Description

ADMIN NOTE: users in 2016 and 2017 reported biting dogs, please be cautious.

Quinta La Huerta is a good spot to split your trip between Nazca and Cusco. Large nice grassy area for camping. Picnic tables under trees.
Showers and full flushing toilets, fruit trees. Option to buy dinner/breakfast. The owner, Ricardo, runs rafting trips on the river. The turnoff is at Km 424.

It appears they are upgrading the campsite. (upgrading it with a sledge hammer?)

We had no trouble with any of the pets on site.

Large grassy area, orchard and fruit plantations, restaurant, bar, toilets, showers, wifi, very hospitable owners and a very good weather to camp before reaching higher in the mountains. Ricardo Peralta provides rafting adventure tours along the area. His family are very friendly and cook a very nice and healthy ‘caldo de gallina’ (chicken soup)

Great place, just beside to the road, clean bathrooms, friendly people. You have to be a dog lover, friendly all of them ❤️ Could be a good idea if you have some repellent, there are some mosquitoes. You will find huge avocado trees, tables ready to use at the bottom of each tree. Could be a good place to stay 2 nights. There is no phone cell connection, no Movistar, neither Claro 🙄 sooo you will relax of the phone 😅 good luck and have fun !!

We love this place we came here in our way to and from cusco. On week days is super quiet. The old lady is lovely and treat us like sons. Of courae the faciliteis are not state of the art but you come here for the nature, resting and be secured. And for that the place is perfect, ine time we arrive late the gate was close but we honk and they open us. :)

Really great spot!!!! tons of cute little puppies, dogs, kittens and a sheep. Tons of room for all sizes of vehicles. Hopefully you like kids, because they are very excited about you. Bathrooms are clean, and the view is stunning! Total win.

The family are nice agreed and it's spacious and safe.

The toilets and "kitchen" are horribly dirty, no paper, no toilet seat, can't lock the door.

swimming pool is full of stagnant dirty green water with rubbish floating in it.

it also really frustrates me places that charge per car, not person...since it makes zero sense. I'm on my own, but pay the same as a family of 5?

This place is ok, but certainly not the grassy haven everybody else has made it out to be.

Lovely spot to stop for the night. Quiet and safe behind a closed gate. We slept 5 in van and tents, grassy and flat with heaps of space. 15 soles in total :)

Great spot! We arrived on a Sunday and the place was packed, we met some very friendly school children who were super interested in our van. Everyone cleared out by evening. A few other overlanders and some local campers. Clean bathrooms, a nice pool, and beautiful waterfall. 15s per car.

Hermoso lugar para descansar a mitad de trayecto Cusco- Nazca... sobre todo del caos de la ciudad. Excelente para motoviajeros!! Rodeado de árboles frutales y un hermoso cesped... la familia del camping es maravillosa, te hacen sentir parte de ella, muy atentos y amables. La comida casera es muuuuuuuy rica!! super recomendable!

What a perfect place to split the drive! Jose was so incredibly welcoming and kind. He offered coffee in the morning and liked to chat with us despite our imperfect Spanish. There is road noise and barking dogs, but we were so tired from such a long day it didn’t matter. We were glad to have a safe place off the caraterra and be able to support a nice local family. Highly recommended. 15 soles per car.

We love this place and family! No biting dogs (anymore?) only one friendly old dog and a puppy. Nice grass field and fruit trees. Toilet/shower nothing fancy but clean. We eat every day with the family together and give wat we want (donation) when we leave.

The perfect stop between Cuzco and Nazca - the loveliest family, beautiful setting under the trees and with picnic tables. Oh and friendly dogs. We also paid s/15 for 2 people and a van.

We had a very nice and quiet night.
The owners are super friendly and so are their dogs. They didn't even bark at night but wanted to play. Loved them.
Bathroom was clean, we didn't try the showers.
Price was 15 for two and the car. Cheap.
Recommended stay on the way between Cusco and Nazca.

Great place to spend the night with plenty of space. Very kind people and dogs here. We paid 20 for one car and one tent for three people. Enjoyed our time here!

Place is completely overrun by cats. Freaking awesome. I showed up at dusk, only one here, and Jose split his dinner with me. Going to tip this guy 100% tomorrow.

Maybe not as idyllic as described, but pretty darn close.

Good place to stop on the loooonnng way from Nasca to Cusco.

Decent place. Nothing special.

Dogs have been no issue (other then they wanted to play all the time)😂

Na beira da estrada próximo a comunidade de Yacca. Lugar tranquilo, família de anfitriões muito atenciosa.

A noite cachorro late um pouco e como é na beira da estrada tem um pouco de barulho da pista. Nada que atrapalhe uma boa noite de sono.

Não tem água quente e banheiros são um pouco precários.

Wi-Fi na sede da Associação Comunitária ao lado, senha com os proprietários.

Valor 15 soles (1 carro / 1 pessoa)

Friendly campground with toilet, showers, electricity in a nice environment. Grassy place, mountains around. Reasonably well maintained. Water comes high from the mountains and is potable. The swimming pool was empty and being cleaned when we visited. Central barbecue and fireplace. PRN 15 (2 adults, camper)

Beware of the dog!!! Just bite me!!! People in the campsite are really nice. But when you get bitten, everything looks like crap. Bathrooms were super dirty, site is dirty. Quoting another comment "not as idyllic" as you imagine. Ok for spending the night.

One of the dogs bite me pretty hard, as I was approaching the house to charge my laptop it was 7:30. They said it has it vaccines, but I will find tomorrow I'm Cusco what to do. Beware special if you travel with kids!!!

Great lovely family. I was cycling from Cusco and after the 56km uphill I was absolutely K.O. They let me camp for free, and invited me for mate and postre :) Stop here of you get a chance, even if just for almuerzo/cena. 5 stars

Really nice place to stay! 15 soles per night for 2 persons.
Large grassy field with fruit trees and swimming pool.
A couplet of nice farm animals around. Very friendly family.

Perfect stop between Cusco and Nazca. The family is really welcoming especially the older lady. Her garden is a gem of fruits, trees and farm animals. There are Picnic tables available. There are now showers (cold water only) and toilets. Unfortunately there was no water the next morning so she could not cook breakfast for us. Only charged 15/s for 3 people and a van. Definitely stop here to help their business, sleep in a safe place and enjoy some Peruvian warm welcome.

Paid S./15 for two people overnight. They have a restaurant on saturdays and sundays, including Cuy that they raise on the farm. When we got there Sunday at dusk no one was there. Dinner S./7 for fried chicken, potatoes etc. They had a few WWOOFers, so we also had breakfast all together with the family for S./5. Nicest family we met in Peru. Lots of farm animals/family pets that are very affectionate. Only Claro sims work here. We had to check a couple things online, so the family asked the nearby government building(?) if we could use theirs and it was no problem. Some hiking in area. Possible to bathe in the river. Glad we stopped here - the family and animals made it one of our favorite spots in Peru.
