Campsite with stunning views of the Pacific Ocean and dolphins playing in the water. Electricity / water at site (if you opt for one. It is beautiful to camp right at the beach). The large bathroom (separately for men and women) has two toilets without doors and two showers with a curtain. However, the showers are nice and hot. (Originally $ 10 / day)

We camped at the RV park next door but came here for dinner. Fidel is super friendly and an excellent host. We had a lobster dinner and some local wine. There were a couple of locals here enjoying a drink. Very friendly people and atmosphere as though we're dining with family. We'll definitely camp here next time.

Hello
Friendly owner who live here, so you aren't alone the night.
Correct shower with hot water but low presure like everywhere here I think.
Nice view on the sea.
The dogs are friendly and don't disturb you.
We pay 200 pesos for our family of 5.
You have water (no sure it's drinking) and a hole in the sand seems a place for dump(but I haven't use it).
You have a G4 connexion and if you need there is the wifi near the house and it seems correct.
We stay 2 quiet nights but it's the call of the south who say tu us to go...
Croods approved.

Great place. Fidel is awesome - very accommodating. Just one other couple here right now. But they said there has been a revolving cast of travellers. Maps.me couldn't route right to the campo - no problem, good signage.

We'll be back, for sure.

Nice place. We were alone. Endless sandy beach. Wifi was ok.

Fidel is a very nice person. He speaks some English. The place is a big sand / dirt lot right on the big and very wide sand beach. It is a bit a windy spot, but this is great for Wind- or Kite surfing. (Wind mostly side onshore, so safe). The electric outlet d worked well. Fidel is building a Restaurant, with new showers and toilets. It should be opwaden in a month or so. He already cooked me a dinner (Langosta) which was excellent. I was the only guest. Will be a great place to eat, behind a wind protecting glass wall with view over the Pacific. Will for sure stop there again.

Pulled in late. Had checked out El Soccorito RV. Came here instead. It was dark and Daughter answered the door and called Papa. Told us to camp where ever. We were the only ones here. We pitched our tee-pees under a palapa. Fidel arrived. Very friendly guy who looks you right in the eye. He has been nothing but hospitable. He and his wife work hard to keep the place clean from all the locals that frequent the place. They work keeping the area maintained for the fisherman from what I saw.On my daily walks on the beach I have always returned with as much garbage as I can carry. The wind is a cruel mistress sometimes with trash. As a former commercial fisherman it was quite a pleasure to see the men launching Pangas these mornings as they ply their craft. Amenities. Toilets and Shower worked GRATE for us. The Wi-Fi works grate IMO. Obviously the farther away you go from the signal. well the worse it gets. I have used the showers. Was very hot. Have had no issues with water other than low flow. We have ventured into town a few times and have been greeted warmly everytime. Folks wave hello. There are wildflowers abound in the streets we have walked down. Fidels place is covered in Verbena and what seems to be a variety of Calendula. We paid 200 pesos a night. Used the electricity in the next palapa to charge devices. Have cooked in the fire pit quite often. The sanddollars on the beach are amazing. There are times when its a little busy round here as this is a well used beach..but they go home and its quiet again. I have loved staying here and have felt very welcome. Fidel keeps a sharp eye on the place. Some kids partied in here on Saturday night an left a mess. I had it picked up before he woke as he says hello every morning. We paid 200 pesos a night. We said our goodbyes and paid a little extra. I would not hesitate to support this mans family business again and hope it shall come to pass.

Stayed two nights here; was not very busy; Fidel is a nice guy and his dog is very friendly; the toilets and the showers are rustic but works very well; the big sandy beach is perfect for walking and jogging; in the early morning the local fishermen coming and going with their cars and boot trailers for fishing...was pretty interesting!

Report Check-In

Very basic. On a nice beach but not really much shelter. Wifi works well and power too if you park near the house. Washrooms very "rustic" as they say. Good for a night. We were the only people here in mid October. $200 pesos.

Fidel's is a nice enough place - Fidel himself is a nice chap, but the park itself looking a bit tired. It's a massive flat sand parking lot with 3 palapas. Our palapa smelled of urine and needed to be swept/raked of garbage. The bathrooms are a bit far away but the water in the showers was plenty warm. Wifi, like most of Baja, was slow but mostly worked.

$10 USD/180 pesos for two people (one vehicle). Kids (ages 3 and 6) were free.

Report Check-In

The owner of campground arrived at 6 pm and he charged 200MX$ for us and our Defender; very pricey for what you get.
There was nobody on site (just an American trailer) so we couldn't get the wifi password till Fidel (the owner) arrived at 7pm to collect money.

It works only near of reception house.
Toilets and showers were open, clean but a little far away from beach.

Facilities have seen better days but beachfront. Road in could be tricky in the rain

Report Check-In

Je déconseille. ... Électricité pas suffisante pour faire fonctionner un micro ondes, le Wi-Fi est quasi nul que ce soit au premier palapas ou à l'accueil la puissance est la même : 56 ko/s!!!!! Ne remplissez pas votre réservoir d'eau ici elle est saumâtre (même si il est écrit le contraire)
Palapas en mauvais état et je ne suis même pas allé voir les douches, l'aspect extérieur m'a suffit. ..
La seule chose de bien, c'est le patron Fidel, très sympa ! !

Great spot. Fidel brought us a huge pile of firewood for 100 pesos. We're we're the only one there probably because the road to Fidel has been damaged a bit by last's week heavy rains but we made it easy in our Sprinter 2wd
Great sunset, dolphins in the bay
The palapas have seen better days but nice nonetheless
Wifi is spotty
Easy beginner surf spot right out front
Paid $200 pesos for 2 people

tried to get to Fidel's today, but the road was impassable. 4 wheel drive would have made it, our older roadtrek would have gotten stuck in the mud. we were looking forward to Fidel's lobster dinner, but ended up at Don Eddie's instead.

Report Check-In

Pros: Great beach, safe place to sleep. Stayed 2 days at 150 per day. Cons: Fidel asks too much money for the food he makes. Clams on the beach sell for 60 pesos the dozen, so make sure you negociate the price.

Report Check-In

Stayed here, we were the only campers. Fidel was very friendly, spoke English. Only 3 palapas, super windy all day. We were only able to get 4 gallons of water out of the spout. Lots of Mexicans paying 20 pesos to play on the beach and dunes right in front of us.

Report Check-In

Good stopover, really nice owner, right at the beach and nice palapas with electricity, water and even light. Wifi works around reception and in the first palapa. We were the only ones there (low season end september) and paid 200 pesos but normal price is 300 pesos per vehicle.

Spent the night at Fidel's on our own with no one else around. Beach is excellent as is Fidel's hospitality. Get him to fry you up a couple lobster tails.

very nice place. hot showers and clean bathrooms. WiFi next to the house was okay. a lot of people at the beach with their cars driving around.

Report Check-In

People like Fidel are what travelling through Latin America is all about. Super hospitable and friendly. Invited us into his home for cold beer and fresh lobster without hesitation. There are separate male and female shower blocks with hot showers and flushing toilets. Camping on the beach can be windy but Fidel has 3 palapas with tarps on the upwind side for a wind break. The place was hit by a Tsunami a few years back so these three are what remains. $10 a night but he was open to negotiation for multi-night stays so long as you're friendly. To be honest, I'll be paying the full price plus extra for the beers and lobster without the slightest hesitation.

Report Check-In

Great spot by the beach. Dunes and trees help guard from the wind. Only one other couple there in February. Equivalent of $8USD for two people. Pet friendly but there were 4-5 dogs roaming around so cuidado if you have smaller pets but they seemed friendly. Decent bathrooms with curtains on the stalls now. HOT water in the shower. Saw RV hookups but didn't try them. Great first night in Baja!
