I was lured here by the promise of sea views and mussels and I was not disappointed! whilst I was looking for the campsite I met the local farmer and asked if I could camp on his land and he was totally happy for me to do so, wonderful people who made me very welcome even made me dinner and lunch and I ended up having a very big night with them and stayed two days and I stayed for 2 days, highly recommend for motorcycles and bicyclists, not for camper vans.

Here you can park the van in front of the Hostel to have access to the facilities, for free! Probably the most safe and neat areas of Manizales! The showers are 5,000 per person. But it would not be bad at all to have maybe at least one meal in the restaurant. After we knocked on the door of several Hostels in the neighborhood this one appeared to be the only option available and an excellent solution! You can use a restaurant table to be all the time you need inside. If the vehicle is not too big, at night (and only during the night because this is also a restaurant) you can park in the driveway with a small cover, just in front of the house and getting your vehicle leveled for a better sleep. During the day you can park right in front of the building too but in one of those places with delemitations in blue just in front of the hostel. They even allowed us to bring our dog inside, during the day - not sure if it was an exception.

For this to be possible it is better to deal directly with the owner - Nestor (if we do not misunderstood his name), because we first spoke with the employees and after apparently having spoken with the owner they informed us that it would not be possible. And then, after we spoke with the owner, he showed being the friendliest and most helpful person and everything went as well as possible.

December 4th, 2018 ELEVATE Iconpopout

Elevate Aero Club is a skydiving center + balloon flight center + general aviation airstrip.
Many customers choose to camp overnight before their balloon flight, or camp over the weekend when they come for skydiving.
Beggining march 2019 there should be showers available and a small restaurant.
Surrounding the property there are two rivers with plenty of trails for entertainment and a refreshing splash of cristal clear spring water.
The view of the Colima Volcano is amazing.
Please check in with Alex a.k.a. "Mako" at +52 1 (312) 210 5353

Good place where to spend some days. The owners are very nice people. We spent here 2 nights, and we went walking to the Piramides .
If you want to go and see the piramides is a very good place where to stay.
Good hot showers and very clean Toilets.

We were searched here. Unsure if it’s permanent, but they looked pretty set up. Searched more thoroughly than previous checkpoints - rifled through spices, etc. Not unfriendly, but not friendly.

The attendant were very nice here. Had a hot shower and a fill up. Very nice place. I didn’t stay either. I moved to the lake. Also on iOverlander. Very good

Gas was cheaper here coming from the north. It does get even cheaper before tres largos. Well it was when I went through. Good luck

many climbing routes were destroyed by the previous owner of the refugio who apperently go into trouble with the locals.
at my visit there was no water at the still partly destroyed refugio. it has a roof and walls and windows though so it provides good shelter. we payed 10 soles for the park but refused to pay for camping. I suggest to do the same.
there are still many open climbs and and it is a kind of cool place for exploring so I recommend to go despite the shortcomings these days

It is a shopping mall with a outdoor parking that is free and no high limites. For a quick stop in downtown you can have a free safe parking and use the free wifi of the shopping.

Weird place, but no problems staying the night here. Noisy due to the highway and the pups didn't have much room to roam, but better than the alternative. there is a winn Dixie a mile before this point which you could try to stay at as well if you don't feel comfortable, but you might get kicked out. Some boats pulled up beside us but looked like they were all just camping out for the night too. Not great but not the worst site I've seen.

P. S. - A sheriff of some sort lives directly behind this spot and said nothing all night so don't let that scare you off if you need a space to stay.

Wanted 80k and not willing to budge. He wasn't the boss and refused to give us the boss's number to call.
We left.
I don't think this place is big rig friendly - entry gate is about 3m, maybe a but higher,steep and narrow raoad.

Bad news: Conaf or the private land owners have gotten wise and now this entry to the hike is paying too. 10,000 CLP per person for the day hike and 23,000 for the 4-day hike.

There is a wooden stile (ladder) over the fence from the road. In <1 km the is a red tent where the Guardia are, and where you have to pay and register.

It is possible the Guardia stay there overnight, so going early in order to escape paying the fee may be futile...

The hike is gorgeous but very slow going up the scree and boulders.

I parked at the right location and walked around a bit. I didnt find the facilities as described. no wifi, no hot showers, no drinking water or running water toilets. I dont know, maybe I missed something... maybe facilities are in the church or some shop? didnt like the vibe of the place anyways. left to the El Arbolito spot nearby.
