Date Place Comment
March 1st, 2017 Camping Gramado

Nice, well maintained campground with dump station on site. Wifi works very well. Now 30R/P.

February 18th, 2017 Beach Camp, on the rocks

***Warning***: We really liked the spot and the view on top of the hill. But during the day several locals turned up and all warned us not to stay overnight. It might not be safe anymore. Supposedly armed robberies and drug dealings occured.

February 16th, 2017 Camping Estaleirinho

Campground with beach access and pool. Big rig note: no problem. In high season 60R/pP.

February 7th, 2017 Club Nautico Tacuaro

Nice and quiet place in mid week. We paid 30'000 pP with a big rig. They now have wifi.

January 26th, 2017 Rio Dulce

Nice free campsites along the river. There are several spots: for small rigs under trees and for bigger rigs there is a huge grass area at the end of the little road. Good fishing.

November 8th, 2016 Cerro Castillo Wild Camp

This place is closed for vehicles.

October 29th, 2016 Hotel Camping Suizandina

New prizes: 8000pP in low season, 10000pP in high season. Nice place to get a few days off from travelling. Good restaurant. Big rig note: everything above 3m in height is scratchy (tress im the driveway)

October 24th, 2016 Parque Nacional Llanos De Challe

Nice little campground. Very quiet in off season. 4000 pP.

October 24th, 2016 nationalparkpass conaf

Yep. You can get the annual pass here. But it's a new location. The right coordinates are: 27°21′45.42″S 70°20′01.89″W

September 18th, 2016 Colchane - Pisiga border

Coming from Chile to Bolivia: The Bolivian Customs at this boarder take away as well all the fresh food (like Chile does): veggies, fruits, meat, cheese. It's a very slow going boarder.

September 16th, 2016 Altazor Flight Park

Close to town. Not the prettiest surrounding, but worked well for us. 5000p/P.

September 13th, 2016 Hot springs of Polloquere, Salar de Surire

A stunning place. One of the most beautiful hotsprings we've seen so far.

September 11th, 2016 Chancacollo - Flamingo Viewpoint

Flamingo-Viewpoint at the Salar de Surire. Very quiet. No facilities. Beautiful landscape.

September 10th, 2016 Wildcamp with hot pot

An okey place to spend the night... Shelter from the wind nearby. But at our time of visit, the river had too less water for a bath.

September 9th, 2016 Sajama Tent Camp

Big rig note: At the beginning, the road up to the Geysirs is good (some small rivercrossings). But the last 2km get very narrow. But we made it with our 11m/15t truck.

September 8th, 2016 Thermal Baths

Just a car park. No facilities. But very quiet. Nice scenery and nice hot pools (30B/Person).

September 7th, 2016 Lavanderia

Good laundry. They wash with hot water. Good sevice!

September 4th, 2016 Suma Samawi Hostel

We camped outside the hostel for free and just paid 15Bol for the wifi. Really nice owner. Extremely quiet at night. It's a relaxing place!

August 30th, 2016 Hostal Casa Blanca (plus camping)

Good location to stay near Puno. Very quiet. Fast WiFi. Big rigs: it's tight, but doable. Not much space inside.

August 28th, 2016 Tinajani Canyon Campground

Nice canyon. Really worth a visit. Highly recommended. And so quiet. We liked it and did a short steep but scenic hiking trail.

August 26th, 2016 OLLANTAYTAMBO Municipal Parking

Big parking lot. Big rig note: if you drive from Cusco and want to avoid the narrow streets in the town, follow the truck route which goes around town on the left side just before the hughe wall. Then you have to drive a little bit back towards the town. It's possible to drive thru it (all the tourbusses do). But the other way might be easier.

August 25th, 2016 Salinas De Moras - Main Parking

It's better to arrive at late afternoon (the gate closes probably at 5pm). And get up early to see the salinas before the crowd arrives (arround 9am). Very quiet night.

August 23rd, 2016 Quinta Lala Camping

Nothing to complain. We had a nice and quiet stay.

August 18th, 2016 Wild camp at river

We went down to this spot after the hike to spend the night (very quiet). Otherwise it could have gotten difficult to get out of the parking at the trailhead the other morning (the first tour busses arrive at 6am).

August 17th, 2016 Rainbow Mountain trekking start

Big rig note: there are 1 or 2 almost leveled spots for big rigs. But you have to wait until the minibuses leave (16.00). Very quiet at night. Tight switchbacks and villages. Max. length 10m.

August 13th, 2016 Hughe Gravel Area by Lagunas Salinas

Hughe, quiet. Off the road. Nice view on Laguna Salinas. A bit high with 4352 m. The street up here from Arequipa has a height restriction of approx. 3.8 m, else bug rigs are fine.

August 12th, 2016 Toro Muerto

Very, very quiet place. Nice to spend the night here. You need sone time to explore the site to find some of the over 5000 petroglyphs. Really worth the drive! Also easy doable for big rigs!

August 10th, 2016 Cementerio de Chauchilla

Really nice spot to visit. Informative and interesting site. Very quiet at night. Lucky we drove up here.

August 9th, 2016 PN Paracas Visitor Center

Currently most roads are blocked and under construction. In our opinion not worth the visit until december.

August 5th, 2016 Soccer field with nice view

We found this nice place while we drove to Punta Winchus. Stayed here for the night. No one showed up. Big flat area, room for many vehicles. Nice view to the Cordillera Blanca.
