December 14th, 2019 Three Monkeys Coffee - BEST COFFEE IN CUSCO

Very good coffee in Cusco.
Totally recommend :)

December 14th, 2019 Restaurante Campestre Las Canteras

Inka Rey was closed, we tried to call and reach them but impossible so we went back on the road near the bridge and talked with a very nice lady who owns the restaurant just after the bridge and asked if we could camp at their place.

We camped behind the restaurant on the soccer field with nice view of the snowy mountains.

They charged us 15 Soles and had bathroom and shower we could use.

15 minutes away from train station so handy to take the train from Ollantaybambo station to AguasCaliente in the morning.

We recommend !

November 30th, 2019 Eder Angel Barranco

So after fighting with propane stations since Panama we finally found someone that helped us convert our ACME connector to a Péruvien local connector that apparently will work until Argentina. Now we can fill up our 12 Gallon (50 pounds) fixed tank in almost every gas station in Peru (that have GLP). Alleluia :)

April 10th, 2019 Agua Refill at Mini Market

There is a tap water spot here where you can fill up your tanks. To the right of the gas pump.

March 31st, 2019 Trattoria Gabriele

Traditional Italian food in Ecuador is delightful. All is made in house and even the pasta are made on demand directly when you order them. The taste is incredible, the vibe is cozy and the owners are the friendliest. We loved it :)

February 25th, 2019 No gas station for almost 2 hours !!!!

We bought a 5 gallon at this house because we didn’t have enough to make it to the next gaz station which is an hour away.

February 7th, 2019 Attempted robbery

Same trick to us today !!! Not sure if they really want to rob you or just sell you air checkup... not clear !

January 29th, 2019 Mirachi Hotel

Hotel after the cañon right next to a gas station. Very quiet 25 000 COP per person for private room. Chilly climate perfect for a good night of sleep. Parking lot available for guests.

January 28th, 2019 24 hour parking in San Alberto

8000 COP for 24 hour and we could sleep in our van. 3 blocks from the main road and quiet at night. Not a nice view but secure and perfect spot for one night after a long drive from the coast (Santa Marta)


January 23rd, 2019 Terpel / Casa del Agua

There is a refill station at the gas station next to free baños on the way to Tayrona. 4000 COP for 19 liters.

December 29th, 2018 Beside lake La Yegada

When we came here was during Christmas time so the first camping on the side of the lake was full. We looked for a spot and found this one. With high clearance and small rig you could go all the way to the end of the road where you have an amazing camp spot for yourself on the shore of the lake with amazing Mountain View :)

December 29th, 2018 Bomberos de Chitre

We stopped at the bomberos and asked if they had potable water and they filled up our 5 gallon. Friendly guys !

December 28th, 2018 Epic Road, Epic Views

This is the parking for the entrance of the 1:30 awesome view and walk to the cascada la silampa. This spot is amazing it’s worth the walk and the steep drive. Nice road though.

December 24th, 2018 El Refugio Las brisas del Diablo

If you are going to or from Bocas this spot is a MUST stop on the road. The sickest view of the volcano Barú and the mountains around. The hotel has 2 rooms and they offer the best food in Panama. You must reserve in advance for rooms & food service but it’s all really worth it !!
Nice Canadian couple running the place :)
