December 6th, 2017 Camping Elimar

Great spot, owner is very generous, clean toilets and kitchen. Fast wifi. Far better than to stay in the dusty town. Surf spot 100 mts south, empty most of the time, watch out for the rocks.

December 3rd, 2017 River crossings

River crossing, this is a shortcut, and the river may look shallow. We couldn't make it with our 2WD RAV4 and had to be pushed back by some nice locals.

November 27th, 2017 Punta El Cacique

Beautiful lake, beautiful place, 200pp camping, we were alone most of the time. Wifi was fast, toilets needs improvement. No kitchen but we could cook for ourselves, get groceries before you get here. Overall recommend.

November 20th, 2017 Hostel Rancho Esperanza, Jiquilillo

So much better than the south of Nicaragua... super chill place, eco friendly, good food, empty surf spots.. Owner is helpful, they contribute a lot to the community. This is our favorite place in Nica.

November 16th, 2017 Hotel Caleta

Good place to spend the night before crossing. Nice owners, grocery stores nearby.

November 6th, 2017 Lagos de Colon Zona de Camping

Beautiful place, very safe and calm during weekdays at least.

November 3rd, 2017 Posada Isabel Hotel

Nice and quiet. Recommend.

November 1st, 2017 Jose Manuel

This guy is just amazing. We went there for a rear shocks replacement. The parts we got from Autozone weren't good for our SUV although we confirmed the model... So he came with us to return the bad parts to AZ, and then to get compatible parts on another store. Then, back to his garage, although it is poring rain he finished the work. Lastly he asked payment only for the actual work, not including the at least one hour of driving around. Of course I insisted to pay for the entire service.

And this is all during the Dia del muertes, times that he doesn't usually work at all.

Amazing guy.

October 30th, 2017 La Tradicion Posada

Very nice place and town.

October 19th, 2017 Hostal Mondala

The closets you'll get to the beach in this area. Amazing view, helpful staff. Has parking for private cars and small SUVs. Don't know about bigger rigs. Can camp there or take a nice cabana. Shared kitchen and a store nearby. Access to a beginners surf spot by foot, but cheap taxi to the other points.

October 13th, 2017 Public Parking

This place is in wrong location - it is located at 17.05978, -96.72989

October 13th, 2017 La Cumbré

Backpackers place, mostly there for the famous mushrooms but even if you're not into it, it has the most beautiful sunset and view in general. They serve great hot chocolate and also very cheap mezcal (10p!). We parked our small SUV about 50 meters from the place, on the street for 3 days, absolutely no problems. Street parking for big rigs doesn't seem possible. There is also a nice and easy hike up to the forest right near the hostel.

October 13th, 2017 Public Parking

Nice, quite at night, very nice owner. Let us use warm showers. 10 pesos per hour. Please note, the current location in the map is a bit forward than the place really is. Look for the entrance as it is in the photos. The address is Mier Teran 405.

October 11th, 2017 Metepec

A lovely little town, just an hour outside of Mexico City. Very Artsy, with some beautiful clay studios, you can actually see some of the art work decorating the town houses. Very unique style (see photos). Several dining options, but best to go to the market on Monday - tons of options of very authentic Mexican food made for the locals. One hour from a very beautiful and easy hike to a Volcano named Nevado de Toluca with two beautiful lakes in the crater.

October 1st, 2017 San Juan del Lago

Amazing place to stay. planned to stay just for the night, ended up staying three nights. More than just an RV park, they are creating an ecological, self sufficient farming expat community, that will cooperate with the local people. They are currently looking for people to join them. Host is an inspiring person.

September 28th, 2017 Stoners Surf Camp

80 pesos per person. We slept in our SUV. Mosquito situation wasn't too bad in September. The town itself is very nice. There is an ATM on the way to town, near the navy base. There is a good seafood restaurant on the beach, couple of restaurants from this place - Restaurante El Amigo.

September 27th, 2017 Mar a Villas
