We spent two nights here while exploring Villa de Leyva and some of the surrounding attractions. It should be noted that this green field is adjacent to a large school, and also serves as the teachers’ parking lot and staging area for late morning busing of the younger students. Other than students waking to school around 6:30am, it was very quiet, mostly level, and is an ideal location for walking into the heart of the colonial village. Wonderful views of the mountains and the clouds that hang in the high valleys. A bit muddy after a rain but nothing that impeded access

We spent 5 nights here enjoying the town and the surrounding areas. For free camping, this is by far the best location in Villa de Leyva. Big field, very easy walk to town, great for our dog. Felt safe leaving the vehicle here at night. And, very quiet for being so close to town. There are some bad biting bugs (like noseeums) in the grass to be aware of.

As described, free huge grassy area right near the main square. No bathrooms, but there are 24hour car parks nearby with baños.

We arrived on a Saturday night and enjoyed such a quiet evening. We loved the fact we could grill outside too. Five minutes to the main plaza the next morning. Just perfect!

Large flat spot next to the town center. Perfect for big rigs, it is next to a school so expect a lot of children from 12-2pm.

Shady place very nice and secure. Attention is paying early December for the Festival of Lights

Report Check-In

Good overnight place, but park as far as possible from the school. Children are attracted by the camper, some like to be brave towards their friends and ... they don’t really damage it, but push and open what’s possible ... even stick chewing gum on it. Very early they are playing around during weekdays.

We stayed 2 nights instead of 1 because spot is so quiet and just 5 min walking from main plaza. Jimena is living just in front and she speaks english and french and can help for everything. She is very nice.

très bon spot, grand espace en herbe, très tranquille la nuit. un peu bruyant le jour avec l'école à côté quand les enfants viennent faire leurs cours de music mais rien de bien méchant.

Free parking! Fairly quiet, schoolkids in the AM. No water. No trash. No bathroom. But the walk to town is short. Felt safe and folks were friendly. And it was free!

Free. Large grassy public parking lot. Re-affirmed with Visitor Information that it was o.k. to park there. Quiet. Easy walk to everything in town. At night town and parking lot is lit up so safe and easy to walk around at night.
