April 6th, 2016 Masi's Place - Surf Camp Maguellines

Nice camping in front of a surf break. Quincho with kitchen and bathrooms have hot showers. 10000 for 2 people and vehicle.

March 31st, 2016 Coco's Surf Camp

Great place to camp in front of a great surf break. Bathrooms and cold showers. Beautiful views. 6000 for 2 people

March 26th, 2016 Rio Lingue

Camping in front of a good surf break. People come for the day here to picnic but even on a weekend no one camped here over night so we had the place to ourselves.

March 22nd, 2016 Lago Gutierrez

Great campsite with good facilities. Hot showers, dish washing stations, electricity and lights at camp, fire pits, campsites on the lake. Don't think they have wifi but we didn't ask. 120 per person

March 16th, 2016 ITAHUE dried fruit & nuts

This is a great store to buy all the dried foods you need to do the O or W hike. They have dried tomatoes onions garlic and mushrooms in addition to all the fruits and nuts for trail mix

March 3rd, 2016 Bosch Carservice

We had a couple broken leaf springs and went here to get it fixed. We have had to have the same thing fixed in Santiago so we know how much it costs and they charged us nearly 3x more at this place. Labor is expensive and we believe overstated. We also waited 3 days to get our car back. Not too happy.

February 15th, 2016 El Refugio

The place to vehicle camp is actually to the left when you pull in, near the white buildings with no signs. This is actually a hospedaje that lets you camp and use their bathrooms and kitchen area for 80per person (not to be confused with the tent only camping below that charges 100 per person and has their own separate facilities). Rarely is the dueno Juan or his mom there, so just park and they will come by sometime during the day. There is a shared bathroom and kitchen in the building in back down the set of stairs, just go on in. And if no one is staying in the upper house they will let you use that kitchen and bathroom. No one was there when we were there so we had the place to ourselves!

January 31st, 2016 Rustica Patagonia

This place is great if you plan to leave your car for hiking (1000 per day) or just if you want roc camp near the river. Hot showers, a Refugio to hang out in, and laundry service. 4000 per person to camp

January 22nd, 2016 Vientos Del Sur

Vehicles can park inside the gate or along the street. Ok wifi that reaches to your car if you park near the corner (opposite of where you think the signal might be strongest). Nice hot shower, potable water. 4000 CLP per person. Area for tent campers as well. Can negotiate price of not using all the services.

January 17th, 2016 Yelcho En La Patagonia

Price for Jan high season 20000 CLP for a site! No bueno.

January 14th, 2016 Residencia Nicol

A hotel/ camping with a very nice family. Camping is 2000 per person (vehicle parking area and also a tent camping area available) Potable water , hot showers, and they have wifi although we could never connect. Good place to stay while waiting for the ferry. You can also do laundry for 2500 per load. Someone told us a room here is 7000.

January 3rd, 2016 Complete Turistico Club De Pesca & Camping

Good size camping spots in trees along the lake with picnic tables and fire pit. Bathrooms and hot showers. 4500 per person. Good fishing. It's busy season now and we still managed a lakefront spot, however on the weekend there was some loud music from some campsites till late. Weekdays it was really quiet.

December 14th, 2015 Juan Torro Campground

Campsite by the river that is ok. A lot of the campgrounds in the Cajon de Maipo area charge 10000 per person and here we told Juan we sleep in our car, not a tent, and he only charged 10000 for both of us.

December 5th, 2015 Camping Playa Puertocillo

Great campsite in the forest at the beach. Cool town and beautiful beach with surf. Bathrooms, showers, a lot of space. 16,000 to camp

December 2nd, 2015 Bahia Marina

Camping on the beach (behind a fence) for 13,000 for 2 people. Hot showers, wifi, campfire pits and a picnic table at each site. Apparently gets pretty busy on weekends during the summer, but we were here during the week and it was very quiet with only a couple other campers. Ps the place next store called camping bosque looks abandoned/closed

November 23rd, 2015 Bolivia Lavado

DO NOT GO HERE. Awful disgusting "car wash" that is ripping off foreigners because they are in iOverlander. They tried to charge me $150 Bolivians for A Terrible car wash plus diesel spray. They lied and said all the other car washes in town use salt water, which is not true. This is an example of a business who is getting business off of iOverlander and ripping people off. Plus the car wash is filthy. There are much better options as you head out of town toward San cristobal. I paid $70 bolivians at a different carwash for complete wash plus diesel spray

November 19th, 2015 SEGUROS ILLIMANI S.A.: Insurances for neighbour countries of Bolivia

It's actually across the street at Clle Loayza No. 233, Edificio Mcal. de Ayacucho, 10th floor. Very easy process to get insurance for Bolivia, chile, and Argentina. Fill out paperwork one day and receive policy on the next day.

November 19th, 2015 SEGUROS ILLIMANI S.A.: Insurances for neighbour countries of Bolivia

Wrong location. See other segura Illimani iOverlander spot

November 19th, 2015 Achocalla gas

We were able to negotiate a price for gasoline

October 24th, 2015 Hitchhikers Backpackers Hostel

Was a perfect place to stay in Lima. Make sure to make a reservation at least 1 week in advance. Location is perfect. We did a week of Spanish lessons at Perwayna School, and that was fantastic as well

October 23rd, 2015 AUTOLAC CAR SERVICE

Muy muy amable. Renzo was so fantastic. He made going to the mechanic a fun experience! His team fixed all of our troubles - brakes, sway bar, new battery and he even helped us get some important aluminum wielding done. Renzo is an amazing guy.

October 9th, 2015 El Inti Surfcamp - Hospedaje

We paid 20 soles a person to park here and use all the facilities. Internet, shower, kitchen, patio. We absolutely loved the vibe here. Owners and staff are wonderful.

October 4th, 2015 EL Faro Adventure Resort

We paid 45 soles or $15 per night. Camped in parking lot. Very nice facilities. Amazing pool. 15 minutes walk to point surf break. Wind surfing / Kiting out front. We loved this place. Very very friendly owner Jenny.

September 30th, 2015 Wild camping in Lobitos

Great place to stay and surf and kite. We paid Neto's cabanas 10soles to use bathroom, shower and water. Internet is another 5 soles per device. This spot is very windy.

September 15th, 2015 Coco

Great spot on the beach. At first we thought we were too tall to enter the gate, but Sami the owner let us know there is a beach entrance that we could use.

September 13th, 2015 Cielo Del Pacifico

A hotel/hosteria right on a very chill and beautiful part of the beach. They have a great beach front parking lot where we camped and they gave us access to bathrooms and outdoor shower. Surfing out front too. This is a much chiller option than canoa, which is a zoo. We paid $15 for the night. Restaurant available too, but closes at 5pm. Better to show up before 5pm or you might not find anyone here

September 11th, 2015 Airport Parking "San Jose"

$5/night. You can camp here too for same price. Good wifi, bathrooms. Place is awesome. Free quick transport to airport. Great spot

August 25th, 2015 Finca Sommerwind

Wonderful place to recharge our batteries after several days of driving and crossing the border from Colombia. Hans gave us some good recommendations for Galapagos and Amazon tours. You can leave your rig here if flying from Quito

August 23rd, 2015 Casa del Rio

We were able to camp for 15000 pesos per person including breakfast. Gravel area for rigs. Great place to stay if you plan to do some hiking in the area

August 23rd, 2015 Camp Chalet Guamuez

Free but we had a lovely trout dinner at the very good restaurant. Great place to stop, fast wifi. Very cool squid chalet style
