Latest Check-Ins

You can enter the flat part behind the hills when you take the dirt road on the right side (street coming from LaPaz) before the smalls hills. Drive a little bit and take another dirt road on the left side. Here you’ll find plenty of flat space to camp. The hills protect you from the street but you can hear the cars.
No 4WD needed.

Report Check-In

Stayed the opposite side off the main road. Quiet and locals came to check and were fine with us overnighting

Report Check-In

Warning - we came here together with our friends in a sprinter van, two chilean plated cars, they arrived about an hour before us. When it got dark, about 4-5 cars came to the spot (it's basically middle of a field between two villages) and roughly 20 people walked out and started to look with flashlights in our cars.
As we were in the sprinter, after discussing what we should do I decided I'll try to speak to them - they started very angrily speaking to me saying "son chilenos!", several times. After I thoroughly explained them, as nice as possible, that we're not chileans and proved them by showing a sticker on our car from Slovakia, they calmed down a bit (took about 5-10 minutes of a debate), they asked to see an ID (still didn't believe I wasn't chilean). After that, I asked if we could stay there or should move somewhere else, they said we can't stay there, because "some bad things have happened here".
We didn't think about if it was a warning or a threat and when we said that we'd leave, they left us as soon as we started packing. Went to the nearest iOverlander spot and stayed at the main square of the next village.
Overall, nothing happened, but I definitely wouldn't stay there, especially with a chilean car. They probably just saw two chilean cars heading to their field almost at night and thought we're the bad guys. The anti-chilean mood (google "war of the pacific") is still strong here...
