The camping leaves something to be desired, especially if you are in a tent. Mostly these are just gravel spots for vans or RVs to park - it's a parking area behind restaurant/hotel. The restaurant is great, but expensive. Clean facilities. Lots of noise from street. $285 pesos for small RV, 315 pesos for bigger per night. For a small RV or tenting it's 215 pesos with FHU. Don’t count on Wifi that is awful
Large motorhome 315Pesos per night full hookups (30 amps out of a 15 amp outlet).

Dogs MUST be on a leash at all times/

Restaurant prices range from below US$10 upwards. Ambience and food both excellent

No filling of water tanks allowed .

Normal daytime street noise but around back very quiet at night. Quiet time after 10pm.

Latest Check-Ins

We’ve stayed at this RV park at least five nights over the past two years. Nothing extraordinary, but we feel safe here and we can have a shower. We did the whale tour again this year and it was even radder than before. WiFi seemed to be working better this year if you park closest to the restaurant. There is also a good super mercado in town that is worth the stop for supplies.

Fui solo una noche, ducha caliente $250 MX.
Cómodo, tranquilo, tienen un restaurante.
Pedimos agua caliente para tomar nuestro café y nos cobraron $20MX

Convenient camping in a parking area adjacent to restaurant and whale watching tours. 4g on Verizon, weak wifi , restrooms with flush toilets and showers.

Food is AMAZING! WiFi is so/so. Rates are what they are. Worth a stop even if just for the food!!!

Just a parking lot behind the restaurant. Simple enough. Clean bathrooms. WiFi doesn’t work. Food is delicious. 250 peso for the night. Power no water.

Good and safe place for a night. We enjoyed the food in the restaurant. Friendly and helpful staff.

March 6&7 2020- 285 pesos
Wifi awful, not working

Been here in December 2019 and now in March 2020 and internet doesn’t work at all and no body seems interested to correct the situation...

Nice RV park, internet is awful, hot showers but floor becomes wet rapidly since door is broken!!! 285 pesos per night...

Was an OK place to spend two nights while in town to see the whales. Overpriced at 285 MX, but not a lot of other safe/secure areas in town. The restaurant is basically only seafood and the bar is pretty spendy. We also did the Malarrimo whale tour and it was 100% worth the $50. Just FYI, the tour comes with lunch which we didn't know about. We're vegetarian so couldn't eat the sandwiches.

Stayed two nights in spot 1. 30ft Airstream and long bed truck. Pretty tight spots, but doable. Lots of big rigs parked fine. Funky bathrooms, hot water, decent WiFi. We didn’t try the electric since we read the town is susceptible to brown outs and didn’t want to risk it. No filling up tanks, but can use water for your stay. Septic was on the wrong side of our rig and uphill, so we had to back into the neighboring spot on our way out to dump. Gift shop, small store and restaurant were all decent. Highlight are the whale watching tours. Highly recommend! The Malarrimo guides were wonderful and we had the best day literally petting whales. Well worth the $$. Whale watching was $50 US/adult for 4hr tour. RV was paid for by traveling companion, but I believe was roughly $25/30 US/night.

This was defenitely the best place to book a tour to Ojo del Liebre - very organized and professional. US 45 or Mex 900 and you can pay with Credit Card. Tour last 4 hour starting at 8am snd 11am including transfer to harbour and lunch in the boat. Boat ride to the whales is approx. 15 Min. so you spend 2 1/2 hours out with the whales! not just 1 1/2 hours as further south for US $ 50 or 55! During the transfer to the harbour your guide explanes a lot about the salt production of the area and the gray whales.We saw the whales very close - mating, mamas with babys, jumping and diving right by and under the boat - incredible experience.

Restaurant/ Bar had the Superbowl on TV! Nice place!

Nice restaurant, friendly service. We parked in the back with full hook hook ups. $285.pesos

Arrived before sundown and found a spot behind the restaurant. We paid 210 pesos for our Jeep with a rooftop tent. The 185 pesos price is for tenting if you are riding a bike or motorcycle. If you like quiet nights this is not the place. Somewhat noisy but slept ok. Cold showers but the pressure was good. Just stayed one night.

Flat rock/gravel parking area behind hotel. Fabulous restaurant. Pool table in the bar. Spent NYE with new friends from all over. $285 pesos for a small RV. 23’. Electric HU, didn’t use water or sewer. Shower never got even warm. Caught up on things with cell coverage. Not enough to play Netflix Couldn’t connect to ply wifi outside.

wifi not work

Petit camping très tranquille 215 pesos avec 3 services, douche super

$215pesos per night.
Each site has electrical Hook Ups, Water, Sewage dumps.
Hot Showers & flush toilets on site.
Walking distance to many taco stands & restaurants.
Convenience store on site.
Quiet at night.
We stayed 3 nights.

Pretty expensive but we needed a hook-up. We had to pay 285 cause we have a mini motorhome which isn’t different from a van in size. It’s 215 pesos for a van. Showers were hot and staff in the bar friendly. Wifi was too weak to work in the car and it smelled pretty bad in the RV park from the sewers. I uploaded a picture of the newest price list.

Came back and they increased from $185 for camping to $215 even after I was here a couple weeks ago and they still said no. :/ little bummed about the change but it’s only $30mex

Well maintained place as described by others, the Restaurant is excellent. Showers hot and with good pressure.

Friendly place - seems to be mainly USA surfer guys here when we visited. Nice little shop, cheap bar and nice enough restaurant mainly doing fish dishes

Just a secure parking area for a night. But had everything needed, shower, dump, bathrooms and garbage. Hot water in the women’s shower. I was never able to connect to the WiFi outside but cafe down the road had good WiFi.

215 pesos for 1 night including city water connection, full hook up, dump station.
we asked only for dump, was same price 215pesos but better than dumping in the wild.
they have wifi too
restaurant on site
tienda y tours tambien

As descripted. The food was very good. Wifi was fine indoors.

safe parking about 5 minutes off Mex 1 in town
$185p no hookups

The RV park isn’t particularly nice but works if you’re stopping for the night. We rented a room in their hotel which has a cute vibe but the rooms are nothing special. The restaurant was the cool part for sure. It’s very cute inside, a little bit fancy and the food was really good (we had filet mignon and it was delicious).

Cement/gravel surface, more suitable to van/rv than tent camping. Clean restrooms and shower. Restaurant was very good and reasonably priced. Did a 4 hour whale watching trip from the hotel which was excellent.

Check out our video review here:

We stayed at Malarrimo RV Park for four nights and we enjoyed our stay. It's a secure park with full hook-ups, clean working bathrooms, and showers with decent pressure. Some days we showered with lukewarm water. We also had wifi but it was pretty slow. Only sufficient for checking emails and social media. These would be our two suggestions for improvement: a larger hot water tank for the showers and better internet connectivity. We also did notice the sewer smell when there were lots of people camped. They get a lot of organized Caravans with big rigs.

Otherwise, we enjoyed the nice Gazebo, the great prices, and the location close to everything in town. They also organize whale tours with bilingual guides.


We would stay here again.

Perfect one night stop for the weekly real shower at a camping with water, electricity and sewer. Wifi was weak in our vehicle. Clean bathrooms with toilet paper. $185mxp.

We did not stay here because the owner is not friendly. As other reviews pointed out he is indeed a lemon. He talked behind our back and tried to press more money out of us.

Friendly helpful staff here. I paid $13 for a night with hookups in a fairly well-kept parking lot... it’s not really our kind of place- we took nice hot showers and then hit the road.

Note- don’t leave your septic hooked up here unless you want a cockroach infestation.

After driving all day on highway 1 it was time to find a place in the nearest large city, so we stopped at this place for the night. Parking is in the back of the building, all places are on cement and there is electric, sewer and water (which we won’t use). Hot showers are available and ok, but no pressure.

we rolled into town, got cash, groceries and then decided to stay here and book a whale tour with them. nothing special for camping vit it was convenient to town and noisy until about 8 PM and then surprisingly quiet for being right in town. shower was warm and nice, we didnt use hookups. At 21' and needing no hookups we were still charged RV rate of 230 MXN. Great cell coverage TELCEL

The owner/ management it’s a lemon! Did not stay.

Stayed one night in the very crowded campground; the city is very noisy until midnight; the outside restrooms worked not 100% so we had to go inside the restaurant

As previously described. $11 USD for full hook up is not bad especially when you have wild camped the previous several days.

Nice full hookups camping in the middle of the town. The place is a little weird, looks like a big parking lot next to main street but its surprisingly cute inside.

Fine for a night. 186$mx for our camper van. Reasonably clean restrooms. Wifi was slow in the evening but fast in the am after everyone else left.

Stayed two nights. 186/night for our camper van. Electric and sewer. The WiFi is actually very fast if your connection is good. It was quiet here at night. One shower had good water pressure and water was hot. The staff was nice to us. Good place to recharge, refuel, relax.

Good place for a stopover. Full hookups.
240 Pesos for an RV.

nice place, very helpful staff

Uhhh so-so. Hot showered but almost no pressure. Big parking lot. MUCH better option at kadekaman hotel 45 min south in Vizcaino

With discussions we did pay 186, they want 215. Good Wifi, good showers and Toilets. Very friendly.

A basic stop, RV park. Very safe location however expect some noise from the city. Toilets are clean and flush, warm showers.

Very empty. Not anything more than a safe place to park on our way south for a night.
Truck with camper paid 215 pesos... Steep price as you could also park a 45 ft motor home for that price....

186 for the night. We had a quiet night. Wifi was oke, food was great (expensive but very good).

186 pesos. Parking lot behind a hotel. Hot non salty showers. Power at the site.

Paid 185 to sleep in our truck, prices are not negotiable. Bathrooms clean and showers are hot! Restaurant looked amazing but was a bit too pricey for our Mexico budget. Walked 5 minutes down the street to a cheap taco stand instead :)

we was the only RV there, clean bathrooms, the sewer smells. nothing special. good place for one night on our way south

The place is ok. We paid 215 Pesos.

186 pesos per night with no electricity. Hot showers & wifi are included in the price. Restaurant and gift shop are in the front of the property. Didnt shop or eat anything. Basically a parking lot for gringos' huge RVs and buses. When is humid and hot, the sewage stinks bad. You will notice the rocks on top of the holes. Nice play to spend the night after a week of wild camping. Very friendly staff. Recommended place on your way south or north. In general, the whole town is a good place to stock up.

not much more than a parking lot. Bathrooms were pretty clean but old, one of the showers was missing a head. 186 pesos per night for a tent. The food at the restaurant was really good and inexpensive in comparison to north of the Mexican border, $30 for drinks, main (filet mignon) and desert. In retrospect we would camp somewhere else and visit for supper.

Ugh. Will not stay here again. Cramped parking spots. Only one or two still available when we arrived. Reeked of sewer smell. Closed all our windows to keep the flies out but couldn't get rid of the smell. Skipped showers and Left at first light.

Bien pour le prix RV 240$ pesos full hookup douche chaud pres de tout bon wifi

Decent spot to stay for a night. Paid 186 pesos for dry camping. Showers were hot, wifi was slow and only worked up by the restaurant. Food at the restaurant was pretty good.

not bad for a night, wifi never worked.

Paid 185 pesos for camping behind the hotel. Sites have water spigots and regular electrical plugs. Also flush toilets and HOT showers. Restaurant is good but a little pricey compared to taco stands.

Safe place. Good people. Food is very good. We got our car stuck in the sand dunes and the owner pulled us out. They were very cool.

Added photos and extra description.

Yep, still there, but we didnt camp, took a 580pesos room in stead:-). Camp site, no shade, but hookups etc,

got here mid afternoon after checking two others
had a very nice dinner in restaurant
$13usd a night for hook ups
decent Wi-Fi
good hit showers

good place to spend the night when driving through baja, not so much for hanging out. restaurant and bar is nice and the owner is very friendly. wifi worked outside at the level of the bar. hot showers = very welcomed cause it was freezy by night and awesome after some days at the beach without any amenities! toiletpaper and soap at the bathroom. the town is not so welcoming, you rather drive further to the bahias. 185 pesos per car/night

Paid 185 pesos for a parking space with electricity hook up. Hot showers. Wifi didn't work. Basic facility, but clean and quiet.

This is more like a parking area behind a hotel/restaurant with concrete and gravel surfaces. Showers were actually nice and hot and facilities clean. But again it's just a parking area near the main street with lots of noise at day&night. 15$ or 185 pesos per vehicle, cheaper for tent campers. Restaurant is expensive but nice. Wifi painfully slow.

Paid $185pesos for a van with no hookups. As stated, concrete pads and not much more. The shower room I picked had barely warm water, but hubby had hot. Internet is sporadic. It worked for a night.

The camping leaves something to be desired, especially if you are in a tent. Mostly these are just gravel spots for vans or RVs to park. It was the only place to camp when we went through town. The restaurant is great and there is usually wifi, although it was broken when we were there. Wifi was broken when we were here.

Camping at the motel with a very good restaurant. Electricity / water / waste water at site. Good bathrooms and the hottest showers in Mexico.

(Originally $ 14 / day)
