Now is US$12 per person per night to camp. Couldn’t negotiate. Yes, it’s nice. No, I don’t think it’s worth that much. We spent a nice cool night, but is very pricey. All the packages are over US$20 with lunch. If you only want a guide to walk you to the coffee plantations or laguna verde is $5
Probably would be a lot of fun for kids

A big coffee plantation with old western wagons and tipis to stay in.
They now have packages, e.g. for $15.99 you get the entrance fee, a meal (‘steak’ with delicious coffee-bbq sauce) and a 50min horse-back ride up the coffee plantation!

Nice quiet and private spot for campers. $5 per person entry and $5 per person to camp. Good food at the restaurant. Showers hot, dog was welcome. We hiked up to the coffee plantation, took about an hour. Overall a great place

Nice Place, very friendly Owner, hot shower, bathrooms, fire pit. You hear some animals in the morning but beside of that very quiet. 10USD per person. Possibility to do a guided hike to the volcano next to it for 5USD pp.

We spent a night here. Agreed that it's beautiful but too expensive for us at $20 at night for just camping. They do have hot water in the showers now!

so with this is a very fun eco park made for families and school groups to come visit for events. this is not a rv type campground with hook ups and such. they have a camping area that's really designed for tents vs overland rigs. but the location is stunning. the real downside to this place is the new cost. it's 20 to camp for two. the new prices are 5 for entrance and 5 for camping per person! so that's 20 for two. if this included full hookups and wifi then maybe. but there are no hookups at the campground area. they will allow you to get water from the hose down by the restaurant, and charge your phones though. at $10 per night it's a charmer at $20 I am not sure it's worth it. if you come here come from juayaya as the road is paved all the way here. if you cross from guatemala and your gps says to go and enter from the north, don't listen. the road is very bad and almost impassible. better to go south to juayaya and then drive back north to the park. big rigs can fit but once you turn to enter the gate there is a tree covered canopy and at 3.5m we snapped some small branches.

Nice, quiet park. You can make a few excursions (horsback riding, vulcano hike). Big rig friendly. Watch out on your way up for nasty topes!

Great place for tent or car/camper. $8/person. Bring exact change for cost and tip as no one had change for the horse ride or camping fee. Showers and rest rooms Are very clean and good quality. Great fire, and it was also windy for us in the morning. Location is on the right hand side of the roAd driving northwest. Small signs on the gate, tap your horn and someone will pop out in a few minutes. If you pass the tienda on the right hand side, you've gone too fAr.

$5 per person per night. Beautiful place. The entrance gate was non descript and locked when we arrived but tapped horn and person came. Quiet mid week. A few great fire rings. For us really windy so no fire and only stayed one night. So windy couldn't really leave tent.
