Very impressive, worth the detour from Pozo Almonte. We corrected the coordinates for the entrance gate : -20.622565, -69.638436
We slept in our camper van at the picnic area marked nearby. Very quite. Beautiful with a tree(!) in the desert.

Nós chegamos ao meio dia, almoçamos na Kombi e conversamos com a pessoa responsável pelo turismo, ele nos indicou contratar um guia. Porém o rapaz queria cobrar $25,00 dólares para 4 pessoas. Nós dissemos que íamos fazer sozinhos. Deixamos a kombi estacionada em frente a municipalidade, tem polícia todo o dia e a noite também. Fomos fazer a caminhada, são 1,8km em 30 minutos chegamos, no meio do caminho chegou uma pessoa que queria ser nosso guia, nós assustou um pouco porque andava com um facão e veio falando que não deveríamos fazer sozinhos que iam nos roubar. A polícia disse que o povoado é seguro e que não passava nada, mas ficamos com um pouco de medo. Falamos que não íamos pagar e que não precisavamos de guia, então o rapaz se foi. A Cascata é bem bonita pena que o susto não deixou a gente aproveitar mais. A ida é bem de boa, porque é bastante descida, a volta que é mais difícil por ser tudo subida, mas é uma caminhada fácil.

Estávamos em dois carros viajantes, viemos para ir a Cascata de Tamanique, as pessoas são muito boas, um povoado pequeno, a polícia nos recebeu super bem e nos deixaram estacionar em frente a municipalidade, a polícia fica fazendo ronda 24h por dia, a cidade parece ser bem tranquila e segura. Nos deixaram dormir e usar o banheiro.

Nice little stop to or from Mashad. Haven’t seen anything like this and you can still see some (original?) turqious tiles. Entrance is 80.000 Rials for foreigners.

Camping around the tower is not possible anymore, the whole area is fenced. The tower is also surrounded by farmersland, so maybe you can camp there.

At least 8 pumps with diesel. The station didn’t have a diesel card so you need to ask a truck driver. We also found diesel easily in Quchan, so no worries!

Did not see the water tap. The toilets are bucket flush. I tented under the roof. I was told by the police across the street to ask the lady on the house next to the church for permission. I did and it was no problem.

Really, truly excellent hotel run by a very nice family. Brand new, spotless rooms and excellent, modern bathrooms. Fastest wifi of the 4 places we checked in San Luis, 6.5/0.9 Mbps down/up speeds--not very fast compared to a large city, but this is a tiny town in the mountains.

Get a room on the first floor, by the entrance, if you want fast wifi. I believe their routers/repeaters on the 2nd/3rd floors are improperly set up and have no internet connection. Or better yet, help them set those routers/repeaters up if you're technically inclined.

We paid 40000 for a double room with private bathroom, though it may have actually been 20000 and we may have accidentally paid double (weird story), which we would be more than happy to do because the place was so great and the family was so accommodating.

Little kitchenette in the hallway with an unlimited ozonized water tap.

No on-site parking, but there are cheap, secure parqueaderos close by.

You will be entirely stopped many different times between Pasto and Ipiales, for about 20 minutes each time. Don't start this drive in the late afternoon - it will take much longer than you think. We've been driving already 3 hours from Pasto and stopped yet again. On the bright side - fascinating to see the construction in this steep canyon, and I'm sure the road will be much improved in future!

FYI the camp area is only a small parking lot. There is no space to put out your awning/chairs/table if anyone else is there beside you. (There was one other overlander there when we arrived, plus Jorge keeps his van also in the lot.) Jorge is great and his house is lovely! But we camped next door where there is lots more space to spread out your stuff.

Seems to be some confusion regarding the two sites. The shipwreck and surfbreak itself are inside a gated gringo community with 24hr security and pit toilets. Free to park and surf and $5 usd or $100 mex to camp for the night. Just outside the northern fence is an abandoned campground with palapas, access looks flooded and sketch. The poverty along the coast surrounding this area is pretty striking, basically a shanty town of families collecting rocks to export to the USA.

Beautiful, very quiet and large CG on the lake shore. Stayed three nights. 30 Q pp incl. electricity. Very large palapa, sink, toilets very clean. Several fire places, tables etc. Enough room for bigger rigs and lots of people. Could fill up on weekends. Coming from Rio Dulce take turn left after the bridge, then follow the road down to the lake and look for sign. There are several places that offer camping.

Great spot to spend the night after a few hikes on the way from Caleta Gonzalo and before the hike to the Chaitén vulcano. Nice bathrooms although only cold showers and most of the doors did not lock.

Relaxing and great place with laid back vibe! Lots of common areas (lovely kitchen, TV room, hammocks, terrace), swimming pool, nice and helpful staff and lots of backpackers in the hostel. When we were staying (3 nights) there was no other overlanders so we had ablutions only for us. There is 4 camping spots basically on parking, with electricity, tables and light. One toilet, one shower two sinks (one for laundry or dishes). They can organise rafting or other attractions for you. Recommended! Price: 10 usd pppn (camping) + 3 usd pp per day for internet
