Overlanders were robbed here! The night before we arrived a couple was robbed while they slept in their van. The thieves broke in through the window of the locked van and stole bags and valuables. The walls around the place are low and you can see the parked cars through the fence from the road. Although there are security cameras, nothing was caught on tape. It's very surprising because the area seems very calm and safe. Be careful!

Besides that, in our opinion, this place was not a great value (especially after camping a few days in Puno at Pacha Confort). We have an outdoor cooking set-up and it was too windy to cook on our gas stove. We found out that the extra 5 soles for electricity did not include the use of our tiny electric hot plate (even just to heat water). It's just for charging phones at the only outlet near the shower..  which we didn't need. Also for this price some TP in the bathroom could be nice. Showers were hot, at least!
