Something not right?

Description

Beautiful and relaxed beach camping with power, flush toilets, cold showers and big sinks for dishes. Wifi now available (pw: [Password removed by Moderator.]). Palapas, picnic tables and hammocks. Large area available for camping – however sand gets deep towards front. This is right next to Tayrona NP but not in Park. Small restaurant and bar on site. Empty during week and slightly busier at weekends but not too bad. 20,000pp - seems to be a better deal than others along this stretch of sand.

NOTE: NOV 2022 is now 35k pp!said its been 5 years same price??

A beautiful place with simple clean sanitary facilities. Internet slowly and often interrupted. Power supply 110V „South American“!

Stand for 6 days, pay 5...😀

We came here first a few nights and ended up coming back a number of time (17 nights in total). It is one of our favourite camp grounds in our trip thus far. The bathrooms were super clean, toilet seat, paper, hand soap, paper towel and good showers. The ocean was beautiful but too rough to swim in on many days. The palapas with table, electricity, chairs right by the water were amazing. It was a super chill vibe, no loud music, good fruit drinks and food at the restaurant. You can get your laundry done too. They lent us a ladder so we could do some work on the roof of our camper. Kind of expensive but they often have deals…3 nights for the price of 2 or 7 nights for the price of 5. Bring cash. Would go back in a heartbeat.🍁

We were planning on going somewhere else but a local told us this was the best place (we had looked past this as it was 35000pp/pn. We lucked out and got a 3 nights for the price of 2 promotion which made it reasonable. The setting is amazing, the washrooms are cleaned 2 if not 3 times a day. The restaurant is good and the locals are super nice. It was a great place to decompress after 2 weeks of Cartagena waiting for our rig. It is a little pricey but it is one of our favourite places on our travels so far. We kept coming back for a few more days between exploring and getting work done on our track as we waited for parts to arrive.

El lugar muy amplio, tienen baños, restaurante, zona de camping en frente del mar. El servicio muy bueno. Me dieron una zona aparte para poder acampar con el carro, es una especie de jardín. Estaba muy tranquilo. Volveré.

Oh and they no longer allow you to cross the fence so all campers remain without line of sight to water.

All as described except they just jacked the price up to 35K COP pp (!!)(over 5yrs old). No negotiation. “Fixed price”. Had a “promotion” for 4th night free but *only* if you pay upon arrival. As a family of 6 we passed on the ‘offer’…

A very nice campground with a lot of space, sand, palm trees and beautiful beach. The restaurant is really good with normal prices (e.g: pollo a la plancha for 28.000). Staff is friendly, bathroom is new.
A very nice place to stay for a while.

As others have said, this is a very nice place. Before coming here we stayed at camping Los Angeles en camping Bernabé, but for us this was the best of the three by far. Friendly staff, good food in the restaurant and free coffee all day. Not too many other people, even on independance day. The toilets do have seats and toilet paper and are cleaned several times a day. We stayed for seven nights. There are not many places in the shade though, only if you park right next to the restaurant, which is also where the locals park that come during the day. So we parked a little to the left in the sun. For tent camping there is a big thatched roof next to the toilet building where you can put your tent in the shade. The only downside I can think of is the music at the beach bar which can be a bit loud. It stops at around 10 pm though, so not a big problem for us.

We had 5 wonderful days here. I don’t get people’s complaints here, probably because they are the ones starting their trip in Colombia and having high camping expectations in south america. :-)
A camping under palm trees, directly at the sea, with restaurant, beach bar, clean toilets and shower with very few other people it’s just amazing! And totally worth the 35’000 COP pp.

Report Check-In

Price is now 35K per person. No toilet seats. Restaurant is pricey but OK. Wifi is slow and only works in office. The beach is beautiful and we parked up next to the restaurant for shade and electricity. You can use the palapas for free. Nice little beach bar. Surf too rough for swimming but you can walk 10 minutes to a nice little river to swim. We would have left right away, but really wanted to surf. The waves are not great, but hadn’t surfed since Panama. Unfortunately it’s a closed out beach break more suited for young experts. You can go down to the river mouth for some softer waves. Stayed 3 nights and slept well..

I couldn’t park here because the sand floor was very soft and my big motorhome almost got stuck. I paid 35000 pp and they return the money back

Report Check-In

first time I'll leave a unhappy comment in one year travel (but the place looked great!)
went there nicely at dusk with rain and 2 kids needing to sleep and they told me 25.000 per person per night : 100.000 the night! even we said no need of toilets, electricity, water, 2 adults and to kids.... just a place for the night.... no man! 100.000 soles the night!
wow I hope it's a 5 star camping
I can't judge on the quality as we left immediately after an incredible unfriendly talking.
anyway the place looked to be nice
maybe good for high rise budgets!

Nice place, friendly people but they were having problems with the electricity while I was there. 2 out of the 5 nights I stayed, there was no electricity.
Still, good and cheap place to stay, paid 20k per night, slept in my van, free coffee in the morning, parking right next to the beach, lots of hammocks available to hang out. Wifi is, as already mentioned really slow.

We (2) stayed one night in the van for 40.000. They made a fire burning empty coconuts which smelled badly. Bathrooms old but ok. You can not swim in the sea there, either. Parking close to the beach under palm trees. Electricity and wifi available. Being that close by the sea and listening to the waves was really nice.

We found the place nice and pretty quite. The guy who runs the front desk from Venezuela is nice and speaks English. 20k pp. the guy who runs the restaurant is a massive A hole and ruined this place. My wife said he give off some serious rapey vibes

Report Check-In

Ok for a night, nicely located close to the beach. However considering other places (Camping Los Angeles and in particular Camping Bernabé close to Palomino), this was a rather disappointing endeavor. Bathrooms are very outdated and also dirty...the price-value-ratio was simply off in my point of view for 20 COP pp a night.

This is a very nice spot by the beach with shade a very small shop and limited restaurant but nice people, other Overlanders both nights but very quiet recommend it.

We stayed 2 nights. $20,000COP per person each night. Toilets and showers available. Plenty of shaded areas & places to cook your own meals. Friendly and courteous staff who gave us tips for Tayrona and public transportation. Took the bus from here to Tayrona for $2,000COP per person. FYI, lots of mosquitos. And weak WiFi but it allowed us to our phones. We'd return because we enjoyed our quiet time here!

Lovely spot to camp. Was quoted $20.000 COP on arrival but once we'd parked they tried increasing that to $30.000 COP p/p. using whatever excuse they could for the change in price. We stuck to our guns and paid the original price. Surf doesn't look too great, maybe further down the coast will be better. Almost deserted this time of year.

since two days new prices for a campervan: 25.000cop pp(!) /night. no negotiating, even no reduction staying longer.

Good spot for a few nights during the week, nice views, palm trees, sandy beach, friendly staff. Price still 40’000 for two, a little expensive for what you get. Beers are 6’000, stock up before you come ;)

we left on Saturday as it became a competition, who has the loudest reggeaton.

We have been here last year and we are here right now, and we just love it. As we saw a many spots all the way up to north this is the best spot for us, nice wind but not that crazy like north of Rioacha, clean toilet, bit expensive but worth it. Safe, only us and gew local surfers. Stuff very nice. All we need for a beach camp.

Hello
We stop here for a quiet night (saturday night) but the day after there was a big techno night....it can be a great experience but with 3 children we don't try...!
Yes you are near the beach but it's a dangerous beach with big waves and stream(atlantique beach...!)...good if you make surf but may be not for a family.
I find the price is too expensive for this place...and it's certainly for this reason that there is nobody here...!
Take care with the dangerous fall of coconuts ....and try to find a good place between the tree

Beautiful campside at the beach with lots of palmtrees. Quiet at night, toilets and cold showers available.

20 000 cop par personne avec électricité, eau, douche froide, toilette, wifi. Chiens bienvenus. Spot à l’ombre des cocotiers sur sable dur (attention aux chutes de coco). De la place pour toute taille de véhicules et accès très facile. Bière à 5000 cop. Équipe très sympa. Il n’est pas recommandé de se baigner, beaucoup de courant, faites vraiment très attention. L’endroit est calme nuit et jour, quelques autres voyageurs sur place.
Spot sympa pour 1 ou plusieurs nuits, mais un peu cher par rapport à ce qu’on peut trouver ailleurs dans le pays.

Great sandy spot, lots of coconuts, five minute walk to the river and the national park, stayed for 4 nights and really enjoyed it. Try the hamburgers at the restaurant. Dog friendly

Report Check-In

The perfect spot if you wanna visit the national park Tayrona and save a bit of money!
The price for the entrance of Tayrona got very expensive . if you go for two days with the car in two people the price is 140000.
We instead went to this nice camping (20000 per person per night) and took a bus to the park (2000pp), paid only the entrance for the people (51000 per person + 2000 per person of mandatory insurance) and in the evening went back to the camping Casa Grande. If you want to sleep in Tayrona, they charge 40000 only for an Hammock and a basic meal is 30000. A little water bottle is 6000. Better bring your food and water :)
A nice round trip is going to the entrance El Zaino, walking to el Cabo (1h30-2h) then walking to el pueblito (1h30) and go our from the other entrance (2h30). Hot and humid but a beautiful hike ! The first part is a easy path, after el Cabo you have to climb on rocks sometimes. Otherwise you can just chill on the beach (the one before Piscina-piscinita- is the one with less people).

The owner of the camping Casa Grande said in January the whole place get super busy but when we were there the camping was basically empty and very quiet.

Report Check-In

Stayed 2 nights, still 20.000 COP one person one car. They gave me water for cooking. Bring your own drinks / water, small bottle water was 3k. Watch out at the toilette house next to the camping ground, a lot of small broken glas, so wear shoes!
Stayed at weekend and very quiet. And bring mosquito spray for the morning and night.

Report Check-In

This is nothing like we thought it would be, when we read the comments. It is not comfortable at all, full of mosquitoes and cold shower. But that wouldnt be an issue if at least the crew would be nice... but we have to say they are very unpolite and rude. So we stayed only one night and left.
ah! the beach is not clean and is not possible to swim there.. to do it you have to walk to a river which is kind of dirty.

Report Check-In

Best place on the strip. BIG rig friendly, lots of parking with or without shade. Beach is beautiful but little rough for swimming, usually a good breeze. Bar/restaurant (didn’t eat here but others said it was good). Ten minute walk down the beach towards the river if you want fresh fish-boats come in about 7am.
We preferred the bathhouse away from the cabinas it’s an open shower but fine in the nude with a watch buddy because nobody seems to use them, toilets were cleaner also.
You can buy potable water from Jorge the owner at cost, 6,000cop just return the bottle.
Plenty of power outlets if needed, WiFi is a bit sketchy, works best before 7am or late night but still not strong enough for downloading.
They have Full Moon party every 28 days which is Fun Fun! BUT the music does play until 6am...other than the monthly music night is very peaceful and quiet with a mix of locals and Overlanders.
All in all great spot, professionally run, friendly and clean. We recommend !!!

We loved staying here. Bathrooms clean and maintained, WiFi good, beautiful scenery. There is a little shop in the end of the driveway that sells beer/soda and if you turn right or left at the end of the highway, in 1.5 km are tiendas. We did some nice walks on the beach both sides and got fish from the local fisherman just passed the lagoon.
Met lot of overlanders here.

Just an amazing place. Great friendly welcoming staff. Food is great. Beach is great. We came for a few days and stayed more than a month.

Report Check-In

Stayed a month. Great people. Helpful and friendly. Restaurant food is good. It is a little pricey but it’s remote so that is too be expected. They will exchange “a” warm beer for a cold one but not a load at a time. They will also put a few items in the fridge for you but again not loads as small space and lots of people. Great turtle protection project runs on-site, informative and you can often see the action. The two dogs whana and tigers are cute and will sleep under your van with wagging tails and shinning eyes each am. Sea is not swimable only surfing but river mouth meets the sea close by which is swimable. Great little fishing village walkable and a loverly open palm tree area.

Beautiful place - you park amongst the coco palms, (almost) right on the beach. Lots of space, plus picnic tables, palapas and hammocks. Super lovely staff. Clean bathrooms with TP. Big sinks to wash dishes. Wifi that can reach your vehicle ([Password removed by Moderator.]). You can hook up to power - plugs located in tent camping area next to parking. Stock up on beers before you arrive (they’re 5000 each here). We spent some nights awake until 2am with music blasting, other nights were totally quiet - luck of the draw. We also paid 20,000pp per night, which seems expensive, but no more so than anywhere else on this stretch. Definitely one of our favourite beach camps

Drove in at night, staff very friendly and helpful getting us parked. Helpful again when we changed locations of our rigs the following day to back up right to the beach when other cars left. Very family friendly. Dog friendly. Nice families, our kids and local kids played for days in the sand. The have many options for shade, tables, Volleyball, and slack line. But things are spread out and didn't feel too crowded. We liked that the music being played was good, with good sound quality, not the blasting crackly speakers at max volume in other places :).

One oft the best beach campgrounds I have visited on this trip! Lot of room right on the beach. Restaurant plays sometimes music in the evening but you can go quite far away from it. Much better than small and often full Los Angeles in my opinion.

Nice beach spot with lots of space for camping. No swimming at this beach as the current is too strong. Enjoyed the jugos from the restaurant. If staying on a weekend night (not sure about week nights), the bar plays loud music till 2 a.m.

We never stay at the same place more than once and we found ourselves here three separate times. 20k pp. 3k beers. Able to plug in. On the sand. One spot next to picnic tables shaded and no worries about falling nuts. Owners are young and accommodating. Delicious jugos naturales. Wide open sand and plenty of options to park up unlike neighboring Los Angeles. Easy access. Tents area. Hammock area. Even when busy it's big enough it doesn't feel busy. Our favorite beach spot in Colombia even over tyrona.

Very nice place to camp close to the beach.
Clean bathrooms, open showers worked only during the day. I think it was very dry season so they cut the water in the evening.
They asked COP$15.000 per person but we asked COP$12.000 and they agreed.
We parked close to the bathroom and used our extension cord to connect to electricity.
Carefull with falling coconuts!
