Sounds like it's not posible anymore to stay here. Roberto rented out the place.

We had a very warm welcome with cold rum from Roberto. He's a super nice person, who likes to share stories. The restaurant is closed for the season, but he was there anyways, hosting a cyclist.
At the moment there's only a toilet, which you have to flush with a bucket from a barrel. WiFi works until well after dark. He plans to build a permanent hostel and campground, which would be awesome. The place is already changing to a beautiful green garden, with plants from all over the world.

Roberto fue un excelente anfitrión. Desde el primer momento nos recibió con gran amabilidad y ofreciéndonos todo lo necesario. una gran persona. La posada azul. actualmente se encuentra cerrada debido a los fuertes vientos, pero eso no nos impidió que nuestra estancia fuera la mejor. Tiene baños, ducha, agua, electricidad e Internet por paneles solares hasta las 7.30 pm. Lugar perfecto y super seguro para pasar la noche.
Un gran saludo y agradecimientos a Roberto.

Roberto is a sensational person, he has a giant heart and received us with great affection and a very cold soda! We parked in front of the restaurant which was closed, but he came quickly to the first whatsapp contact. The energy is through solar panels, so the wi-fi works from 7am to 7pm as long as it's sunny. there are restrooms and drinking water available too, totally free, to help all types of travellers.

Roberto é uma pessoa sensacional, tem um coração gigante e nos recebeu com muito carinho e uma gaseosa bem gelada! Estacionamos em frente ao restaurante que estava fechado, mas ele veio rapidamente ao primeiro contato pelo whatsapp. A energia é através de painéis solares, então o wi-fi funciona das 7 as 19h enquanto tiver sol. tem banheiros e água potável disponível também, totalmente grátis, para ajudar todo tipo de viajantes.

A nice overnight visit with Roberto, who offered us a local beer and a local cola and some genuine conversation (in very easy to understand Spanish:) According to Roberto, there is no wifi available and the water that he has available is in a barrel. We used that water for flushing the toilet by bucket. It was windy and dusty during our visit. The restaurant was closed due to the dust. Roberto uses solar power for his restaurant so there is no available plug in power either. These changes should be noted from earlier reviews. Roberto had a paper money collection so if you have any (small) bills from other countries to donate, that’s really what he treasures the most, beyond conversation with travelers. He also appreciates a short (1 minute) video for FB, a pic together, and an entry in his visitors’ book, all of which seem like a reasonable exchange for his hospitality. It’s a harsh environment on the outside but Roberto is working to green his property. It reminded us a little bit of Coco’s Corner in Baja, minus the women’s undergarments hanging from the ceiling lol. This was a much more G-rated experience

Yup, this guy's the real deal. Like others said, message in advance as he might be out running errands, but in my case, I was only two hours away and he invited me and my motorcycle inside his store with open arms! Thank you so much for letting me rest and heal, Roberto. Con exitó y hasta luego.

We contacted Roberto by WhatsApp as he prefers to know in advance if you are coming. Very friendly guy ! Like to talk and welcome travelers! Very welcoming atmosphere! He doesn't accept money! We stayed only one night . But share some good moments with him and other ioverlanders. If you are looking for a place to stay and rest ....the best option around!

I contacted Roberto on whatsapp and he was very helpful and let us stay there the same night. He was not present unfortunately but sent a friend who took care of us, sold us drinks and showed us around. Idf you want food they can arrange in the restaurant. The place is next to a road so a bit noisy at night. No shower, toilets available, flushing with buckets of water.

Roberto is a friend to any traveler. I was biking, and this is the perfect spot to stop between Trujillo and Chiclayo. After his warm welcome, we went into town for dinner. In the Posada Azul, he has a mattress I could sleep on and we brought the bicycle indoors, so it was very safe. There is wifi and some outdoor toilets flushed with a bucket.

Roberto is a very friendly and welcoming host. He loves travelers and has received a lot of them. There is a pit toilet and the wifi is on/off. Safe at night and the traffic calms down around 10pm. Good spot, we will go again.

Roberto is the nicest person we meet going to north of Peru. Very nice spot to rest and have a great conversation with roberto. We were very well received and had a peaceful night. If you're heading north or heading down to Lima, don't miss the chance to stop at Posada Azul and meet him.

Roberto very much likes to host overlanders. We stayed one night on our drive up north to find a safe place during the expected street blocks. He did not accept money but a beer in company was well appreciated. A very nice guy.

Restaurante (and resting place).

It has a large car park at the front and the rear for camper vans, or you can sleep inside.

Very nice stop if you come from North. Roberto will make you feel better if you feel blue. He is one of those simple and humble man that will welcome you like if you were family. If you stay long enough you will have the chance to meet is mother.
You can thank him with foreign bank note or flags as he collection them. Some travelers also offered him a plant (there is a "vivero" in the town of Guadalupe) he will plant them in front of the restaurant.

Here is an easy place to stop along the PanAm Hwy. Roberfo is very friendly and will welcome you immediately. (He videotaped an interview with us.) You can recharge your devices but he operates on solar panels and so more electricity is not available. No wifi. Some noise from highway. You will need to pour a bucket in the toilet to flush. Seems safe and secure..

Must stop for cyclists and travellers. Very good man. We took bucket showers (the water is warmer than gas station showers because he keeps it in the sun), charged our phones a bit and shared our tequila and spare foreign dollars with Roberto. The food looked good but we had to move on. Wish we had arrived in the evening to spend more time. This place is very tranquilo.

Amenities* to be updated - Restaurant open, pets allowed, electricity available, camping allowed, kitchen can be used. Needless to say Roberto is one of the most genuinely nice and happy people! He accepts travellers of all kinds and at any time. He does not accept money. He prefers meeting people and having a nice interesting chat. He also collects currencies as souvenirs, so do add to the collection however small and make sure you do some nice art work in his travellers log. We even went to Guadalupe to meet his wonderful family. Highly recommend this place!

Roberto is a fantastic person and is very welcoming towards all types of travellers. I turned up with my bicycle and he welcomed me with open arms, took me to visit his family and showed me around the town of Guadalupe. If your passing this way, don’t hesitate to stop by and say hello to Roberto, you won’t regret it.

Roberto is very happy to receive overlanders and is extremely helpful and nice. He doesn't charge anything to stay but is always interested in bills of any denomination from other countries to add to his collection.

He has a guest book with the kind notes of many overlanders, an interesting artifact all by itself.

At the moment the restaurant is closed, although he plans to open it again after renovations, but a bathroom is available.

+ Roberto is really nice and welcoming and loves to meet travelers (has a guest book and takes lots of videos) he wants to build an Overlander spot in the back

+ Roberto went grocery’s shopping with us on his moto because we didn’t have any food left for dinner and there is nothing close by

+ for free! And a good spot for one night!

- bathrooms didn’t have any running water (had to use baskets with water)

- at the moment the common area is a restaurant which is under construction (so not very comfy)

- quiet close to the main street and can hear the traffic

Roberto is one of the nicest people we've met. Truly hospitable, he just loves having travelers around. He will certainly talk your ear off. You can use the restaurant kitchen if you want, and roberto filled our water tank from a large reservoir in the parking lot. We were very surprised to find such a nice spot out here!

Roberto collects flags and coins, so if you have any from your country consider donating to his collection!

We just arrived after a hot and dusty ride up from Trujillo and Robert couldn’t had given us a warmer welcome. His passion is meeting people from around the world and his place is a perfect stop over on an otherwise uninteresting road. There’s plenty of space to throw up your tent both inside and outside, a kitchen and baño too. Lots of other travellers are passing through so it makes a great meeting place.

Stopped to cool down our engine and eat lunch. Right off the PanAm. No one was here but bathrooms were open, traveler stickers on the windows of the building, nice gardens. Good spot to rest in the middle of nowhere.
