ADMIN NOTE: this location is closed by owners request, no camping or overnighting. there has been several reports of travelers leaving trash, not cleaning up after themselves and not obeying the signs that clearly states no overnight parking.

Also do not swim on this beach - it is not considered safe due to the massive waves and rip tides.

Any place that used to be ok for camping is blocked off with big rocks and signs saying pedestrian access only. I would consider this place closed.

There is no place to park an RV. the narrow road gets full on both sides every night between 4-7 when people arrive to see the release of the baby area turtles.

Beautiful place to walk and spend som ed time but not camping. Road is sand and there's not much room for anything but vans and cars to turnaround. Huge open beach, great evenings here.

This is a public parking lot on Federal Land and public access to the beach. the house on the other side of the road has an issue with looking at a few RV and installed No Overnight Signs to facilitate her desire to look at sand rather than R V.Trash is not from the Overlanders The entrance and left side have now been blocked by large rocks as the signs were a great source of
firewood. this is a free Federal place to stay. and has wind protection from the dunes.

This place is not exactly permanently closed.

There is a grumpy old gringo lady who rents out a place behind here. She walks over and tries to tell unknowing tourists that she owns the federal land they're parked on because the RVs block their view.

If you park off to the right out of site she will leave you alone.

The mansion owner behind the beach put up a false no camping sign. You do not have to move your vehicle to preserve their view of the beach. If you see a no camping sign talk with the turtle hatchery folks and maybe hide it.

Beaches are public lands in Mexico.

Hard packed sand/dirt at drive in close enough to the ocean to negotiate with 2 wheel drive vehicle. At present there are 4 vans, one small class C, a monster MOG and us, a 22 foot travel trailer. This is THE spot to be for turtle hatchlings release which happens every night in January and most nights in February. The road in is a bit daunting with some very tight turns. Would not suggest anything longer than about 30 feet. Sign posted says no camping but locals say they just don't want tents or temporary structures here. Spent 2 nights with no problems. No amenities and no services.

A beautiful spot near the beach. A public parking area about 50 meters from the beach. Very close to the area where they release the baby turtles to the sea. This happens about an hour before sunset each night, but only if there have been hatchlings that day. It can be crowded with visitors during this time, but the cars will clear out just after the release and the sunsets.

What a lovely place to park your motorhome for the night when you stay for the turtle release.
It's perfect because at the end of the releasing it's the night so it's better to sleep on place.
We was 3 vans or rv tonight.
Quiet night but about 2 cars with music before midnight, but it's's Mexico..!
You have a sandy road f
You have 300 meters of sandy road.
