Very family friendly. We enjoyed the morning views of Turrialba - and the quiet night of camping. Note: We arrived during a 2-week holiday period in CR so lots of local families here swimming during the day. Our children loved it having others around to play with.

Only had chicken when we came but was very good. Soup and main dish with drink for $2,50.
They also have WiFi and plenty of space on the road to park whatever rig you have.

The actual coordinates for the ticker office are: 39.975333, 49.439649
It is the last container of the row near the roof with checkpoint 2 on it.
You don't have to go to the port in Baku. There is nobody there anymore.
Or you can call this number before you come for info: 00994559999124
So first go get your ticker. 300 dollar for a car, 110 for a motorbike or 80 dollar per meter for a minibus.
I drive a vw t5 witch they see as a minibus so i told it is 4m (it is 4m80, but they didn't check) so i had to pay 320 dollar.
Then you can choose between a 2 or a 4 bed cabin. 70 or 80 dollar.
You have to go pay in the bank in the next container. Only cash but there is a ATM next to it who gives dollars and manat. He also excepts euros.
Then there is the 48 dollar port fee to pay in the third container.
And i also had to pay 12 manat for parking in the port while waiting on the boat.
Then the waiting game starts. They always says maybe tomorrow but also they don't know when the next ship will be.
There is a container with a shop who sells enough for a simple diner. There is also a container with a cafe witch sells cay and ice-cream. He will also make you an egg with sausage if you buy it in the shop. And there is a tv and airco. He also can give you the key to the shower.
There is now waiting room or much place to hide from the sun. You can camp there but there is no grass.
Then if they call you with the van i had to go to the building behind checkpoint 1 where they check the paper when you payed the road taxes when entering the country (not for motorbikes) . Then there is the passport control in the small huts and then they check the van. This was not a very deep check. And the you are off the the ship. This all takes a very long time. 1 Guy has to check everybody's passport, also from the truck drivers .
So they called is to go at 22u then at midnight the bikers and foot passengers where on but i had to wait until the last to get on and that was at 4. We finally left the port at 6 in the morning.
On the ship itself you get a room pointed to you and clean sheets from the lady. The room was clean but it was more like a sauna. Not possible to stay there longer then 10 minutes. There is a shower and some toilets but after a day with 40 truck drivers it smells in there!!! I saw a 2 bed cabin witch had a private shower and also a bunk bed. But maybe worth the extra money. As it was not possible to sleep i side most of the tourist where sleeping outside on the deck.
You get food at 7:30, 11:30 and 19:30. But don't expect much. Some rice with chicken and bread. So maybe bring some cookies. And we really had to go looking for some water. Difficult to find. So bring some as well.
They lock the door to the cars during sailing but will open it if you ask for it. All other doors are open also the the engine room and the bridge.
At 5 the next morning we arrived in Aktau.
First some police comes on the ship and checks you carry on bags. You have to take every thing out the bag. Then off the ship and they take you with a small van to the passport check. Here you also get a small piece of paper witch is your registration card.
Then back to the ship and off. To a parking lot where they check the car. This is a good search. Also with a dog. Then you drive to the parking of the passport control building and go on foot past the gate for the paper work.
First to window 3 where they register the car and bikes. This takes a half hour per car so a lang wait here. Then to window 14 to pick up the papers for the port fee. This was 7200tenge.
There is an atm in the building.
You pay at the post office outside.
When payed you have to take a copy off the receipt you get there. Then to the insurance which is the room right when entering the building. For a car for 15 days i payed 9200tenge.
Then go back to the car and drive close to the gate. At the side of the gate building there is a small office where they write you in the big book and the they take the copy of the receipt. They checked the van again and then i was off!!
I was out of there by 13h. So a long time. There is a small cafe across the road where you can get some cold water.
The whole adventure took me 6 days. But it was "fun" with all the other people who are also going through it with you.
Hope this helps you a little any questions send me a message!!

très bel endroit. nous avions un camper et une tente et nous avons trouvé l'emplacement idéal. très calme, personne aux alentours. nous y sommes restés 3 nuits sans problème. plusieurs espaces possibles, le terrain est grand. par contre, nous n'avions pas de réseau cellulaire (a prévoir)

Great view when you camp in the bigger gravel area not the paved area.
Quiet night as we had the spot to ourselves. Don't get to close to the edge...pretty active erosion going on there.

paid 120L. nice place with toilets available until 10pm at the reception. easy to walk down to downtown. indeed it's a bit of a luck to get access to a shower but I guess you need to keep going asking. we had access to a hot shower. water available from a faucet outside.

We just arrived in the village, have asked local where we can park our 24ft RV and were gifted 2 watermelons and 4 kg of grapes. Then we met American guy Kevin who has a home there. He suggested parking our RV in his land nearby. Calm and safe.

Great option in Chone, it’s not cheap but it’s pretty decent. ($25 per person)
It is in a relatively quiet zone in the city, and near everything.
Has a big parking lot next to it.
