Description

A beautiful, peaceful, new campsite near the Valley of the Moon, 30 mins south of La Paz. Amazing views over the Valley of the Flowers and to the Devil's Tooth. Really well-equipped kitchen, fire pits, hot showers etc.
Grassy areas for tents, teepee and cabin for 'glamping'. Currently some space for small-medium vehicles - call or email ahead for bigger rigs, it's possible to park just outside the gate on a larger flat space. As of September 2017, we have 3 levelled cemented flat spaces for i-overlanders.

our sprinter is too long they said at 7.3 meters

Latest Check-Ins

Very good place far of city but eassy to go if you want by taxi or bus (better than in your car). Friendly for all Overlander kind of trip and cars. Really good kitchen, bathrooms with hot water. Very friendly and helpfully people. Clean snd nice view. Recomended 100%. Much better whatsup before you arrived. Info in photo. Good place.

Hands down the best campground we came across so far during our 7 months trip through SA so far. We didn’t want to leave...

Nice camping with very clean bathrooms and hot showers. There is only place for 3 cars. Nice places to sit, kitchen, small shop, great views.

This is the best place we have stayed at in 4 months of being on the road. Comfortable, nice clean amenities and lovely people. Breakfast was fantastic and great help doing tours and transport advice etc!

Awesome place! This relaxed atmosphere is exactly what you need after spending the day in La Paz City.

Just as everyone else says, great location, hot showers (always a plus) and decent WiFi. Beats the craziness of the city. Owner is super friendly and area is safe. Easy to get collectivo to La Paz. If you’re coming to La Paz, this is the place to stay, clean air, the sound of the river and to top it off, amazing views. Big rigs will be tough to fit into slots.

Beautiful spot, lovely hosts, breakfast, groceries and wine available for purchase. A bit chilly, but fire pits and wood available. Located right by Valle de la Luna.

We think this is the place to stay around La Paz, very nice views, 3 parking spaces for medium rigs. Good WiFi, pet friendly, very well equipped kitchen and friendly staff. Well maintained facilities. Don’t remember the price but definitely is cheaper and nicer than the other option.

What a great spot! Friendly staff, beautiful Canyon setting, open air kitchen, covered common areas, hammocks etc... You can buy craft beer, wine, bread and fresh juice from them for VERY reasonable prices. (A litre of juice for 10B). Wifi is average but works in the 3 parking spots.

About an hour in a minibus to the city center but only 3B pp. If coming back at night there are significantly less minibuses going back to Jupapina, you may need to taxi from Mallasa.

Room for 3 vehicles, no bigger than a Sprinter or small truck camper.

Great place for smaller campers and tent campers. No big rigs, as the entrance is narrow and the three sites are small. There is a huge area to linger, a well equipped kitchen, a big tent to sit or eat when it rains, a couple of hammocks, good WiFi, very clean bathrooms... There is a little shop on site with drinks and some food items. Breakfast is 35 BOB pp. All the staff is really helpful and the host Ronaldo is just fantastic!

Can only confirm what others have said! Very special place, friendly and helpful staff, extremely clean, hot showers, very well equipped DIY kitchen with gas stove, bbq, utensils, etc., beautiful views, excellent breakfast for 35 bob/person - we were lucky to have stumbled upon this place before finding this app. Contact them ahead of time if you need to park a larger car as there is limited space on site. 10/10 would stay again.

Good place to stay with hot shower and kitchen for 50bs/pers more 35 for breakfast. Good place for tent, they rent some house. We are with a combi, they let us to stay in the way to the garden in the high part in front of the owner house (private place), because the three places aren't flat and really small.
Very good view. Collectivos in the main road to La Paz or to go to the teleferico for 2bs.

As otherd have said, this is possibly the perfect campsite. In addition to all of the well executed amenities (bar, shop, great showers, good WiFi, immaculately clean, beautiful views, hammocks, well stocked camp kitchen, tours and classes) it also has a wonderful sense of community among all the different types of travellers including volunteers who work on community projects sponsored by Colibrí. There are also some fantastic backyard restaurants in the immediate area. Had a two course lunch for three including limonada for 28BOB at one small no name place. And a fantastic long Saturday lunch at Casa Andina. Its a bit of a way out of the city, but this is a destination in itself.?

Beautiful place as many before us have written. Now accessible again.
So far, our 2nd most expensive campground coming from Colombia and given that it is in by far the cheapest country, we find it a bit pricey at 100 Bol for two people.
Note: Only shorter rigs will be able to park level. Ours is 5,40m and fit level on the biggest concrete patch. Wouldn't have been level if we were much longer.

Note: there is a fantastic Italian Pizzeria close by that also delivers to Colibri Camping.

The access road to Colibri Camping is now open again and we are ready to welcome you with open arms!

Hello this is Emma from Colibri.
We wanted to let all ouir lovely ioverlander friends know that from today, and for the next 2 weeks or so, there will be no access for vehicles to Colibri because they are repaving the road outside our property. We will post as soon as we have access again or you can call us or whatsapp us for more information +591 76295658 We are still open and you can still stay with us if you like because there is a nearby secure car park where you can park your vehicle and sleep in one of our tipis or cabins. Thanks for your understanding.

This place ticks all the boxes. Spotless facilities, toilet seat, paper, soap and towel for washing and drying hands, hot showers, kind friendly hosts and fast wifi. Bonus attributes include fabulous canyon and mountain views, drinking water, kitchen area, several lounge areas with games and a book swap! Sightseeing advice. Cost was 100 Bs highly recommended.

Very nice place with all facilities and outdoor kitchen. Description like before.
We really recommend this place to spend a lot of days.

We confirm everything said before. Clean bathrooms, great kitchen, good wifi, friendly people, a paradise for overlander! Very recommended! We planned on staying 2-3 days, finally stayed over a week 😊

they told us our sprinter was too long 7.3 meters when we contacted them via WhatsApp.

A beautiful place to spend a couple of days (nicer than Camping Oberland). Cool outdoor kitchen, hammocks and a very nice view! Space for 3 (small) cars. You can take the bus to La Paz (3 Bob one way). Good WiFi. Very quiet.

Great place, one of the few where everything is just right and done with a lot of love and attention to detail. Very helpful owner. I arrived past 7pm and he actually managed to arrange a Huayna Potosí (the local 6088m mountain) trip for the next morning.
Highly recommended.
To La Paz it is a bit out of the way, either minibus for 2.60bs for an hour or taxi for 45 min.

We agree with the many positive reviews. Excellent campground. Not a lot of space for overlanders, but the owner allowed us to park our land cruiser with rooftop tent in his yard. Owner is so friendly and helpful. Tons of local activities. Beautiful view. Communal kitchen, excellent clean bathrooms, hot showers, decent WiFi, laundry services. Highly recommend!!!!

Great spot, wonderfull view, clean facilities and super friendly staff
They have a new parking place for big rigs

Very nice campsite with helpful owner and staff! Really nice, clean bathrooms with hot shower :). We paid 50BOBpp/night. Only for small campervans (high clearence a bit more than 3m). For big rigs, there‘s space outside the campsite.
They do laundry for you (45BOB/bag). Breakfast ist served for 35BOB (fresh juice, coffee, yogurt, bread, eggs).
They help you to organize a lot of tours - very recommended!

This is by far the nicest campsite we have stayed in, in South America. Very well run, clean and uniquely on the side of a mountain. You won’t be disappointed unless you cannot get in as they have space for only 3 overlanders (<20-22’) inside the yard and could put larger rigs outside gate on flat lot across street.

Great place to stay! 50 Bol. per people per night for camping, 35 Bol for the great breakfast. We also rent a tipi for two nights (200 Bol per night). Staff is super friendly and helps to organize everything you want.

Very nice place. Nice staff. Great view. Hot shower all perfekt.

Everything like written before: Really nice owners Rolando and his wife, clean toilets (soap & toilet paper!), bathrooms and kitchen. The spots for overlanders are quite small but the view into the canyon... Just great to wake up like that. We spent five nights because we liked it so much.

Nice place with great view 120 bol for one person. 35 bol breakfast.

Pretty views. Lovely common areas, fire pit, and kitchen. Bathrooms are nice and clean with hot showers. The parking spots are fairly tight and wifi was intermittent. 45 minute bus ride for 2.5b into the center.

The camping re-opened and it's a great place to escape the dense traffic from la paz! It's just over 3000m altitude, it had a great climate in October and was extremely peaceful.
Bathroom and kitchen facilities are great and newly renovated, hot showers with pressure and removable shower head (jackpot!). There are great miradors on the campground with sweeping views into The Valley. It's an easy 45min collectivo ride into the city center, the next bigger village with several restaurants (Mallasa) is just 3km.

On the campground there are only three spots for vans (all leveled). But they are quite tight, big rigs will have a problem. Also, the street down there and onto the property is a quite steep gravel road. We struggled with our old VW van, but they were very nice and let us camp one level higher in front of his house which was much easier to access.

They also organize several tours in the surrounding and offer volunteering options if that's what you're looking for. If you come with a motorbike or bike, there is space to pitch a tent or to cuddle up in one of the tipis.

We payed 50 BOL pP, if you want to park your car while going on a tour it's 30 BOL per day.

Spent 3 nights here, beautiful spot on the edge of the canyon. Obviously not cheap at 100bol per car but for a couple of nights it's your best bet. The owners are super nice people, taking the time to have a chat and offer you a coffee. Bathrooms very clean, excellent hot water at all times of the day. Kitchen is excellent well stocked, clean with big gas burners and filtered water. The new van/overlander area is finished with space for 3 vehicles ( not really big rig friendly). If you have a roof top tent that sets up off the side of your car you will need to get creative because there isn't much space, we needed to pile up wood so our ladder sat on the ground. WiFi is ok, not great..if you need a serious connection for working it might not be sufficient.

Very nice place. Far from downtown, but you can easily make it with public transportation in an hour. Places for vans are now available inside.

Better call if you arrive late !

They have 3 flat places for campers now! Beautifull and relaxing here! The gate is 3,5 m high and very wide. Our camper is almost 6 meters long and its no problemo!

Colibri Camping has listenned to suggestions form previous visitors now had 3 new level parking spaces especially for overlanders. They are right next door to the reception so good wifi coverage and also electrical hook up too. They have beautiful views over the valley below, surely one of the best views to wake up to in La Paz and as always the warm Colibri welcome.

Arrived at 20h at night in the dark, they turned us away. Not because they had no place, but because they are building a space for vans and they don't want anyone parking inside until they have finished it.

We stayed at both campsites in la Paz, Colibri and Hotel Oberland.

Colibri is much nicer if you want to enjoy days at the campsite, relax, have a fire and just enjoy.
Indeed, there is not much space for cars, we managed somehow to level our car and the night was beautiful and quite. We had a fire and enjoyed the view.

Oberland was good because we could leave the car there while going to Germany. But it's not a place where you want to spend the day and relax. It's more like a parking.

Very very nice campside with awesome view into the mountains. Bathrooms and kitchen are super clean. You can get breakfast for 35 bol, which is really good. The owner Rolando is a friendly guy, who helps you with every little problem. The space for Camping is on the bottom of the are. Could get cold at night. It is not a problem at all to ride down the way to the Camping 😎 the best campside we have had since a few month!

Great place and indeed probably one of the most beautiful sites we have stayed. Agree it's not great for overlanders sleeping in their car, but since we were the only overlanders there was enough space and we managed to level the car pretty easily. Great views, super friendly staff (very helpful and offered coca tea) and perfect location if you don't feel like staying/driving in the city.

Utterly atrocious parking for even mid-sized bikes. loose gravel of round river stones, on a steep slope makes this parking lot worse than the Death Road. There's some level ground, but trees and stupid placement of paths make even that inaccessible.
For motorcycles: give this one a miss!

We stayed for 5 nights at 100 Bol pn for 2 persons and a small van inc. elec. Our van plus another of a similar size (4m length each) were accommodated and levelled on the hard standing inside the site, another overlander parked outside. Kitchen and bathroom facilities were excellent, well equipped and very clean. Lovely setting overlooking the valley and nice hammocks/areas to relax. Wifi was not good enough to upload photos during our stay. For us perfect proximity to La Paz (20 mins bus ride). Lovely owners and staff.

Great place with very nice view, lovely owners an super nice showers and toilets. Everything as mentioned before only that you must take care a bit about water quality. I learnt it the hard way and so we had to stay 3 nights before we were able to continue our trip...

Hands down the best campground we've been to - wouldn't say it's just for backpackers at all. The owners Rolando and Emma are lovely and helped us out with some van-related things. They have put a lot of love into Colibri and it shows, it's a really special place. Epic views which you can admire from your hammock / teepee / cabana... We were able to park inside the gates on an upper level, closer to the main house. Very level spot and could plug into power. There's room for 2 - 3 vans here easily. Also further parking on another level. You can also park down closer to reception but levelling is required, or outside the gates on a big flat gravel area. We paid 50B each, which is maybe on the expensive side compared to some other places, but it's totally worth it. If you want to spend the night in La Paz or somewhere else you can also leave your vehicle there securely for 30B per day. Easy to get a trufi to and from La Paz central - save yourself the hectic drive and stay here, you won't regret it !!

We are Overlanding and found this place to be perfect. I've added a picture showing the 'levelling' required (ramps supplied). As said before, there is a flatter area immediately outside the gates. Great setting and wonderful hosts.

only for small campers. very steep and only for one camper inside. the place is more for backpackers not for overlanders. very clean toilets and real hot shower. rolando, the owner, is very friendly. fast wifi. we paid for two person and one pick up camper with electricity 100.00 bolivianos.

The best showers we had for some time. Clean, complete (with hangers, stool, curtain and door) and all working. Other camping owners should take a look here. Yes we were in the drive way. Not very leveled. Feels not really aimed at overlanders, the main business are the volunteers and cabins. Nice area, good facilities.

Very nice campground run by friendly volunteers. Nicest bathrooms I've seen in a long time in a campground. Very well-equipped kitchen, nice seating areas, Two levels for tents, along with tee-pees, and a small A-frame. Was very quiet when I was there in my tent, even though there were several other guests. I spoke with the owner Rolando (who speaks excellent English) and he mentioned that pickup-truck sized campers and motorhomes (not big rigs) can park just above the campground in the gated parking area of his home. Can hold up to five at a time.

As per below except Wifi is slow to nonexistent . Two entrances, one to slightly sloping area, possibly squeeze 3 rigs in if you come and go together (there was a single forerunner here when we arrived and we could not even get through the gate) height restriction of around 2.6m to this area. 2nd gate is around 3m high with swinging sign hanging underneath (so could probably squeeze under, this area very sloping but they have some heavy duty ramps to level 1 rig (we could almost get into our roof tent without the ladder). But a great place to spend a few days (at lower altitude than La Paz.

What a lovely campsite. Peaceful and Emma and Rolando (and the volunteers) were very helpful. A good place to hang out whilst the van is being thoroughly checked out at Ernesto's!

Enjoyed our stay here! Very friendly volunteers and owners. Communal kitchen, laundry service, clean bathrooms, and ok wifi. There wasnt room in the gravel lot so we were able to park on the flat grassy area up above by the owner's house. 50 bolivianos pp. You can also pay to park the vehicle here while you go on a trek or other excursion.

This place was a real treat. Huge open aired stocked community kitchen. Immaculately clean and stylish bathrooms. Superb views. Common room for yoga or whatever. Pizza parties, movie nights, scary ghost stories around the campfire on Halloween, and nearby hiking trails. The wonderful owners Rolando and Emma, and the volunteers felt like family by the time we left. Wifi fluctuated from great to zero, but overall that is good for Bolivia. Not a typical "overlander" camp, you may be in a slanted gravel driveway, but the vibe and ambience cannot be beat. Best way getting into city from here is either a taxi for 40-50 Bolivianos, or take a collectivo adventure for 3 Bolivianos per person. The ride back via collectivo is an adventure, as you make 2-3 bus transfers! Hike to the Devils Molar, and don't miss the italian restaurant down the street! We love Colibri. <3

The2Dutch. Everything OK Clean. Hot showers. Pity that iT is rather steep and not easy to stay flat.

50 bolivianos per night per person for tent camping. Pay four nights get the fifth free. Great properly with beautiful views. Hot and lovely showers. Not good for rigs unless park outside property. They also have a cabin and tipees. Good communal kitchen. Loved our stay.

Colibri is in a beautiful location and all of the facilities are clean, brand new and everything that you need. The bathrooms are modern, clean and give 24-hour hot water. The kitchen is big and has plenty of cooking equipment and you can buy food from nearby shops or basics from the camp shop. There are also plenty of hammocks and a lovely shady mirador area where you can admire the natural beauty of the area. Camping costs 50bs per person per night and there are also teepees for 75bs per person or a cabin for 100bs per person. The staff are very friendly. There is some parking available for smaller vehicles and they are looking at potentially expanding the parking area.

We're really like to find a option to the Hotel Oberland but this isn't a campground for RV. The entrance is not higher the a VW Bus need. The place where you can stay is not nearly flat.

First class camping option for La Paz. Excellent facilities and really friendly staff. Highly recommended!!!

Great place to stay and spend a very nice time. Wondefull kitchen and bathrooms. We stay in a Tipi room and pay 75 bolivianos per person. Camping is B50. Good place for rv, motorcicles and tents. The staff its very nice: rolando, daniel and bruno. Very noce laundry service. Great info provided about the city and Bolivia. A must in La Paz!!!

Sharing photos of Colibri Camping

Great place for motorcycles and tents. Location is a little out of town, but the views, the peace and quiet, more than make up for the extra travel if you visit downtown. Very very clean, wonderful hot showers. Fantastic communal kitchen. Emma and Ronaldo are great hosts and have a wealth of information to share with travelers. Highly recommend.

Beautiful, peaceful, new campsite near the Valley of the Moon, 30 mins south of La Paz. Amazing views over the Valley of the Flowers and to the Devil's Tooth. Really well-equipped kitchen, fire pits, hot showers etc.
Grassy areas for tents, teepee and cabin for 'glamping'. Currently some space for small-medium vehicles - call or email ahead for bigger rigs, it's possible to park just outside the gate on a larger flat space. The terrain is sloped so some levelling is needed once inside the campsite.

- 50 BOB per person
- small vehicles only, access by a steep dirt road to the lower part of the campground
- very nice bathrooms
- cabins and teepees available
- open air kitchen
- hammocks
- free filtered water
- wifi
- nice views
- We were here before the official opening, but they took us in anyways. Really nice spot, owner is great, they do have some volunteering programs as well. Unfortunately there is no level space for cars in the camping area, we had to be parked on the driveway under the house (fits about two cars, height limited by gate, but pretty tall).
