Description

A large area of concrete hardstanding in front of the house of the coffee plantation. The family were amazingly hospitable to us. We spent the night there, walked around their beautiful piece of land and ate lunch with them.

The access road is steep and there are some tight turns. We were able to access the site in our 18 tonner at 2.5m wide and 7m long, but I wouldn't attempt it in anything larger. There is a shallow ford crossing a river, which becomes muddy after heavy rain. We needed the diff-lock to cross the ford in our 2wd truck, but I dare say with a bit more momentum and a less cautious approach we could have crossed it without.

Stopped in to see the place and buy some coffee with no intent to stay. Did not find the family particularly welcoming as others described. Was very interesting to see the roasting process. Bought 1kg bag of coffee beans for 200 pesos....

We had a great time here in our way to Oaxaca City from Puerto Escondido. This was our stopping point after reading the reviews. The coordinates listed are correct and GPS leaf is right there. We are 11 1/2 feet tall truck camper and we’re able to maneuver the turns just fine. There was a little water flow through the creek, but we got through hat just fine as well. When we arrived, Antonio welcomed us and invited us into their home for a cup of their fantastic coffee! We chatted for over an hour with he and his wife Janirah about our travels and recommendations they had for us in Oaxaca. They invited us to dinner and we had a wonderful time. We stayed the night on the large concrete lot in front of their house at no cost, but we bought 3 1/2 kilos of their coffee since we loved it so much. I’d recommend buying some coffee if you stay there as a thank you. They have 4 dogs that did bark a lot at night.

Nice place. It's free. No rig larger than 2.5m. Roosters singing early in the morning. White-throated jays and parakeets in the trees.
