here to party, so there was a bit of noise – but incredible warm, turquoise water and great vibes. 150 pesos per nightReport Check-In
Stayed here 4 nights in our van without a palapa. Amazing spot truly one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever seen! the landscape and the ocean blows my mind. We paid 150 a night and got non drinking water from the owner with a tip of 10 peso. Mexican families here all day and never saw another overlanderReport Check-In
Torquoise waters. Beach lined with rv’ers, campers.
No facilities. Pit toilets too far from our spot.
In the evening a Jeep came around collecting 150 pesos to camp.
No service or WiFi.
Amazing place !!!! Maybe the best? Clear water turquoise and 20 min walk on sand beach, like a dream. Wind was not much at night. We stayed between the two beaches with no palapas (100$M). Just be careful, the water come's up in hight tide !! It was perfect day and night far from big RV's snowbirds who stayed more at the end of the second beach... no showers, no coverage, and didn't see toilets.Report Check-In
Calm beach with lots of 'permanent' snowbirds. We stayed in the middle of the two playas, a little turn out with a small sandy beach. Charged us 100,- peso.Report Check-In

we stayed at this campground for 4 nights and enjoyed it very much. Palapas rent for 150 pesos per night. Nice Bay to SUP and snorkel in.

One of the nicest places to camp in Baja. Quite calm waters that are perfect for swimming. Pit toilets are horrible so be prepared. Would highly recommend this spot however be prepared to be one your own (water, toilet, etc). Nobody came to collect money - so free night. There will be locals and snowbirds (US, Canadian) camping here all the time.Report Check-In
- 144 pesos per palapa per night
- 108 pesos for dry camping per night
- the rest as described by others
Very crowded campsite occupied by permanent residents for 2-3 months at a time. We ended camping on the narrow strip of beach between the two official campsites. Even though it was crowded the beach was still beautiful with whale sharks swimming in the shallow waters and luminescence at night.Report Check-In
Too crowded for us. 5US$/night, nasty pit toilets, didn't stay.Report Check-In

Dirt entrance to beach is north of the campsites at N26.72078, W111.91010. Beautiful beach with locals stopping by frequently offering food (tamales, empanadas, fruits, veg, seafood), nonpotable water, and textiles. There is a warm spring at low tide on the southeastern side of the bay, easiest to reach by swimming, but can also hike in. Great spot for kayaking with a couple of close islands to explore.Report Check-In

Fantastic Spot two meters from the turquoise waters. We met many nice people who stay at this beach for months (After Thanks-Giving, end of November, it will probably be very busy here). Some vendors come on over for water, fruits, vegetables, rolls, etc. Beside sufficient pit toilets, trash cans and nice Palapas no further camping facilities.
