if you want to hike the vulcano and need a spot to camp the night before, there is a free public parking lot just on the left hand side before the entrance of the "Centro Vacacional IMSS Malintzi". its easy accessible with a 2WD. there is also space to set up tents on the other side of the street.

there is a small restaurant and shop aswell, didnt go there though.

actually, there are a couple of nice areas to camp in almost every turn of the last 500 curvy meters of the road to this spot. some of them may need high cl earance at the entrance, thats why we chose the last one on top. its also the closest you can get to the start of the hike

stayed 2 nights.

telcel reception very bad

maybe worth noting: there is a gate when you enter the national park, where they ask you for your nationality and name. we asked if its ok to camp anywhere in the park area and if its safe, they said yes.

sorry for the lousy pic, my phone is old and it was dark. its actually a nice place.

Indeed a beautiful place to stay overnight. The gate is now open all the time, some people went through, as to be seen in fireplaces. But no wind protection, for us in a campervan it was fine.

Arrived late night under rain, so did not go that far on dirt road. Great spot, but require level. quite place during night, but some traffic during day. Highly recommended!

here you can buy several varieties of fish and seafood (congrio, salmon, merluzza, etc)
--> salmon 5000/kg and really excellent (we have made a fantastic ceviche with it !)

great shop recommended by Andean roads. fixed my cracked rim by driving the rim to a nearby metal shop for a quick weld. High volume professional tire service.

RUM : Wir wollten gerne auf den Platz, aber leider versperrte uns eine Stromleitung die Zufahrtsstraße . Wir sind ca.3,15 m hoch. Für große Wagen also ungeeignet. Der grüne Button im IOVERLANDER ist gesetzt und es stimmt wiederholt nicht. BITTE BITTE...setzt den Button nicht zu schnell auf grün, oder erkundigt euch.

RUM: We wanted to go to the square, but a power line prevented the passage. We are 3.15 meters high. Driving a Unimog. PLEASE ... do not put the button in green in the IOVERLANDER so fast, or inquire in advance.

Pasamos la noche allí, al otro día temprano subimos al Volcán Santa Ana. nos cobraron USD 7,50 por la van y dos personas, nos pareció un poco caro pero ya estábamos allí y realmente queda muy cerca del comienzo del sendero para subir al volcán. Es un lugar bonito y con una gran vista de los alrededores.
pagamos además 6 dólares de ingreso al parque nacional, aconsejan subir siempre con un policía.

Beautiful lodge but the campsite not so much. Cramped spots and very noisy. Luckily Chobe NP makes up for it. Staff was friendly.

Simple but great bungalow style hotel. Safe parking for both cars and motos. Clean and nice garden. A couple friendly dogs. I paid 90 qts for a huge bungalow with two double beds and one single bed. Good value for money. Wifi was not working most of the time but it seemed to be the same all over town.

totally unhelpful tourist information. went there to get some information on tonight's events, but was treated with total lack of interest. rather an office to sell guided tours, I don't think it is an official tourist information.

Official Tourist Information Office, Well informed staff and good maps! They helped me to find the 24 'Casas de las Províncias' and marked them on the map! Great service. Recommend.

Nice free parking lot on the lake which is quiet in the night. But there are not a lot of level places. And there is still a lot of ashes from the eruption of volcano Calbuco in 2015. So it looks a little bit like a big sandy construction site at the moment.

Good spot, felt safe. At the end of the road, between Holiday Inn and horse stables. Had two (relatively) quiet nights here (including a Friday). Beautiful reserve with lots of birds and beach close by. No amenities.

A nice tour can be made of about 75 km by following the road to Oudnadatta from Coober Pedy, turning left at the dog fence to the Breakaway and some other viewpoints and returning via Stuart Highway. Note that you need a AUD 10 permit that can be obtained from the tourist information in Coober Pedy.
