Latest Check-Ins

Wonderful place by the beach. Facilities are clean, wifi, and the large palapas are great to sit under during the heat of the day.

Frans, the owner, took me to the nearby clinic when I had a minor issue with my ear. He’ll do anything to make sure you’re having a great time. They also rent snorkels and boat trips, all at reasonable rates.

The coral reefs here are superb.

Stay here.

Small campsite right at the beach. Ideal for kids because no big waves. The owners are so nice and helpfull. Very very clean toilets and showers. We loved this place!!!!!

Small camp at the beach of the secluded Bahia San Agustin. You find many nice amenities here like clean toilets, showers, wifi, kitchen, palapas, but no hookup. It is space for 4-5 campers and some tents. In the bay you find nice corrals and some tropical fish. Unfortunately the whole beach is covered with restaurants, it is quite busy on weekends but really quiet at night. The 12 km dirtroad from Mex 200 is bumpy in places but ok with every kind of vehicle.

We really enjoyed our stay here! Spent 8 relaxing days enjoying the beautiful beach and great facilities. The grounds are well maintained and the couple that owns the campsite are lovely. Our dog Salsa loves playing with their sweet dog Taco. Happy days...would definitely return!!

We, @FloodExploration, stayed here for three nights. There is not much to add to the other comments but we just want to confirm them. Cleanest toilets and shower in MX, strong WiFi, great host, great beach. Our truck is 25ft (7.6m) and fit inside with no problem.

Great place! secure, silent great views, great hosts, great week!

We stayed with Frans and Anika in 2019 and again this year. It just keeps getting better. There have been lots of praise for the facility, its cleanliness and, of course, the world class beach, but Frans and Anika’s commitment to the place they live cannot be overstated. They respect the local residents and in turn have earned the communities friendship. Stay a while and you start to feel part of the community too. Plus, they are wonderful friends to everyone who visits and they have Don Taco, their dog, who is just as sweet as the owners! You’ll come for a day and most likely stay much longer!

Everything is said already about this wonderful place except it’s getting better and better. Forget about the 13 km dirt road only think about the reward you get once you reach Don Taco

Very nice place! Room for about 6 campers. Close together but for some reason it’s just perfect! There is a clean kitchen and a shower and 2 toilets. There are multiple palapas to sit under with communal table, where people tend to gather. The owners, Anneke and Frans, are very accommodating hosts who are helpful and personable. Direct beach access and many restaurants to choose from. We would go back and recommend it strongly.

Everything is as good as already mentioned. Thanks to Anneke and Frans for creating this special atmosphere and keep everything so perfect.

You have to take a dirt road for 15 km.. But it is worth it! Beautiful beach. The water is clear and calm. Lots of shadow with hammocks and chairs, so the perfect place to relax. Quiet at night.
There is not much space for big rigs, so call ahead if they have availability.

Everything is already said about this wonderful place but it’s getting better and better. Don’t worry about the 13 km dirt road, you get a big reward once you reach Don Taco.

Fantastic place where you feel at home away from home. Arriving initially for 1 or 2 days, we finally stayed 5 full days, enjoying the warm welcome of Frans and Anneke. The place is really clean, quiet, with plenty of well organized spaces to live you life, enjoy the playa, meet other travelers... Frans and Anneke are really kind and helpful to answer any question or need you may have. Even helped us with excellent recommandations and ride to the city in order to solve our tire problem. And we were lucky to meet so nice fellow travelers there at the same time. Warmly recommend this place!

This campsite is located directly on the beach and run by a very nice Dutch couple. There are two extremely clean toilets and one (cold) shower which is also exceptionally clean. There is room for four to five small to medium rigs and for a couple of tents. The place is very well maintained and the owners are super friendly. They also took us on a fishing trip for black tuna and we saw whales, dolphins, flying mantas and a sea turtle. When we had problems with our truck, they were also very helpful to find the right person to fix it. Internet is quite good, too. We originally planned to stay just a couple of days and ended up extending through Christmas when it got very crowded. The owners organized a really nice Christmas dinner with all their guests, and everybody brought some small contribution to the buffet. Highly recommended and one of the best places we’ve stayed at so far!!

A really nice place for motorbikers with tent. You can put on the tent directly at the very clean beach. Have everything you need there. Perfect to relax for a few days.

If you want to connect and be part of an open overlander community, boondocking with a unique view on the ocean ( with spectacular sunrise) relaxing on beautiful beach (fishing, snorkeling, kayak, SUP, no big waves), have the opportunity to use ultra clean shower ( only one) & toilets (2), electricity if you need to charge your techno stuffs, commun kitchen - than Don Taco is for you! If you have high expectations, like spacious space for your RV, full hookup, intimacy ( very small parking for RV), run your AC, wash your car ... than this camp is not for you! Otherwise you will really enjoy! Message to owners: you will gain by adding an extra shower and toilet, plus a bigger sink and a bigger BBQ. Hasta luego, Bernard r& Christine !

We didn't believe it before, but we stayed there a whole weekend and there was no noise of any kind through the whole time. The bay is good for swimming and snorkeling. No high waves! And there isn't any garbage on the whole beach. Wonderfull!
But the whole village is suffering on fresh water and high voltage of electricity. It was only 90 to 100 V, which was not good enough for our van, but good enough for charging computers and mobile phones. The wifi is okay but not very fast.
We spent three nights and enjoyed it very much. One of the best beach points in Mexico!

Stayed here for almost 2 weeks. The hosts, Frans and Ama are wonderful people. They keep a clean and organize place here in front of the beach. The bathrooms are clean, the shower is cool which feels good do to the warm climate and the community kitchen is great. Wifi is provided as well. What more can you ask for??

TRULY a stand out amongst the many hostels/beach camps in Mexico. Frans and his wife are experienced, worldwide travelers with a big heart. Expect a tidy, clean, quiet campsite with ample space and be ready to connect with other worldwide overlanders passing through! Frans will take you fishing or recommend local mechanics/welders/resources in the area for overlanders as he’s well connected and loved by the locals . His welder was amazing that built my rear propane tAnk mount on my rig. Enjoy the dreamlike bathrooms, wifi, tables,fishing,electricity, on site water, and good vives! I love that its gated and the community feels safe and peaceful

Felt similar to the biker down below. 150pp if you are solo and felt it wasn’t quite worth it. Nice place with clean bathrooms and showers but I didn’t like being penned in as soon as it got dark around 7pm and having to ask for the gate to be unlocked so I could walk on the beach.

Just awesome - as described by others. I won’t repeat all the superlatives. The Dutch owners were away but by their caretaker’Mark’ treated the place like it was his own - kept it meticulously clean, he was extremely helpful, even shared a Tuna fish he bought and cooked with the guests !

Great sunrises, good food at El Capi nearby - one of the best beach campsites we have been to !

beautiful Campsite with palapas and hammocks and good snorkelling options in the riff to the right! we enjoyed our 3 nights stay very much!!

We stayed at Don Taco for 5 nights, after 2 days the owners left to travel, and their caretaker, Mark took over. Mark was ready for the job, keeping the camping area, and restrooms, clean and orderly. Very, very happy with our experience at Don Taco. And Mr Don Taco himself, the sweet dog of the place.
Side note: a young guy named Alex comes by most days to offer massage. Very nice (and affordable) to have a massage on the beach. 👍

Quiet, beautiful, well put together and clean; Don Taco continues to be the best place to stay in Bahia San Agustín!

Everything positive that was said is true. Frans and Anneke thought of everything, even a hook in the shower and a place to put the soap! We were so lucky to meet them. They have an outside kitchen, chairs, table, hammock, palapa... and the beach is wonderful. The toilets are SOOOO clean! Amazing place and wonderful people. Take care both of you!

Superb little spot on a very relaxing beach. Parking isn’t ample, but it’s flat and perfect for vans or tents. Owners are great. We payed 200 pesos/night for 2 people and they had beach chairs, snorkels, tables, charging station, stove, and good WiFi for us to use. Not to mention the immaculate toilets with SEATS! I’d recommend bringing your own food to cook, as most of the restaurants are only open 11-6ish and are quite pricy.

Such a lovely spot! Right on the beach and probably the cleanest bathrooms in all of Mexico. Franz and his wife are lovely and SO interesting to talk to. 13km of unpaved road to get here but totally worth it, highly highly recommend.

Anneke and Franz are two very welcoming hosts. We spent 4 wonderful days here and snorkelled every day in this clear blue water, observing a coral reef with colourful fishes in all shapes and sizes. Just WOW.
Don’t miss this spot!

Night: 100MXP/ pP
Electrical hookup: 50MXP/ 24h

The best in Mexico so far. They are charging for camper 2 personages 200 peso a night. A real barging for this high quality and proper campsite.

A really excellent beach camp. A friendly, helpful welcome and great site. As former overlanders, they've thought of everything! Bathrooms are modern, cleaned often and always spotless. Set on a beautiful beach in a calm bay, we loved the camp and the location. 200 pesos per night for 2 people in a truck is a very reasonable price for such a location and facilities. Some great restaurants nearby but they are not open in the evening, so make sure you bring enough food/beer to last.

Very nice, kind and helpful owners. We needed to see a doctor and Franz just made our day!
Oh! Very nice spot by the way. Quiet and peaceful. Cherry on top: beach at 15m

nice spot for overlanders and travelers. price 150pp
the beach is awesome !
there's abarrotes and restaurants, all the area is pretty developed

Amazing!! Incredibly clean, best shower in Mexico! Tight for two camper trucks and two vans but plenty of palapa space to make your outdoor living area and relax. Stunning beach and fabulous swimming and snorkeling- worth the road in! Frans gives all his proceeds to the local school!!! Dog friendly!

Very nice place. Campground like Europe standard. Place for 4 to 5 overlander cars and some tents. WC like Europe, very clean. You can buy fish or bred from Franz the owner. Nice beach, very good for swimming.

We had a lovely stay here! The hosts are very helpful and run a beautiful place right on the beach. We were supposed to stay one night, as we needed to pick someone up at the airport and didn’t want to drive the dirt road too many times... but France offered to give us a ride! So we got to enjoy San Agustín with our guest as well. The long dirt road is definitely worth it!

Is owned by 2 Dutch Overlanders. Top clean western toilets and showers. Fast WiFi. There is place for 3 trucks. Direct on beach. With big palappa’s to be out off the sun. With recreation room, open kitchen. Also tent camping. There are many restaurants close by

Anneke and Frans are very friendly and helpful. Showers, toilet, open kitchen are very clean.
The parking is small and with no shade but there are more than enough palapas with hammocks, tables and chairs so that you can be in the shade all day.
The ocean is 20 meters walk with clear water and corals at the end of the bay.

Another glowing review for Don Taco! Internet worked great. Plenty of sun for our solar panels and shade to hang out in. They provide a stove and sink for campers to use. Bathrooms sparkling clean! Beach was clean and the ocean was calm and crystal clear. Fantastic hospitality and a gem of a location.

The earlier comment is wrong. Even a big MAN truck and a 34 feet Schoolbus have camped by Don Taco. 3 places for band and 2 places for Trucks

Yesterday we've discovered this tranquil campsite while strolling down the beautiful bay of San Augustin.
Besides places for campervans, there's a nice spot to pitch your own tent or use one from the owners for a real reasonable amount (including airmatress)
The campsite provides a place for cooking and has clean and neat toilets and bathroom.
It takes approxamitely 10 steps to take a swim and the view at the pacific ocean from your tent is stunning!
Recommendation for backpackers: beautiful place, clean, cheap and WIFI. There's a hut to store your backpack as well.
Besides that we had a warm welcome by the two lovely Dutch owners!

Very nice campground very close to the beautiful beach. Very clean bath rooms. Shady Palapa for all guests with view to the Ocean. Frans and his wife are very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our four nights visit and would stay longer.

Schöner, ruhiger Stellplatz. Etwas eng bei den Vans, jedoch sonst genügend Möglichkeiten am Schatten od. an der Sonne. Gut zum Schwimmen. Sehr freundliche Besitzer, Franz spricht Deutsch, Englisch u. Holländisch. Sehr saubere Toiletten!

Nice little campground with room for a few small rigs no bigger than a pickup truck with camper or small European class C RV. If you rely on internet to work on the road, you might want to turn the unreliable/non-functionning internet into a plus and instead enjoy the beautiful little beach. Little seafood restaurants and basic supplies nearby. Good snorkeling, swimming, shore fishing. A+

Best campground we have gone in Mexico so far. Stayed for 4 days. The dutch owners are extremely friendly and helped with any request. Frans even helped us with a little repair in the RV. Facilities and Internet are superb. The dirt road is a challange but we made it down there with our standard 22“ RV. Frans also offers various boat trips. The beach is simpy stunning and just very few tourists. Warning: You might never want to leave!

Great spot right on the beach. Loved the communal area to hang out and relax. The 13km from the mex200 to get here are doable in any vehicle, just go slow. Super dog friendly place!

Note: if coming from Oaxaca City, follow Mex175 until you see a sign for Santa Maria Huatulco. Unless you’re in for a one-lane-muddy-road-next-to-a-cliff adventure (which we did not want with our mini motorhome), don’t take any other gps-suggested shortcuts.

excuseme Franz (!) not Felix...
there is also nice and easy snorkelling at the rocks and the corals. Fine place to relax.

it is absolutely a place to recommend. Felix and Anneke manage this place with heart and know what we travellers love (like superclean everywhere, tables at the shadow, big palapas, beautyful sea and beach, calm... just go an have a look yourself

Very nice campground with beach access. The owners are super friendly and the facilities are very clean. We stayed here for 5 nights

Loved this place, we had a great week and were sad to leave. Frans and Anneke are the best hosts. The campground, toilets and shower are modern and clean. And it’s dogfriendly!
It’s right on a beautiful beach where you can swim and snorkel. The boat trips offered by Don Taco to snorkel and/or see dolphins are very recommended.

Nice place, got here with Rv. Bon endroit, campé ici avec un 34 pied class A. Route un peu cahoteuse mais les autobus s'y rendent. Je suis stationné en face du Don Taco, mais j'utilise les services du camping, douche, toilette, wifi, table et chaise, ombrage sous les palapa. Michel

One of the best camping sites in Mex, the place is gorgeous but what makes it more special are the owners, they really work haré to make it a great place, clean, friendly and relaxed. Worth a detour just for it.

As described. Small and your are parked right next to one another no room for awnings but that’s not a big deal. $250 for power and no A/C. Using A/C will shut down power to the neighborhood. Internet not reliable and no cell service. No ATM and restaurants only accept cash.

None of this matters. Just helpful information for those choosing this beautiful location. Fran’s has a
Boat and will take u to see whales dolphins and fishing. Busy on weekends but otherwise. Very relaxing

As everyone else has said, probably the most relaxing time spent here in 2 years. The beach is safe, the water clear and warm. Came for 2 days stayed for 5!
Road off the 200 is about 13km of solid base for those on 2 wheels. There are small tendas for basics and main shopping is 30 minutes away. The community is great and various restaurants (Capi up the road was wonderful). 150 per night for tent camping.
Just a note on the one bad experience (compared to all the others) 150 to camp....Even in a hammock is great considering it costs 300 for them to fill the tanks fresh water; it's all the facilities that cost money. I'm wondering if he stayed at the right place as the common area is definitely there.

Overall a great stay

Absolutely the best beach and RV site in Mexico!

A place to be, a place to stay! We slept in a tent on the beach. For sun protection you can set up your tent under a palapa and now they have also self made wooden tent pegs to set up the tend on the beach! The view was amazing. You can walk along the beach, swim in the ocean or lie in a hammock. It is a safe area and additionally there is a gate and fence for safe parking. There is enough space for some bikes and some smaller RVs. Very clean flush toilets and a shower. The wlan is good.There are nice restaurants in walking distance. The owners are great, helpful and also english, dutch and german speaking. They love to welcome Overlanders!

Great place!
Owners are super nice, beach is beautiful and perfect for a few days of total relaxation, a good meeting point with fellow overlanders. Toilets and showers are clean, wifi is good, plenty of shafe for your beach front hammock. Go there.

This place is a hidden gem, it's paradise. You're park by the beautiful beach where you can swim. The campground is very clean and the toilets and shower are awesome. There's also an outdoor kitchen, a very nice palapa with tables and chairs and the wifi works perfect. The owners are very helpful and they do everything to make you feel comfortable. This is the nicest campground we found in Mexico.

Commends are just right! Everything super clean, it’s like a pice if Europe in México. So if you need a break from Mexico go there. Just bring supplies- not much to buy here....

Loved this place, so quiet, beach and sea side good for children, good food all around, campground well established, clean, shade for small RV and tents. Our kids had a blast, we felt safe and welcomed by the owners. 100% recommended!!!!

Great place ! We stayed 2 nights, the owner are really nice. Hammocks, palapas to get some shade, washing area and clean showers/toilets. And right in front of the ocean

disappointing experience.
I arrived in the afternoon on motorcycle. was greated by a caretaker. quoted 150 for using my own hammock. settled on less though it wasn't clear as no one spoke English. he then handed me a sheet of paper with details on the place. no WiFi. he could get the password right and made out that is was a problem with my phone. the shelter for the hammocks leaks so you get wet during the night. the whole place feels like a compound. you can to find him to open the gate to leave. I'm really not sure what the money is for. never saw the common room. no kitchen. just sand surrounded by a fence.
I left at 8.30 in the morning .. no one was there. couldn't get out the main gate cause it was padlocked . jade to squeeze the bike through the personal gate just to leave.
im guess the experience would have been better if the people that run the place were there. but if they aren't going to have competent people looking after the place they should just close it while they are away. I wish I stayed somewhere else as the beach and surroundings are very nice.
but for 30 pesos more than these prices you can stay in a hostel that has proper roof, a bed, secure parking , and breakfast. I'd check who is here before you stay.

It's a beautiful place. Franz and Alex very helpfull and look for everythink. On the beach you can swim and snorceling. The rate is 200 Mex$ for 2 people an the van.

Beautiful and very clean camp site for tents and vans in a beautiful small bay. Frans and Anneke went out of their way to help us with everything: from getting supplies for our bus to solving engine problems. Very modern and clean toilets and shower, big table with chairs and hammocks in the shade, good wifi, and very safe. We slept on the roof of our van for 3 nights.

Absolutely beautiful place! We wanted to stay two nights, ended up staying four nights and we didn’t wanna leave! As described clean toilet/showers (with pressure) huge palapas with lot of shade and hammocks. There is a sink now for washing the dishes and a outdoor kitchen is coming soon. We paid 200p per night for 2. Electricity is 50p extra. The place looks small at the first sight but is very clever made so there is space for 3 Campers, 2 big gates for easy entering. Area is very safe, gates closed at night and video monitored. It’s a very clean and quiet neighborhood, also the beach and water is very clean. We loved it and Anne and Pancho are a lovely, welcoming, helpful couple. Don Taco is their dogs name :) They safe the income from camping for a future project to support the kids in the village.
Oh and check out El Capi restaurant at the east end, they serve delicious sea food.

As mentioned in a previous comment, this place is 100% worth the washboard drive. It’s right on the beach, which is stunning, and the vibe of the campground and the town is what you’ve wanted every other little beach town to be. Go there. Go there now. You can thank me later

This place is amazing. Quiet little village on an incredible bay surrounded by national park. The campsite itself is exactly what I wish all Overlander sites were: cool even in summer, right on the beach, lots of shade, clean bathrooms, lovely owners. Only stayed for a couple of nights but would have happily stayed much longer. Easily my favourite campsite in Mexico.
It’s a small campsite so if you’re in an RV or bigger rig it might be worth emailing first to see if they can accomodate you. Their email is dontaco2018@gmail.com.

Very nice and clean place... You will see the difference just by passing by. Was almost to "chic" for me... Anyhow - payed 75 to park my motorbike underneath a shelter and putting up my tent. Internet very slow... Beach is a beauty... loved the place. Well worth the visit.

It’s a relaxing and comfortable spot on the beach. Great sea for swimming.
The owner wasn’t there but a Danish guy was taking care of the property.
Kitchen is not for clients. A sink is still missing.
Per night it’s 150 pesos. Electricity and dump is extra. We stayed three nights.
To get to the place you need to drive a 13 km washboard road to the village of San Agustin. Just take your time to receive the reward.
When you are close to the village, take a few left turns to enter the southern beach road. There is a clear sign post at the property.

beautiful small campsite with currently shower and toilettes. everything brand new (built 2018). there will be a dishwasshing and cooking are coming. hammocks, commonroom. very safe.

I wasn't able to find this place.

I don’t think this place does exist (yet) or the coordinates are completely wrong. Anyway there are plenty of other options nearby.

This place is in wrong location - it is located at 15.69041, -96.23703

They are upgrading will be ready 15 March 2019

Is owend by 2 Dutch Overlanders. Top clean western toilets and showers. Fast WiFi. There is place for 3 trucks. Direct on beach. With big palappa’s to be out off the sun. With recreation room, open kitchen. Also tent camping. There are 4 restaurants close by.
