Something not right?

Description

Just down the street from Mayabell (GPS coordinates may not be exact). Family-run, 30mx per person. Toilets/shower leave much to be desired, but nice big sink to wash dishes in. Restaurant looked nice, but didn't try the food. Electricity, no wifi. Small rigs/tents only.

Latest Check-Ins

Stayed two nights here in our van. So cheap and close to Palenque ruins. Toilets fine, cold showers (great in this heat), monkeys and iguanas around and saw a lemur at night. Staff are a bit pushy for payment, one girl came to me at 7:30 am when I first woke up asking me to pay for the next night. Wifi not working. There is a restaurant but I probably wouldn't eat there, as the toilets in the restaurant don't even have soap. Decent place for the price you pay and the location.

We tent camped under a palapa for 30 pesos/person. There are cabanas also but don't know the price. The toilets and showers (cold) were simple but clean. It's a short drive to the Palanque archeological site (where you can park for free).

Basique mais suffisant. WC et douche très sommaire. Électricité aléatoire en soirée

Well we did find a red with black stripes snake in the men's room, lol. As the last poster said, it's the jungle. Bathrooms leave something to be desired, but I would stay here again. Paid 30p per person, but he asked for 40p. I told him I read it's only 30p and he gave in fast. Meet two other groups of Overlanders. Always love that!

stayed here for 3 nights whilst visiting palenque ruins and Agua Azul. it is a nice spot with camping for tents and smaller vehicles (were 20 foot and we were fine). charged 30 pesos pp and when we asked for electricity she said it was an extra 20pesos per night and we had to park near the tiendita. we walked to the ruins and it was about 30 minutes to the museum and ruins entrance (an hour to the other entrance) or 20pesos for collectivo. the bathrooms are really not as bad as people indicate - yeah they're old but they're clean (you're in the jungle after all but there was no snakes or shit on the walls or mysterious hairs everywhere) and have good water pressure. they only have curtains instead of doors but there is separate male and female toilets. for the price it was perfect!

it's not a great place, but cheap and okey for one night (P30/person), close to the ruines

Affordable camping near ruins (30 pesos/each) with a small abarrotes and restaurant. Bathrooms at camping area are unpleasant but the restaurant loos are nice and check the three boxes: toilet seat, toilet paper + they flush! Howler monkeys can be heard on occasion, too.

Stayed here 2 nights. Paid 30pp. They will say they do not have electricity but you are able to plug in from the shed (extension cord needed) just tell them you need electricity.
The toilets are horrible, never been cleaned, but just use the restrooms at the museum up the road during the day.
Can't beat the price in Palenque so would stay again.

Nice place, bad toilets, but worth the cheap price. The other camping was crowded with biiig white RVs.
